The human race is all but extinct after a war with Partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by RM, a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island while the Partials have mysteriously retreated. The threat of the Partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to RM in more than a decade. Our time is running out.
Kira, a sixteen-year-old medic-in-training, is on the front lines of this battle, seeing RM ravage the community while mandatory pregnancy laws have pushed what's left of humanity to the brink of civil war, and she's not content to stand by and watch. But as she makes a desperate decision to save the last of her race, she will find that the survival of humans and Partials alike rests in her attempts to uncover the connections between them—connections that humanity has forgotten, or perhaps never even knew were there.
Well let's just say I cant believe I put this book down! I was always excited to read this. I'm happy that I finished it! Even though it ended with a cliff hanger... Plus the cover is gorgeous!
First chapter: The world is destroy by partials 11 years ago. Now they are trying to rebuild but the problem is they can't reproduce. Every time a baby is born, it dies in secs. They have no idea why. Kira is one of the nurses and she hates how baby are dying and no one is doing anything about it except write down information.
Kira is a independent person. A very strong woman. Even though she's only a teenager. If she says to do something, you will do it! I love everything about her!
Kira and Marcus: They are cute :) I love the romance between them. I love how they always argue with each other. They seem more real. Kira keeps turning Marcus down.
I love Samm! I love the relationship between him and Kira. I'm hoping to see more of them in the future! :)
I definitely love her friends. They are so supportive!
There's a whole lot of action in this book. I just love it so much! One of my favorite books in 2012. You will definitely love this book! I promise you!
