Synopsis: It’s 2096, sixty years after ninety percent died from a man-made Bioplague. Humanity has splintered into four unequal subspecies: immortals, cyborgs, enhancers, and subservient half-human, half-animal hybrids.
The world is anything but equal. Hybrids everywhere are suffering, but sixteen-year-old Raek Mekorian, a wolfish with a nose for trouble, doesn’t see an alternative. Except the Resistance, who don’t stand a chance against the world government. His mom always said, “Keep your head down.”
And he does, until his sister is murdered by a pair of cyborgs. Overnight, his simple life is shattered, fracturing the rigid governmental caste as he is thrust into the dangerous world of superhuman hit squads, Resistance uprisings, and secrets better left unsaid.
With only built-in blasters and the advice of a mysterious professor, Raek must navigate crushing betrayal, self-doubt, and a limitless enemy whose evil knows no bounds.
Can Raek unify his people and free them from tyranny? The fate of mankind may rest in his hands.
Review: Overall, this was a good book. The writing was well done and the world was intriguing. I really liked how the world was built, I thought that was the strongest part of this book and if you’re a sci-fi nerd like me then you’ll really love this more than likely.
However, I did feel like the characters were hit or miss. Some were wonderful and marvelously built, others weren’t. The book was also a bit trope-y, but it was good for the most part. I think a map would have been great for this and I think that the writing got a bit chaotic when the action scenes happened as well.
Verdict: It was a good sci-fi for the most part!
