It’s an honor to be chosen for The Testing. But it’s not enough to pass The Testing. Cia will have to survive it.

The Testing Guide is the short story prequel to The Testing, the first novel in the stunning and epic Testing Trilogy.



My thoughts:

What a great start. I was so upset as I was reading because my percentage kept going up really fast and I felt like the story had JUST started.

It’s definitely a prequel but it gives just enough information about The Testing that I was left wondering what in the world was going to happen. At the beginning of the book you read about what an honor it is to be chosen but at the same time it seems like such a scary thing. But in this world every step you take can be scary.

Very post apocalyptic and totally thrilling, even for a prequel. Although you don’t learn much about the government but you do learn about how they got into the shape they are in. And Joelle did this by having Cia study for her test. So, as she’s studying you’re reading about what happened. Never did all the information bog the story down. I can’t wait to read The Testing because all this prequel did was whet my appetite. I want more, I want more!
