This review applies to the entire series. The action sequences are very well written and interesting, but certain things about the writing became very annoying and hard to tolerate after 4-5 books, and they detracted from the entire experience. Namely, the excessive amount of inner dialogue. This series easily could have fit into 3 or 4 action-packed books if not for the excessive explanations of how people feel and what they think. THE most annoying thing about the books (particularly the last few) is how often Violet or Vego seemingly re-discover or express how much they love each other. Some reviews have compared aspects of this story to a cheesy romance novel, and that is fair. It is cheesy romance intermixed with good action sequences. Also annoying was the author's overuse of terms such as chaste kiss and tisk. That is just bad writing. I stayed with these books to the end because I wanted to see how they turned out, but by the end I was simply ready for it to be over and did not really care what happened to Violet or Vego. This story is not the Hunger Games, and Violet is no Katniss.

The narrators of this book once again did fantastic job and I was so glad they continued to read this book. The ending book was well thought out and very enjoyable to listen to. All around great series.

I previously listened to The Girl Who Dared to Think series by the same author, although I did enjoy that series, there were aspects I found annoying. In the Girl Who Dared to Think every book in the series had repetitive recaps of aspects of the books that had previously been read as if we had dementia, the individual books also felt more like chapters rather than books on there own making the $15 a pop feel all the more expensive. Thankfully none of this occurs in The Gender Game books, it was captivating from the very beginning till the very end without unnecessary recaps to act as filler. I thoroughly enjoyed this series and I highly recommended it to others.
Compared to the other books from the same writer and narrater this one was very bad quality and had a lot of background noise of people talking and even singing at one point?? Very distracting. Not impressed.
