This is the first book in the Variant seris set within the Enhanced universe.
All Variants live by one rule – you run, you hide…or you die.
Ever since the disappearance of her father, Paige Adler has been hiding in the system. She spends her days packing ration boxes, and her nights on the hunt, secretly seeking justice against those who prey on her people.
Just like her father once did.
One night, when tracking a killer, Paige stumbles upon something far bigger than her own personal vendetta…
In the shadows of the city, the Resistance still lingers, all but destroyed fifteen years before. Her father once fought for them, and it cost him his life. Now, they want Paige to join them too.
Drawn in by a handsome but mysterious Variant, Paige soon discovers that the enemy is building a secret weapon, one that could destroy not only the Resistance, but all Variants, once and for all.
In order to survive, they have to fight. And Paige, her powers, and her past, might just be the key to the future…
I enjoyed reading this book. The characters were good and the storyline was good. It was refreshing to see yet another side to the Enhanced world.
Paige was a good character. She was clearly clever and I enjoyed seeing her life and gifts. For such a clever character though, she did think a little bit immature at times, especially after being told no. I think instead of thinking rashly like she did, there were better ways of going around it. She was a good character nonetheless ad I’m looking forward to seeing how she develops.
The storyline was good as well. Like every other series in the Enhanced world, the life they live is so different. The plot developed well, although I found it a little bit slower than usual. I’m looking forward to seeing how it continues to develop though.
Overall, this book was very enjoyable to read. It can easily be read as a standalone series, or it can be read with the rest of the Enhanced series.
I would definitely recommend it.
My rating/ 4/5*
