What would you sacrifice to save the one’s you love? To save the one who holds your heart? To save the world? Kenley Grayson is all too familiar with these questions. After Earth is thrust into its first intergalactic war with an unknown race called the Bringers, our military forces begin to suffer heavy losses. Desperate for a solution, the Allied Federation issues a worldwide draft for every able seventeen year old to enlist. As Kenley turns seventeen, she finds herself thrown into the very war that took her older brother’s life. This year’s draft is a little different than in the past though. A new program, known as the Magnus Project, has been introduced, and only the best and brightest qualify. Kenley is amongst a select few whom are chosen to join this elite group of soldiers, and as a part of this project, undergoes a modification procedure that leaves her and her peers endowed with powers beyond their wildest dreams. As Earth continues in its struggle against the Bringers, Kenley is transported to a high-tech training facility, the Magnus Academy, to prepare for the major battle that lies ahead. It’s here that she meets the California heartthrob, and son of a legendary war hero, Landon Shaw. As unexpected feelings toward Landon begin to develop, Kenley wonders if this is the right time or place for romance to bloom, especially when those feelings start to interfere with her training. With the weight of the world on her shoulders, Kenley is constantly reminded of how important she and the rest of the Magnus cadets are to the fate of humanity. She is one of the Modified, Earth’s last line of defense against utter destruction.The Modified is pure genius in creativity and sci-fi phenomenon.
This story is full of adventure and creative Sci-Fi imagination. Not only is it sci-fi, but also Dystopian…two of my favorite genres. Just the modification process alone is pure adrenaline. How do authors come up with incredible storylines like this? I ask myself that daily.
Kenley doesn’t see her father very often because he is a scientist, never being able to discuss his work. When the draft comes around, Kenley never imagined she would be picked, along with her best friend. All the recruits are taken to a secret facility where the modification process takes place, and then they begin their training. They were sworn to secrecy, not even families knowing what is happening to them. The recruits are the last hope for Earth in the intergalactic war with the Bringers.
Ok, that is not much of a short synopsis but I truly do not want to give out ANY spoilers to this incredible story. It was such a fun and exciting read, I am still baffled by the uniqueness of it. There is a little romance, conflict between fellow recruits, and some comical moments where I found myself laughing out loud. All qualities of a good book in my opinion. Oh, and the most important part, the twists and turns and CLIFFHANGER at the end. Yeah, doesn’t that always get you? The cliffhangers? It definitely leaves you wanting more and having anxiety for the next release!!
This book releases TODAY!!!!!
Here is a quote from the story!
“Yeah…Earth is, beautiful, isn’t it?” was all I could say.
“I guess Earth is too,” he says and grins wider, his dimples adding an extra touch. My blush deepens and I turn back around to face the window.
