Blog Tour: The Unadjusteds – Marisa Noelle*

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.

My thoughts:This was a high octane YA sci-fi thriller, set in a world where nanites can embue people with strange powers and abilities – mostly derived from animal DNA.Unfortunately instead of only using this new technology for good, to cure disease and benefit humanity, greed has caused many to go too far and it has caused corruption and harm. It’s also mutated some beyond human and turned them into disturbing hybrid creatures.Silver Melody’s parents are scientists and deeply involved in this new nanite tech, but also trying to find a way to reverse it. She is unadjusted, or so she believes. With a band of fellow outsiders she plans to bring down the corrupt President and rescue her parents.This was a fun, fast paced and engaging book, I liked Silver and her friends, a group of smart, determined young people, and the plot was intriguing and enjoyable.*I was kindly gifted a copy of this book in exchange for taking part in the blog tour but all opinions remain my own.
