REVIEW



Wow! What an Awesome adventure! I really enjoyed this book so much! I definitely thought I would like this book, but I had no idea how much I would really love it! The plot was unlike anything I've ever read. It was unpredictable and different, but in a good way kinda way. As soon as I thought I had something figured out, BAM, something I never could of imagined was thrown up in the mix! 

The writing and plot suck me in from the first page, and then I was hooked! The author has an amazing way with words, that just captivated me, and glued me to the pages, craving more. Even when their wasn't that much going on in the plot (Which wasn't Often) I was still glued to the pages, lost in this amazing adventure! It had so much action that I couldn't keep up with it! I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to keep up with my racing mind! This is truly an original and amazing book, that anyone who loves Sci-f and even dystopia will love, I have no doubt, it was sensational!!!

 THE PLOT:

Miranda wakes up alone on a bench and doesn't remember anything. She doesn't know who she is, where she came from, or what she's capable of. She only knows her name is Miranda and she's seventeen years old, that's it, that's all she can remember. So she strolls into a mall looking for answers, only to find trouble! She decides the best thing for her to do is to find help. So she seeks out the malls security guard, and for some reason she knows he's the one you go to if you need help. So that's what she does, she approaches the mall's guard and tells him she lost her memory and that she doesn't remember anything. The security guard thinks its just a big ol' high school prank that she's trying to pull, so he dismisses her and tells her to leave, but she insist that she's not lying. Things don't go good after that, and Miranda feels threatened by this guard and does something she didn't even know she could do. She sends out fear waves from her mind that emits fear and sends everyone around her into a panic. She has no idea what's going on as people start to go insane around her, she only knows she's the cause of their insanity. Everyone either flees or dies trying, except for this one boy sitting at a table eating chicken like nothings going on, and then that's when Miranda finally gets her answers!

Miranda is a weapon created to emit fear on those around her and send them into a panic. She is the ultimate weapon of destruction! And there are more like her! Peter, the boy in the mall is one of them. He tells her that she lost her memory because she missed her shots, and that if she doesn't come back with him to their home and take her daily shots, then it will start all over again, and she would never know who or what she is. So Miranda is convinced that the answers must lie with this boy Peter and decides the only way to find out where she belongs is to trust him and follow him back to "Their So Called Home." And that's when the real adventure starts!

All is not what it seems in Miranda's world, and as she tries to discover who or what she is, she comes to realize that the same people who created her, may be the same people that will try to end her. She goes on the mission of her life with her teammates in tow to find the truth behind The Creators and what their hiding. But what she finds might not only end her life, but the rest of the City, if The Creators are not stopped in time!  

Doesn't that sound amazing? It was, it really was a Fantastic read, and totally not what I was expecting, but in a good way! It was way better then anything I could of imagined, and I am really looking forward too jumping back into this series as soon as the second book release in a couple of days, on August 13, 2013! I will be reading it as soon as it releases!
