This is quite the world that author Mary Twomey has created. It appears to be a possible future of our own world. I love the careful attention to detail, such as all girls born in the same year, have the same middle name. To add a twist to the population, she has given the Bs the opportunity to undergo the Change to extend their life span by many decades.
There are strict class rules which seem quite daunting, though they do thin within the work place. The lowest of Bs always outrank As, yet Baird still manages to keep control of the activities within the business he manages. Makes this a very real society in my view.
The role of family is explored in this novel. Elle and Grettel are not related to Blue and Baird, yet they live together and care for each other as family. These bonds are further tested when several Vemreaux become involved with the siblings.
The further I got into this story, the more I liked Blue and even Baird. I did not want to book to end, but I wanted to find out what happens, did she fulfil the prophecy.
The last part is not answered yet, as the story continues in the next book The Truth, which I am looking forward to,
One thing that I wasn't a huge fan of was how each chapter would switch character perspectives very frequently. It was easy enough to follow along but sometimes I had to think about who was narrating certain paragraphs for things to make sense.
I don't know if future books will touch on this but I also want to know more about the science perspective of the world. Why certain blood types are better than others, if the Rh factor plays any role, why they haven't mentioned AB as a blood type, etc. Maybe there was some mass segregation of A's and B's that caused AB's to die out but so far there has been no mention of AB's even existing, oh well.
But towards the end we get glimpses of emotion from both of them and the parting scene was very emotional and made me cry. I’m interested to see what happen next.
A little slow in the beginning but quickly picking up speed this is on of the most unique stories I have ever read. Mary Tworney is a wonderful author who keeps you guessing and pulls at your heartstrings again and again.
I was fascinated by every part of blue and her families world as their lives went from children in the way to adults in the outside world. Again and again they found the strength to go on to push forward and I couldn't have been prouder! My fav of them all would have to be Elle she kept them all together and kept them from killing each other...lol...she was spunky, sassy and full of life and the others loved her for it.
I so can wait to see what happens next on Blues adventure! I really like the boys Liam, Alec, Sam and Brody. They will make a good team and I hope they all succeed.
If you haven't red this yet do so now as it is an awesome story!
