12476820Goodreads Synopsis:    Humanity is all but extinguished after a war with Partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island. But sixteen-year-old Kira is determined to find a solution. As she tries desperately to save what is left of her race, she discovers that that the survival of both humans and Partials rests in her attempts to answer questions about the war's origin that she never knew to ask.

Playing on our curiosity of and fascination with the complete collapse of civilization, Partials is, at its heart, a story of survival, one that explores the individual narratives and complex relationships of those left behind, both humans and Partials alike—and of the way in which the concept of what is right and wrong in this world is greatly dependent on one's own point of view.

My Thoughts:

-    I finally read a Dan Wells book! Yay! It shouldn't have taken me this long.

-    The story is full of action and questions. Questions about human nature and how would I react to things. 

-    I enjoyed the characters. There are a lot of them, and I don't think they are all needed, but it is okay. I love Kira's curious and kind nature. She is also determined and capable to accomplish whatever she sets her mind to. I loved that. 

-    This was a great intro to the series, and I'm excited for the next books. 


  1. I've only read this one in the series and am going to have to reread it before continuing the series. I don't remember a thing but I did like it.

    1. The series is a bit slow, but the story is really good.

  2. Um, how far behind are you on your reviews? You finished this like a month ago.
