Inhuman by Kat Falls
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was such a great story! Full of adventure, mystery, and surprises, Inhuman is a definite must read.
Lane grew up in the West and, like most people under the age of 19, has never seen what is on the other side of the wall that separates them from the East. Having lived a relatively sheltered life in the West, she and her friends have only heard stories of the feral territory of the East where the Ferae virus, which turns humans into feral human-animal hybrids, is still very much active after wiping out 40% of the world's population 19 years before. Lane's life is pretty simplistic, friends, school, survival classes her father insists on, until the day when the guards comes for her, insisting she has had contact with someone who may have been infected with the virus. In a few short seconds Lane's life is turned inside out and she has no choice but to enter the savage zone of the east to find out the truth. What she finds there makes her question everything she ever thought she knew and realize she really did not know much at all.
While there is somewhat of a love triangle in this book (warning for you haters out there), it is integrated into the story really well and is not the main part of the story – rather a fun aside as we followed the story along – and the romance itself is very light. One of them is sweet, one is sour, but both have redeeming qualities – even if you have to look deep to find them.
The world building for this story was fantastic, the characters were delightful, and the writing was vivid and imaginative. I am very much looking forward to more from this author and from this series.
I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
