Genetic Engineering. Intrigue. Space Exploration. Perfect for fans of Enders Game, Brave New World, and Divergent.
Earth is dying, circling the drain on life support. The future of the human race depends on finding a new homeworld, but they’re running out of time. Parasitic insects are systematically killing the best scientific minds but no one knows why.
Mable Wilkinson is the last hope to figure it out, she just doesn’t know it yet. For years, her resourcefulness, intelligence, and penchant for problem-solving have put her at the top of a very short list of researchers, only she doesn’t want to be part of it.
Cast out at sixteen, Mable wrote off the problems of the world long ago. Now, her focus is on Hadley, her adopted little sister, and teaching her to survive in the cut-throat underground. Instead, both Mable and Hadley fall into the hands of the program’s recruiter, Silas Arrenstein, and he’s determined to have one of them. Mable can join up with the man and program who killed her brother, or she can leave Hadley to the same fate.

Okay, it took me two sittings to read this book, and for very good reason: my kindle died! One kid had my computer for school, another my phone to distract them so the others COULD do school. The we went out of town and I FORGOT my kindle. The whole whole while I’m sitting there distracted, dying to get back to my book so I could know what was going to happen with Mable’s team, if she’d ever get to see the Root again, and worrying about all the other characters.
This futuristic society was entrancing and engulfing, the author created this world so wonderfully and I got lost in it very easily. The characters were well written and stayed true to their personalities, and sometime I wanted to either hug or throat punch them lol.
There were a lot of point of views alternating in chapters, and sometimes it took me a few minutes to remember who the character was. This was a little distracting, but I got used to it after a while.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to people who like dystopian, futuristic, science fiction worlds with a lot of diversity. I will definitely be continuing this series.
A note I HAD to make while reading this still amuses me. “Stuck on the moon with a bunch of kids and a man who doesn’t talk as the whole of her human interaction? Damn right she’s gonna drink the wine no matter what it tastes like!”
