This book blew my mind because it was so well-written that I couldn't find anything I didn't like about it. The science fiction part of the book wasn't so strong because it only focused on the medical advancement, so I think those who don't like reading sci-fi might still enjoy the book.
What I liked most of the book was the storyline. I'm one of those who can't resist a good thriller so suspenseful that makes the hearts pounding fast. With the book, I enjoyed the feelings I only get when I read great mystery thriller books. Each plot was well-planned out that everything fell into place brilliantly in the end. The smooth and flowing wording made the book even better; it helped with the pacing and also kept me interested the whole way through.
I couldn't help loving the characters. Harper was probably not one of those butt-kicking fierce heroine, still she managed not to be all girlie and annoying. I liked how she responded to the whole mess she was in. To not spoil the book for anyone who might read this, let's just say the other characters were also well-crafted.
The romance was probably not what I should have liked, but I didn't mind that much. Overall, it wasn't bad or anything. However, it moved a little too fast for in my opinion.
In short, I really loved this book. It was a fast-paced thriller with amazing characters and mind-blowing storyline.
