I liked the uniqueness of this book it’s something different. The cover is beautiful and draws you in but the story keeps you entertained and interested. I liked the characters they are well written and you feel a connection to them. I would definitely recommend and will be buying it for my teen sister for Christmas

Immortality is a scary concept to me, I don’t know if I’d want that, I enjoyed how the scifi elements worked in this novel. It had a great premise that makes you think about what medical science can do. I enjoyed the way the characters were written and how strong they were. Lynn Watson does a great job in keeping me invested and glad I got to read this.
