I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I do not and will not accept monetary compensation for reviews. These are my original thoughts and opinions.
In a crumbling, futuristic Las Vegas where the wealthy choose the characteristics of their children like ordering off a drive-thru menu, seventeen-year-old Sienna Preston doesn’t fit in. As a normal girl surrounded by genetically modified teenagers, all of her imperfections are on display. But after the death of her father, everything she’s ever known and loved changes in an instant.
With little skills to help provide for her family, Sienna clings to the two things that come easily—lying and stealing. But not all thief-for-hire assignments go as planned. When a covert exchange of a stolen computer chip is intercepted, she becomes entangled with a corrupt government official who uses her thieving past as leverage, her mother as collateral, and the genetically modified poster boy she’s falling for as bait.
In order to rescue her mother, there may only be one option—joining forces with the Fringe, an extremist group, and their young leader who’s too hot to be bad. Problem is, these revolutionaries aren’t what they seem, and the secrets they’re hiding could be more dangerous than Sienna is prepared for. In the end, she must be willing to risk everything to save the one thing that matters most.
Sienna is a strong character. Definitely coming across as the lead person in her family, she does what needs to be done in order to take care of her mother and sister. One mission will change her life forever and lead her on a journey that will uncover truths she never knew existed.
A very well written and engaging story. The characters are realistic and make their way into your heart. I always love a good end of the world as we know it story and this one did not disappoint. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
