Connor Laurel was always small, normal, and routine. He lived in a tiny, tight neighborhood where nothing ever happened. This was his life until he found out he had a rare disease.
Connor wasn't just frightened, he was also getting taken away from his home by strange men. He soon finds out that these men, and the place they're taking him is anything but small, normal, and routine. Finding out who he really is, what he really has changes everything and raises the stakes. If Connor wants to find understanding, he has to be patient and learn everything he can from his new home. There's only one problem -- Connor isn't sick, he has an unseen, super power.
R. K. Holliday introduces an unforgettable boy who must learn to fight, learn to fly, and defy all he knows to uncover the truth.
This is an enjoyable YA dystopian read from R.K. Holliday. It is about a 13 year old boy named Connor Laurel who had a “virus” called IMPETUS and in order to be treated, needed to be taken away from his home by “the greater coalition” to a location where he is joined with other children for treatment, scans and observations. The world seemed to be sometime in the future since there are hovering vehicles in this world. In this new place, a spacecraft called Eden is where he is told that he really does not have a virus but instead possess some supernatural abilities he is yet to discover.
I found that the book was well written especially the first half where the story was intriguing and really made me want to turn those pages. This is a great start for a YA series.
All in all, a nice enjoyable read.
