Inhuman by Kat Falls (Mini Review)

** I got this e-ARC from Scholastic via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, thank you!

Inhuman (Fetch #1)
by Kat Falls

13517617In a world ravaged by mutation, a teenage girl must travel into the forbidden Savage Zone to recover lost artifacts or her father’s life is forfeit.

America has been ravaged by a war that has left the eastern half of the country riddled with mutation. Many of the people there exhibit varying degrees of animal traits. Even the plantlife has gone feral.

Crossing from west to east is supposed to be forbidden, but sometimes it’s necessary. Some enter the Savage Zone to provide humanitarian relief. Sixteen-year-old Lane’s father goes there to retrieve lost artifacts—he is a Fetch. It’s a dangerous life, but rewarding—until he’s caught.

Desperate to save her father, Lane agrees to complete his latest job. That means leaving behind her life of comfort and risking life and limb—and her very DNA—in the Savage Zone. But she’s not alone. In order to complete her objective, Lane strikes a deal with handsome, roguish Rafe. In exchange for his help as a guide, Lane is supposed to sneak him back west. But though Rafe doesn’t exhibit any signs of “manimal” mutation, he’s hardly civilized . . . and he may not be trustworthy

My Thoughts:

(Mini Review)

I'm a huge lover of dystopian and this is one I was really excited to get a chance to read. The story line is certainly unique and intriguing and overall I enjoyed this book. 

At first, I thought I wasn't going to get much into it...I honestly don't know why, there was nothing wrong with it, maybe it was just me, but I quickly found myself very caught up in everything that was happening with Lane, Rafe, and Everson. Lane was an awesome YA heroine who could really hold her own; Rafe was your "bad-boy", outcast who you just couldn't help but love; and Everson was your "good guy" strong soldier. There is definitely what looks like a love triangle...but you won't get any complaints from me because it was done right! Team Rafe by the way ;-)

 There was AMAZING world building, I really felt like I was there with them. The whole dystopian spin was something definitely new and different that I have not seen even remotely done before. The ending is one that will leave you wanting more ASAP. I definitely added this to my list of books to buy in hardcover...because I mean come you see that cover? 

My Rating:


  1. I'm really into the whole Dystopian scene and this cover is so great! Like that you liked it!
