Quotes & Awards

  • “Kristen Simmons’ Article 5 is a gripping, atmospheric story of survival. Alongside a fierce depiction of oppressive government, Simmons has created a bleak portrait of an America lost. I could hardly put it down.”

    Kendare Blake, author of Anna Dressed in Blood

    " Amazing!!! Well written characters. Read this book so many times, I've got every other page memorized!! "

    " Ugh, if I read one more YA book where the female protagonist is as dumb as a box of rocks, I'm going to scream. It was unfortunate, because the setting and storyline were fairly good, but I am so turned off of books that can't write a strong female who is intelligent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaci | 1/10/2014

    " This was a decent book if you don't put much hope in our heroine. Ember seems to grow throughout the book but she makes decisions at every turn that made me want to smack her. I was surprised each step of the way by how her selfish and childish attempts at survival puts not only her but those she cares about more danger than if she would just shut up and go along for the ride. Separately the characters are unlikable but something about them being a group is interesting. I'm looking forward to the second book. Hopefully the characters will be expanded on a deeper level. "

    " quick, easy to read. maybe not my favourite writing style...but an interesting story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Felicia | 12/29/2013

    " This is a dystopian novel. Like if you liked Hunger Games kind of book. It sounded so good, but it didn't completely win me over. I really wanted to like it more than I did by the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 12/20/2013

    " I kept going back and forth on whether I like Ember it not. In the end I liked the book pretty well. I am planning on reading the next one, hopefully Ember will be more consistent after all she's been through! "

    " Didn't finish it, but I read 2/3 of it, and from that it seemed a solid 2.5 stars. "

    " It was good not great "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rory Gallagher | 1/15/2013

    " I'm going to be very precise with this one: 3.75 stars. It's probably a 3.5 star book, but I DID enjoy it a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Humphrey | 12/17/2012

    " Excellent dystopian fiction. The juvenile love drama was bothersome, but not as much as in the Mammoth Hunters by Jean Auel. The plot was fast moving and intense. Looking forward to a follow up book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennessa | 10/16/2012

    " Really a good read. I hope there are plans for a continuation to a series or something. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerry | 8/18/2012

    " Really good. I think this is the most realistic of the dystopian genre that I've been reading. Glad that there will be more coming. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 2/21/2012

    " Can't decide how I feel about this book. May have to read the sequel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Savannah DeVoe | 2/12/2012

    " Great book! I bought and read this book at the same time I was reading Ashes, because I'm going through a kind of dystopian-romance-theme phase. This fit my mood quite nicely, and I loved all of the romantic and intense scenes. "
