Series: Corded Saga #1
Publication Date: January 12, 2017
Genres: Dystopian, Romance


In a world where women are commodities, the only thing more rare than finding true love is a happy ending.

Kayla is in hiding—her only crime being born a girl in a society of 99 percent men. When her sister and niece are kidnapped, she is willing to do anything to save them. Kayla ventures into the dangerous streets of the city, a place where a woman can be claimed by anyone unless she has been marked by a club.

Desperate, she turns to Mason, a powerful club leader whose help comes at a cost—her freedom.

My Review

​Corded by Alyssa Rose Ivy is a new dystopian novel and a first by this author into this sub-genre of novels.

Kayla has lived in the Rurals her entire life. She has had to stay hidden and is always on alert to ensure her safety. A series of unfortunate events leads her to Mason, the one man who may be able to give her all of the things she most desires.

“Something died in me that day. I knew I’d never view the world the same way again.”

I love dystopian novels. I found my way back to reading through them, so they hold a unique and special place in my heart. Having the privilege of reading a dystopian novel from one of my favorite authors was a moment of pure elation.

The beginning of Mason and Kayla’s relationship was interesting, Mason almost being in uncharacteristic insta-love and Kayla finding herself in a fast enemies-to-lovers role. Regardless of how they initially perceived one another or why they had that perception, the undercurrent in their chemistry was magnetic, drawing them to each other, but also making me unwaveringly connected to them.

Of course, the dystopian theme of the story was a unique gem that fueled the storyline, pushing it beyond the limits of a typical romance novel and into the realm of what-ifs and hows for the human race. Halfway through was the surprise of a lifetime and I wanted to jump up and tackle hug the author.

“I would never be finished with her because I knew behind those haunted eyes there was something worth knowing, something worth keeping.”

Corded was a thrilling and passion-inducing dystopian novel that set my reader meter on a high. Can’t wait for the next book in this series.
