“It’s funny, that saying—I’d rather die. It’s funny because nobody means it. The truth is that when you’re facing death, there’s no telling what you’ll do.”
-This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada
Wow! Wow! Wow! If you are looking for a new dystopian series then this one is for you! Definitely for you!
Gosh this story was pretty incredible. It’s a well thought out story that you won’t be able to put down. It take place in the future when geneticists are able to put software into bodies that allow people to of things like change their DNA or heal themselves. A new virus begins to take the world by storm that causes people to explode and infect others. The only way to survive is to eat those infected (gross) or go in an underground bunker until a vaccine is found. There is only one scientist that can help. Lachlan Agatta, father of Catarina is taken without consent to help find a cure. Two years later Cole, a genetically enhanced solider shows up to tell Catarina that her father his dead and it’s his mission to protect her. Together they try to unlock Lachlan’s work to find a cure for the virus plaguing the world. Like I mentioned, this story is well thought out and will leave you on the edge of your seat. The characters are well developed and badass, including Catarina. It seriously has everything you’d want from a book. I am definitely glad I came across this book in the bookstagram community and don’t think it’s getting enough praise. I am also glad that I don’t have to wait for the next book! I’ll be reading (actually listening because I did this one on audio) ASAP.
