Partials – By Dan Wells

Image

From Goodreads

The human race is all but extinct after a war with Partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by RM, a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island while the Partials have mysteriously retreated. The threat of the Partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to RM in more than a decade. Our time is running out.

Kira, a sixteen-year-old medic-in-training, is on the front lines of this battle, seeing RM ravage the community while mandatory pregnancy laws have pushed what’s left of humanity to the brink of civil war, and she’s not content to stand by and watch. But as she makes a desperate decision to save the last of her race, she will find that the survival of humans and Partials alike rests in her attempts to uncover the connections between them—connections that humanity has forgotten, or perhaps never even knew were there.

Dan Wells, acclaimed author of I Am Not a Serial Killer, takes readers on a pulsepounding journey into a world where the very concept of what it means to be human is in question—one where our humanity is both our greatest liability and our only hope for survival.

Dust Lands | Rebel Heart | Moira Young

Rebel Heart made me sad and angry most of the time, i still can’t get over what Saba did, like my brain can’t wrap around it like it’s jammed. At one point i had to shut the book just to breath. This book will leave you Hopeless and shocked. It’s a page turner all right like i was up all night reading and could not stop until i finished it, it was that good.

The book starts off with Jack but you don’t hear from him for a while until towards the end of the book, you hear about him doing stuff that makes you wonder ” What the hell Jack ” but then you know it can’t, be cause it’s jack there has to be a reason for everything..right? It’s jack you just know that in your gut.

And then there is Saba…oh sometimes i just want to smack her and throw the book out the window for what she did. you can tell there something up with her in the beginning. she does stuff that you just can’t believe and then your heart goes out for her but then she does stuff that pisses you off.

Tommo oh Tommo i have no words for him really just my sadness like i just want to rip my heart out and give it to him cause he has been threw so much.

But over all the book is a great read even tho it makes your heart break. If you read Blood red road and haven’t read Rebel Heart yet…what the hell are you waiting for? Read it! it’s worth the heart breaking. So much more goes on in the book that i can’t explain, tho i wish i could. Just read it..

Favorite Quotes

“All the time I’ve knowed you, Jack, you kept the door to that heart of yers locked up tight an the key hid away. Looks like she found it.
He says nothing. Molly waits. Then:
Keys ain’t her style, he says. She kicked the door down.”

“Saba! I’m afeared! cries Emmi. 
If you are, you ain’t no sister of mine! I shout. Come at me agin!
I ain’t afeared of nuthin! She yells. 
That’s more like it.”

“I think of what we might say. Him to me. Me to him. I ain’t no soft girl. I don’t know no soft words. Be with me, Jack. That’s what I’ll say. Burn with me. Shine with me.”

“How could she resist them eyes?
She tries, says Jack. Man, did she try.”

“Pa? You never said. What’m I gonna be? Good or bad? 
He kisses the top of my head. Whispers in my ear, so’s only him and me can hear. You, my darlin daughter, are gonna be somethin else entirely.”

Dust Lands | Blood Red Road | By Moira Young

Blood red road can be a little hard to understand at first because of the writing, The author really was trying to get you to really understand Saba on how she sounds.Once i got best that i loved it and started to understand everything and even While i was reading the book inside my head i sounded like her and i loved that. Another reasons why i love this book is because of Saba’s Sass was so funny. I love sass in a book brings laughter in a sad book. And she is a bad ass..(Spoiler)She is the Angel of death and all. and oh my love for Jack is really strong. I love how he tried so hard to get Saba to understand that he liked her and watching there struggle was sad but lovely at the same-time. Saba is not used to the “Real” World all her life up to a certain point never even left home. She never got to meet people and never even been around boys her age step for her brother. so when jack came around she was very Sassy and “Bitchy”( can i use that word? ) But Jack still tried so you gotta give him cred.

The Plot of the story is amazing. It’s noting like The hunger games or Divergent or any other dystopian book and it really annoys me when people compare them together. THG is awesome don’t get me wrong ( Huge fan right here ) I know some people don’t like it but from the people judging book because someone doesn’t like it, just stop you need to just read this book first and judge from them you might end up liking it. I know i did.
