Crazy, brilliant, ingenious
They are the three words I would use to describe ‘This Mortal Coil’
In a tech controlled world Catarina and her father Lauchlan are genius’. He is known for his brilliance, but in the past has made mistakes, now the virus is coming for all of them and he needs to make a vaccine. Cartaxus – the company that controls the apps that are available to change your world for the better, from making food taste better, to helping you heal.
I really enjoyed this book, it sits clearly on the YA Sci-fi and fantasy shelf, has interesting characters and its easy to connect with Catarina as you read. Today’s world is so full of technology with a lot of it being managed by apps the future vision feels like it’s a path we could be headed down, scientific research, only learning so much from animals and the ability to grow horns or change your hair colour at the push of a button feels like its nearly a possibility. Its all about trying to outwit nature and change evolution – perfect for getting your imagination fired up.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This Mortal Coil is due for release on 02 November 2017.
This was a lovely surprising ARC from net galley, in exchange for an honest review.
