This Mortal Coil
This Mortal Coil | Emily Suvada
When a lone soldier, Cole, arrives with news of Lachlan Agatta's death, all hope seems lost for Catarina. Her father was the world's leading geneticist, and humanity's best hope of beating a devastating virus. Then, hidden beneath Cole's genehacked enhancements she finds a message of hope: Lachlan created a vaccine. Only she can find and decrypt it, if she can unravel the clues he left for her. The closer she gets, the more she finds herself at risk from Cartaxus, a shadowy organization with a stranglehold on the world's genetic tech. But it's too late to turn back. There are three billion lives at stake, two people who can save them, and one final secret that Cat must unlock. A secret that will change everything.

So this wasnt exactly what I was expecting but the concept of technology and medicine being so tightly interwoven is some Black Mirror shit that will now give me nightmares. The ending totally threw me for a loop. I always just assume the father giving warnings to his children against a corporation is ALWAYS a pure superhero without any flaws so the ending was a total PSYCH! The romance was also kinda adorable. Predictable but adorable.

In an alternate world in which people have implanted tech in their bodies, a plague has swept the earth with resultant factions forming. Cat is a hacker who is trying to help release a new vaccine. I just loved this book and it‘s twists and turns, though it was marred by a major twist near the end that has too big a plot hole to ignore. I‘ll definitely be reading the next book.

I have something like a tradition of buying books from every place I visit. This is not my first book bought from Chester because this town is one of my favourite places for walks. Today the weather was great like yesterday (around 13 degrees) and with my fiancé took a trip to this town and walked around.
I achieved nearly 8k steps! #LitsyWalkers

JoRead It took me a second to realize that not everyone talks Farenheit when it comes to temperature and I thought 13! How is that nice?! 😅 9mo

Kaye Great job ! 9mo
Hope_a @Maggie_Reads Yes, that too. In December I was in Milan with friends and I bought Da Vinci biography from there, because he is connected with Milan.

4⭐️ It has taken me awhile to write this review. I had to let the book stew. I really enjoyed it, so please don‘t take my lateness as a slight. It‘s not. This was a fabulous fun adventure.

I can not do this review justice in short form, so if you interest the long one is found on GR and LT

Think a bit Venom meets Orphan Black, by way of Hal 9000, Outbreak, and the 100. Expect exploding bodies and crazy science

Thanks @IheartYA

The reason I don‘t like book sleeves is because they only protect the book while it‘s in the sleeve. My book hugger just saved my book from a tropical punch disaster. Hopefully the fruit punch washes out, but if not oh well.

By the way @julesG I need to send you one but I have snaps to see. Later tonight after I clean carpets I‘ll take a picture and you can pick one.

Ps. If you have. pies the Limit near you and never tried it do so soon.

Wow. Wow. I‘m not sure what blows me away more about this book — the plot, or the world. This scientifically in-depth post-apocalyptic story is unlike anything I‘ve ever seen, with an exploding-people disease turning out to be — miraculously — the least of our worries. The plot hurtles towards an utterly mind-shattering conclusion at a fierce pace, with characters that dig into you, & a romance that is so much more than what it seems. ★★★★☆.

Mehso-so

YA dystopia - playing God, with DNA of course, has created a lethal virus. Cat's father found a cure, but he had to encrypt it, to protect it from the world ruling corporation that took over when the apocalypse hit. Cat is the only person who can decrypt the code. But she cannot get to the necessary lab without help. Cole, working for the large corporation, offers to help and protect Cat. Can she trust him?

The rest is pretty textbook YA dystopia

Was close to bail at 12% - another dystopia with techie stuff and an 'I am Legend' like disease - but it's getting interesting.

Loved this book about a plague that is spreading rapidly and kills everyone who breathes it, forcing people to live underground to stay safe. Catarina and her father live on the surface and are the only ones who can write the code that will develop the vaccine to save people. So many twists and turns and unexpected moments. Really explores what is means to be human/how we determine and maintain our humanity in the face of tragedy and evil. #YA

Pic from yesterday as I was racing to the end and my Gipper was hanging out with me. 😻

It was fabulous! My earlier words stand: action-packed and morally ambiguous. It leaves you with a lot to think about and I can‘t wait for the sequel. I have one tiny quibble with the romance (hid under spoil tags below).

Also, I listened to most of it on audio and the narrator was pretty good but said ✉️-ed instead of enveloped and I lost respect. 🤷🏻‍♀️

MarriedtoMrT The romance was a little too insta-love. It was somewhat explained by later reveals but still felt too rushed to me. 2y

Several Littens recommended it and I started it during my travels. Airport stress left me needing some post-apocalyptic fiction about someone else having way harder problems than mine. It is INTENSE.

Emily Suvada is the debut author that I fell in love with last year, and her book ‘This Mortal Coil‘ is what did it. Emily used to be a data scientist and she brings her extreme smarts to this science-infused dystopian and action-filled novel, which is billed as YA, but it‘s so wildly inventive and complex, I think it appeals to a wider audience. The follow-up comes out in October (with another gorgeous cover) - I can‘t wait! 🙀#ItsGottaGoGiveaway

When I met her in Portland she was very humble (and I was gushing like an idiot because I‘d been telling her I was so excited to meet her, on Twitter, forever). She was on a panel with Julie C. Dao and Fonda Lee and the three of them were all so cool and interesting. I can NOT wait for the next one and will have to read this again first...it‘s been a while! @GondorGirl One of my faves of 2017! @mrozzz READ IT ❤️👊🏼 2y

@Mommamanzi Congrats on your milestone!! And thanks for the giveaway😽
I think I have to say my top book for last year was #ThisMortalCoil (it‘s very hard to narrow down!)...
2017 was a pretty hard year so it‘s hard to choose treasured and even good moments. My most treasured moment was getting out of the city, out of TOWN, to the ocean for one solitary day/night, for the first time in 4 YRS, down to Seabrook, out by the Pacific Ocean. Divine 💚💙

Mommamanzi Thank you so much for the congrats! Last year was a rough one for me (well the last 3 months of the year). If you send me an email to nicoleorlando@Hotmail.com with your full name and address I would love to send you a little pick me up! 2y

Best book I've read in a long time. I recommend it to everyone. Nonstop action, excellent world building, and spot on character development had me interested through the entire book. I didn't want to put it down but I didn't want it to end! Explosive and engulfing!

IheartYA @BillBlume Fantastically amazing! 2y

IheartYA @BillBlume I'll back you up on that. This may just be my favorite book of 2017. I became emotionally attached. I do not think it was Emily's intention but she did it to me by accident. Haha. Seriously-if this was her debut I cannot wait to see what she does next! 2y

Just finished reading This Mortal Coil, and I freaking loved it. This YA sci-fi novel is The Walking Dead meets Jason Bourne with a touch of Daughter of Smoke & Bone. Emily Suvada‘s world-building is brilliant and challenges the reader to consider the ethical implications of being able to alter our very DNA. The pacing to this conspiracy thriller is perfectly executed. I think this book and series might well be the new Hunger Games. #youngadult

IheartYA I started this yesterday. Action from page 1! 2y
BillBlume @IheartYA without a doubt. Looking forward to seeing your review when you finish. 2y
IheartYA I'm afraid this one is going to take me longer than usual but I will try to enjoy and savor it. My daughter's birthday and my husband's first day of a new job are this week. And I have a lot of wrapping to do. I'm not going to rush This Mortal Coil. It deserves its own time. 😊 2y

While This Mortal Coil has delivered a ton of twists, it‘s just reached the big one we‘ve known was coming (I‘ve got just 80 pages left). I think the rest of the ride is going to unravel the conspiracy that‘s lurked in the background all along.

This pic shows off some of the freebies Emily Suvada gave away for those who pre-ordered. Looking forward to trying out the DNA origami. I also covered up some of the secrets she reveals in the letter.
