It’s been 100 years since the inter-galactic organization known as PULSE intervened to liberate the women of Earth. Now, free from the male population, the women have embarked on a journey to take their place in the all-female cosmic society.
In order to enlist in PULSE’s renowned military, earthlings Stella, Faye and the rest of their class must face the Trial. Only a few human women have ever conquered the perils of this three-day expedition across one of the most dangerous planets in the galaxy.
The girls must learn to work together in order to survive the threat of vicious alien beasts, scorching desert sands and icy mountain peaks, all while being hunted by an unstoppable and deadly foe.
My first thought upon finishing The Trial was ‘wow, now this book is incredible’ and my second was ‘why is this book not a movie?’. The Trial is a wildly entertaining, thrilling, addictive novel that is original and fascinating thanks to the unique premise of the book. Never before have I read a novel that enticed me so quickly, the reader is immediately thrust into the thick of the story so that they are gripped straight away, and I thank R.A. Crawford, the incredibly talented author of The Trial for writing his book this way.
The Trial follows an all-female cast as they enlist in the military for an inter-galactic organization known only as PULSE. PULSE one hundred years ago took control of Earth and merged it with its other system of planets, and although you may think Earth is established, it is not yet in the new order. Earth is the newbie, and its residents will be tested in the harshest and most brutal of ways. Only women survive now, and the women of Earth must embark on a terrifying, grueling task to join the PULSE’S elite Army reserved for only the toughest of females. Stella and Faye are two of the many women that are participating in ‘The Trial,’ the trial is a grueling three-day event in which the women will have to cross one of the most grueling and dangerous planets in the galaxy.
The women will have to team up and learn how to survive as they battle beasts, harsh climates, and a sinister foe. All of these components of the novel combined make The Trial a thrilling story that is not to be missed as this book is incredibly entertaining and needs to be read by everybody!
Never before have I read a dystopian novel that is so incredibly addictive. The plot of this book is out of this world – literally! It will entertain, grasp and shock you from page one as it takes you on a grueling journey across the galaxy. The premise of the novel is one that is insanely good, the originality of this story is phenomenal and I adore the all-female cast, and I admit, it is very fitting for our times!
R.A. Crawford is a phenomenal talent who clearly knows how to engross and entertain his readers. Crawford’s addictive narrative had me turning the pages like a mad woman with haste as I desperately wanted to know whether the protagonists would battle and survive their way to make it. The reader is left continuously guessing throughout this novel and that is one of the many reasons why The Trial is such a compelling story. Crawford most certainly is a genius author as he manages to weave humor, adventure, action, and thrilling themes flawlessly together which in turn makes The Trial a sensational novel.
As I am a huge lover of this incredible dystopian, science fiction novel, I have no choice but to award it a brilliant Five Stars as it indeed is an exceptional novel. If you are a reader who adores epic science fiction adventures that will take you on an unforgettable journey, then The Trial is not to be missed. Alternatively, if you are a reader who adores The Maze Runner series then you readers will adore this as it is essentially a female version but in space… how incredible is this!
