Rose comes from the capital of the Confederation of Cities where its citizens live in luxury and the greatest fashion statement of all is being Altered. People change everything about the way they look as often as they do their hairstyle but Rose is different.

Flynn lives in the Land of the Unaltered and hates the capitol and everything it stands for. So when a spoiled capital girl is assigned to work with him, he wants nothing to do with her and is prepared to make her life miserable. But Flynn was not prepared for someone like Rose. She doesn’t fit the mold he expected and finds himself strongly attracted to her. As she continues to surprise and outwit him, they begin to forge a bond that is tested when they discover a secret that could change everything they know about Land of the Unaltered.
Land of the Unaltered is a Dystopian Romance and is the first installment of the The Confederation Chronicles.

My Rating: 4 Bookworms
Rose is not the typical capital girl. No alterations, no aspirations to remain perfect for the rest of her life. She is determined to escape the trapped lifestyle forced upon her from her father and mother. Hiding away with her aunt for the summer she is determined to be normal for the first time in her life.
As someone that isn’t all that big on dystopian – I might just change my viewpoint after this one. The story line was unique and fun. The characters were full and detailed. And the end set up the next book wonderfully.
Rose is one of the most wonderful characters I have read in a while. She is smart, beautiful and sometimes she even makes mistakes. Her chemistry with Flynn was adorable to read and their ‘tango’ around each other made me giggle on more than one occasion.
This one was like a slow rumbling read, that slowly built up into a big, enormous tsunami that hit me over the head.
