    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 3.5 stars. If your father was responsible for the apocalypse would you try to set it right? That's the dilemma Catarina faces when a mysterious man shows up at her cabin after a virus wiped out most of humanity, and...

    One of the best sci-fi books I've read in awhile. It's high-energy, tech-driven but well explained and something I didn't want to put down. Highly recommend ...

    This book isso damn cool. It was such a geekfest, but it also had plenty of badassery and action, with a sprinkling of romance. Yes, just a sprinkling. This is a long book, but I was pulled in right from the beginning and swept along by the action and mystery and just cool sci...

    4.5 stars Wow, this was a blast! (You know, because the Hydra virus makes you blow up and stuff? ... no? Screw you, that was funny.) This Mortal Coil was such an insane ride from start to finish. It was wild, it was gruesome, it was bloody and fantastic and bloody fantastic. You ...

    Ahhhhh..... well this seems to be a polarizing kind of book. My GR feed: "This book is my favorite/coolest sci-fi of this year/all time" Also my GR feed: "This has flat characters and a love triangle and is very slow..." What to do? Try it I guess.... So I did and I dislike virus bo...

    This book deserves a victory dance for awesomeness. But I'm actually too shocked to move right now. This Mortal Coil is mind-blowingly awesome. Prepare yourselves, I'm afraid this is going to be one of those gushing, I-just-loved-it-so-much reviews. But this book totally deserves it. ...

    Well wow this was not for me. I read a lot of books. More than, like, five okay, so this literally felt like a remix of a ton of other sci-fis to the point where I was actually giggling because it was so obvious to me what would happen. HOWEVER. That could be just me, considering...ya ...

    This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada is a refreshing new dystopia/sci-fi/post-apocalyptic story that grabbed me from the start until the very end, and left me gaspingwith the many twists and turns. What immediately grabbed me from the start and impressed me was the writing style. Fr...

    I really enjoyed this one. This Mortal Coil is basically a dystopian/post apocalyptic/science fiction mixture. Our main character is a girl called Catarina who, when the book starts, lives alone. The world she lives in is two years into an epidemic of Hydra - a virus that has spread...

    4.5 stars Excellent. I loved the worldbuilding with all the built-in tech that people have for "genehacking". It was both brilliant and scary. The story was exciting and fast-paced, and I didn't see the ending coming. I'm absolutely in for the next book. ...

    This was a recommendation for me by my local bookseller to promote an aussie author. A scifi YA premise with a post apocalyptic theme. There were things I liked: the concept was original and fun, the action scenes quite intense and the tech explanations not too over the top ( I guess b...

    Actual rating 4.5 stars. I have read a slew of post-apocalyptic novels in which a deadly virus has wreaked havoc and culled the majority of our species. What ordinarily happens is that a portion of humanity devolves into zombie-like creatures, another into opportunistic gangs, and a...

    DNF at 50% I picked this up because I wanted some quick, fast paced YA sci-fi fun. This... didn't quite pan out. A lot of the conceptual elements of this were SO COOL. The technology was really interesting, the virus was very cool (there was a nice little homage to the terrifying co...

    3.5* A world where a disease has taken over and people have tech installed in their bodies. It's fast paced, action packed, heavy on romance, and decently entertaining. Cool and unique world. I want to make it clear that it's DECENTLY ENTERTAINING and that there are a ton of books t...
