Inhuman | Kat Falls | Fetch #1 | Sept 24 2013 |
In a world ravaged by mutation, a teenage girl must travel into the forbidden Savage Zone to recover lost artifacts or her father’s life is forfeit.
America has been ravaged by a war that has left the eastern half of the country riddled with mutation. Many of the people there exhibit varying degrees of animal traits. Even the plantlife has gone feral.
Crossing from west to east is supposed to be forbidden, but sometimes it’s necessary. Some enter the Savage Zone to provide humanitarian relief. Sixteen-year-old Lane’s father goes there to retrieve lost artifacts—he is a Fetch. It’s a dangerous life, but rewarding—until he’s caught.
Desperate to save her father, Lane agrees to complete his latest job. That means leaving behind her life of comfort and risking life and limb—and her very DNA—in the Savage Zone. But she’s not alone. In order to complete her objective, Lane strikes a deal with handsome, roguish Rafe. In exchange for his help as a guide, Lane is supposed to sneak him back west. But though Rafe doesn’t exhibit any signs of “manimal” mutation, he’s hardly civilized . . . and he may not be trustworthy.
*my thoughts* **Spoilers**
5 star rating.
I actually loved this book more than i thought i would!
It was unpredictable. Fast-moving - without missing any vital parts. I could connect with the characters. The action was awesome. The creativity in animal appearances was hella cool. So overall i freakin loved it!
"To protect the population, you have to stop seeing the people.."
So the heroine - Lane - is given a choice, find her father & get him to do a "fetch" or else he dies. Should be easy, right?
Whoops! I forgot to mention in-order to find her father Lane has to venture over the wall into the "Savage Zone".. which also inhabits mutated people with animal traits.
Back it up.. History 101.
America is split in two - West & East.
East being the mutated part.
West being the..un-mutated part lol
Hence there being a wall dividing the two.
Also hence it being unnecessary and might i add forbidden to cross the wall.
But i mean, why would any humna being wanna go to a disaster zone & leave the luxuries of the west?
Oh. right. To fetch shit for money. *smh*
So can you see where Lane might feel confused, angry, hurt and all the inbetween when she finds out her dad has been going over the wall.. regularly.
