Overview

The Unadjusteds Trilogy - Book 2

GENETIC MODIFICATION HAS BEEN OUTLAWED.

THE REMAINING ALTEREDS WANT REVENGE.

When Silver's mother is abducted by a rogue scientist who releases a deadly new virus on the populace, she and her now unadjusted friends are faced with an impossible choice.

They can hide from the virus for as long as possible, or they can regain their abilities and take the battle to the mountains. But Silver doesn't count on a new, rogue power growing within her. She can't control it and soon all her friends are in danger. And there is something evil hiding in the snowy Sierras.

Can Silver learn to control her new, deadly power in time to rescue her mother as well as defeat the one who seeks to destroy them all?

Perfect for fans of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, Divergent by Veronica Roth, Maze Runner by James Dashner, Delirium by Lauren Oliver, and Flawed by Cecelia Ahern.

"A science fiction dystopian at its best, looking at the dangers of genetics and genetic modification. Not only is it a pacy young adult thriller, but looks at issues in mental health, such as self-esteem and anxiety, and the rigid values and virtues we sometimes hold people to, that need to change."

Praise for The Unadjusteds Trilogy

"A pacy dystopia that romps along - speculative fiction at its most moreish! I love books exploring questions like this...what does playing god mean? And what's it like when you're the odd one out in the world? Perfect for 12+. Loved the mental health angle too, sensitively handled." - Louie Stowell (Author).

"I loved this book. Great characters and an absolutely brilliant concept! This will appeal to anyone who enjoyed The Hunger Games / Twilight.

The writing was fantastic and the pace was perfect throughout - I was gripped from the first page. The characters were well drawn and I cannot wait to see what happens to them next! I could easily see this being picked up for a film option." - Catherine Emmett (Author)

"I blinkin' loved it!" - Amazon Reader.

"Though I was a little heartbroken at the end, I just wanted more. Please tell me there's a sequel and I can return to the technicoloured and dangerous world of The Unadjusteds." - Noelle Kelly (Book Reviewer)

"The characters are excellent and imaginative!" - GoodReads reviewer

"It gave me moments of shock and out-loud gasping." - Amazon reviewer

"The Unadjusteds was a well-written, intense and emotional story that kept my attention from start to finish." - Book blogger

"I devoured this book!" - Amazon reader.
