Monday Book Recommendations (35): Partials Trilogy by Dan Wells

Publicado por Paulina J. en 21:30

Monday is the day I choose what new books I’m going to start reading but I have so many books in my To Read Pile that sometimes it’s hard to choose so I have decided that on Monday mornings I’ll recommend some  of  my favorite books.

Title: Partials
Series: Partials #1
Author: Dan Wells
Date Published: February 28th 2012
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
For fans of The Hunger GamesBattlestar Galactica, and Blade Runnercomes 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.



Supports the Common Core State Standards


  Title:  Fragments

Series: Partials #2 
Author:  Dan   Wells
Date Published:February 26th 2013
Publisher: Balzer + Bray

Author Dan Wells is back with the sequel to the sci-fi blockbuster Partials, which Pittacus Lore called a "thrilling sci-fi adrenaline rush, with one of the most compelling and frightening visions of Earth's future I've seen yet."
After discovering the cure for RM, Kira Walker sets off on a terrifying journey into the ruins of postapocalyptic America and the darkest desires of her heart in order to uncover the means—and a reason—for humanity's survival.
Dan Wells extends his richly imagined, gritty world and introduces new memorable characters in this second installment in the Partials Sequence. 

Title: Ruins
Series: Partials #3
Author:Dan Wells
Date Published: March 11th 2014
Publisher: Balzer + Bray

Kira, Samm, and Marcus fight to prevent a final war between Partials and humans in the gripping final installment in the Partials Sequence, a series that combines the thrilling action of The Hunger Games with the provocative themes of Blade Runner and The Stand.There is no avoiding it—the war to decide the fate of both humans and Partials is at hand. Both sides hold in their possession a weapon that could destroy the other, and Kira Walker has precious little time to prevent that from happening. She has one chance to save both species and the world with them, but it will only come at great personal cost.





To be honest with you guys, I don't really like this series I only read the first two books and the third one I DNF at 25% BUT I also believe that just because I didn't like something that doesn't mean someone else won't love it, so feel free to give Partials a chance.
