In the world of genetic mutation, Gypsy’s talent of knowing a person’s age of death is considered a failure. Her peers, the other Cavies, have powers that range from curdling a blood still in the vein to being able to overhear a conversation taking place three miles away, but when they’re taken from the sanctuary where they grew up and forced into the real world, Gypsy, with her all-but-invisible gift, is the one with the advantage.

The only one who’s safe, if the world finds out what they can do.

When the Cavies are attacked and inoculated with an unidentified virus, that illusion is shattered. Whatever was attached to the virus causes their abilities to change. Grow. In some cases, to escape their control.

Gypsy dreamed of normal high school, normal friends, a normal life, for years. Instead, the Cavies are sucked under a sea of government intrigue, weaponized genetic mutation, and crushing secrets that will reframe everything they’ve ever been told about how their "talents" came to be in the first place.

When they find out one of their own has been appropriated by the government, mistreated and forced to run dangerous missions, their desire for information becomes a pressing need. With only a series of guesses about their origins, the path to the truth becomes quickly littered with friends, enemies, and in the end, the Cavies ability to trust anyone at all.

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion**

I loved Trisha Leigh’s “The Last Year” series so I’ve been keeping tabs on her so I jumped at the chance to read the first book in her new series so here is my thoughts on it:

The book is centered on Gypsy a seventeen year old girl who has lived her whole life in a plantation with ten other kids, all of the kids have some sort of ability in Gypsy’s  case she can tell the age a person is going to die . Please don’t think this book I going to be like X-Men, yes there is a Professor but he is nothing like Professor X.

I really liked Gypsy I found her very mature for her age, funny and very loyal. I liked how she handled her transition into the real world she knew it wouldn’t be easy but she gave it her best. Another thing I loved about her was her relationship with the people she loved whether it was her friends her father or her love interest you could feel how much she cared about them, even the ones that are difficult to love. My only complaint with Gypsy is that she was too trusting, after finding out that most of your life has been a lie I would expect her to be a little more cautious with the things she believes but many times she didin0t seem to think people would lie to her.

I wasn't a big fan of the romance Jude in theory there is nothing wrong with him but I just couldn't get past the fact that he was spying on Gypsy even if it was for his dad but I agree with Gypsy that he was a very good first crusj I just don't see him as something long term.

I liked the pace of the book some people might find it a bit slow but I think it helped me to really get to know the character in a “normal” environment and deal with everyday problems; many times I barely get to know how they usually are because they are already in a life or death situation.

The book is very well written, filled with excellent characters and it definitely leaves you wanting for more, I can’t wait for the next book.
