About the Book
I have known about this series for a few years now, back when this book was a bunch of shorter books. And it looked really good, but I just kept putting it off. I was more worried I was expecting too much from it and didn't want to be disappointed. I know, that sounds incredibly dumb of me. But I'm known to do stuff like that from time to time.
Anyway, I finally decided it was time to read it.
Although I liked the narrator, there was one thing that bothered me. It is split POV between 3 people, two of which are male. It just was weird that a dominantly male storyteller was read by a female. She wasn't bad or anything, just not what I'd have preferred.
This story is pretty fast pace, with the government trying to capture and basically dismantle all the people who need their upgrades to survive. I like how each of the three main characters contribute to the story in their unique ways. I usually have a difficult time differing between POVs of the same gender while listening to an audiobook, but both Dax and Gage are so vastly different. I really appreciated that.
Most important of all, Blythe is a super fraking awesome heroine.
The ending though. Holy gawd blasted monkey balls! I really did not see that coming. I'm glad the audiobook for the 2nd book released last month, because I'm going to need to read that ASAP.
