Even though my introduction to author Cathrine Goldstein was in the second book of her series, I am very interested in her writing style.

The most apt description of THE COUPLING is a dystopian story that has a strong flavor of The Hunger Games. It's the second part of The Letting series, which highlights characters who have to choose between duty and love.

While I was able to follow the story fairly well, my recommendation is to read the series in sequence. Unfortunately, I missed a lot of the framework. The author did a fantastic job bringing the story to life, but the events of the first book played a significant role in the second.

I found Veronica to be an exceptionally strong female character dealing with significant challenges. Against a backdrop of a civil war, Veronica finds herself thrown into the spotlight.

In a culture where blood is apparently a commodity and procreation is regulated by the government, the battle to achieve peace wages on. If I had to guess, I'd say there will be more books in this series because the potential is there.
