Thanks for the engaging review! I'm excited to read this book! I'm intrigued by the Russian ancestry and to see what supernatural abilities each of the characters have! Looking forward to reading!

I’m not much into Ya books or sci-fI, so I don’t think this one is for me. But it does sound like the author does a great job capturing the mindset of a teenager in the main character.

This might be something I'd be interested, I'm kind of on a break from YA Fantasy for a bit because I lot of it was getting too predictable and I can't stand to read another love triangle. So, I guess as long as someone can promise me that another girl or guy isn't going to get thrown into the Adam/Carly mix I'd be okay with it. It's always good to see knew authors coming out with quality and thought out material.

I’m not sure I would enjoy this book, but I’m sure my brother would like it. It seems to be the perfect mix of science fiction and suspense.

I wanted to read this based purely on the cover and genre, and after reading your review I want to read it even more! I can overlook a couple of spelling errors for a good story and strong protagonists, which is what it seems I'll be getting with Adam and Carly. Thanks for a great review!

I'm glad Adam grows as a character throughout the book. His former thoughts were disturbing. Thanks for the review :)

The book seems action packed and the characters artfully dynamic, based on your review. I am interested in how it all plays out. Thanks for your review.

The meet cute as described in the review is very Twilight but based on the sample, it's written better. I'm willing to continue reading given the reviewer's praise.

You had me hooked at mutated and biokenretic abilities. I have been fond of superheroes and X-Men for years and am looking forward to reading this book. Thanks for the great review.

Sounds like an interesting book to read. I was wondering about the terminology used in the book. Will the wording become confusing when reading sci-fi for the first time? Not one of my favorite genres.
