FREEDOM TRIALS, by Meredith Tate, Page Street Publishing Co.


Evelyn Summers is imprisoned for a crime that was wiped from her memory.

In order for Evelyn to be released, she―along with other “reformed” prisoners―must pass seven mental, physical, and virtual challenges known as the Freedom Trials. One mistake means execution and, with her history of being a snitch, her fellow inmates will do everything they can to get revenge.

When new prisoner Alex Martinez arrives, armed with secrets about Evelyn’s missing memories, she must make a choice. She can follow the rules to win and walk free, or covertly uncover details of the crime that sent her there. But competing in the trials and dredging up her erased past may cost Evelyn the one thing more valuable than freedom: her life.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

First, I must say I loved the premise! I couldn’t wait to see how the author pulled off the story.

Violence of a justice system that is geared to a set of tests to determine if a criminal should live or die. In this dystopian world, Evelyn has everything against her as she waits to be released as a ‘reformed’ prisoner.  In order to be released she has to pass a series of seven tests.  Others don’t like her, don’t like her reputation as a snitch and want to see her dead.

How can you not be interested in this?  Tate’s science fiction is bang on! I love the characters and their development, the world building and setting, and the action-packed, fast paced plot.  It’s a page turner and if you like science fictions, you’ll love this one.
