“Welcome to the world of a universal cure.
Gordon Harding didn’t ask for the life he has. He didn’t ask to be orphaned. He didn’t ask to go through life with cancer. And he certainly didn’t ask to be pulled into a future world without warning–a world where every human being is controlled by means of a medical implant.
And when he learns that he’s the only one who can destroy the base of operations, he’s faced with an impossibly painful choice: either hide and let the world decay under this mysterious futuristic force, or rescue humanity from oppression, knowing that there’s someone out there who is willing to use any means necessary to stop him.” (from Amazon)
I picked up this book by J. Grace Pennington on a whim and read it as fast as I possibly could. It had such a clever, interesting sci-fi plot that wasn’t too confusing but just mysterious enough to keep me reading. 😉 I was also pleased to find that the author did more character development than in the Firmament series, which was a big bonus. I enjoyed it so much especially Doc and Neil; but unfortunately it gets pretty graphic in the violence area (battle scenes and descriptive deaths), so I won’t be able to give it a five star review. If you’re a good skim reader though, I highly recommend this fantastic story!
And the good news for you is that Implant is part of Homeschooled Authors’ Read-to-Win , so this summer you can try it out for only a dollar! 😉 Pretty sweet, eh?
