There were a number of secondary characters that added nicely to the drama and I would love to learn more about them in the future series.
The action is fast paced and about 1/2 way through the story gets really cooking.
I have ordered the second one!
The graphic was rather good. The artist did a nice job portraying all characters and the environment. Colors are lively, they catch your eye. If only the plot was better and the story would read really nicely. As it is now I could only enjoy looking at it. It's one of the stories that "look good on the shelf" but when you start reading it it's kind of disappointing.
I think I was supposed to care about the whole gene manipulations, but this book didn't make me care. It showed that it happened and that's it. I didn't even care enough about the main character. He simply was there, we followed him, that's it.
To sum it up I wouldn't recommend it. The best thing here was the graphic and ven though I liked it I know it's not a masterpiece.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

In a near future, bioengineering has promise as well as danger. A pandemic seems to have started in Africa and Jadas is trying to figure out what is happening and realizing that it might be tied to his family. Before he can get too far in his investigation, he finds something out about himself that has long term implications. He finds himself captured by another country and given a choice that may change his life.
It's a graphic novel with some problems. The story starts with some DNA testing on primates, which is there to explain a few things, but doesn't do a good job because it feels like it's supposed to be important. It does tie in, but not the way it lead me to think. I guess it's a feint, or it could show up later. I also wasn't crazy about the art. It's not terrible, but wasn't overly striking to me. I read a lot of graphic novels. This one falls right in the middle. I've read better and worse.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, IDW Publishing, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
