    1. Book received from Netgalley for an honest reviewSet in a future dystopian world, Andi is a member of the Trans Liberty Light Brigade, a ragtag group of intersex “Transgressors” fighting for their right to remain intersex and not be forced by the government into surgical gender assignment. Elenbar, the Brigade’s leader, knows that Society is closing in on them and needs to get a message out to beyond the United Free States and chooses Andi to go with her. Andi is a junkie but even in her a [...]

    2. **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 imagine in our current climate, but the immersion goes far beyond your usual fare. This book is not an easy read- it took me a while to acclimate to the thick dialect of Andi, the narrator of this tale. It r [...]

    3. First off, let me say that NineStar Press is becoming my go-to for LGBTQ+ science fiction. Most of my favorite science fiction stories of the year have been published by this press, and Trans Liberty Riot Brigade is another favorite. Their page is definitely worth a looksie if you haven’t already.Trans Liberty Riot Brigade is as edgy as the title suggests. Taking place in a dystopian future, where intersex people are being persecuted by the government, and the United Free States is at war with [...]

    4. 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 important. Relax into the dialect and get lost in the best possible way.

    5. “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 intelligently written, Trans Liberty Riot Brigade shifts away from traditional gender binarism in narration to something far more complex and beautiful—a human being. I admit, at [...]

    6. 3 StarsReview:*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 lots of mentions of prostitution and rape (though no explicit scenes—well, except one scene in which Andi and some others were touched without consent). There were graphic descriptions of various sorts [...]

    7. 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 engage with the character. I had to stop and figure out what some of the words meant. They were familiar enough, that between context, and remembering how my friends from high school used to talk, I [...]

    8. Background: Washington based L.M. Pierce is a speculative fiction author and self-confessed nerd, living happily with her husband and four fur-babies. Trans Liberty Riot Brigade was released on July 17 2017, and is the first book in the Brigade series.The story is set in a world where people born intersex are labelled as ‘transgressors’ and are legally mandated to be assigned a gender. One such transgressor, Andi, is part of the titular Brigade, an underground group standing against the Gove [...]

    9. Copy provided by Ninestar Press through Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewDNF'd @5%Review CN: homophobic slurs, quotes from the book concerning transphobic comments and genitalia Let me just start off by saying that I took a risk in picking up this book but I was really curious to see if the author could carry off writing about such a sensitive issue, especially in speculative fiction. I don't usually pick up books with trans or intersex characters anymore from authors I'm not certain ar [...]

    10. "I ain't a man neither. I mean, what are we really?""Wellwhat 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 wanting more. But, given that this novel is the first in a series and the author is busily working to get Book II into our hands, it makes sense some elements need to be withheld for future exploration.Our [...]

    11. 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 found myself wanting the language to change, to become more streamline and flexible, but I also constantly found myself coming back to the book, eager to keep reading. As much as I enjoyed the story, the [...]

    12. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.The dystopian novel is not a new concept. But few dystopian books have trans and intersex characters at the heart of their novels. Enter Trans Liberty Riot Brigade, the first book in what will be a promising series. Andi is a Transgressor, an intersex person who doesn’t want surgery or drugs to define her as a person. Unfortunately, in this society, the media has scared people into believing everyone should either b [...]

    13. This was brilliantly written, with flavor and style in an imaginative world that the author immersed you in with slang and grit.I'll be the first to admit that this isn't generally the sort of book I run to read, but I enjoyed it. I struggled with the heavy slang, and some characters I never did understand, but as much as that was a problem for me, it may not be for others and I admire the authors dedication in writing like this through the entire novel.If dystopian worlds with small glimmers of [...]

    14. There is something so cinematic in the way that TLRB is written. The visuals are strong and the scenes are always set perfectly. The only thing that caught me off guard was the dialect. You have to be willing to just accept it as it comes in the way M.T. Anderson's Feed does the same. If you don't, you may find yourself struggling.

    15. ARC provided in exchange for an honest review. I'm not generally a dystopian reader, so keep that in mind.General-Trans Liberty Riot Brigade tells the story of Andi, an intersex nonbinary teenager, struggling to exist and be safe within a dystopian society hell bent on making sure all of its residents are either 'male' or 'female'. The year isuncertain. Somewhere not too far off our own timeline. The place is the USA, except now under a much more sinister name. Society is deeply stratified and i [...]

    16. Andi's world is very different from our own, living day to day on the run, part of a resistance group and trying to keep her head on straight and not lose herself to the local popular drug. To prove herself she's pulled into a mission to get over the wall blocking off her world from the rest and she has no idea what she's really getting into. As different and dystopian as this world seems, somewhere in the process of the book it eventually begins to feel very real and very familiar, especially w [...]

    17. I really liked this book, but it was hard for me to get into. Once I got past the first few chapters it really started to flow. Pierce's writing style is captivating and not like any author I've read before. She jumped into the story and blends in back story as she goes. The only thing I didn't like, and I didn't like it a lot, is the way the characters "speak". I understand she was trying to portray the Transgressors as uneducated, but I wasn't a fan. Now this isn't saying I didn't like how the [...]

    18. 2017 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Trans Liberty Riot Brigade L.M. Pierce1) I loved the voice of our protagonist and looking at the world through her eyes. The stark and colorful language characterized the entire piece beautifully. 2) Brutal and gritty, the story is very well written. It grabs you from the start and holds you until the end.

    19. Before reading my review, I'd just like to note that I'm not much of a reader of Dystopian books but upon reading the blurb I found this novel peaked my interests, which was the reason I requested and got approved to read it.Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy the book as much as I hoped to, although, I might pick it up myself one day and try to reread it as to see if the second time would help change my mind but for now here are my thoughts and review of the book. For most of the time, I found this b [...]

    20. I received a free edition of this book through Story Cartel in exchange for my review, which is very, very late. This hasn't affected my review or rating in any way. In fact, this book is so awesome that I wish I'd paid for it.I was incredibly excited about this book. Intersex characters in a dystopian future with the most beautiful cover I've ever seen? Oh, I was *in*.Despite my lofty expectations, this book did not disappoint. At all.Let me start at the beginning. So Andi, the protagonist of t [...]

    21. What a ride! I almost put it down because I don't like reading heavy dialect, but the dialect was readable, and I got used to it. It also took me a while to start caring about the characters. But I'm glad I stuck with it. For a thriller full of perilous situations in a sad dystopian world, this book was funny in clever ways. I kept thinking at some point she'd run out, but fresh wacky descriptions just kept coming like clowns out of a VW bug at a circus. What the heck is a hopscotch newt? I part [...]

    22. A Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words Review2.5 starsI’ve recently developed an interest for Science Fiction with non-binary protagonists, so when I saw the blurb for “Trans Liberty Riot Brigade” I just had to read the book. Sadly, it didn’t quite live up to my expectations.The biggest problem for me was the language. This book is written in dialect all the way through and the author apparently came up with a bunch of new slang words too. At times, it felt like there was a real language b [...]

    23. I really wanted to like this, but I think I am entirely the wrong reader for it. I will not belabor the point, but there were several issues for me.One, the entire book is written in a made-up language/dialect that I struggled with. It is hard to immerse yourself in a story when you are struggling to figure out what somebody just said. I thought it would get easier, but there were some characters I simply found incomprehensible. All the credit in the world to L.M. Pierce for the imagination and [...]
