Publisher: Smashwords/Createspace; 234 pages
I had no name. My assignment was M001/A5. Marpesia Project Test One, Fifth Embryo. I wasn’t considered human. I was a thing to be owned.
I just wanted freedom. I wanted out of the lab and away from being the guinea pig for hundreds of scientists. I wanted to see the world with my eyes not through a computer monitor.
Instead I took two bullets, fell from twenty stories and ran to save my life. From who and what I had no idea and that wasn’t important at the time. Life was important.
I had my freedom but no idea what to do with it. There’s no way to out run the past, and I had to face it. There were too many strings loose and too many people that would be more than happy to lock me in a cage again.
Life was an evolution of natural selection but thanks to human intervention I was Unnatural. I would be deciding who to allow living, and who needed to die.
This sci-fi, dystopian genre has really become one of my favorites to read, and I knew when I saw this book, this was one that I had to pick up and read, and I am so glad that I did.
We start out meeting M001/A5 a.k.a Charlie. She wants to be like everyone else, but she isn't and one of her doctors make sure she knows that. But luckily for her, she has another doctor who does care for her and love her like she was his own child. The story begins strong and takes off on an adventure ride that doesn't seem to end. I was taken aback in the middle of the book, once she arrives at the school, only because it seems to deviate a little bit from the initial story, but it picked back up in the end.
I loved Emery and An right away, especially An. He just seemed like the guy friend we all wish that we had. It was interesting to learn about Rhys background too, that helped out a lot too with understanding the whole story.
The ending was so intense I couldn't put the book down. I definitely loved this book!!
