Book Review: The System (The Bubo Series Book #1) by Jess Peters




2045. The world was overpopulated. When the black death happened, millions died. This time it’s mutated and come back worse. The system seeks to save humanity. They pick the brightest minds to work in medical and science to help research a cure or vaccination. 

Daniel wants to contribute to society and help save humanity. To do so, he must pass the system. A series of tough gruelling tests to give those who are seventeen a work quadrant. 

Medical and science is where you want to be. To research and create a cure. Rations and living conditions are better there. Getting there is another matter. On his quest in helping humanity’s survival, will he discover that all is not as it seems?

The system seeks to save. Is this the truth or are they hiding something and do they really want to save humanity?




The System was a fun book to read. I enjoyed reading about the dystopian feel in the book and reading about the various different factions in the story line. Society as they knew it has fallen apart. Depending on where you scored in the various tests in the system would determine which faction you were placed in. Not everyone made it through the final series of tests and some even failed out of the tests quite miserably. The tests were hard, gruelling, and both mentally and physically exhausting. Most wanted to get into the top faction where the best rations and living conditions were.

Daniel was a fun character to read about. He was determined and quite a bright young man, and he had a lot of heart and cared about others. He would do anything for his friends and family, and those he cared about. He wanted to pass the test with amazing scores and strived to make it into the top faction of medical and science. Along the way he grew weary of the system’s true intentions and wanted to see if everything they were all lead to believe was truth or if the system was lying to them all and had other plans.

It was fun to read the story from Daniel’s point of view and see things through the perspective and eyes of a young teenager. It was a refreshing story and I enjoyed the book. I look forward to the next book in the series.
