Maladapted - Book Review

by Richard Kurti

What is it about:
Cillian is the sole survivor of a devastating terrorist attack on a packed Metro train. How did he survive when everyone else was killed? Searching for answers with the mysterious Tess, Cillian discovers that his father has links to P8, a group of genetic scientists operating outside the laws of Foundation City. The shocking discoveries he and Tess make at P8's secret hospital start to make Cillian ask not who he is, but what he is.

What did I think of it:
This a nice read.

Although the lead characters are sixteen the book reads more as if it was written for Middle Grade in my opinion. There was lots of suspense and action, but it lacked depth. Huge issues were tackled, but it all stayed near the surface. To be honest: I've read tons of Middle Grade books that took the reader deeper into the story than this book does.

The lead characters both have tons of things going on, but the lack of depth made that I didn't connect with them.

Still this book is entertaining. The action makes that this is a fast read, and I enjoyed the overall story. It ends in a way that leaves itself open for a sequel, but I'm not sure I'll pick that up if/when it releases though.

Why should you read it:
It's an enjoyable, action-packed read.
