I have really missed our buddy reads.


Vaughn | 3470 comments Me too!! Something to look forward to.


Vaughn | 3470 comments I hope this doesn't happen in our lifetime. I don't think I could stomach it.

No kidding! The poor babies :( I don't think I could be a nurse or doctor there. I couldn't handle it.

I just started. While I enjoy reading this genre, I would never want to live in it.


Vaughn | 3470 comments Meeting Makalay ? Partials, the voice.... Wow

Love this narrator!

I wonder who is behind the Voice. The scary part is, the Partials are almost too realistic...Biochemically engineered humans?

This whole world is seriously messed up! First off, the government mandates that when a girl turns 18 they will start having children. WTH! That isn't bad enough but the child will most likely die very quickly after birth. Oh yeah... let me sign up for that...Not!!! I don't know who has it worse, the girl who just lost her baby or the nurse who has witnessed every baby die. Totally sucks!

Ugh. Nope.

Right? How do we know who is one?

Right...It's law that they have to get pregnant and be pregnant as much as possible?...No way! What's that even helping?

Not really sure I trust either faction: The Partials or the Government.

I'm not sure where you both are so...I think this is around chapter 14?? (view spoiler)

I like Kira. She's got spunk, lol. She questions everything...Which is going to get her into a lot of trouble, lol.

Poor Madison! Kira is spunky! I love that is she decides she is going to be the one to save the babies.

I knew the council was up to no good!!


Vaughn | 3470 comments Just got past the part where Kira was studying Marcus's blood. Oh boy


Vaughn | 3470 comments In part two. If the government decided I had to have children that would then die I'd fight too. Hell to the no.

On Chapter 14


Vaughn | 3470 comments So they wanted the partial but didn't ?


message 26: by Sheri, Bookworm (new) - rated it 5 stars

Sheri | 12652 comments Mod
You would think after 11 years of babies dying the benefit of capturing a Partial to study would have outweighed the risks. Or at least going off the island to see what else they could find that would help.

Vaughn wrote: "So they wanted the partial but didn't ?"

I know. Once Kira committed treason and brought back a Partial, they put her on trial with everyone else involved and her punishment was to study the Partial. WTH! I did find the comment by Samm(the Partial) "that they, the Partials, didn't create RM interesting. Is it true and if so who created it and why? I don't trust anyone at this point: Partials, Government or the Voice.


Vaughn | 3470 comments The government is up to something. I'm wondering what Kira is. Maybe the partials aren't the enemy? Still reading.


Vaughn | 3470 comments She knows it wasn't the partials. I beat it was the government.


Vaughn | 3470 comments Hell I may trust the partials more. She just questioned the partials.


Vaughn | 3470 comments Chapter 20

Yes, I think the only group to trust right now is the Partials. I don't trust the Senators at all.

The Senators are a mess! They don't even seem to want a cure as long as they have all the control.

That's what I think too

Exactly! WTH! So what if everyone dies just as long as they are on top.

Poor Jayden!!! Haru is an idiot!!! He is so willing to drink the Kool-Aid that the Senate is handing out. WOW! The Senate takes credit for everything. WTH!

I just finished up. I feel sorry for Marcus...he loves Kira. Kira is not afraid to do the hard thing. I really enjoyed this read.

I really liked this one too. It’s one of those that’s been on my to-read shelf forever, I’m glad we finally got to it. Kira needs to find answers. But I do hope her and Marcus can work things out.

Yes, she does. Now we have another faction to deal with...The Trust. This next book will be quite interesting. What new revelations will be uncovered? Who can she trust? Will she find Sam?

I do, too. They have some kind of connection. I definitely want more Sam in next book.


Vaughn | 3470 comments I'm in part 3 now. Listening during breaks and at home is working good.

I love Samm. Mixed feelings about Marcus. Wondering of the Humans and partials will she have to breed to save them both. I definitely want to read the next one.

When do y'all want to start the next one?


Vaughn | 3470 comments Just finished today. Do you have the next one?

So what do you think? How can Kira be a partial Partial? It’s got to have something to do with her dad and the Mrs. whoever she was living with. I can’t remember her name now.

I can start the next one whenever you guys are ready.

I want to know more about Kira's dad. What exactly is Kira? Do we want to start Monday? The next two books are on my shelf.

I loved it. I wondered since about halfway through of she was a partial. As well as some of the others. Can't wait to read the next
