This Cruel Design Reviews
I seriously loved the first book in this series...and I almost, but not quite, loved the second book, too. When I wrote about This Mortal Coil, I said this was completely comprehensible and seriously compelling story, especially for a book involving gene hacking, splicing, decoding and lots of technical terms and such. I wish I could say that this book was the same for me...and it almost was, I just got a little lost in the beginning (and maybe, a little throughout)...but, eventually things st ...more
I received this book from Penguin Random House in exchange for an honest review.
This Cruel Design is the much anticipated sequel to bestselling YA dystopian This Mortal Coil which followed teenager Catarina as she tried to survive in a world where humans' bodies are ran by special, encoded tech but a virus with no cure is ravaging the world and causing people to form zombie-like habits before exploding, literally. Catarina's father is a world-renowned scientist who may be humanity's la ...more
An epic second instalment to this series! This Cruel Design starts one week after the events of This Mortal Coil, and it doesn't let up on action until the very end.

You know that super rare feeling where a sequel is as awesome as the first book in a series? Where it doesn't suffer from that "second book slump"? Such a unicorn, right? WELL. It happens here, friends! After the amazing twistiness that was This Mortal Coil, I was kiiiind of unsure if the author could replicate such amazing plot twists and surprises. Could she keep the characters develop ...more
I seriously hope someone makes this series into a TV show because it would be SO GOOD!!! Emily Suvada is bringing game to YA sci-fi with technology that feels feasible and based loosely on the real science of today. For those who are not familiar with This Mortal Coil, it takes place in the wake of a pretty horrific plague that has decimated much of humanity, in a world where genetic technology is commonplace. There is action, romance, drama, intrigue, basically all the things you want in a book ...more
CAN THIS COME OUT RIGHT NOW PLEASE?? 😩 That cover is so gorgeous
