The Fearless. An army, powered by an incredible new serum that makes each soldier stronger, sharper, faster than their enemies. Intended as a force for good, the serum has a terrible side-effect – anyone who takes it is stripped of all humanity, empathy, love. And as the Fearless sweep through the country, forcing the serum on anyone in their path, society becomes a living nightmare.
Cass remembers the night they passed through her village. Her father was Altered. Her mother died soon after. All Cass has left is her little brother – and when Jori is snatched by the Fearless and taken to their hellish lair, Cass must risk everything to get him back.
As all of you know, I LOVE POST APOCALYPTIC STORIES!!!
This book was no exception to that rule! I loved the way the author created a different kind of apocalypse story!
Cass is an awesome character. I did have a few heart wrenching moments while reading this book while Cass just kept on muddling through! She was awesome by taking the initiative to care for her younger brother after she had lost her family.
I liked that we had gotten the full story in the beginning of the book and not just flashbacks from the characters. It helps the reader get the whole picture of the story.
The idea of “fearless” is very unique and not that I expect it to happen anytime in the future, it kind of actually could? I liked how the author used the idea of a serum and the fact that it stole the emotions right out of the people whom received it. This is not your typical zombie story!
I was very disappointed in the character of Sol and really did not see that coming! I actually liked him in the beginning and wanted Cass to give him a chance. For awhile, I felt like she was being such a b_itch to him. BUT, in the end, I am glad with all that went down and found myself truly adoring Myo.
The story is told in alternating POV’s which helps the reader get all different perspectives. If you love apocalyptic stories as much as I do, then you should pick this one up! Non stop action from the beginning until the end and I am hoping there may be a sequel soon!!!
