As one of the last Untamed humans left in the world, Seven’s life has always been controlled by tight rules. Stay away from the Enhanced. Don’t question your leader. And, most importantly, never switch sides--because once you’re Enhanced there’s no going back. Even if you have become the perfect human being.

But after a disastrous raid on an Enhanced city, Seven soon finds herself in her enemy’s power. Realizing it’s only a matter of time before she too develops a taste for the chemical augmenters responsible for the erosion of humanity, Seven knows she must act quickly if she’s to escape and save her family from the same fate.

Yet, as one of the most powerful Seers that the Untamed and Enhanced have ever known, Seven quickly discovers that she alone holds the key to the survival of only one race. But things aren’t clear-cut anymore, and with Seven now questioning the very beliefs she was raised on, she knows she has an important choice to make. One that has two very different outcomes.

Seven must choose wisely whose side she joins, for the War of Humanity is underway, and Death never takes kindly to traitors.

YA Review My Thoughts

Untamed is the first book in the young adult dystopian series of the same name by Author Madeline Dyer. Untamed is such a cool concept! It is set in a Dystopian world where the population has been Enhanced with chemical augmenters, and there is a divide between the Enhanced and the remaining unenhanced normal humans. I thought Untamed was a really great book and a great start to what looks like it is going to be a really action packed and interesting series. I can’t wait  to see where the books are going to go from here.

In Untamed we meet our main character Seven, who is a human and is also a seer. She finds herself in a unique position caught between the humans and the enhanced because of her visions. In untamed, people can choose to become something more something better (so they say) by enhancing physical aspects of themselves and by using chemical augmenters that help keep them happy and their moods stabilized. I found this concept to be so interesting because the book brought up different ideas of the good guys and evil and all of the shades in between. I loved watching Seven think about everything critically. She starts to question the things she has been told growing up and it was really fascinating to see some of the secrets in the book play out.

This book was a fast paced adventure that reminded me of everything that I love about a good dystopian story. There are great characters, an interesting futuristic world at war, and plenty of secrets. This book is fast paced from the start to the finish and I can’t wait to see where it is going to go from here! I can’t wait for book two!
