A brilliant surgeon known for his invention of Modi’s—the only cure for the deadly disease, vaincre—has gone rogue with his experiments, and the Monarchy is desperate to shut him down. That's where Aeva Storm comes in, a champion athlete with an ego to match. Aeva is the surgeon's secret weapon against the Monarchy. And they'll never know what hit them. After reconstructing her body to become a Modi unlike any he's ever created, Aeva is forced into a fight against all odds. She'll have to break loyalties, hurt family, and turn her back on newly awakened love. Thousands of lives hang in the balance in a battle that will set forth a new era.
Join Aeva on her quest to see whether she's got what it takes to go up against the most powerful humans ever created.
I LOVED this story, it started slow for me and it took me awhile to get into it, but after she met Karth I was hooked, I mean really hooked. I wanted to know more about Aeva, what was going on in Agria, and who the F the Monarchy was. I mean I really hated the Monarchy.
The longer I read, the more I got hooked, and between two baths, and staying up to 1am I finished the book in 2 days, yes I tend to take a bath every day, don’t hate me. Anywhos, you learn to love those who you hated, hate those who you kinda liked, really like some people, kinda despise other people, and every other emotion you can feel with a book. Because honestly Anna is great at pulling your emotions, I mean when Aeva is walking though Agria you want to cry with her. When she is throwing punches you want to be there next to her helping her. Only one time did I want to slap her and be like Aeva, this man is HOT and he WANTS you, go go my bird. But sadly no, she is stubborn and hardheaded which due to the FILA game she plays, she kinda has to be.
As the series eludes to, this is the first book in hopefully at least one if not two more books. There is a lot left to explore and by the lord and lady please SAVE HER. Yes I can not tell you who, because that is part of the story, but Anna, if you can hear me, you better save her in the next book.
This book has darker elements, human modification both consensual and not, mass homicide, well technically I think it is genocide due to the way Anna has this world, disease, famine, you know all the gritty things. But the way that she writes it does not lead to a depressing book, it leads to character development, strength, resilience, and perseverance when everything has been taken from you, even those things that should never be, personal identity, character, and emotions.
This is a longer book and while I actually didn’t skim, I never felt that it drug on really. Every page seemed to matter, even when it was only conversation, because it showed you the true will that the characters had, both good and bad.
Other than that, it is a really good book and I look forward to reading future ones in this series and from Anna.
Good night my fanged followers
