Product Description

Product Description

They left her alone for 17 years. Now they want her back. 
Seventeen-year-old Samantha has a great life. She's dating the hottest guy in school and she just got accepted at Stanford. But her world's turned upside-down when she discovers she's part of a top secret genetics experiment run by a global corporation. They've been watching her for years, waiting for the right time to take her back. That time is now.

She goes on the run, only to find another person just like her. He's been living in hiding for years and now that Samantha's found him, she's put both their lives in danger. But they can't run for long. Something embedded in their genes ensures that if the corporation can't have them, nobody will.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sci-fi Dream 7 Nov 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a Sci Fi lovers dream it had everything. I love the characters they are all very well written and realistic, the story is set in modern day so that helps with the overall believablity
The start of the story is a little slow for me but once it picked up I couldn't put it down. Action filled the pages with romance intertwined with genetic mutations.
I love the chemistry between Sam and Erik.

3.0 out of 5 stars 16 year old's review 9 July 2014
By sanaz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the idea for this book, however the main character was very unlikable and made strange decisions that I didn't understand. Most of the characters were unrealistic or exaggerated. I did like the scientific aspects of the book, though at times it got complicated and I had to re-read parts. The quality of writing was poor in some parts and was lacking in descriptions. I think younger readers would find this book more enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining End 15 Jun 2013
By clarinetto14 - Published on
I received a free copy of the book for an honest review.

So last night when I finished this I immediately wanted to give it four stars, but this morning when I tried to write this review, I kept remembering the beginning of the book and I couldn't rationalize four stars. The last half of this book was amazing, action-packed, and honestly deserved five stars, but the first half was slow, repetitive, and contained information that was not needed to further the plot. If you can get through the first half of the book, then it is definitely worth reading because of its unique plot. Also I loved the chemistry between Erik and Sam later on in the story.

I'm definitely going to get a copy of the next book in the series because we were left with quite a cliff hanger. I also can't wait to find out what happens between Colin, Sam, and Erik. I dearly hope the author doesn't make this into one of those impossible love triangles. I would recommend this book, but warn future readers that the end is worth the wait in the beginning.

1.0 out of 5 stars not a stand alone 27 Mar 2014

This is not a stand alone book. It leaves you hanging at the end. It is slow and rambling. It could have been a good book but the author seemed to go to sleep after about the first fourth of the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Waste of Time 3 May 2013
By Diana McPeak - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a free copy of this book from the author through Goodreads We ♥ YA Books! group in exchange for an unbiased review.
The first bit of this book is about beautiful, smart, perfect Sam, Sam's perfect parents, Sam's perfect boyfriend, Sam's perfect best friend, Sam's perfect life (except, of course, for the prerequisite nasty cheerleader). Then her parents are killed in a car accident, so the rest of the first half is about Sam's grieving process: minute details about weeks of grieving, of which most of her time is spent sleeping. Boring as hell! I Almost gave up at 23%, then again at 30% and yet again at 50%. But I'm not a quitter and I had agreed to review as per the conditions above. So I persevered.
Luckily after that it picked up a bit - and that's the only reason that this isn't a one-star review. The writing is technically fine, but completely lacking in subtlety. The characters are trite and lifeless. There is absolutely no action until after halfway through the book. Some of it is just plain implausible, main plot theme aside. The worst part? After all the frustration of reading The Samantha Project, it turns out to be a trilogy :-( I am happy to give up my time to give honest feedback to new authors, but I think some writers will give out a free book just so you'll buy the rest to find out how the story ends. Sorry, I'm not even close to interested.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring first half then it gets better. Not what I was expecting. 18 May 2013
By thegreatshoppingplace - Published on
I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. I received it as an ebook.

I had such high hopes for this book, it just sounded interesting for the description and the cover looks intriguing. The problem is that the first half of the book is sooooooooo boring. It goes on about Samantha's oh so perfect everything in her life, in which for me is not how at her age life would normally be, so that was too far fetched. It did not seem to me to make the book interesting to hear how perfect everything for her is, I feel it discredits the writing and the rest of the book.

Then her parents die and the rest of the boring first half is about her basically being sad about that and I just felt it kept dragging on and normally if I was not reading this book for an honest review, I would have stopped reading it a lot earlier.

The second half is so much better as she goes to the cabin and gets kidnapped. At this point the book gets really good. If the first half was better thought out and had some excitement to it as the second half did, I would have given it 4 stars, maybe five. I just can not tolerate or have the patience to sit there through half of this book being bored, but I agreed to read the entire book, so I did.

There maybe people out there who do not mind a book that is slow then picks up after a while. I just feel that even through the first half, the main character, Samantha, was the character that I did not like in the book. I like all the others much better, I think because they were developed more in the writing. The character Samantha was not developed that much into who she really was, except for perfect everything. If a book does not develop the main character in the book, and then does develop everyone else, it just does not seem that thought out by the author very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect combo of mystery and romance 12 Dec 2012
By Love2Read - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although there's a ton of intrigue to keep my interest in this book, I was really taken by the romantic twists and turns between Samantha, Colin, and Erik. The love triangle reminds me of Bella, Edward, and Jacob, and I can't wait until the next book in the series to see in which direction Sam's heart leads her!
