The author did a magnificent job creating a futuristic America split in two countries. Democravia is the country where young people have to go through a procedure called "The Augment". With that procedure, all your emotions (and free will) are controlled and guided, all in benefit of a greater cause. A young girl (Corrag) rebels against having to do the procedure and is sent by her parents to leave in a community outside their controlled region, in the Republican Homeland, with her uncle and aunt. And soon a whole new situation takes place and status quo is challenged.
This is a very action intense book, full of twists and excitement, that will keep you entertained for hours.
Technically the book is the second in the series called "The Jonah Trilogy", the first being "Savior", but you can read it as a complete stand alone book, without losing any connectivity, as this story only mentions a couple of times events that are related to the first story. The main link is that our main character in this book is the granddaughter of Al Lyon, the main character of Savior.
If you have money to buy and time to read, Savior is also an excellent and entertaining reading.The author is a natural storyteller and you will enjoy every turn of page from this wonderful novel.
I received a copy of this book from the author but I was not requested to provide a positive review. Opinion expressed here is my own. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0981516653, Paperback)

The Victor's Heritage is Book Two of 'The Jonah Trilogy' and rests upon the spunky personality of teen Corrag, who is on track to receive the Augment brain implant that will connect her to the Cloud and thus to the knowledge base of the world.
 
But this goal about to be derailed, thanks to her association with a boy who is a veteran of war - and who offers quite a different perspective of their world than the one she's been raised with.
 
In 2045, the U.S. is divided into two very different countries. Within these nations lie the seeds of two competing political and social ideologies (much as is happening today). And when one special person 'crosses the border' between worlds and faces isolation, abandonment, and trials, this makes for a powerful read, indeed.
 
The Victor's Heritage, being part of a trilogy, enhances the setting provided in Book One, Savior; but while readers ideally should read the first, such is not a requirement to arrive late on the scene with its sequel. Through the vision and perceptions of Corrag, this world springs immediately to life with all its potentials for love, change, and devastation.
 
The Victor's Heritage is especially recommended for mature teens to young adults - particularly for those inclined to enjoy dystopian stories of the future, who will appreciate a vivid turn of events as Corrag's initial acceptance of her future turns into questions with terrible answers. The connections between family and friends are especially well drawn and lend an immediacy and excitement to the plot, which is powered by and packed with emotional revelations and swift action.
