Overall, I liked this book a lot but I have different opinions on it. I think it would be better if the author would have put this book in different genre and increased the age of Adam and Carly. Moroever, there were some moments which made me unconfortable.
When I finished the book, they did not bother me that much and I liked it.

I loved the imaginary world created by the author, and the plot.
I disliked the first 2 chapters of the book, they seemed to be too extreme and unnecessary in an otherwise great story.

I loved this book soooo much! YA fiction and Sci-Fi is my kind of blend so it made things even better. This book was excellently written, from the plot to the setting. It was interesting in every way and I plan to finish the series soon!

I have read pretty great reviews about this book, which say Adam’s character is depicted very well.. This is a Sci-fi! Mutated human! It has everything worth reading. I assume I’ll love reading this book.

Didn't read it yet, but from what I can see it is a good book, and it helps that I'm a fan of sci-fi. Definitively earned a spot in my want to read library.

This was definitely an interesting story. I think Adam is one troubled boy. I do love the narrative in the story. The author really knows his job. It was a very entertaining book and I rated it 4 out of 4 stars. You should love young adult science fiction stories to relate with the book.

At first, I wasn't a fan of Adam's personality, especially when he completely flipped his broody attitude when he met Carly. Once the action kicked in, he grew on me. The whole gang grew on me. I ended up really enjoying the book!

I have heard that the initial part of the book is boring. For me the beginning is important and if that’s not good then it’s hard for me to continue. I hope I should like it because I really wanna read this book.

I don't usually go for young adult fiction or sci-fi, but the reviews of this book are through the roof. I'm really enjoying it so far, and if it keeps up with the current pace, it looks like I'll be able to rate it 4 out 4.

The science fiction genre is mixed beautifully with young adult love and a little garnish of mystery in this book. Our main characters were easy to understand and seeing their character development was amazing. From a troubled young boy to a responsible individual, Reign has penned down Adam perfectly. Adam’s character is intricately woven. It has so many layers and potential for even more future development. Carly’s character arc was also intertwined with Adam. Mystery elements were interlaced with the storyline wherever the character presence was lacking. Making the book a wholesome combination of young adult and suspense. Complex characters were dealt in a sensitive way with appropriate time for development. The other characters played the support team very well and the overall aspect of the book was pleasant except for a few grammatical errors which were few and far in between. None the less I would give this book 4 out of 4 stars.

I haven't had a chance to read it but I've read a lot of reviews. Adam and Carly are quite some characters.

I enjoyed the book and rate it 3 stars. I really liked Dauma's character. She's strong, wise and level headed. She's also very action-oriented, which give the descendants the direction they lack. The worst part was the death of Terry. I feel like this was never properly concluded.

The story was little strange at the beginning due to the MILF fantasy thing but later on i was not able to put it down. Absolutely loved it!

Well I really loved the book! It contained most of the things that I can ask for like romance, enemies, schemes, powers, relationship, secrets. In beginning Adam's perversion was a little difficult to digest for me as I'm not a fan of these things but later the storyline rectified/justified that theory so I was pretty happy! It was great reading this!
