This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada is the 100th book I have read this year and it was a great book to choice for book 100.
This Mortal Coil introduces us into world where DNA can now be controlled by technology. In a world with so much technology, the only thing that technology can’t fix is a virus called Hydra. This is a virus that destroys human body which ends up blowing the body up and spreading the virus even more. Cat is a gene hacker father is a genius in DNA coding, he was taken by force by Cartaxus to create a DNA code to cure the Hyrda virus. He made Cat promise to stay away from Cartaxus, he doesn’t trust them after the took control of the world from the Governments after the Virus spread. Two years after the outbreak Cat has done what she must to survive, but when a Cartaxus Solider comes and find Cat her world is turned upside down. Cole the Cartaxus solider has come to tell Cat that her father has died just after creating a cure for the Hyrda vaccine, and she is the only person that can break the code. Now Cat has to decide who she can and can not trust in hopes of saving the world.
I was captivated by the story, and the world that has created by Emily. The world that Emily has created is such an interesting one, the level of technology is amazing and not going to lie I would love to have those tech abilities. Although it is scary on how people become to rely on it so quickly and lose the old ways of doing things (Which is true even in are world). As in this book people are healed by tech and not by doctors knowing medicine.
I loved Cat as a character and found her incredible interesting, in the way that her mind works and her ability to stay alive in incredible difficult situation. I also found her and Cole’s ‘relationship’ very fun it was my favourite paring in the book.
This book also raised the question what would you do to survive? Would you kill? Would you team up with an enemy? Would you give up your freedom?
This book is a brilliant dystopian thriller for anyone that is a fan of books and show like The Walking Dead, Flashfall, Hunger Games just to name a few. I always think a good sign of a book for me if it plays like a movie in my head as I read it, and this book was my own mental movie.
This is one of my favourite books of the year and my favourite ARC book that I received at YALC. I can not wait to read the next book.
