Publisher's Summary

The human race is all but extinct after a war with Partials - engineered organic beings identical to humans - has decimated the population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by RM, a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island while the Partials have mysteriously retreated. The threat of the Partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to RM in more than a decade. Our time is running out.

Kira, a sixteen-year-old medic-in-training, is on the front lines of this battle, seeing RM ravage the community while mandatory pregnancy laws have pushed what's left of humanity to the brink of civil war, and she's not content to stand by and watch. But as she makes a desperate decision to save the last of her race, she will find that the survival of humans and Partials alike rests in her attempts to uncover the connections between them - connections that humanity has forgotten, or perhaps never even knew were there.

Dan Wells, acclaimed author of I Am Not a Serial Killer, takes readers on a pulsepounding journey into a world where the very concept of what it means to be human is in question - one where our humanity is both our greatest liability and our only hope for survival.

    "A new favorite!"

    This is the first book I have listened too in a long time that I just couldn't walk away until it was finished. Great story, relatable characters, plenty of twists to keep you guessing, and an amazing reader make this book an A+ in my opinion. I can't wait for more!

    "Loved this book!"

    The story was true to the dystopian genre that seems so popular today. The naration was done very well. I can't wait to start the second installment in the series.

    "So good"

    I listened to this entire book in a single day. I could not stop - binged on it. The characters are great and the suspense in the story is fantastic. What is right? What is wrong? Question everything.
