Release date: June 25, 2019 by Knopf Books For Young Readers.

Reading the blurb at Goodreads will spoil you for book one, and we’re still a bit over two weeks out from release day, so I have to be careful about revealing too much.

If you haven’t started this series yet, the setting is a post-apocalyptic garbage dump, environmentally ruined America run by corporations. Most organic beings outside of humans are genetically-engi

I've come to the conclusion that (along with a couple of other authors) I should just set up a direct debit out of my account each month to go directly into Jay Kristoff's bank account. This would cut out the middle man and let's face it I'm going to end up buying whatever book is the new release eventually so might as well do it in installments. This is my long ass winded way of saying he is an autobuy and I can't wait for this because I loved Lifel1k3.

I really enjoyed Lemon Fresh in LifeL1k3. She was a breath of fresh air and I really hurt for her and Ezekial at the end of the first book. So I was dying to check out the sequel where our side kick takes center stage...

I think the title Dev1at3 totally suits Lemon's story and goes with the LifeL1k3 moniker quite well. I don't hate the cover design. I think in person it would probably be quite stunning in an understated sort of way. I w

DEV1AT3 is the second installment in author Jay Kristoff's LIFEL1K3 trilogy. In the wake of an uprising in a post-apocalyptic USA, the robotic populace have been reduced to slaves, and androids (robots who look like humans) have been outlawed. LIFEL1K3 was about a girl named Eve and her best friend Lemon who find a ruined android in a scrap heap; an almost-boy named Ezekiel, who knows the truth behind the robotic revolt

I... loved this book.

How am I going to wait for the third book? Especially with that ending! Or should I say... cliffhanger?


I wouldn't be able to tell you if I loved this book more than the first. They were both really good and action-packed. I was hooked from the start and I can't wait to read the finale of this trilogy. But first, let me tell you a little bit about Dev1at3.

In this book, we follow Cricket, Lemon, Ezekiel and Eve right after the events of the first one. If you're worr
I wish I had gotten to read this all in one go, but work got in the way, so alas, I am finishing it now instead of a week ago as would have been better. But just wow. I've been in quite a slump recently as all the spring and summer releases have just been mediocre. Just okay. I've wanted something amazing and haven't been getting it. And then I got this. I'm a big Jay Kristoff fan, and while I liked LIFEL1K3 and really died over the concept, I didn't love it. DEV1AT3 though. Wow. Just wow.

Kristoff treats us to the perspectives of Evie, Lemon, Zeke (Ezekiel), and Cricket. I think this worked really well, as we gained more knowledge about deviates, lifelikes, and the world. Hands down Cricket and Lemon are my favorite characters.

In this book we meet more; mostly deviates. Abraham, Grimm and Diesel are key players. I shed a few tears along the way. Kristoff tackles some big life questions and tests his characters. I love that he never takes the path of least resistance and damn it i

I was really excited to read this since I couldn't wait to know what happened next after the plot twist that ended Lifel1k3.

This book focused more on Lemon Fresh's story and we get to know more details about her. I was confused by the new characters at first since there were a lot that were introduced in this book. But after a few chapters, I was already invested in them too!

Just like in Lifel1k3, this book had great characters! The new ones were just as loveable as the old favorites! Lemon Fres

Oh Jay Kristoff, you make me want to thump your head after that ending! How am I going to wait another year to find out what happens to my girl, LemonFresh, and Cricket, and the new friends they’ve made?? Grrrrr...

Lifel1k3, book 1, was touted as “Romeo & Juliet meets Mad Max meets X-Men, with a little bit of Blade Runner cheering from the sidelines" Dev1at3 was all of the above times 3!! It felt way more Mad Max and X-Men and to top it off, sidekick Lemon starred in this book! Her and Cricke

Jay has done it again! This book was driven by my favorite character and I couldn't get enough of her and her story! I laughed, I cried, I swore... the things that are a trademark for my reading of a Jay book! It shocked me again in where this story is going and I need to know what happens in the next book!!

Thank you so much to Allen & Unwin for providing me with a copy of DEV1AT3 in exchange for an honest review.

***As this review is for book 2 in the series, there will be spoilers for the first book, LIFEL1K3 in this review!***

LIFEL1K3 was one of my absolute favourite books last year and I opened DEV1AT3 with the sort of reverence and fear that comes from hoping a sequel will live up to the first book. I should have known there was no way Jay Kristoff would ever let me down!

Thank you to the publisher for the e-ARC via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

It's no surprise that I'd love DEV1AT3. I actually think I loved it even more than the first book. While Evie was the main character in LIFEL1K3, Lemon Fresh was who the story revolves around in DEV1AT3. We learn more about what makes Lemon Fresh the person she is, more about deviates, and her specific deviation. But we also get to follow the POVs of Ezekiel, Evie, and Cricket and their stories.

This book was fantastic and somehow even better than the first..!

I received this book from the publisher at no cost to myself in exchange for an honest review.
My ARC review:
Deviate starts out right where Lifelike left off and I absolutely Love that. It made it seem like we just jumped right back into the action and for the rest of the book, it doesn't slow down at all.
Lemon Fresh and Cricket are my favorite characters so I truly enjoyed having the differing POVs in

Dev1at3 is book two in the Lifel1k3 series by Jay Kristoff and trust me…if you haven’t started reading these books you definitely need to fix that. They are a mix of sci-fi, dystopian, post-apocalyptic…and I love it! I will do my absolute best to not spoil anything here but be warned that there could be spoilers to the first book if you haven’t yet read.

This book picks up where we left off in Lifel1k3 and Kristoff ends up giving us a view into each character’s storyline by giving us chapters fro

4.5 stars!! Ok. So. Yeah. That,... just,.... when you know, from the very beginning of the book that it’s most likely going to end with a bang. So you try to read it through your fingers covering your eyes just like when watching a scary movie and you just KNOW somethings going to jump out at you?? Yeah. That.

This book was an EPIC sequel to Lifelik3. I’m not even sure how Kristoff does it m, but he creates such a vast world and weaves magic with his story telling.

So…confession time.

While I remember liking book one, I don’t actually remember much about it. Even after reading this one, very little of book one came back into my mind. It could be that I’ve just read too many books since then.


I really liked this! I loved Lemon Fresh. She’s our girl power star of this book and she’s so awesome. Cricket has a major storyline here too, and it’s wonderful and heartbreaking and…um… very robot power?

As for Ana/Eve, that was okay. I like psycho-Eve and fear that

The book begins about five hours after the last events of Lifel1k3, in which Ezekiel, Lemon and Cricket are running away from Babel Tower, leaving their friend Evie behind. Very quickly they are separated in the wastes and their individual adventures begin.

The story has different POV's which is great because I love getting to see their individual characterizations and the development without the other characters being present. Lemon Fresh is seen struggling not only with her powers but with bein
