    1. I haven't been as surprised by how fast a book has grabbed me in quite a while. I loved the premise of it , it is not just another dystopian book, it has more substance and the characters are very well developed, the plot is believable and it grabs you from the first moment you start it . Highly recommend this book to any lovers of science fiction out there . This is one of the best YA books I have read in quite a while .

    2. The 13th Continuum takes the young adult dystopian in a new direction, giving us a world where some humanity at least knew that the end was coming, and did not put all their hopes in one basket. Instead they stored, for lack of a better word, groups of humans in different locations (including space) to give the human race the best chance of survival.The contrast between the two main groups of survivors (oceans, space) is interesting. The technology displayed by those sailing the skies is imagina [...]

    3. I won a signed copy of this novel from the author during the Fall 2016 YASH via Jennifer Brody's bonus giveaway. Thanks very much, Jennifer!A thousand years after an apocalyptic event, humanity has saved itself from extinction by surviving in continuums specifically designed to sustain us until repopulation of the surface of the earth becomes possible. A group of citizens from the 13th Continuum, deep at the bottom of the ocean, begins to consider what life could be like out from under totalitar [...]

    4. 3.5 stars• My full review can be found on my YouTube channel: The 13th Continuum by Jennifer Brody

    5. Если бы не завышенные ожидания из-за восторженных отзывов, может, книга мне больше понравилась бы, но теперь уже никуда не денешься.Начало шло очень хорошо. Интересный подход к дистопии, продуманный конец Земли, ковчеги, разбросанные по разным местам, система жизни под водо [...]

    6. I loved this first entry into the Continuum series. If you're a dystopian lover this a must read and every bit as good as The Hunger Games and Divergent. The world building is utterly compelling and unique and the characters are ones you can easily root for. The pacing never lags and I ALWAYS wanted to keep reading! The ending was fulfilling while leaving me aching for more. Bring on the sequel!

    7. The Continuum Trilogy- Book #1 1000 years ago, 13 Continuums were created to shelter a number of people to prevent complete extinction if a cataclysmic event called "The Doom" ever came to pass. The 13th Continuum is an underwater colony set at the bottom of the ocean. Some of their leaders over the years have conspired to implement a very strict regime in order to prevent their colony from learning about the 13th Continuums and their true purpose. In parallel, we also learn about another Contin [...]

    8. I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this book, and man-oh-man did I enjoy it. I feel like I was the first to the party (in a good way, though!). I can't wait for The 13th Continuum to hit the shelves so that I can't talk about it with other folks who've read it!This book puts a new spin on the post-apocalyptic genre. The reader gets to experience bits and pieces of the apocalypse, but also lives with characters 1000 years after "Doom." We spend most of our time with those characters in the dista [...]

    9. I cannot WAIT until part 2 of this trilogy comes out! This story just sucks you in and doesn't let go The thirteenth continuum opens in the near future as a doomsday machine prepared to go off and decimate the earth. The presidents family and other chosen set off to a safe harbor beneath the ocean as others take off for other havens. Fast forward one thousand years and some of these havens are left and are starting to structurally fail. Society has changed in these havens and a revolution of sor [...]

    10. Myra lives in an underwater shelter one thousand years after the Doom destroyed Earth, but as control by the rulers becomes more strict, and secrets about their past come to the surface, Myra seeks out the beacon that may be the only way to preserve their future. CITY OF EMBER meets ATLANTIA in this post-apocalyptic, sprawling novel. A seemingly excessive use of italicized-for-emphasis words on each page is a bit distracting, but the set-up is compelling and a sequel is welcome. A solid YA for f [...]

    11. Non-stop excitement! This is a book for all ages with strong, well drawn characters and an engaging plot. Jennifer Brody has created a vivid, believable new world for readers to immerse themselves, following the riveting adventures of the smart, plucky heroine, Myra Jackson. A definite must-read for fans of the science fiction genre. Looking forward to continuing the adventure with book two.

    12. Similar to The 100, but with a touch of fantasy. Excellent world building, though I wish the story had progressed further in this first of a new series. Can't wait until November for the sequel!

    13. An action packed si-fi tale with romance and mystery at every corner.I will right review when I get over my feelings about this

    14. INITIAL THOUGHTSI first saw this book via an email from the publishers, and I wasn't sure whether I would enjoy it or not, then I kept hearing more and reading more about the book and it wasn't long before I felt I had to read the book. THOUGHTS WHILST READINGAt 44% "Can the beacon ever be found? Will Myra's father be the next one to be arrested and abandoned in the same way, to drown?"REVIEWI received a download widget from Turner Publishing to download a free ecopy from Edelweiss in exchange f [...]

    15. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/The 13th Continuum starts out as a sci fi but rapidly turns into a dystopian as enclosed societies stagnate and begin to feed off themselves. We read through two different POVs - and each character is distinct, as is the small communities in which they find themselves. Comparisons to Divergent, City of Ember, Red Rising, and even the anime Ergo Proxy will be inevitable. But in all, this is a satisfying adventure and first in a trilog [...]

    16. The 13th Continuum is a book I more so picked up because it looked interesting more than anthing else. I didn't know too much about it, but the idea of the book intrigued me. I liked the word continuum. And that was enough for me to sign up and keep me fingers crossed that I was chosen to be part of the tour! I'm so happy I got the chance to read and review this book because I flew through it in the space of two days, despite it being 400-something pages long. This novel is a post-apocalyptic se [...]

    17. A fresh, exciting post-apocalyptic adventure that will have you on the edge of your seat!This book where do I even begin?The story is engaging from the first page. You will go to sleep dreaming about these incredibly well-rounded, strong characters; and wake up unable to stop yourself from delving back into Myra and Aero's stories. Their journeys and challenges they face throughout the course of this book have incredible stakes that are action-packed and Jennifer Brody makes them completely beli [...]

    18. The story follows two individuals Myra and Aero from two different Continuums. We get to hear both views of Myra and Aero while we are reading. Myra lives below the sea in one of the Continuum's that is beginning to fail. The society down there is setup in to different ranks and jobs. We get to learn a lot about the different jobs and how you choice to become part of those jobs/portions of society. Aero is actually from a space continuum in which they are set up military style with no emotions a [...]

    19. The plot of this book was interesting to me, and though the pace at which crucial historical details were revealed was sometimes frustrating, I remained interested throughout the book. However, I repeatedly found myself feeling unusually disconnected from the characters and the story as a whole. Normally, if I make it more than twenty or thirty pages into a book, I can't put it down for more than a few moments without finding myself preoccupied with thoughts and speculation about the book. With [...]

    20. "It is time to return to the surface."I need to let out a sigh - more like a grunt. I can't believe I have to wait another seven months for Book 2, Return of the Continuums in The Continuum Trilogy. Yes. The 13th Continuum took hold of my thoughts and wouldn't let go. The ingenuity of world-building in books and how much I've fallen in love with it lately have caught me by surprised. Jennifer Brody built a fascinated world that is not our world, but it can be as we dive into it eyes first, and t [...]

    21. I thought the premise of this book was very interesting. There are all kinds of post-apocalyptic tales out there, but they rarely go into much detail of how exactly groups of people managed to survive when everyone else died. This book definitely goes into those details. I thought it was really interesting to see how the different Continuums evolved over the thousand year period. It definitely makes you think what would happen if something like this was real. I hope that future books go into som [...]

    22. Anyone who visits Buried Under Books on a fairly regular basis knows that I have a fondness for post-apocalyptic and/or dystopian fiction. I haven't read any in a while, more than a month, so I was quite happy when the opportunity to review The 13th Continuum came along and, in most ways, Ms. Brody didn't let me down.Worldbuilding is a crucial component of any science fiction and, in particular, this kind of book and I did think it was just slightly lacking here but not by much. The truth is I h [...]

    23. Here is the point: The narration is so poor that there is no way I will ever see more than letters in this book. It is the attempt to construct a novel out of the top of the head. Every sentence is a fight.After the long prolog with the generic doom and the people descending in elevators (like in a Roland-Emerich-movie), which every sane editor would have cancelled, we enter the deepsea habitat and learn to know Myra. Myra is the superlative in the flesh, described without any sense of decency. [...]

    24. I won't do what so many other reviewers do and outline the story here. (And I can never quite understand why some feel the need to give such detailed accounts in a review, given that the point of reading a book--in this genre particularly-- is to be surprised and engaged by the plot and characters.) What I can tell you is that if you enjoyed the likes of the Hunger Games trilogy and the Divergent series, then you will be delighted to find a similarly engaging and smart read in Jen Brody's wonder [...]

    25. Yay, thank you Jennifer Brody. I enjoyed feeling the drive to finish the story and find out what happens. From the opening page where Sari, a young girl, witnesses the triggering of the "Doom," I couldn't put the book down.I want to celebrate the teens in this novel. Myra, her brother Tinker, friends Kaleb, Richard and Paige, that are restrained inside the 13th Continuum. They crawl through vents above absolute power of the current cultural tyranny. Then there is Aero, with Wren and Xander, who [...]

    26. Thanks to Good Reads & Turner Publishing for their book contests. I won a free copy of this book! Normally dystopian (aka post apocalyptic) books aren't my thing, but I'm willing to give anything a shot. As it turns out I'm glad I did. This book is a great cross between isolated societies (like in City of Ember) and militaristic lifestyles (like Ender's Game) with a bit of mystery tossed in. The characters were typical YA fare personalities with a few interesting add on's (I think Tinker is [...]

    27. I highly recommend this book. I received this book from Turner Publishing in exchange for an honest review. First, I can't wait for my friends to read this book so we can talk, argue, and just compare notes.I loved the main character, Myra Jackson. she is gutsy, brave, curious and funny. I admire her courage and loved being with her in learning about the Surface, and being determined to reach it in spite of all obstacles in her path - and there are a lot of them. At times, the suspense was unbea [...]
