Cat thought the Hydra epidemic was over, but when new cases pop up, Cat must team up with an enemy to fix the vaccine before the virus spirals out of control in this thrilling sequel to This Mortal Coil, which New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman says "redefine's 'unputdownable.'"
The nightmare of the outbreak is finally over, but Cat's fight has only just begun.
Exhausted, wounded, and reeling from revelations that have shaken her to her core, Cat is at a breaking point. Camped in the woods with Cole and Leoben, she's working day and night, desperate to find a way to stop Lachlan's plan to reprogram humanity. But she's failing—Cat can't even control her newly regrown panel, and try as she might to ignore them, she keeps seeing glitching visions from her past everywhere she turns.
When news arrives that the Hydra virus might not be as dead as they'd thought, the group is pushed into an uneasy alliance with Cartaxus to hunt down Lachlan and fix the vaccine. Their search takes them to Entropia, a city of genehackers hidden deep in the desert that could also hold the answers about Cat's past that she's been searching for.
But when confronted with lies and betrayals, Cat is forced to question everything she knows and everyone she trusts. And while Lachlan is always two steps ahead, the biggest threat to Cat may be the secrets buried in her own mind.
Oh, man, this book was so fantastic to read! I did take a few times to really get into it, it is a fairly hefty book, but just like This Mortal Coil, once I was into it, yeah, the pages just flew right on by! I just loved reading it!
After the big reveal in the first book about Cat and Jun Bei, I just wanted to know more about how that was going to affect Cat in this book. And yeah, it's not easy, and it turns out there's more then what we know. So much happened there!
We also go to explore more of this world, and we met Anna, who is Cole's biological sister, so she was pretty interesting to met! We also went to Entropia, which was pretty interesting, and the idea of redefining what being human means, yeah, that's pretty interesting!
And that ending, oh! So much was going on, so many reveals, from her parentage, to the whole two personalities in one brain. And what the lines of code were for. Which just makes me so eager for the final book in the series!
This book was fantastic, and I can't wait for This Vicious Cure!
