Concoction of a Review:
A novel wherein our abused main character, Josephine, races against time to find out what just makes her change into a most powerful human killing machine once a year. The same day every year she turns into a violent rage apparatus.
Josephine has felt as if she was the only one in the world behind a wall among the cured population,"drones". Sadness surrounded her with a disturbing youth in foster care & her sickness. However, Luke notices her. Against all of his government training as a Blood he is still drawn to the tiny frail person that Josephine has become.
It was a push and shove relationship. MS really enjoyed the tug of war in Josephine's head over Luke, herself trusting another, the government, the resistance & even the simplest gestures of being touched in a non threatening manner. Imagine fighting yourself over having a few good things happen to you because nothing nice has even occurred. The poor dear.
"I'd make it so that there was no cure, no censorship, no propaganda, nothing buy you and I."
It is a complex idea with adventure around many corners & was even hard as a reader to not stop and think about what a cure could really mean if it took away anger. How would you change??
