Genius: The Con by Leopoldo Gout {Book Review}

If you don't like to start a series until it is completed, The Genius series by Leopoldo Gout is ready for your reading! (Oh, Patrick Rothfuss.) The third book in the series, Genius: The Revolution, was just released on August 7, 2018.

In the Genius series, we follow three geniuses through various exploits. At first, the stakes seem small, but the risk to themselves and others continues to build through both books. The story starts with The Game, which is a competition organized by a mysterious tech giant to pit the geniuses of the world against each other.

While I found the series intriguing, I was never really pulled in. I'm not sure it makes any sense, but this felt like it was trying a bit too hard to by a YA or middle grade novel, instead of just being a great story.
