Definition of PAWN:
a chess piece of the smallest size and value. A pawn moves one square forward along its file if unobstructed (or two on the first move), or one square diagonally forward when making a capture. Each player begins with eight pawns on the second rank, and can promote a pawn to become any other piece (typically a queen) if it reaches the opponent's end of the board.
a person used by others for their own purposes.
This Author is from Michigan, which I am also, so I really wanted to like this for that reason alone. And, I will say I liked it, I just wasn't wowed by it. I feel if I had read this when it first came out, (before I read about 50 other dystopians, give or take a few) I would have loved it.
Overall, It's written well, the characters are mostly likeable. There's a plethora of intrigue, secrets, lies and twists; some of which are only mentioned in this first book of the Blackcoat Rebellion Series. And some, unfortunately, that left me feeling confused and disconnected.
⇝Sex Factor⇜ Not really a factor, but there is mention of it.
