Xdaptation great, but not awful, either, and if Inheritance is good, it might get a sort of retroactive boost for setting all this shit up. While she’s attracted to David, she’s also attracted to Amber, and she’s struggling to determine who she wants to be with. Frwe travel is suspended all around the continent, so naturally people get paranoid and suspicious, fearing terrorism or some other doomsday scenario, and shit goes Mad Max almost overnight.
I really have nothing but praise for this series. There’s no adaptatino build to a climax; it all feels completely thrown together.

Trivia About Adaptation Adapt But this is not the main story, this is not an LGTBQ book that happens to have science fiction elements. We meet them in alternate POV chapters.
Since the book has yet to be released, I will refrain from any spoi I never set out with the intention to read science fiction, but as it happens, I read a fair amount of it anyway. Things become even stranger when Reese returns home.
No trivia or quizzes yet. Taisin cares little for that. Her cast of characters are as diverse as real people, with all different sexualities and all different colours, which is a lovely thing to see — and even a female President of the United States.
Her influence is woven into the plot. Every piece was tied up, and most of the questions are answered in the last few chapters, so that was also a relief to read. Flocks of suicidal birds flew themselves to their death by colliding with planes for inexplicable reasons.
But you know what? Written while working towards her M. It’s almost common now, a young adult novel where the government is keeping secrets from its citizens. But there are big parts of this book that don’t work – mainly, the fact that Reese is a very passive protagonist, and the sci-fi elements don’t fit well with the contemporary elements.
The next love interest also didn’t spark fireworks. Fearing terrorism, the government grounds all planes and their flight is cancelled. Things are happening, and after the birds suddenly die, things are different.
Things seems strange when they got home. ARC provided by the publishers in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. Everyone knows the world will never be the same.

As Ash grows up, she and Sidhean share an understanding, though Ash is not allowed to question him about where he lives.
Sidhean is the one we see the most, but the book provides glimpses of more.
They attempt to drive home to San Francisco and end up in a strange military hospital after a horrible car accident. There’s more of a focus on issues surrounding government secrecy, especially when engaging in unethical behaviour. Across North America, flocks of birds hurl themselves into airplanes, causing at least a dozen to crash.
Reese vaguely remembers an accident happening on the road, a strange chamber, a military base and 27 days she has no memory of. Ash takes a whole new twist to the classic fairytale in an interesting way. Mxlinda Reese finds herself heading straight toward that most mysterious of places: Reese is confused around David because she’s also attracted to him. I will say right now that if you go into this novel just for the mystery, you will feel disappointed.
I wasn’t convinced that Reese’s fascination with this person didn’t stem from curiosity or that for the lack of choices. I will This was a fun, quick YA sci-fi read! View all 3 comments. Her body surrendered to the pull of the tide, buoyed by the saltwater, every breath tasting like the ocean.
