Not only is the story unique, I mean the extinction of honey bees while creating a clone of bees (which is the cause of the extinction of bees) which causes the 'bee flu' which has killed thousands upon thousands of people. They create this vaccine for the bee flu which is limited and is given in doses as much as ten. These kids are given tattoos that show how many vaccines they've given. Turns out, over long periods of time, there are deadly side effects to this vaccine. The patient will become violent and insane in which then call these 'kids' beasts. Level Ten's are the deadliest and strongest but they are super rare. Can you guess what level our main character Fiona is?
The story starts out with Fiona waking up in her bed and thinking she was thirteen years old, the last age she remembers being. Her house is a disaster, completely destroyed and it's utterly deserted. Confused and disoriented, she wanders about looking for any sign of her family but what she finds isn't something she wanted to see. Her twin brother, Jonah, as something other than human. He seems more like an animal than anything else, sniffing the carpet and growling like a dog would.
Things get kind of crazy and one of the coolest things about this book is we get to learn about this world and all the crazy factors in it along with our main character, as she's been - well we don't know what's happened to her to make her forget or not remember four years of her life.Read more ›
Quick & Dirty: This was an action packed dystopian novel with a great plot, sweet romance, fun characters, all set in an intriguing world.
Opening Sentence: I don't remember going to sleep.
Fiona doesn't remember going to sleep; her last memory was when she was 13 years old. She was happily living with her family. Her dad was retired from the air force, her older sister was in college, and her twin brother was one of her best friends. As she wakes up in her room, her house looks as if it has been abandoned for years. She has a strange tattoo on her right hand and she has no idea what has happened. She soon finds out that the world is very different from what she remembers. She seems to be much older than 13 years old, and her family is missing. The world has become overrun with beasts that use to be human. There was a vaccination that went terribly wrong and turned all its recipients into beasts. There are different levels of beasts depending on how long they got the vaccination; the highest level is a 10 because they got the vaccination for ten months. Level 10s are the strongest and most ferocious. The beasts have no humanity left in them, and they kill without hesitation.
To protect the rest of the people, a walled city has been built and only those with the best of health and enough money have been allowed to reside in the city. Everyone else is left outside to fend for themselves. The militias guard the walls and any beasts that are captured are sent to the labs to be evaluated so a cure can be found. Fiona has the tattoo and she is a level 10, but she is totally normal. She has no systems that point to her being a beast.Read more ›
One of the first thing she notices is a strange tattoo on her hand; how did THAT get there? Oddly, she'd seen it on Jonah's hand, too. It's not immediately clear what the mark indicates, but we know it's not good when Fiona discovers it's known as "The Mark of the Beast." She wanders through a deserted Denver neighborhood, seeing only snarling, snapping dogs until...a group of men pointing assault rifles at her. A child appears and escorts Fiona underground through a manhole cover to safety. The child, a snarky girl named Arrin, demands payment for her trouble in the form of precious food or honey, and Fiona realizes again that this is not the world she remembers.
An exciting opening to this book quickly starts to fall apart, despite an interesting story that had a lot of potential. Arrin advises Fiona to look like a boy in order to stay safe. This involves chopping off her hair and binding her breasts. And...it works. I had a hard time with this. I'm going to guess that at least 90% of teenage girls and women will still look female, even with short hair. Maybe Fiona falls into that (generous) 10% who don't? The imperative for Fiona to pass as a male was a major focal point of the book that quickly became tiresome.Read more ›
