Review: The Soterion Mission Trilogy by Stewart Ross

Hi everybody!

Hope your week is off to a great start. Today, I’m reviewing The Soterion Mission Trilogy. I’d love to know what you think of these books in the comments or on Twitter if you’ve read them.

*I received copies of this trilogy in exchange for an honest review*

In this YA dystopian trilogy, Stewart Ross explores a world in which adults no longer exist and a mutation in DNA means no one lives past the age of 19.

I found the concept of this series really interesting, and I thought the worldbuilding was excellent. I found it fairly unique, and enjoyed seeing the story from the point of views of both the peaceful Constants and brutal Zeds.

Another part of the books I liked were that the characters, particularly Cyrus, were generally likeable and even though their lives are obviously very different from mine I felt able to empathise with them as they came across as well-rounded, complicated people.

Finally, I really appreciated the glossaries at the back of books 2 and 3, as it helped me make sense of more aspects of the world and the language the characters use.

However, I wasn’t always desperate to read on throughout the series as the chapters are fairly long, and I also thought the violence throughout was quite graphic in places for my tastes.

Overall, even though this is isn’t usually my sort of book, I still enjoyed The Soterion Mission Trilogy and it’s definitely one of the best dystopias I’ve read, so would recommend it to anyone who enjoys this genre as I personally enjoyed it more than the Hunger Games.

3.5 stars 🌟🌟🌟
