Read Trans Liberty Riot Brigade (Brigade, #1) Online Free - How do you fight for who you are, when the government controls what you are?
Andi knows being born an intersex "Transgressor" and then choosing to stay that way, can have lethal consequences. After all, surgical assignment is mandated by law. But she ain’t going to spend her life hiding from the Society, hooked on Flow, and wanking tourists just to make a few bucks. She's a member of the Trans Liberty Riot Brigade, an underground faction of Transgressors resisting the government’s war on their illegal genitalia.
But it’s not enough to tag their messages on shithouse walls and sniff down the next high. The government has found their headquarters, decimated their ranks, and they’re crushing the resistance. Though Andi might be nothing but a junktard, she embarks on a desperate dash to stay alive and send a call for help before they’re all killed—or worse, surgically assigned.
Andi, together with Brigade leader Elenbar, must get beyond the communications block preventing all radio transmission, which means crossing the seaboard Wall barricading the United Free States borders. It’s designed to keep enemies out and the citizens in, but amid increasing earthquakes and deadly pursuit, Andi will discover there’s a far more dangerous secret hidden deep within the Wall itself.

**I received an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review**
I was completely entranced by the cover, which is breathtakingly gorgeous. What waits behind the cover is also art: dark, disturbing and beautiful all at once.
L.M. Pierce has created a dystopian future that's not terribly hard to ima...

Now more than ever, books like Brigade are vital—both as gritty, brutal warnings of a dystopic society not too far out of reach, and as beautiful, fierce affirmations of self-identity and hope.
Put in a less obnoxious way, this book is not an easy read but it will make you feel things I think are...

“I’m a—well, I’m just me. All my bits and self equaling Andi. Just Andi.”
I went into this well-crafted tale understanding the words “trans,” “liberty,” “riot,” and “brigade” independent from each other. I had assumptions of what they meant when strung together.
I was wrong.
Dark, haunting, and int...

*I received an ecopy of this book from the author. This has not influenced my review.*
The book was very gritty, grungy, and dirty (literally dirty, like with dirt and sweat and other bodily fluids). The main character lived in the slums. The book was filled with drug addiction and l...

The title and cover of “Trans Liberty Riot Brigade” told me the book was going to be something special. The teaser on the back was further evidence supporting that theory. The novel did not disappoint. Once I started reading, I had to finish in one sitting.
At first, the slang made it hard for to...

"I ain't a man neither. I mean, what are we really?"
"Well...what do ya feel?"
"I'm me. I'm just-Andi. Whatever that means."
Unique, bold and intriguing. Overall, a fantastic book. The social and political themes are woven into the story quite well, though there were some parts where I found myself...

Trans Liberty Riot Brigade is an engaging, thrilling read that took me by surprise.
The book is predominantly dystopian, but easily immersive. However, I will state up-front that the dialect and construction of the book is difficult. If you enjoy a challenging read, this is for you. I constantly f...
