Anomaly: A Review
Anomaly by Krista McGee
Number 1# in the Anomaly series.
Thalli has fifteen minutes and twenty-three seconds left to live. The toxic gas that will complete her annihilation is invading her bloodstream. But she is not afraid.
Decades before Thalli’s birth, the world ended in a nuclear war. But life went on deep underground, thanks to a handful of scientists known as The Ten. Since then, they have genetically engineered humans to be free from emotions in the hopes that war won’t threaten their lives again.
But Thalli was born with the ability to feel emotions and a sense of curiosity she can barely contain. She has survived so far thanks to her ability to hide those differences. But Thalli’s secret is discovered when she is overwhelmed by the emotion in an ancient piece of music.
She is quickly scheduled for annihilation, but her childhood friend, Berk, convinces The Ten to postpone her death and study her instead. While in the scientists’ Pod, Thalli and Berk form a dangerous alliance, one strictly forbidden by the constant surveillance in the pods.
As her life ticks away, she hears rumors of someone called the Designer—someone even more powerful than The Ten. What’s more, the parts of her that have always been an anomaly could in fact be part of a much larger plan. And the parts of her that she has always guarded could be the answer she’s been looking for all along.
Thalli must sort out what to believe and who she can trust, before her time runs out…
How do I even start this review. This book was so up and down for me. I was so excited to read this book. Not a lot of christian science fiction has come out that sounds really interesting. I must say the plot sounds like its done time and time again. A whole civilization is now living underground from the apocalypse. I’ve heard it before, but Krista McGee gave it a really cool twist. Everyone who lives underground has no emotion.
Except for certain people of course. I thought the book was a little lengthy where nothing happens in between. I’m pretty sure the setting was supposed to by where Thalli had to go through these things time and time again, but it ended up getting kind of boring. I did like the characters, they were different from each other. And they didn't get on my nerves, which is good. Over all this book was excited and I’m glad I read it. I'm kind of excited for the sequel next year.
I have received this book for my review from Booksneeze. (Booksneeze.com)
