The author does a good job building a complex world, and all action and reaction happen because of the societal construct the author sets up.
Unfortunately, the plot and the mechanics of the writing itself detracted heavily from the impact this book could have had. To me, the plot was too much like Divergent, with just details separating them in essence. The text itself was riddled with so many grammar errors (missing or wrong punctuation, changing verb tenses, wrong or missing words, misspellings--even once plague was spelled plaque!) that at times it was hard to read. The author certainly didn't have a copyeditor or even a proofreader; I don't even think she ran it through the free grammar checker Grammarly!
I wanted to like this book because I think having a future plague in a dystopian society is a fascinating story idea. Pity it wasn't actually used much in the plot! More pity, too, that the text was hard to read due to so many errors.
Daniel was a fun character to read about. He was determined and quite a bright young man, and he had a lot of heart and cared about others. He would do anything for his friends and family, and those he cared about. He wanted to pass the test with amazing scores and strived to make it into the top faction of medical and science. Along the way he grew weary of the system’s true intentions and wanted to see if everything they were all lead to believe was truth or if the system was lying to them all and had other plans.
It was fun to read the story from Daniel’s point of view and see things through the perspective and eyes of a young teenager. It was a refreshing story and I enjoyed the book. I look forward to the next book in the series.
