When Julia wakes strapped to a strange bed, she’s surrounded by white. Machines beep in her ears, her head spins. One teen boy beside her, with eyes bluer than the sky.
Nothing makes sense.
Outside her room, 25 other teens train incessantly for the Institute of Genetic Enhancement and Manipulation otherwise known as the Gem Institute.
Only she didn’t sign up for this position.
No one did.
The only thing they all have in common is their unique albino blood, that mixed with the right genetic enhancements, will create a super-force against their enemy - The Republic of HOPE.
My Review: 5 STARS
I picked this up in a dystopian mood and was happily pulled along for the ride, Julia and the others are trapped and being experimented upon, and with it comes new powers, a chance to be part of something great and a little bit of romance in there for the mix. The story had me hooked from the first chapter, and reading both POV helped me get closer to both characters. I adored the ending, and can’t wait for the next book, very much a series that I want to follow. Overall, highly recommended for those who love a dystopian with a different twist.
