The Modified is pure genius in creativity and sci-fi phenomenon.
This story is full of adventure and creative Sci-Fi imagination. Not only is it sci-fi, but also Dystopian...two of my favorite genres. Just the modification process alone is pure adrenaline. How do authors come up with incredible storylines like this? I ask myself that daily.
Kenley doesn't see her father very often because he is a scientist, never being able to discuss his work. When the draft comes around, Kenley never imagined she would be picked, along with her best friend. All the recruits are taken to a secret facility where the modification process takes place, and then they begin their training. They were sworn to secrecy, not even families knowing what is happening to them. The recruits are the last hope for Earth in the intergalactic war with the Bringers.
Ok, that is not much of a short synopsis but I truly do not want to give out ANY spoilers to this incredible story. It was such a fun and exciting read, I am still baffled by the uniqueness of it. There is a little romance, conflict between fellow recruits, and some comical moments where I found myself laughing out loud. All qualities of a good book in my opinion. Oh, and the most important part, the twists and turns and CLIFFHANGER at the end. Yeah, doesn't that always get you? The cliffhangers? It definitely leaves you wanting more and having anxiety for the next release!!
