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.
I heard people talk about this book on the internet for a while now, an knew i had to get my hands on it soon, and i finally have and OMG! It was amazing. I 100% loved this book. There is a race of people that was made for the war called the Partials, they looked just like humans but they are not humans.
There is a virus that killed Mostly everyone on the earth but a few 1000 that lives on long island.
The Human race is dyeing because the virus is killing there babies and without the babies Poof no more humans.
SO Kira whose seventeen starts to research on finding the cure, and so much happens and she has to learn who to trust the humans or the Partials and she finds out a deep secret that she can’t tell no one.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves science fiction and Dystopian books.
it is amazing and Dan wells writing really gets your heart pumping. it took me about 2-3 days to finish this book, just because i didn’t want it to end. The Ending will shock you.
I can’t wait to read the 2nd book and hope it as good as the 1st.
There isn’t much lovely Romance bla bla in this book which is awesome. ( Tho i do like a books with romance and a love story but not like all the time )
But when you read this you know there is this connection with this person i am not gonna mention cause i don’t want to spoil the book. That could maybe but maybe not be a love story.
I love how Kira is really brave and does what she believe in and does not stop for anyone, when she wants answers she gets them and that’s one of the big reason why i love that Character.
