Flash forward 2 years on from the closing events of Ultraxenopia, that's right, 2 years have passed for Wynter and she is from the outset clearly a very different girl from the one we left at the end of book 1. Disconnected, resigned to her fate as the State’s weapon of choice. Revered and feared she is an unstoppable killing machine against anyone who chooses to take on the state. Lost in her duty, she has little of her old self left other than a niggling doubt about the reason she chose to ret ...more

Can I just say, MA Phipps is such a talented writer. What I absolutely loved about this book wasn't just the story itself, but how you could actually feel her growing as a writer. I adored Ultraxenopia but I can confidently say I loved this one even more! I loved seeing how much Wynter has grown into her character and how there were so many twists that I didn't see coming. I loved meeting all the new characters as well as digging deeper into the background of their stories. I

Two years after Wynter turned herself in to Dr. Richter and The DSD, she has become a one woman weapon of mass destruction. She is a killing machine for the State totally void of her emotions and her memories, thanks in part to her fear of Dr. Richter and the torture he inflicts upon her.

After a daring rescue attempt, Wynter is reunited with PHOENIX and her friends from the past. Wynter's memory slowly returns just as she realizes the new PHOENIX directives are frighteningly similar to

I received an eARC of this book from the author. The gifting does not influence the rating or this voluntary review, which reflects my honest opinion of this book.

Rating: 2,5 stars

Let me start this review by saying that I really should've reread the first one in this series. And also, sorry for the delay in reviewing. But to get back to the point... I really should've read Ultraxenopia before reading this arc because I could not remember a thing from before. Sloppy of me, but I was running out o
Cranky - The Book Curmudgeon
**** 5 Cranky Stars ****

Two years had passed since Wynter voluntarily returned to Dr Richter and the DSD. So much had happened to her and she’s barely recognizable as the Wynter we met in Ultraxenopia.

One glaring difference was this Wynter had full control of her abilities. Through Richter, the State had taken advantage of her powers by turning her into their very own Angel of Death. She could kill or strike anyone, anywhere with a single thought. No amount of power could stop or destroy her. Ye

Two years have passed since her willing return to the DSD, and Wynter Reeves is no longer the timid girl who only wanted to blend in. Strong, confidant, and in control of her once debilitating powers, the world trembles at her feet while news of what she’s capable of spreads like fire among the State’s enemies. As the death toll rises and Dr. Richter further warps her into a weapon of war, Wynter is forced to embrace the

After reading the first book in the Project W.A.R. series, I was hooked and couldn’t wait for the next book. “Type X” didn’t disappoint. Phipps created another intriguing installment that had me glued to the pages and guessing right up until the end.

Wynter, for me, is one of those main characters that I’m unsure to cheer for. She started out like her name—a little cold and distant with the occasional flurry. Well, in “Type X” she turned into a serious full onslaught snow storm complete with a li

Watching this author grow has been amazing to watch! I have always respected authors but getting a glimpse of how much they do is amazing! M.A. Phipps definitely deserves the title "author!"
This book was definitely a treat! It has a little bit of everything for everyone! It felt like I was right back in the DSD and the Heart because of the excellent details. Every chapter ends leaving you wanting more and of course our beloved author has our book end with a soul gripping cliff hanger. I love

"Type X", book two in the Project W.A.R. series from M.A. Phipps, improves on book one which was really well done. We pick up the story two years later with Wynter Reeves and right away it's obvious the second book is going to be a bit darker than the first. It's difficult to go into much more detail without spoiling things, so I won't. I'll just say it was great reading a bit more of the background of the characters in the story, including the city in which they live. Book two served a great pu ...more

I've been waiting for a long time for this book and it's finally here! WOW! What a powerful first chapter! I felt like I was in a Terminator Movie watching a female Arnold Schwarzenegger.
You follow Wynter on her daily life at the DSD and how Dr. Richter treats her. I would love to make that smile right off his face! Wynter is bothered by her lack of memories. She wants to remember her past, but she just can't. There are so many questions she needs answers to.

M.A. Phipps knows how to deliver a sequel! Type X has an even darker feel than the first book, which is kind of hard to believe, but really, it does. Winter is almost a completely different person, while still being completely herself. There is so much action, betrayal, and a totally badass war outfit for the leading lady! We're also given more insight into Wynter's past, which ties the whole rebellion back to her. The end, oh wow (!), I don't know if I'm incredibly mad at M.A. Phipps for puttin ...more

Set two years into the future, Wynter has become a weapon of the state under the direction of Dr. Richter. She has lost her humanity along with her memories of her time with PHOENIX. When she finds herself face to face with her past, will she regain her memories, or will her lack of humanity destroy all those whom she once cared for?

Once again I have mixed feelings on the second book written by this debut author. The world building goes much deeper this time, giving the reader a view of the hist

Type X (Project W.A.R #2) by M.A. Phipps takes place two years after book 1 ended. Wynter is not the same person she was before. The novel is flawlessly written; the authors imagination is limitless. I love that Wynter is not the meek, naïve little girl she was in book one. It’s sexy as heck when the main female character can kick some butt and look good in a tight leather outfit while doing it. Two years after Wynter turned herself in to Dr. Richter and the DSD, she has become a weapon of mass ...more

I enjoy this series so much. Things have changed since book 1. Wynter is the Big Bad, and I'm all for it. There are so many characters I want her to unleash that crazy power on, but I'm vengeful like that. But Richter really needs to suffer. So much. So very much. That creepy evil smile things he does. *shudders*

So many truths were uncovered in this book, and not all of them were good. Things were seeming pretty hopeless as this book progressed. But if anyone can find a way to make things bette

Type X is a new adult, science fiction & fantasy novel that takes place in a dystopian society. The book picks up two years after Wynter returned to the DSD at the end of book one.

Wynter has changed; she's become the State's puppet and Dr. Richter's own personal "angel of death." Wynter is sent on mission after mission, exterminating all those who oppose the State. She is both a tool and a slave, leashed by the collar around her neck--the only thing keeping her in control of the deadly power wit

*I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This did not change or affect my opinion of this book in any way.*

First of all, if you haven't read the first book in the Project W.A.R. series, Ultraxenopia, stop what you're doing and go read that.

Type X starts up 2 years after the horribly awesome events of Ultraxenopia. Along with a jump in the time line, Wynter has a new set of killer abilities (literally) and absolutely zero memory of her time before she ret

First things first: I love this series. And this is wow - for the most part! The story kicks off two years after events in Ultraxenopia - some of which Wynter still remembers, others are a mystery to her, things she senses herself repressing to protect someone or something. It’s 2064. The world is at war and Wynter is the slave super-freak, super-human machine doing the State’s bidding in usurping new frontiers, scaring the bejeezus out of opposing armies. She’s the ‘Monster’ controlled and moni ...more

I have just finished reading Type X, second in the Project W.A.R trilogy. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down.

Compelling, gripping, thrilling, intriguing, fast paced, original .. None of these adjectives can do justice to Type X. It's even better written than the first volume, Ultraxenopia. The author has learned so much since then. Language, dialogue, plot development, characterisation is superb.

I had my reservations as I began reading. In the two years that have passed since Wynter

Ultraxenopia left me longing to know more about Wynter and the daunting reality in which she exists. Now seemingly more in control of her powers and with renewed strength. She must break away from the oppressive Dr. Richter. There are two sides to a War not easily explained. Wynter must find courage to use her gift. Only fear of choosing wrong and causing more destruction hold her back. This reader is pleasantly surprised, there will be a follow up to this dystopian thriller. The story will cont ...more

Type X, picks up 2 years after the last book. It's hard to say much since I don't want to give spoilers, especially since Release Day isn't until Friday 08/19/2016! Anyway, 2 years later and Wynter is not the naive girl she used to be. She has become a weapon, brainwashed by the State and used to destroy cities and countries with a mere thought. She's like Jean Grey's Dark Pheonix, seriously, it's bad. So while Wynter is focusing on surviving and getting her Dark Phoenix on, the actual resistanc ...more

Everything you could want from a Dystopian novel...and more. This picks up two years after Utraxenopia.

She has buried all her memories but things are coming to light once again. She has been saved from the DSD but only to find out that PHOENIX is not what it once was.

When last we left our heroine, Wynter, she voluntarily gave herself up to the DSD - and the nefarious Dr. Richter - in order to save her friends in PHOENIX, the chief resistance movement to the State. Two years later, Wynter has lost almost all traces of her identity, and Dr. Richter has turned her into a WMD, using her abilities to destroy all who resist.

But the innocent, hopeful girl she once was, though submerged, is not lost. We see, feel her fighting for control over those who use her for

I was obsessed with the first book of the series. Wynter Reeves was my favorite character of the year. Now I'm reading the sequel and tears were coming because oh boy did I miss her. She is just such a strong character that it is hard not to bond with her.

This story picks up two years later. Wynter is with Dr Richter and he uses her to the fullest of her abilities. When introduced it is not the same Wynter. She is has been cold and distant because Dr Richter turned her into a monster. She doesn

I received an arc copy of this book free in exchange for a honest review. I read the first book in the series Ultraxenopia and fell in love. I fell in love with not only the characters and the story but also with this author and her writing style. This is her first series, her first sequel, yet her work reads as though she has been writing and publishing book she whole life.
For fans of the first book, you will not be disappointed. This book is darker then the first but somehow even better. Wynt

To be honest I didn’t expeced this to be the sequel. It is not that I didn’t like it, quite the opposite actually, but I expected something different.
I found the beginning quite slow, but the story became more intense chapter by chapter. Once you start you can’t stop yourself from wanting to know what happens in the next chapter.
I liked how it was focussed on Wynter and her regaining of the memories she willingly repressed, to save the people she cared about. However I can’t say I liked her, I f

Star Rating - ****

This instalment of the series picks up two years after the previous book left off. Wynter has returned to the DSD and is being used - as they intended her to be - as a weapon that carries out their dirty work for them.

It's difficult to give anything more away regarding the plot without giving spoilers to this book, so I will leave it there. For those of you who haven't read the first instalment in a while, I would recommend a quick re-read, as I did find myself needing to go ba

Wynter is still strong, fierce and well written.

It started off so intriguing and different than the first one and I was drawn in right away. My heart just broke for Wynter and everything that the poor girl went through and endured. Some parts I just couldn’t put down and then other parts I felt like I was trying to rush through. Amazing story that leaves you begging for the next one.
