In this breathless story of impossible love, perfection comes at a deadly cost.

For Davis Morrow, perfection is a daily reality. Like all Priors, Davis has spent her whole life primed to be smarter, stronger, and more graceful than the lowly Imperfects, or “Imps.” A fiercely ambitious ballerina, Davis is only a few weeks away from qualifying for the Olympiads and finally living up to her mother’s legacy when she meets Cole, a mysterious boy who leaves her with more questions each time he disappears.

Davis has no idea that Cole has his own agenda, or that he’s a rising star in the FEUDS, an underground fighting ring where Priors gamble on Imps. Cole has every reason to hate Davis—her father’s campaign hinges on the total segregation of the Imps and Priors—but despite his best efforts, Cole finds himself as drawn to Davis as she is to him.

Then Narxis, a deadly virus, takes its hold--and Davis’s friends start dying. When the Priors refuse to acknowledge the epidemic, Davis has no one to turn to but Cole. Falling in love was never part of their plan, but their love may be the only thing that can save her world...in Avery Hastings's Feuds.



I didn't think I would like this book as much as I did.  I expected a typical dystopian that has the same storyline as every other book.  Although I did enjoy this book- there were elements that were familiar (but lets be honest, that is a common occurrence in books).  I don't think those similarities took away from the story at all though.

I enjoyed the relationship between Davis and Cole, and although things seem to get heavy quickly- Davis realizes that perhaps this is a stupid idea.  I enjoyed reading the idea of a people who are so economically in the advantage are actually at a disadvantage and they don't even realize it.

It was interesting reading about people who have become so advanced in technology that they are able to make themselves better.  Then those people are the same ones who have a virus that can kill them easily.  It was an interesting look at how nature is kept in check and the balance of life and death.

Feuds was a good book  and a solid start to a new dystopian series.
