Title: The Unadjusted
Author: Marisa Noelle
Genre: Young Adult, Dystopia, SciFi
Sixteen-year-old Silver Melody lives in a world where 80% of the population has modified their DNA. Known as the altereds, those people now possess enhancements like wings, tails, and increased strength or intelligence. Although Silver’s parents created the nanite pill used to deliver these genetic modifications, Silver is proud of her unadjusted state.
However, when the president declares all unadjusteds must take a nanite, Silver has no choice but to flee the city with her father and some friends to prevent the extinction of the unadjusteds.
With Silver’s mother in prison for treason, Silver’s father is the unadjusteds’ only hope at finding a cure.
But time is running out as Silver’s father is captured by the president’s almost immortal army. Vicious hellhounds are on Silver’s trail, and her only chance to recover her father involves teaming up with a new group of unlikely friends before all humanity is lost.
The Unadjusted is not a book that I would normally pick up off the shelf, however I am very glad that I got to take part in this blog tour.
One of the main things I enjoyed most about The Unadjusted was the mix of science fiction and fantasy that was managed to be included within a dystopia setting. I loved the way that this book just seemed to be a little quirky and different, it included fantasy creatures but they were not your typical magic creatures. I think this gave the novel a little bit of an edge which made me want to read on. This and the plot of the book just had me hooked. You are not only reading about the different mutations of the ‘creatures’ but also you get to attach an emotional connection to the characters as you are finding out what is effecting them in the background.
As always I want to reduce the amount of spoilers in my reviews but I feel that it is important to note that for someone who is not the biggest sci-fi fan this book is one I could feel myself picking up again and re-reading as it was so easy to get into. The characters and the story have great development without making it too complicated to read. It is very well written in this sense.
I found that The Unadjusted was an easy read, the author writes the story so well that it makes it very easy to read it in a short time period. Due to this I feel this would be an amazing book for those who may not read a lot of books of this genre but want to get into reading them. Or for those who enjoy this genre but never seem to have the time to read them.
I have not read anything by Marisa Noelle before but I know this will not be the last time I turn to pick up on of her works.
Does this sound like a book you would enjoy?
