Starters, #1

Although parts of the story were predictable don't let that stop you from reading this amazing dystopian. I would have to say that it has hints of Cinderella as well as a little romance, and a whole lot of running for your life!!

This plot/story was so complex but simple. It was never dull and it just makes you want to read more!! This is definitely a series that I am so happy to have book two Enders due out Jan. 7th. Because if I had to wait for it I would be crying.

Lissa Price is definitely a favorite author after this one. The plot of Starters starts where a war has broken out and of course it turned chemical. So they vaccinated the very young and the very old just like they normally do with things like the flu. So then when the spore hit they killed off anyone that was aged 20-50, give or take. Starters will leave you asking for more! I do hope that she adds to this Duo-logy as I would love a prequel.

Book Blurb for Starters

A riveting sci-fi dystopic thriller and series launch from the author of ENDERS.

Callie lost her parents when the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. She and her little brother, Tyler, go on the run, living as squatters with their friend Michael and fighting off renegades who would kill them for a cookie.

Callie’s only hope is Prime Destinations, a disturbing place in Beverly Hills run by a mysterious figure known as the Old Man. He hires teens to rent their bodies to Enders—seniors who want to be young again. Callie, desperate for the money that will keep her, Tyler, and Michael alive, agrees to be a donor. But the neurochip they place in Callie’s head malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her renter.

Callie soon discovers that her renter intends to do more than party—and that Prime Destinations’ plans are more evil than she could ever have imagined. . . .

Includes Portrait of a Spore, a never-before-published short story that takes place in the world of STARTERS.
