I want to thank Jaidis and Stephanie for letting me be a part of this tour. You guys rock!!! <3
Like most girls Lily can’t wait to turn 18, but she only wants to turn 18 so she doesn’t have to visit her dad in England. All she has to do is make it through the summer and she’ll be done with her dad and her ever demanding grandmother. Unfortunately trouble has a way of finding Lily. She thinks it will be fun to look at what her father is doing all day, she doesn’t expect to find prototype 78. Since the moment she spots him she knows she can’t let it go. Why is he down there? Why is her father experimenting on him?
Lily will learn all that and more, what she doesn’t expect she will have to choose between love and family.
The book starts out creepy but then mellows out when we meet Lily. It’s the typically teenage stuff, parties and all that. The good stuff arrives when she gets to London. I don’t know how she survived all those years with the way her grandmother treats her. I would just be broken. I can’t handle people being mean to me. (I’m soft hearted) You know by reading the summary of the book that is going to be emotional and you know that everything isn’t going to work out. But when does anything happen the way you want it to. Anyway like I said there was always a sense of doom in the air, like everything is about to hit the fan in any moment. It made me extremely nervous to continue. I didn’t want anything bad to happen to the characters. I had all these different scenarios in my head and not all of them were good. I like how Stephanie keeps you guessing till the end. That’s the best part about a book never knowing where is is going to lead. If you know what’s going to happen, where is the fun in that? Now let’s get to the Science that was in the book. It only mentions a few terms and thankfully I knew what they meant. (YAY) I was never overwhelmed with any information. The relationship with Lily and prototype 78 seemed a little rushed but at the same time I thought it was just right. I can’t say much without given stuff away so I’ll leave it at that. I’m sort I’m all over the place but back to the experiments. I can’t imagine all the experiment her dad has performed. I would never be able to look at him again. In his mind it is justified because he thinks he is doing the world a favor. UHHH NO!! Why would you get yourself mixed up with that? I just can’t wait to see what all happens in the next one because the ending was a bit abrupt. Not that is was bad, I just wanted MORE. I will definitely be getting the next one!!!!
The cover and title couldn’t be more perfect for this book. I love both of them. :D
Overall: This is kinda like a futuristic Romeo and Juliet, with Juliet being human and Romeo being not robot but not entirely human.
Lily is a shy and reclusive girl. She doesn’t like to be the center of attention but she doesn’t like to be alone. She realizes that her dad will never meet her expectations. She’s sad but she accepts it. She also knows her relationship with prototype 78 will never last yet she can’t help but hope. I think she keeps a leveled head (most of the time). She either goes big or goes home.
Prototype 78: Yes he gets a name in the book but I’m not going to spoil it. I don’t want to say a lot about him because I want you all to experience what I did, what he did. There were moments I was scared of him and the other times I loved him. He is so strong yet even he has he weaknesses.
P.s Ashley and I are totally in the acknowledgments in the end. *fangirl moment* Want to see....well you have to read the book. *evil grin*
