With the incredible series known as "The Hunger Games" YA distopia kinda exploded for a while, but now has lost it's thunder, or so I have heard. After The Hunger Games, there where tons of YA dystopian novels produced to capitalize on the leader's success. However, now I fear that it's, well, just too overdone. However, the dystopian series I have planned out is unique/different in one big way; it's not focused on the rebels. On the contrary, the series is actually focused on the perspective we rarely get to see from, and one that is never sympathetic: the leader of the dystopia. The series, as it stands now, is split into two stories. One chronicling his rise to power and the creation of the aforementioned dystopian setting and then one that chronicles his reign and battles against a rebel faction and the very being that gave him the means to build his world in the first place. If your wondering, yes, the main character starts out as a teen(in the first story) and later gains a twisted form of eternal youth for more reasons then one which allows him the time needed to build his world without worrying about aging to death. That said, I still fear that dystopian may be overdone. Does a "fresh perspective" help to make it less cliche' and thus more viable or is dystopian just too overused that no fresh perspective can save it?
