A toxic river divides nineteen-year-old Violet Bates's world by gender.
Women rule the East. Men rule the West.
Welcome to the lands of Matrus and Patrus...

Ever since the death of her mother, Violet's life has been shadowed by bad luck. Already a prisoner to her own nation, now after two unfortunate incidents resulting in womanslaughter, she has been sentenced to death.

But one decision could save her life.

One decision to enter the kingdom of Patrus, where men rule and women submit.

Everything about the patriarchy defies Violet's identity, but she must sacrifice everything if she wishes to survive the forbidden kingdom... including forbidden love.

How much of yourself could you give up to keep yourself alive?

I recently read Bella's A Shade of Vampire, and have been looking forward to finding out more about her upcoming release. THE GENDER GAME sounds like my kind of read. I'm looking forward to reading Violet's story. I'll admit, if I picked up books solely based on covers, this is one I'd definitely pick up. I'm loving this cover. Honestly, between the synopsis, the cover, and the book trailer, I'm sold! 

Which book are you waiting to get your hands on?



"Bella takes this genre to a new level. Imagine the intrigue of Divergentthe suspense of The Maze Runner and the heart-pounding excitement of The Hunger Games. That is the magic Bella is working with her new novel The Gender Game."

"The chemistry between the characters is INTENSE. Forbidden romance at its best!" 

"You can never predict where Bella Forrest will take a story!"

"Intriguedanger and mystery at every corner."

"Once I started reading, I knew I wouldn't be able to stop. My heart raced along with Violet's [...] The twists and turns so far in this book have left my mouth hanging agape."

"Intrigue, espionage, and a strong, smart female at the center of it all. Had me sucked in from the get go."
