Roman Irvine is a disgruntled IT Technician for the Divinity Bureau, a government agency that uses random selection to decide who lives and who dies. In a world where overpopulation has lead to pollution, a crippled economy, and a world in crisis, he's accepted the bureau's activities as a necessity... until he meets April McIntyre.
April has every reason to be suspicious of Roman. He works for the Divinity Bureau, which sent her father to an early grave. But he's also sweet and loyal, and unbeknownst to her, he saved her life. As Roman and April fall deeper in love, the deeper they're thrust into the politics of deciding who lives and who dies. Someone wants April dead. And the bureau's process of random selection may not be so random after all...
I enjoyed this book a lot! A dystopian romance with a dose of tech is a lot of fun to read! I promise no spoilers, but this time it is hard to keep my promise. You are going to enjoy the developing relationship of April and Roman as they seek answers and find far more than they want.
I really like the structure of this book, mostly written in first person POV, Roman and April have alternating chapters; providing intimate access to the motivations and thoughts of each. There is a good balance of action and dialog that helps to move the story along at a nice pace.
I loved the story, the structure, and the pacing! Divinity bureau gets 5 stars!
