The only hope for humanity isn't human. In a world where people have been all but wiped out by a virus created by part-human cyborgs called 'Partials', and where no baby survives longer than three days, a teenage girl makes it her mission to find a cure, and save her best friend's unborn child. But finding a cure means capturing a Partial!
About the Author
Dan Wells is the author of the John Cleaver series: I Am Not a Serial Killer, Mr Monster, and I Don't Want to Kill You. He has been nominated for both the Hugo and Campbell award and has won two Parsec Awards for his podcast, Writing Excuses. He plays a lot of games, reads a lot of books and eats a lot of food, which is pretty much the ideal life he imagined for himself as a child.
"A thrilling sci-fi adrenaline rush, with one of the most compelling and frightening visions of Earth's future I've seen yet. I couldn't put it down" PITTACUS LORE, New York Times bestselling author of I AM NUMBER FOUR "Mr. Wells has recombined familiar dystopian elements, added original ones and thrown in dashes of dry wit to create a sprawling, action-packed medical thriller full of big ideas and exciting reversal." The Wall Street Journal "Kira is a bold heroine with lofty goals, and readers will willingly follow her to the sequel, where things are sure to tilt again." ALA Booklist "A dark, wild ride."
