    1. 22 June 2015 0.00 FREE on KindleThis was the longest short book I ve read in a long, long time It felt like one long set up and everything took F.OREVER to happen or explain I spent so much time in Jet s head, with her musings, that you d think I had a good idea of who she is, as a person you d be wrong I spent so much time in Jet s head, with her musings, about the world at large that you d think I would have a clear idea of what s happeningwrong again.Jet is a carbon copy of every other prickl [...]

    2. I cannot remember the last time that I have read a novel that was not only super short but also super slow This book wasn t terrible but I had a hard time staying focused while reading this There just wasn t enough action to hold my interest.Another thing that bothered me about this novel was the lack of back story This novel takes place in a post apocalyptic world but we learn very little about this world, past or present.There was so little going on in this novel that I can t really think of a [...]

    7. Read as part of the Get Through The Crap On Your Kindle You Stubborn Eejit reading challenge Written with the perspective of a 19 year old with a mental age of 12, apparently written by a 12 year old as well Far too many metaphors, relentless use of adjectives put the thesaurus down , so many info dumps and just honestly terrible.Even when running away when speed is of the utmost importance the main character can think 42 pages of nothing Slow, slow, slow.

    8. REVIEWER WALKI4.5 ON THE MASQ SCALEI chose to read The Culling because the beginning of this novel was set in Vancouver, and because it featured a female main character This book exceeded my expectations Jet Tetsuo is a 19 year old skag living with her family in a settlement located in the ruins of Vancouver She has spent most of her life underground to avoid the Nirreth, the alien people who invaded Earth That they contributed or not to the destruction of the human environment and the extinctio [...]

    9. Not sure how many people are going to read this when they do like me and get it free during the Indie freebie blowout for Kindle I do know that I enjoyed reading this strong start to the authors dystopian based series, enjoyed it so much that read than half on my smart phone while waiting for my Kindle DX to charge so could finish on my eReader.There is something about fantasy that really draws me in, this world and these characters were tailor made for my reading enjoyment The entire setup to [...]

    10. J.C Andrijeski has hit the mark with The Culling , the first book in the Slave Girl Chronicles Her strong female lead character, Jet, is tough, intelligent, capable and very sympathetic And, she has a kick ass sword Painting a dystopian landscape is always a challenge but J.C is up for that challenge and The author keeps the action moving, engaging the reader in the conflict, while painting that detailed and complicated landscape You won t just read the novel, you ll find yourself breathless, r [...]

    11. 3.5 stars for me good sci fi.cally this was an alien abduction with a human rebellion in the background I like Jet However, not enough information was given about any of the other characters orJet found out on the very last pages that everything she thought about those characters was false So, no true info about the other characters I am on the fence about every other character Jet has joined the rebellion I wish it would have ended with a fight or something The writing is very good Descript I w [...]

    12. This first book in the Slave Girl Chronicles series is really of a novella than a full length book Jet is a young human woman living in a future world in which we have destroyed the planet and been invaded by a race of aliens who now control everything She s been hiding out with her mother and younger brother along with some others who are simply trying to survive and not be captured and sold into slavery This is where the story begins.I really liked this first book in the series, although I di [...]

    13. The Culling The Slave Girl Chronicles 1 by J.C Andrijeski is a great book about humans as the underdog where the world has been taken over by aliens and they are far from friendly It is a part 1 so it ends where you have to get the next book to continue and leaves the reader hanging a bit ugh The book is good up to that point Our gal gets kidnapped and taken on board and the sh t hits the fan and the reader learns quite a bit about life on Earth now and what it is like for humans The ending has [...]

    14. The novel is set in a dystopian future in which alien overlords have taken over our planet after we left it in shambles That s the short and sweet summary of the novel, but really it doesn t quite describe it.Another way might be to say that the novel is a fast paced action thriller that slowly builds an interesting and believable world along the journey There are plenty of twists and turns, especially during the later half of the novel, to keep it interesting I d recommend this novel for fans o [...]

    15. 2.5 starsIt s an interesting premise that limps a bit in the delivery Things like using ellipsis in the middle of sentences where commas were appropriate were frustrating, in addition to some copy editing issues Had I not been able to move into part 2 book 2 the ending would have upset me Also there were a couple of plot points that really had me working to suspend disbelief It s a short book, novella length.Interesting enough to see how the next book does, though.

    16. If you read no other fantasy books this year, I would highly suggest this one Smooth writing, great dialog and a plot that will linger in your mind even after you ve finished This is one I ve just recently read and it s outstanding The main character is a strong female character and the descriptions will pull you into the pages J.C Andrijeski has published a number of other books and I will be reading all of them I ve had a taste, and now I want .

    17. 4.5 I really enjoyed this Jet is a bad ass chick but gets caught by the aliens that invaded earth.e aliens sound like a cross between avatar and jar jar binks Lots of action a teeny tiny bit predictable it is fictional aliens

    18. A girl, a sword, and a rebellion in some dystopian future Toss in some murky allegiances and what could one want Definitely ready for part two.

    19. If I had sat myself down and plowed through it, this book would have taken me about two hours It s a very short book Still, it was so slow The beginning was interesting and fast paced, with Jet being chased and abducted, but the rest was so slow and boring I wanted it to be over There were a few twists at the end, some predictable but reasonable, others so out there they re ridiculous and I can t believe they were included view spoiler a dinosaur Really She has to fight a dinosaur hide spoiler T [...]

    20. I really enjoyed this book It pulled me in right from the start and held my attention all the way through The story was interesting and I liked the characters, especially Jet and Richter This is a SciFi, alien invasion novel with a sort of dystopian post apocalyptic kind of feel to it And though Jet is nineteen, there s definitely a YA vibe here If you enjoy any of those genres, I absolutely recommend this one I m looking forward to the rest of the series.

    21. Not my cupDon t ask me why I can t get into most aliens stories They take me forever This one at least caught and held my attention The story was okay The characters were above average If you like alien books give it a chance.

    22. Not your bad, but somehow didn t stick with meNot sure what asked me here style or characters, but the book just didn t work for me Not going to check the next parts.

    23. An interesting beginningAn interesting beginning to a alien invasion dystopian series Here s hoping that the rest of the series continues with the same page turning intensity.

    24. An engrossing tale that grabs you and doesn t let go until you get to the last page i was unable to go to bed until i finished the book and it left me wanting .

    25. Copy kindly provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review The Culling presented as an exciting, diverse, new dystopian series with a kick ass heroine who wields a sword Unfortunately, in reality The Culling was anything but.The prose was clunky and repetitive the amount of times someone hardened their jaw, chuckled, or folded their arms, especially in the same scene, was super annoying and it also contradicted itself time and time again There is no real flow to the story any time we sta [...]

    26. The Culling is a book of pure science fiction which has chooses to put the feature on New Adult, that I did not find in the book It was full with wasted potential The history either is nice, the complex universe is original and attractive, but I was bored on several occasions I found that we missed a little action, of rhythm, that there were well too many discussions and not enough decisions The characters stay a little too much in the same spot what is too bad Jet is a 19 year old young woman w [...]

    27. functioninginsanity.c My review for The Culling by J.C Andrijeski thanks to NetGalley Now this book is not an ARC it is a re release and the next 2 books in the series are already out This is about 19 year old Jet, a skag, a human living free on Earth Yes Earth was taken over by an invasion of creatures called Nirreth and they allow humans to live in their cities but they are slaves so to be free you are always on the lookout Being outside the cities of the Nirreth is dangerous, not just awaitin [...]

    28. Badly written and creepy The version I have says it s part one of the Alien Apocalypse series, but I probably would have been prepared for the sort of book it is if I d known it s also known as the Slave Girl Chronicles.I ll start with the plain bad before I move on to the creepy For one thing, the book repeatedly contradicts itself, sometimes in ways that indicate that the author was using words she didn t know the meaning of, and other times in ways that suggest the author just forgot what sh [...]

    29. THE CULLING The Slave Girl Chronicles Book One by JC Andrijes Jet Tetsuo lives in the ruins of what was once Vancouver, British Columbia Earth has been invaded and dominated by an alien species known as the Nirreth.Most humans referred to as Skags try to eke out a meager existence by living underground and scrounging food to survive The Earth s weather has changed and mold permeates everything Water is unusable without first being boiled, and even then is only drinkable for a short time There is [...]

    30. The initial setting of this story is compelling aliens took over the Earth, and only small portion of the humanity could stay free However, the book take this idea at a higher level, asking the question, which is better be free and fight, hardly being able to stay alive, or serve the alien overlords and have a higher standard of living The plot is interesting, we follow Jet, who falls in the hands of the aliens becoming a slave warrior I liked the action and the fighting scenes, they kept my att [...]
