As she tried to find answers and her friend, she is pitted against the police and
two prominent power players in the new world order, Purity and Utopia Genetics. Purity is the organization responsible for administering DNA tests to identify genetic markers for plague to quarantine and possibly euthanize them and their families. Utopia Genetics has patterned with Purity to provide all the medical equipment and analysis which aids with their genetic research department. Together that help brainwash the populace and add a veneer of civilization and seem to outrank the police.
Though a little reminiscent of James Patterson's Maximum Ride series, there are a variety of different elements to recommend this TV mini series in book form. One being the wireheads who have replaced computer systems. Wireheads have human bodies maintained somewhere, but wired to run different aspects of society who network and exchange favors depending on where they operate. New to TV mini series in book form, I really look forward to Season 2.
Starting from the dedication to Joss Whedon, my expectations were high, and fulfilled. I did feel as though I were dropped into the middle of a story, rather than the beginning, and I found myself battling to make sense of where we were in time and history, and I really like that unsettling feeling. Throughout "series 1", more detail becomes clear, but when you commence "episode 1" you are caught off guard with a new and peculiar version of the world ... leaving you to figure out Purity, Utopia, S.I.D., Freaks, and the riffy system... but it was enough to suck me in to want to know more!
I received an ARC copy of Kymiera for my honest review.
Excellent! A gripping dystopian future world after a world-wide viral catastrophe. The protagonist, Chloe, is a young girl but is rather more resourceful than most YA heroines - though this isn't, despite Chloe, really a YA book. Over six 'episodes' we learn about the world as well as her friend Melinda. The supporting cast is mostly well-drawn (though Mercedes Smith is a bit two dimensional - something of a dyed-in-the-wool villain even if Purity Special Agent Graham is a nastier character all round). I liked DI Mitchell and his sidekick Yates - and the wirehead Lament (for more on that you'll have to read the book!). Dog and Jason were also intriguing with tantalising glimpses into their earlier lives..
The world was well constructed, with hints of what happened rather than gruesome details which cleverly left me wanting to know more (not least about the SID virus as well as those wireheads).
It is a good sign when a book is satisfying (even if the ending is a bit of a cliff-hanger) while leaving you wanting more!
So far this has been a really well crafted story. It has that feeling of binge watching a shower over a weekend. Each chapter is told from a different character (good guys/bad guys) intertwine all the pieces to advance the story.
Set in the future after a disastrous plague had wiped out part of the population. No one is uneffected by what has happened. The government monitors you through implants, food is rationed, luxuries are scarce and hard to come by- there's fear and distrust in everyone you come in contact with.
I loved this! I want there to be more of this! I couldn't help but feeling like we need to understand our own history or we're doomed to repeat it.
This book took me a long time to get through. I liked the characters, especially Chloe Dark. The book jumps from the point of view of many different characters. Dog was a little hard to envision how he looked. I thought his dog sense was cool and he had great tracking skills. Jason was an interesting character. His super speed and lifting skills were impressive. The teacher being a lesbian was a surprise and a great twist. There were a lot of great twists in the plot. The book was very descriptive and put you right there. I could see what the warehouse looked like when it exploded. I was surprised by what Chloe turned into. I wasn't sure what it was. The way it was described was very detailed though. Overall a great book.
