Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: November 7th 2017
Genre: Young Adult, Fiction, Science Fiction

Synopsis:

In this gripping debut novel, seventeen-year-old Cat must use her gene-hacking skills to decode her late father’s message concealing a vaccine to a horrifying plague.

Catarina Agatta is a hacker. She can cripple mainframes and crash through firewalls, but that’s not what makes her special. In Cat’s world, people are implanted with technology to recode their DNA, allowing them to change their bodies in any way they want. And Cat happens to be a gene-hacking genius.

That’s no surprise, since Cat’s father is Dr. Lachlan Agatta, a legendary geneticist who may be the last hope for defeating a plague that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. But during the outbreak, Lachlan was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called Cartaxus, leaving Cat to survive the last two years on her own.

When a Cartaxus soldier, Cole, arrives with news that her father has been killed, Cat’s instincts tell her it’s just another Cartaxus lie. But Cole also brings a message: before Lachlan died, he managed to create a vaccine, and Cole needs Cat’s help to release it and save the human race.

Now Cat must decide who she can trust: The soldier with secrets of his own? The father who made her promise to hide from Cartaxus at all costs? In a world where nature itself can be rewritten, how much can she even trust herself?


THIS BOOK! In my opinion this should be required reading for science classes because the science level in this book is beyond from what I've seen in any YA book. It's amazing. The cast of characters are so unique in each way. Cat and Cole seem to come from different worlds but they have so many similarities  And the reader "thinks" they know what's going on but in reality there are so many twists and turns that are so unexpected. I was left on the edge of my seat. This Mortal Coil is one of my favorite books in 2017 and maybe one of my favorite books ever. I love the complexity and the science behind it. I'm so glad I found this book and I wait eagerly for book 2.

Overall I would give This Mortal Coil 5 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
