Uncaged Review: The Selection by Jason J. Nugent

The Selection
Jason J. Nugent
SciFi/Dystopian

Humans colonized the planet Kepler 186f after Earth’s near total global collapse. Soon after, supply missions ended leaving the colonists to themselves, renaming the planet Anastasia and building a new society far different than Earth’s.

As population imbalance threatened stability in the settlements, a horrific and brutal institution known as The Selection was created….

Uncaged Review: Every year on a male’s 18th birthday on the planet of Anastasia, The Selection begins a battle that only the strongest males can survive as a way to over rid the high population. Of the male species if the strongest males succeed, they will have a wife pick them.

I got caught up on Eron’s story and the troubles he had along the way to the safe point at victory point.
I rooted for Eron and hoped he survived.
This was a brilliant read and put me mind of another brilliant read, a Japanese favorite called Battle Royal. Only The Selection has not just other people to cope with it has scary beasts.
I finished this in one sitting as I wanted to know what happened straight away. If there is ever a book 2 coming out I can’t wait.
Another book I highly recommended for young adult readers. Reviewed by Jennifer
