Now I’m the one saying “[insert name here] YOU NEED TO READ THIS”
Song Choice: “Murder in the City” by the Avett Brothers, “No Sound but the Wind” by the Editors
First thoughts: So I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I started this, was it vampires (the graveyard cover), was it superheroes (something from the description), was it a heavily influenced romance? (comments my friend made ;)) WHAT TO EXPECT, WHAT TO EXPECT. Well here is a run down: Expect the unexpected. Expected to be blown away by the writing, the twist that you just didn’t see happen, and the twist maybe were expecting a little but in your head you are just going….noooooo, nooooo, but its so true. Expect: Greatness.
Thoughts on Plot: So I will admit when i first opened this up on my kindle and saw the syringe and mosquito i wanted to message my friend and go, “Wtf??” First off mosquito aside from the common house fly (or moths…moths are scary as hell) are the MOST HATED BUGS EVER….EVER. And currently my house is being taken over by them, swarms of them….so imagine my distaste for them. And syringes? Nothing good comes from that. I moved on, I ignored it and realize how much of a powerful play they both take in this book. So its a bit (hahaha understatement of the year) of a mystery, this read. First off wondering who all these new players are, not to mention how can one girl’s life go to s*** so fast?! anyways….so in the midst of Amelia’s life going to s***, new information is being provided. Here is the thing, pay very, very close attention if you do you might catch onto a few things i started to catch on. I was intrigued by the whole idea of this book. An evil grandfather, doing evil experiments! Superpowers, hot angry male?! COUNT ME IN! Though i will admit these “superpowers” aren’t as AWE-inspiring as i was expecting like, no one has super strength, but these I guess now reflecting on it i wouldn’t call them super powers, i would call them curses. They aren’t meant to help the person who lives with the affliction. So to find out the whole mystery you will have to stay up until 3 am like me, and then wake up early to finish it as fast as you can. Oh and the emotions <3 <— there is my heart you can take it now….
Amelia: She i don’t even know how she is standing. A week this book takes place in, a week, not only does her life sort of suck after the first day, but its turned completely upside down almost every single day and she was still standing. I was amazed she didn’t freak/go into shock more often, she did once, which it was warranted, trust me. she wasn’t weak and I hate that is how Nick seemed see her as. I will get to him in a moment. Anyways she does do a few silly things but i like it more when characters do that, makes it all the more interesting, but i think she handles her situation very well, honestly i wanted to shake her for not freaking out more.
Nick: While my friend is in love with him, I think i still need some more convincing which i am sure in time will happen. Here is the thing though Nick thought he had a hard life, yeah he does from the glimpses we got, i can see that, but he isn’t the only one that had a hard life and I don’t think it was far how harsh he was on Amelia, but i do understand why he was as well. Either way i am eager to read more about him he seems like a complex character.
Max: Was interesting to say the least. That is all i am going to say because I don’t want to give anything away. ^.^
Villain: WOW. O.O even i would be quaking in my boots.
The ending: Definitely good, I want more!!
When we first meet Amelia Hamilton, she’s having a really bad day. She loses her job, her truck and her boyfriend all at once. Her aimless meandering leads her into the forest where she meets a mysterious man named Max. Max claims that he used to work with Amelia’s departed father at an organization called the IA, a shadowy network that deals in secret inventions with the potential to manipulate human DNA. From this point, the action takes off as Amelia become ensconced with Max and the other IA operatives based out of Washington state. There’s a brooding young man named Nick who has good reason to dislike Amelia despite the fact that he’s tasked with preparing her for an upcoming battle. The plot takes a number of twists and turns, and there are many places in the story that kept me turning pages long after I should have been asleep.
Ms. Carr is a wonderful writer. The dialogue is fresh and she has a beautiful way of describing both Amelia’s inner turmoil and the heartbreakingly cold landscape swirling around her, both literally and figuratively. I could feel the crunch of the snow underfoot as well as the anguish that Amelia goes through as she tries to figure out how the events happening around her connect back to her own tragic past. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loved the Divergent or Hunger Games series. I look forward to reading the next in the series.
Amelia is a 22 year old "orphan" who lost her parents when she was 3, and lived with her grandfather until he passed away when she was 5. Growing up in foster homes, and plagued by nightmares about needles and being injected in a basement as a child, she doesn't have any friends outside of Don, his sister Jenae, her best friend Kyra, and her live in boyfriend Connor. Her life is fairly uncomplicated even if her boyfriend is a total douche. At least until it all starts to unravel a week before her birthday. She loses her job, her car craps out on her, she finds her boyfriend in bed with her best friend and therefore homeless, and meets Max, a stranger, while contemplating the mess that is her life at a deserted lake in the middle of the night. Through Max, she'll learn that her past is not as straightforward as she thought, and that the grandfather who took her in when her parents "left", is not only alive, but truly a monster. As she slowly loses the only friends she has, she meets Nick, Molly, and eventually Dane who are all part of a secret group, a company called IA, who are hell bent on stopping her grandfather's experiments changing people's DNA. An experiment her grandfather started on her as child, and will ultimately complete on her 23rd birthday.
There are some really great twists to this book, and I probably would have liked it more if I could have really like some of the characters. Nick was too hard. And it isn't that I could not understand and slowly come to like him toward the end, but it took a while to get there. Molly was the only nice person throughout. Max was odd. I just wasn't sure what the heck to think of him given how he talked, acted toward Amelia and Nick, and his way of avoiding some of her questions. And Amelia, what more can I say about her? Her situation alone definitely made me feel for her, but her constant harping on "why me" just started to grate. Yes, she had it bad, but then so did Nick with the loss of his brother, his impending death at Amelia's hand, no other family, and his inability to touch another person without baring his past to them. He was angry, and resentful of her, but he still followed direction and looked at the bigger picture.
If you like suspenseful books, this is pretty good at delivering that. A contemporary thriller with a paranormal twist.
