This novel thrilled me to no end. From scenes where scientists were caught in their biohazard matches (where I felt claustrophobic) to the beauty of the solitary desert, I was along for the ride. The novel had me entranced from begin to complete.
The theme of altering human DNA additionally comes up, providing an interesting conflict and opposing forces from the project. This furthermore introduces an ethical conflict in the novel, that is only another layer the novel presents without becoming too complicated.
There were instances when I felt details got a small “typical” or where decisions and actions became predictable. The pairing of characters was a small apparent, but it didn’t remove from my total enjoyment of the novel.
Plus, the ending was not what I was expecting. Although sometimes the novel was a bit predictable, total it kept me guessing.
