  • Engrossing story

    This is a coming of age story that takes place in a not so distant future where humankind has been decimated by a flu pandemic followed by starvation, war and chaos. Adding to the problems are the locusts. Not just regular locusts, but creatures that have evolved into super locusts that cruise the landscape eating everything green and preventing the remaining people from growing any food outdoors. At the beginning of the story we meet Everly at sixteen. She lives in a complex designed to house and raise regular kids. There are also genetically altered kids but they are given to families who have received a license to raise them. Everly is proving to be a gifted biologist and under the tutelage of her professor she is searching for a way to stop the locusts. Her best friend Halla gets pregnant and knowing she will not be allowed to keep the baby, convinces Everly and another friend, Wyck to run away with her to an outpost where she hopes to settle down with the baby's father. Everly reluctantly agrees to go with Halla and Wyck, whom she has a crush on. I really enjoyed the characters in this story. I could empathize with the protagonist, Everly, as she struggles with her personal desires vs loyalty to her best friend. Her best friend, Halla, is singleminded in her quest to keep her baby as only a teenager could be. Wyck is heartbreakingly a typical teenage boy, full of bravery one minute and stupidity the next. Well worth the read. Already downloaded book 2.

  • Incubation

    Great read. An insightful look into a potential future. Good character development. Good enough to want to purchase the remaining two books in the trilogy!

  • Dystopian teen fiction

    Excellent teen fiction, had me wanting to read the next in the series. If you liked the Hunger Games, Divergent etc then you will like this.

  • Very good read

    Clean, quick read. The story was easy to follow, plenty of twists with people you really start to care about. A very different take on a post apocalyptic world. The title doesn't really fit, I hope it's explained in the next 1.

    Thanks for your feedback!
