Arriving at the new government bunker, things quickly go from bad to worse. I am separated from Finn and my family because of my ability to connect with Arvies through telepathy. Housed with three other Readers—and kept away from the general population—we are given serum injections in effort to enhance our thought transference. The end goal? Thought manipulation.
We are considered humanity’s only hope in the war against the Arvy race.
With the ever growing threat of an invasion, the government demands results from the Reader program by doling out ultimatums, and using our loved ones against us.
But they will not break me.
My name is Abigail Park. I am intransigent.
Copy gifted by the author in exchange for an honest review.
What can I say? WOW! Cameo just gets better and better with her story. Her writing improved so much that it’s even harder to put the book down! I had trouble to stay awake today at work, because I pulled almost a full nighter! But it was SO worth it! The book is simply amazing!
The story is so much more than what I thought at the beginning! With Abi’s new abilities, the new government want to use her to control the Arvies. After Abi is starting to get the newly found injections, things are getting so interested and there is so much more action! It kept me on my toes all the time!
The feelings between Abi and Finn is even stronger than what it was before, even though they were separated. I love that about them. They know that they are perfect for each other and are fighting to be together, but at the same time they don’t forget their responsibilities, so it doesn’t feel like a teenager crush, but a full blown love. Simply as that.
But the best thing here? The best thing in this part is the description of how Abi is growing, maturing and becoming a strong, responsible young woman.
The new characters, the twins are also a vital part of the book and a part of the programme “Reader”, Abi befriends them. After all the conspiracy, secrets and everything that is ugly is revealed Abi finds the strength in her to lead her lead her loved one to safety and to finally find a place for them to be happy.
I can’t wait for the next part(s) of the series and how everything will play out.
Another 5 stars!
Reviews on Previous Parts:
I wanted to kick myself in a bum that I have not started this book much earlier. I’m asking myself WHY? The book is amazing. I love dystopian books and the concept in Cameo’s book is just perfect.
The beginning of the story starts with a preface that the government knew about the apocalypse, but decided to ignore it? Save only the worthy ones? And because of it it’s even more terrifying that it actually can be true. That THIS can happen.
The main character, Abi, is telling us the story from her POV. It all begun for her, when her dad took them and their neighbours to a safe place, that he created with other people who where survivalist. She was 4 then. After that over a decade passed and they are now ready to return to surface and rebuild the world. But….there is always a but! The injection that were supposed to help people turned them into mutants and now they are simply craving human meat. They are aggressive, mad and simply not human.
When the journey starts and fight for survival begins, the book turns into a fast paced, conspiracy/survivalist book with a bit of a romance.
The characters are amazingly well developed. They are not perfect in everything but every single one of them is good in something. And that’s what makes them a perfect team.
What I love about the world Cameo created? That the mutants are not Zombies, undead. They are very much alive. The book keeps you on the edge of the book, even though the romance part takes you a bit away from the whole action, but I think it was needed. Why? Because it shows that even when everything is destroyed around us, there is a chance to have other feelings. To think only about fighting and surviving.
Amazing, 5 star read!
The story picks up where the previous part left. It’s so packed with so much more action and feelings. Abi is still being held captive by the new bunkers representatives and she is being questioned regarding some mysterious cases that were happening in here. But what is the worst? She is being threatened by the fellow survivalist. There is no team work here between the other bunkers and it’s disappointing, that even after a huge apocalypse people are still fighting for the power. They are still greedy and don’t tolerate people who are way too curious.
In here we are falling in love with Finn again *sigh*. I love that boy. And what I love more? That the author is not rushing things. The pacing between Abi and Finn is just perfect. Their feeling are blooming naturally, so there is no feeling: because we survived we have to be together. No. It feels like they were destined to be together.
Cameo’s writing is just perfect. The way the story is told, compels you and pulls you in. And believe me. Few times I believed in her world.
Another amazing, perfect book. 5 Stars!
