– Goodreads Synopsis
Well, whilst this book is not yet out, there seems to be quite a few raving reviews of this book so far of Goodreads. I’m being promised a kick-ass hero a little like Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games) and Tris (Divergent), but with more compassion and evident weaknesses. Is this enough to convince me? Well, no. I’m going to have to read it for myself of course!
So, onto the book cover. For once, the idea of a perfect looking girl on the cover works well. She’s a robot or something, so perfection is to be expected. I love the way her face becomes fragmented, like pixels travelling through the web or something.
