For the long wait...
Which doesn't come out until 2014! How am I ever going to wait for this book!?...more
**spoiler alert** How the last book ended, I really couldn’t wait to continue the series. I’m little mad at myself for not starting the Pretty Little**spoiler alert** How the last book ended, I really couldn’t wait to continue the series. I’m little mad at myself for not starting the Pretty Little Liars series because I am in love with Sara Shepard’s writing. I love the mystery, the drama, and man, even the love interests. Now, I have only watched Pretty Little Liars and the boys on that show are really hot. And as for the Lying Game, Ethan is one of my favorite characters on the show. I found it a little hard to switch from watching the show and reading the books because the TV series are nothing like the books.
Okay onto to the review. I really, really don’t want to do spoilers but its hard not to, when you're talking about a series. For people who don’t want spoilers, this is your short little review. In the ending of Never Have I Ever, Emma gets a surprise visitor and it’s a big shocker. This book picks off right where Never Have I Ever ended, and now Emma has a new suspect on her hands, and possibly the most difficult one. Sutton has kept a secret life from her family and friends, and since Emma knows nothing, the only people who know anything is Thayer, the suspect, and Sutton, who’s dead.
And now for people who don’t mind some spoilers, please continue reading if you want.
Even though Thayer is a new suspect, from the last two books, you know that in the end, Thayer won’t be a suspect anymore. I know in Emma’s mind, Thayer does seem like an eligible suspect. He was with Sutton the day she died, and he is probably the last person she saw. He also broke in the house to see Sutton and he had a knife with him. So to any rational person, Thayer would be like a number 1 suspect.
To me though, I didn’t feel like he killed Sutton. I think this was because we get to see that Sutton and Thayer had romantic feelings towards each other. Not only that, but he didn’t really seem creepy, just a quiet guy that ran away from home. Somehow, him running away from home, marks him as the bad guy of the town.
The ending! I was disappointed...first I thought Emma should have come clean to Thayer. And second, there is no way that (view spoiler)[Laurel (hide spoiler)] did it. Yes, Sutton did something bad to her, but come on. There are other more likely suspects. I am starting to think about Ethan might be hiding something. And...
I still have my suspicions on Charlotte’s dad because first off, Emma talked to him the first day she arrived, and he’s supposed to be in Tokyo. Then, there is the second clue in the second book because he could have easily gone into Charlotte’s house without setting off the alarms. However in this book, I didn't find a single clue that would link him to the murder. The murderer is always the last guy you suspect and they are always in the background of the stories never out in the spotlight.
I have to say I can’t wait for the last book. However, I know when I do read the last book, I am going to have to force myself not to peek at the ending because I am really curious on whom Sutton’s killer really is.
My three top suspects:
1. Charlotte's Dad (clues link him to the murder) 2. Ethan (he seemed suspcious this last book) 3. Mr. Vega (I think the TV show is influencing my decision on this one)

When I read any science-fiction type book, I always visualize everything that’s happening. If I don’t picture it like a movie, I will not be able to get into the book. My mind has to be set into the book, and stay there. Everything has to be clear; the characters, the setting, and all of the wonderful scientific type things. If I can’t understand what’s going on, I have to give up on the book.
Partials did not have any problems, and it was like a movie inside a book.
If you don’t like science fiction, then hey don’t read this book. However, if you are in the mood to try something new, then you must give Partials a try. Or if you are a big science fiction fanatic, what in the world are you waiting for! Go and hurry and picked this up! It’s a must read!
At the top of the cover it says “The only hope for humanity isn’t human.”, I thought that meant the main character would be a Partial and she helps cure humans. Sometimes guesses are right, and sometimes they are wrong.
Man I feel so bad for Kira, well maybe not just Kira but for all of humanity. Kira works in the nursery room as an intern, and helps with all the newborns. The only problem is, and it’s a huge problem, the newborns do not last that long and die in a few days. That means no children, no future. In East Meadow, the Senate have created what's known as the Hope Act. A law that keeps lowering the age for young women to get pregnant but it’s never going to get better. You can have thousands of babies being born but without a cure, there are only going to be thousands of babies dead. It's heartbreaking.
You see, the humans in this world have a virus known as RM. The mothers have the disease and it's passing to the newborns. There is no cure. The scientists have tried everything, trying to find the solution, but there is no hope. When a friend of Kira’s gets pregnant, she doesn’t want to see her friend’s baby die. She seeks for the solution. And Kira figures out what the solution is. A Partial. They are the only ones who don’t have the virus.
If you watched the trailer, it gives you details on what exactly a Partial is. During a war, the Partials, which were made to protect humans and built with human DNA, turned against us. They then tried to destroy us with the RM virus. Kira knows the dangers of going on this mission and the others, that have joined her, know as well. They are all risking their lives to find the cure. To save the future of humanity.
But there are more dangers. The world we knew is crumbling and while Kira lives in a controlled area, outside there are the Partials and the Voice. The Voice are a group of rebels who are against everything East Meadow and their Senate are doing.
The first half of the book, all I wanted to see was the Voice and the Senate work out their differences so they can work together against the Partials. Then Samm comes in, a Partial that Kira captured and is supposed to study. You find out more about what the Senate has planned, and why Kira starts to believe that the Partials are willing to work with humans to create a truce. But how can you tell if the Partials are telling the truth?
Kira is caught in the middle but in her mind, all she wants is a better future.
If that doesn’t get your interest, then I don’t know what will. This is a non-stop action thriller. The characters are well written and I felt connected to them, especially Kira. There were points where I had to put the book down because I was so afraid to continue on. I didn't want to see anyone get hurt or die or in trouble for doing something they'd believed in.

I couldn’t think straight when it came to writing the review. So I waited awhile and read it again. Now, I have some thoughts.
Okay I do read a lot of dystopian and science fiction novels, because that was the genre I choose to read. I usually try to stay away from zombie novels because I usually have nightmares when I see zombie movies and thought it might be the same if I read zombie books.
What I am most worried about in zombie books is survival. I always get scared that the people I am reading about, or watching, are not going to make it to the end. These are people I connected with, in about 300 or more pages, and I definitely don’t want them to die. I definitely don’t want them to die, then come back and kill off another character. That is way too much!
This book came to me with high recommendations. I was scared to read it but lay down and took it like a woman, of course during daylight hours.
I can honestly say I connected with Sloane through so many levels. I thought I was going to be able to connect with her because she was thinking about death constantly. I know it zombies and that’s what they do, but I wanted to hear, “Okay, we can do this. We are going to make it. We are going to live.” That’s what I wanted to hear from her. We get that mostly from the other characters.
There are deaths in this novel and like I said before, I usually don’t like connecting with a character then seeing them die. It hurts too much. Some of the characters though, I got teary eyed and got over it. Not in a way where I’m like, “Eh, they dead, get over it.”. For me it was more like this, “Why!?” and “I will never forget you!”.
By the middle and towards the ending, I started to understand Sloane. She takes you through emotional ride and I could not leave her story. This is more than a zombie book. I find out Courtney Summers is a contemporary writer and you can see that writing style in this novel. If you are a big fan of her other novels, you will love this one. If you want a heartbreaking story, be prepared to have some tissues and a cuddle buddy with you.
