One of the last books I read in 2016 and it didn’t disappoint.
It follows the story of a teenage boy, Max, who feels he is going crazy because he starts hallucinating the end of the world. However, when he finds out that three other people are going through the same things as him, things change. They’re different and are being hunted down by the military. Every step they take now will decide their fate and humanity’s.
It’s a very quick and fast paced novel, with some beautifully developed characters and a plot that took unexpected turns. I wasn’t very engrossed in the beginning but soon I was invested in the adventurous storyline.
At some points the story turned cliche but it didn’t take away the fun and even though it’s only 161 kindle pages, the story doesn’t feel rushed. Each aspect of the plot fit together at the right time and keeps you flipping through the pages. It’s an interesting read for sure.
Seventeen-year-old Max has always felt like an outsider. When the agonizing apocalyptic visions begin, he decides suicide is his only escape. He soon finds himself in an institution under the guidance of a therapist who sees something exceptional in him. Just as he begins to leave the hallucinations behind, Max discovers the visions weren’t just in his head.
There are three others who have shared those same thoughts and they’ve been searching for Max. Like him, they are something more than human. Each of them possesses certain abilities, which they’re going to need when a covert military group begins hunting them down.
As the danger escalates, Max doesn’t know which side to trust. But in the end, his choice will decide the fate of both species.
Lots of love,
