I was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of this book from 

Title: Gambit 
Series: The Prodigy Chronicles Book 1
Author: C.L. Denault 
Publisher: REUTS Publications 

In Earth’s battle-ridden future, humans have evolved. Those with extraordinary skills rise to power and fame. Those without live in poverty.

Sixteen-year-old Willow Kent believed she was normal. But when a genetically-advanced military officer shows up in her village and questions her identity, long-buried secrets begin to emerge. With remarkable skills and a shocking genetic code the Core and its enemies will do anything to obtain, Willow suddenly finds the freedom she craves slipping through her fingers. Greed, corruption, and genetic tampering threaten every aspect of her existence as she’s thrust, unwilling, into the sophisticated culture of the elite Core city. To ensure peace, she must leave the past behind, marry a man she’s never met, and submit to the authority of a relentless officer with a hidden agenda of his own.
Her life has become a dangerous game. How much will she sacrifice in order to win?

Rating: I will be giving this book a 4 out of 5 stars. When I first started this book off, to me it seemed a little slow, but at the same time that is to be expected because the author is setting the stage for what was to come. This book had me constantly turning pages and wanting more. The secrets in this book is what keeps you interested, especially as the secrets build. Willow is such a strong character and the twists and turns in the book make you see all different sides of her. It might just be me, but I really love it when the protagonist in a story has character development, changes due to the events in the book, and grows from the struggles that they face. Willow definitely changes in this book nd her emotions are what bring this book to life. Without giving too much away, if you liked the hunger games then you should definitely check this book out, especially if you like the dystopian genre.
