For fans of The Hunger Games, Battlestar Galactica, and Blade Runner comes the first book in the Partials Sequence, a fast-paced, action-packed, and riveting sci-fi teen series, by acclaimed author Dan Wells.
Humanity is all but extinguished after a war with Partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island. But sixteen-year-old Kira is determined to find a solution. As she tries desperately to save what is left of her race, she discovers that that the survival of both humans and Partials rests in her attempts to answer questions about the war's origin that she never knew to ask.
Playing on our curiosity of and fascination with the complete collapse of civilization, Partials is, at its heart, a story of survival, one that explores the individual narratives and complex relationships of those left behind, both humans and Partials alike—and of the way in which the concept of what is right and wrong in this world is greatly dependent on one's own point of view.

I thought it was great. I could not stop reading this and I am about to look and see if there us a sequel..
Partial at its basis has a very interesting; though not original idea about how the devastation of war and sn advance virus has put the survival of the humanity in jeopardy. Nevertheless the story picked up slowly and I wad only towards part two that things started picking up. A few twists and turns were unexpected but others were predictable. Its a good read for the price and I'm still intrigued as to where the story will go.in.the sequel.
