    1. This review can also be found on my blog here.---I received a free copy of this book courtesy of the author in exchange for an honest review."Perhaps it takes knowing you’re going to die to really start to live.”The World-Building/WritingI definitely find the world The Collector is set in very convincing. With all the penal codes, the properly-explained jobs, and how the reader is introduced to the life of the Collectors, I felt like I was living in the world myself.The writing itself is ver [...]


    2. *I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.*TW: Domestic violence, abuseThis was a wonderful story filled with love, sacrifice, and action. The characters are well fleshed out and the world building was thorough. It was refreshing to read a story in which you see the full side of the “bad guys” rather than only the “resistance”, which was something that made this book stand out for me. If you’re looking for a science-fiction, dystopian novel with a unique pr [...]


    3. This book was very well written. At times, it seems the author describes the story in short, clipped sentences, which actually goes well with the story line in this book, which seems to be somewhat post-apocalyptic and hopeless.The story follows a man named Nick Vaughn who happens to be a collector, which is a person who's job it is to collect people who have volunteered their lives to the Agency so their family can receive more water rations (essentially their lifetime's worth of water rations) [...]


    4. 10 Points Review of David Luna’s – The Collector1.5/5 stars. Unique! Thrilling!2.Well-written action scenes.3.Excellent world-building – a bit of Orwell combined with a modern apocalypse. 4.I was thrown into a setting of such devastating thirst that I now have to go watch Costner’s Waterworld.5.Favorite Quotes: “And then the dam broke,” “SPARE LIVES BY SELLING YOURS,” “The Agency thanks you for your sacrifice.”6.Wonderful details kept me in the moment: water treated like a fi [...]


    5. I enjoyed this book.The author creates a world of scarce water resources.This societies inhabitants include those who are willing to sacrifice their lives to sustain their loved ones.The main character Nicks job is to collect these individuals for the government.It's intersting to see His struggle to remain safe,yet fulfill a desire for more.i really liked the addition of the appendage with all of the penal codes.The best part of the book were the quotes by Quado at the beginning of the chapters [...]


    6. I really enjoyed it. The tale is a pure dystopia. The world and the characters are very believable and natural. It strongly reminded me of 451 Fahrenheit which is really good because I just love that book. It's got every element of a dystopian reality I look for in this kind of books. I look forward to reading the next part.David Luna, thank you for your book, it's a great treat.:)


    7. What a great book! Once you start reading, you won't be able to set it down. The details are so vivid and easy to visualize that you are pulled into the story. I look forward to reading more from this author.


    8. I received this book through giveaways for an honest review.The Collector was well-written and had an original concept but it wasn't for me. I had a hard time getting in to it and was disturbed in quite a few places. I think the book showed an interesting look at people's behavior in crisis and desperation.I did like the very end.
