    4.5 Stars That was, in a word, intense I really had no expectations going into Intermix Nation It s New Adult and Dystopian so I expected to like it, but I didn t anticipate loving it as much as I did It got off to a rocky start though It s written in third person present tense, which is always annoying to read, but once I got into Nazirah s story, I didn t even notice any There s also huge info dumps at the beginning World building is extremely important, especially in Dystopian novels, but it was too much all at once The pacing was extremely slow and bogged down by information, but once you get past those first few chapters, Intermix Nation is amazing First, let s the discuss the bad stuff The info dumping is pretty heavy in the opening chapters It s mostly a lot of names and places, and I found it confusing A lot of city and territory names are used, but without context I have no clue where any of these places are suppose to be The book description says North America, but honestly, it sounded most like Eurasia to me Intermix Nation is set several hundred years into the future, so this is not the world we know at all I just would have like specific references to what these places use to be That s the only negative thing I can think to say about this book And honestly, it wasn t a huge deal once the actual story picked up.Intermix Nation follows eighteen year old Nazirah Nation, born of parents of different races, and thus dubbed an outcast Biracial, or intermix, people are not accepted in this new world and mainly live in poverty in any area that will allow them Nazirah was lucky that her parents weren t too poor and her mother was a teacher so she grew up educated, not like a lot of others Four months ago, both of her parents were murdered for being rebels, and now Nazirah is in training to join the upcoming war However, her first mission sends her to a prison offering amnesty to the man who shot her parents Adamek in exchange for aid in the war Needless to say, Nazirah is not happy about this It gets worse when her brother, who happens to be their commander, declares her official mission to be the face of the rebellion She s to travel around with Adamek and show how she s forgiven him and things can get better if others only join in their battle Nazirah is not a good actress, so a rumor is started that they re lovers News travels fast and people are too eager to believe gossip, and take Nazirah s silence as confirmation.Don t worry, there is no insta love here Nazirah hates Adamek with every fiber of her being, and he can t really stand her holier than thou attitude They re constantly at odds, but Adamek is actually the only person who was able to crack Nazirah s emotional armor She keeps everyone out so that she can t be hurt again She also has trouble with the battle aspect of the war due to her guilt over not being there when her parents are murdered Adamek pushes all of her buttons, and while she is thankful for that, she still wants to see him dead at her own hand I loved seeing their relationship develop It goes from complete loathing to tolerance, and then to something else entirely that winds up in a super steamy scene near the end There s still no declarations of undying love though, thank goodness It s just two people learning how to forgive themselves, allow themselves to be happy, and move on with life.While the plot of Intermix Nation is very war focused, we actually don t see much of the physical aspect of war We get the strategic side as Nazirah and Adamek are on the campaign That s not to say that there is no action, because there is There are plenty of attempts on Nazirah s life from those in charge who want to keep the intermix beaten down Nazirah and Adamek also fight with each other several times The plot does drag in some places, and the book felt a lot longer than it is, but I was still interested the entire time I never had a clue where the story was going, and I found myself super nervous close to the end.Intermix Nation actually gets 4.5 stars from me Only losing half of a star because I had a difficult time getting into it I know self published books aren t always looked at in the most positive light, especially when it s a debut, but honestly, you wouldn t even know this was self published debut novel if you weren t told It is simply awesome The story is interesting, engaging, exciting, heartbreaking, sexy, frustrating, and disturbing at times It s almost everything I want out of a book I highly recommend Intermix Nation to everyone, especially those who enjoy a good war focused Dystopian, with a little bit of sexy times Read of my reviews at Pinkindle Reads Reviews.

    I didn t know what I was going to get with this book but it was certainly a pleasant surprise Great premise, excellent characters and for once a dystopian standalone Expect possible spoilers Intermix Nation is set against the dystopian world of Renatus, the fallen nation of North America In this world, people of mixed races are second class citizens, often abused and mistreated The book starts a few months after eighteen year old Nazirah Nation s parents got murdered for daring to stand up for intermix rights by Adamek Morganen, brutal assassin and son of the powerful Chancellor of their country Now she is among the midst of the Rebel army fighting against the rights of the intermix led by her big brother Things take a turn for the worst when her brother made an Amnesty pact, an agreement that pardons certain Renatus citizens in exchange for important information that will be beneficial to the rebellion, with their parents murderer.We meet Nazirah at a low point in her life She is depressed and misunderstood, seen as ungrateful by people around her because of her lack of interest to fight for the cause I can understand her struggle though, her grief and guilt is causing her to punish herselfhating herself for not being there to defend her parents when they were murdered I couldn t believe that her brother can actually welcome his parents murderer in the foldI don t think I can ever do something like that, no matter how beneficial it is for the rebellion Adamek was indeed chilling when Nazirah first met him, I was so sure that he was going to be the main antagonist of the story I was sure that he s an evil spy sent to destroy the rebellion from inside.The relationship between Adamek and Nazirah is indeed turbulent but we soon realize that there s an underlying attraction between these two, one that they violently ignore I love how subtle their romance develop because I don t think it can be done any other way Thinking of them as a couple was just so impossible at the beginningwho the hell would fall for their parents murderer As I read further though and got to know both characters, I crossed that line of black and white and empathize with their struggles and demons The chemistry was so strong that by the time it was obvious that there s something going on between the two, I was actually rooting for them to get together.This is than a dystopian romance though and the struggles of the intermix and their supporters is felt throughout the book In the midst of a revolution, we meet different characters from the intermix and other races who both either support or want to destroy the rebel cause The book is also evenly paced in a way that important scenes are emotional and exciting My favorite character has got to me Adamek and I wish we were given the chance to get inside his head and see certain events from his eyes I love how his character evolved from someone who is chilling and sinister to the core of man seeking forgiveness for what he has done It seem impossible at first but he totally won me over when I got to know his true character.This is a beautiful and passionate book that deals with a lot of social issues The book is character driven and they are not always likable but they are believable in their emotions The romance is definitely unusual but I found the subtlety and the slow development of the romance beautiful A great standalone A copy was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

    Well, I really wasn t prepared for that emotional rollercoaster As soon as I read the synopsis, I knew Intermix Nation was a book I had to read As someone who is mixed heritage, I know what it s like to be of two different ethnicities but feel that, at times, I belong to neither In Attardo s debut, North America has been divided into a land known as Renatus The divides have been put in place to separate races, forbidding them from mixing but love can conquer boundaries, and the children of two races are born They are known as intermix, and are cast out by everyone but their own Nazirah is an intermix, but not just anyone she is the face of the rebellion, a beacon of hope for the citizens of Renatus But Irri has her own past, and if she s going to win over the nation, she s going to have to face her biggest enemy yet Adamek Morgen, murderer of her parents.I can t believe how well written this was, especially for a debut novel I m not suggesting that debut authors are bad, but usually since it s their first book, they re still trying to find their own individual style Attardo has her style set Admittedly I at first found it strange to read in the person she used, but as I became engrossed in the story, I grew used to it Aside from that, the language, the plot, the build upit was the perfect concoction for a story.Nazirah Nation has to be one of my favourite protagonists of all time I know I can go on a bit about how I love my brave heroines, but I think she s one of the strongest I ve ever come across Nazirah is put through a lot of trials, yet she is as hard as nails the entire time She is a true face of a rebellion, and because of that she made the diegesis, the plot, the idea believable Adamek Morgen is my latest addiction When we were first introduced to him, I just thought he d be the counterpart to Nazirah, an enemy to reinforce the idea that she is the good guy However, halfway through and I realised she created him to be so much than that Although the book centers around the issue of racism, it also talks about forgiveness How can you forgive someone who has wronged you so terribly He is a counterpart, that s for sure, but he s not necessarily just the enemy Although we don t find as much out about his past as I would have liked, his character holds a depth so vast that you can t help but feel that he s real This may seem strange, but one thing I really loved about Intermix Nation was how Attardo managed to get this entire story into just one book A lot of dystopians nowadays are split into a trilogy, a lot of which tend to fall short towards the end Although I do like it when books are a series, I was glad she just got to the point with the story and didn t unnecessarily drag it out, making it intense, dynamic and dramatic.I must admit, I really am impressed with Attardo Debut novels rarely come as good as this, especially New Adult books This genre has me skeptical, but this book just had the right amount of snarky language, witty characters and smoky sex scenes to be perfect I recommend this book 100%, it s one of the best indies I ve read yet.

    Review, blog tour giveaway forthcoming on received a copy of Intermix Nation in exchange for my honest review as a part of this blog tour.Nazirah is a second class citizen, born of parents of different races, and not even allowed to attend school Except for the fact that her parents are rebels, and want to improve their daughter s standing in the world One night, after she turns 18, Nazirah comes home to discover that her parents have been assassinated Her brother then moves her to the rebel compound, along with her best friend, Cato, where she learns about the rebellion and the part she is expected to play Her whole outlook on the rebellion and the world changes when she meets Adamek, the man that killed her parents, and realises that people aren t always what they seem.Finally, a dystopian book that isn t young adult I know that they do exist, but they tend to be the older dystopias such as 1984, Brave New World and A Handmaid s Tale all three of which I have read for the record But now seems to be the time of the young adult dystopia, which is all well and good, but that misses out some of the issues that affect all human beings.I will admit that when I started this book I got a bit skeptical, not because of the storyline, but because of the writing style At first it seemed to me that the style was a little bit clunky, though by the end of the story I had stopped noticing it at all, and that could be because I got used to it, or it could be because it genuinely got better I wouldn t like to say which it was, but the story captivated me so much that this is a book I would than happily ignore the style to read As you may know by now, I love characterisation, it is one of my favourite parts of reading, and this book did not disappoint on that front The two main characters, Nazirah and Adamek, both grew as characters and ceased to be one dimensional within a few lines of their introduction There were complicated feelings, complicated motives and complicated characters, all of which I loved The other thing I particularly liked was that the main theme of Intermix Nation seemed to be about the fact that people aren t all black and white, and once again, this is one of my favourite themes to read about, particularly as the people that weren t all black and white were often those who you would put in the good guys category.Intermix Nation also managed to surprise me at some points, which is again, something that very few books manage to do I would definitely say read this one Once I got used to the writing style I found it extremely enjoyable and an engaging story line and characters.Also, don t you just love the cover

    Galley received for review in blog tour.Loved it I want Is this the first in a series Full review Nazirah Nation is a seventeen year old girl living in Renatus, a new nation born from the ashes of North America The authoritarian government forbids interracial marriages, considering racial mixes the cause of the epidemics spreading in the continet Nazirah is a pariah, as her parents were from two different races, yet they got married anyway They also were rebels, and were killed by a government agent Now Nazirah lives in the rebels headquarters with her best friend Cato her elder brother Nicholas is a general and in charge of the rebel unit.Nazirah doesn t want to be in the compund and misses her parents terribly She doesn t get along with her brother very much One day, he asks her to go on a mission for him she is to go and find a criminal and grant him amnesty, so that he can join the rebels and fight with them The criminal is Adamek Morgen, the killer who murdered Nazirah s parents She s determined to get revenge.I loved this dystopian novel It was a rollercoaster of feelings, with action, romance, and a lot of sexual tension in it Yes, the tension between Nazirah and Adamek was killing me I would like this to be a series I love to read about Nazirah, Adamek, and Renatus , but it is apparently a stand alone Which shows you that you can write a good story in a self contained novel, if you want even a story of uprising and rebellion to an unjust government.Adamek is a fascinating character He has killed a huge number of people following his father s orders He s damaged When they first meet, he warns Nazirah to remember that he s a murderer and always will be Yet he sounds strangely good to me, even at the beginning when he was sypposedly evil The attraction and tension between him and Nazirah rollef off in waves I was dying for them to act on it When it finally happened I was cheering.The dystopian world depicted in Intermiz Nation is strangely absurd it sounds completely useless to try and segregate races, considering that no race can be considered pure , and that the concept of race has no scientific value anyway Moreover, it s even crazier to be thinking that keeping races divided could be a way to ensure health and prevent illness The rebel uprising against a government that discriminates intermixes and treats them like dirt is fair and just.I d totally recommend this book, just not to younger teens I d consider this in the new adult range for mentions of sex and violence.

    This book was brilliant It was well written and also had well rounded characters The main protagonist Nazirah, was also perfect for her role in here She was strong and I admired her throughout the book Especially at the end, when she was ready to give up her life for the sake of her people And Adamek, urghhh It was blatantly obvious that they were going to end together, despite their nemesis state at the beginning and the fact that he killed Nazirah s parents But I loved him, really But I felt sorry for Cato too This book reminded me of a lot of books, such as The Hunger Games and Legend, so the fact that I can compare it to two of my well loved series means that I thought that Intermix Nation is an imposing book It may have a few flaws here and there, but the rest of the story made up for it I literally finished it in just one sitting I couldn t find it in me to keep away It s a shame that it isn t well known yet and that it has no paperback version, because I would ve bought it in a heartbeat And I m also impressed by the fact that this is the author s debut novel and that it s self published Keep it up
