Incubation book 1 in the Incubation Trilogy by Laura DiSilverio is a futuristic dystopian fantasy book that is believable and hard to put down. It keeps you in suspense and on the edge of your seat as you run with Jax, Wyck and Halla to escape with them from the Kube. It is a fast moving and suspenseful read and whether you are a young adult or an adult you will enjoy this read.
The world is not the same since the great epidemic. Children are taken from their famly and made to live in a Kube and taught what the Pragmatists, who are the powers to be, want them to learn to go into careers they chose for them. They have no choices but what is chosen for them. This is where the story gets interesting because Jax doesn't know who her parents are and she desperately wants to. Wyck doesn't want to be made to be in the military and Halla is pregnant with her boyfriends baby and doesn't want her child taken from her since they didn't have permission to have a child. This is what leads up to the three of them running from the Kube. Will Jax, Wyck and Halla survive? Will they achieve what they set out to achieve? What kind of trouble is waiting for them? These and other questions is what this book will explore and take you on their journey to survive and get away.
This is a fast paced, futuristic and believable book about a dystopian society. It keeps you guessing and rooting for Jax, Wyck and Halla. It is a nail bitter at times and emotional at other times. It is a very good read for adults and young adults. If you like sci-fi futuristic books you will want to read this book and series. I highly recommend it. If you were a big fan of Hunger Games then I think you will be a fan of this one too. I can't wait to read the next two books.
I will say, I love a plausible dystopian setting. And Incubation absolutely delivered that. I was all for the world, and wanted to know more about it. Most of the characters, less so. Alexander and Feire were my favorites. They were both so spunky. Wyck and Halla annoyed me the entire book. Saben was... predictable.
There were some exciting moments in the book, but mostly it was sighing and waiting for the next thing to happen. They mention more than once that Everly's in the top 5% intellectually but she continually refers to her stomach as her tummy. Seriously. Tummy. I stopped calling my stomach my tummy (other than while pregnant), before I was 10.
I think what bothered me the most were the messages that the book tries to send. It's very preachy. God, the bible, and verses/themes are prevalent through the whole book. I feel like the author of A Wrinkle in Time and Incubation could have been very good friends. I also felt like the book is saying the true separation of church and state is what will lead to the pragmatists, and RESCOs. Which is absurd, in my opinion. I feel like pro-life/pro-choice is a big kicker in the 2nd half of the book. And really, I read novels to enjoy a good story. If I want to be swayed to the right or left I'll read the newspaper next time.
I will not be continuing this series. I am more than happy to leave it where it is.
As well, this had a much stronger YA feel than many YA dystopian fiction books I've encountered in the past few years. It felt more...what's the word? Wholesome? It pulled too many punches when it was time to get raw and real.
Additionally, there was an aggressive amount of Christianity peppered in, in the way of prayer, Bible scripture quotations, and identification of Bibles (the books) everywhere. It was distracting, and added nothing valuable to the story. If this future society had somehow been denied religious freedom, I could see a resurgence of an organized religion being a part of the whole "underground rebellion" theme, but there was no indication of it being anything other than the author's decision to push Christianity on her readers.

16 year old Everly Jax was raised in a repo centre called InKubator 9. In amongst other repo kids. Once 16 they get to reunite with their parents. Everly's parents don't show though and this sets in motion a chain reaction of events that bring herself, her pregnant friend Halla and Wyck to escape the Kube in search of Halla's boyfriend who is a soldier. If caught Halla will have her baby taken from her and sent to a different Kube and the trio would be arrested. Everly also has an ulterior motive, she has to find out who her parents are. After finding out no one knows as she was abandoned at the Kube doors as a week old baby. Everyone is entered into the DNA data base though, aren't they?
Enjoyable book with no real proper ending to this particular part of the story, it is a trilogy but I felt like this book ended abruptly. Not really a cliffhanger, it just stopped.
My only real complaints would be:
1. The character of Halla, who came across as an utter airhead constantly making terrible decisions and forcing the rest of the protagonists to rescue her from danger again and again. This was exacerbated by the fact that the constant need to rescue her seemed to be the only thing driving the narrative forward.
2. The "cliffhanger bang in the middle of a sudden crisis" ending really ruined the book for me. I was a few pages from the end, ready to give it a solid 4 stars and continue on to book 2, but that ending put me right off. Such a cheap and nasty way to try and sell book 2.
I really enjoyed this first instalment and look forward to reading parts 2 & 3.
