What a knock your socks off adventure. It literally never stops in the action, suspense, twists and turns. This book follows Trio, a Clone who awakens in an unfamiliar world left in ruins after `The Sick' has left the land in shambles and all the adults dead in its wake. Only kids survive it. Some survive as gruesome mutations from The Sick. Trio finds she has memories of the world in its glory, not in disrepair as she finds it. She gets a brief holographic image of someone who looks like her mother, begging her to complete a mission she has no memory of. Knowing the world is depending on her, she journeys across a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles, meeting other kids, some friendly like Beckett and Poppy, some not so friendly. Along with a nameless loyal canine, she fights her way across the city to discover where she needs to be. Betrayal, lies and pain surround her. Over and over she loses people she barely gets to know. Will she make it to the end of her journey intact?
It was a wild ride. Trio is such a tough girl. She can beat Crawlers, Brights, Howlers (some of many mutations left by The Sick) and treacherous kids to a pulp! I like how good natured she is, it's ingrained in her to take care of others. Doing everything she can to keep those she loves alive, she discovers secrets about herself that others want desperately. I loved the action scenes, there are many. The post-apocalyptic world is painted out to the reader with painstaking detail. It is so real, and so incredibly sad.
I am looking forward to reading the next two books in this series. My only qualm was that it was a bit repetitive and predictable, though I can see how necessary it was to pummel any groups of friendly kids Trio meets with the Crawlers and Trio's nemesis Cade always one tiny step behind her.
A fabulous intro to what looks like a fast paced, intriguing series.

i liked the sample that I got. I unfortunately couldn't buy it, because I was out of money on my card... but, oh, well, that's life. Anyway, from what I read, the story seemed good. There were a few grammatical errors, but no one gives a crap about it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
