Book Review: Partials by Dan Wells
Kira is one of a small group of survivors left after a manufactured virus takes out most of the world. The immunity to the pathogen causes infertility and thus makes Kira consider the unthinkable; an alliance with the bio-engineered humans that caused the virus in the first place. When they capture the partial Samm, she begins to have even more questions.
Yes, I know this is an older series, but I’m just now getting to read it. I listened to the first two on audio and I am currently reading the third book. This series drew me in right away. I love the characters and the plot. I think the action sequences are believable and the moral issues faced by the characters are interesting discussion points.
I’m curious to see where the last book is headed, but so far so good!
