For Eron, finding his way to Victory Point and reuniting with his childhood crush Mina is all that matters. 
If they don’t make it to Victory Point in 30 days, hope is lost. Death - or worse, becoming a Forgotten - awaits all boys unable to finish. 
The Selection is cruel. The stakes are high. Losing is not an option.

Decent start to a series

This book is a slightly odd mix for me, you have that well-worn plot device of a deadly game or coming of age trial, but it is done pretty well overall with the author managing to avoid some of the worst clichés of that type of plot.

The world-building is good overall, but quite a lot of that may not be relevant to subsequent books as it related directly to the selection and it's setting, which is completed by the end of this first book. The characters are fairly well-realised on the whole, but the main character didn't grab me as much as he could have done, I was interested in what happened to him rather than fully caring what happened to him.

The narrator mostly did a good job with the book, his narration had a clear and pleasant tone to it, but could have maybe made some of the main characters a bit more distinctive as that would have probably helped me connect better with the book.

Overall, I did enjoy this book, however it was merely a good setup for an ongoing series and a good standalone book rather than really excelling in either aspect, I think it is one that could grow on me if I enjoy the subsequent books in the series.

A good first book

While it might not have been the most mentally stimulating read it was satisfying and never slow. You get the story without too much extra. Brutal, traitorous, heart wrenching.
