A heart-pumping futuristic thrill-ride set in a frightening dystopian society. 2016 Once Upon A Book Award Winner.
It is the year 4006, and nuclear war has come to the United States. With tens of thousands killed and countless more injured or terminally ill from the blasts, there is no more “normal”…life will never be the same. For her part, Blythe Sol is reeling from the loss of her arm and an eye in one of the blasts – her dreams of following in her father’s footsteps and joining the military completely shattered. When she hears about the Restoration Project – a bionic government program that offers the sick and injured a second chance – she immediately enrolls.
Made whole again, Blythe is filled with hope and a renewed sense of purpose. But when it becomes apparent that those outfitted with the robotic parts now possess super-human abilities, fear spreads across the nation. The Bionics are forced to go into hiding, outcast from all society. In desperation, they band together to form an underground rebellion, and Blythe finds herself caught in a confusing tug-of-war between two of her fellow soldiers—Gage Bronson, the mysterious new addition to the Resistance, and Dax Janner, her best friend. But with war on the horizon and a death sentence hanging over her, Blythe hardly has time to worry about her feelings…
The Bionics Series is perfect for readers who enjoy futuristic science fiction, dystopian novels, science fiction romance, and genetic engineering science fiction. Filled with action and adventure, this series will appeal to fans of The Gender Game series by Bella Forest and Secondborn by Amy A. Bartol.
Novels in The Bionics series include:
The Revolution (Available January 8, 2018)
Bionics is a good read.
The Good - The pace of this book is great, there's action and a good storyline to follow. The characters are passionate, brave and volatile. Can't wait to read the next book.
The Not so Good - 4010 seems like a stretch. Hovercrafts and bionic technology could take off in 100 years or sooner. Also not changing the slang or attitudes of this century makes it harder to suspend the reader's belief. I'm also questioning how important race would be in the yr 4010.
This book turned out to be a great mix of sci-Fi, humanity, mixed with a group of post nuclear humans put back together by their governments own wish to try to make up for their part in the holocaust only to start being run by those who then decide that these part human part machines are now to be stripped of their newly given independence and dignity and they start rounding them up and people start disappearing. The story starts with the introduction of some of these poor suffering humans on the run and never stops. Keeps you holding on wanting for what's next. Can't wait to read part 2.
Great writer and great book. No one is truly all bad or all good and lots of surprises.
Recognized lots of similarities existing now in 2017. Fictional is posable. Nicely done, off to read book two.
