Lexa is a 17 year old girl who doesn't know where she came from and was addicted to stims. She turned up at Turpin's as a ten year old girl, high on stims and doesn't remember anything from her life previously. They take her in at Turpin's and use her as a thief for their clients. When Lexa finds out something about herself after doing a job for Turpin it changes her life completely and she is left fighting for what she believes in and for the ones she loves.

It started well and it did a good job at keeping my attention for short reading stints before bed, but nothing more. I found I could take it or leave it most of the time, like it was lacking some suspense that could have made it so much better. The plot is interesting and it has a lot of action packed scenes at the beginning and the end mostly. The middle fell flat for a while and the underlying love story seemed to hold centre stage for a while and it was only after that took a back burner again that the characters really started to come alive for me and I started to get to know them more. Lexa is strong willed, good at her job and will do anything, including risking her life to stand up for what she believes in. A great protagonist that has the potential to develop well within the series.

I liked how the story progressed overall and the little surprises along the way really made the story for me as I didn't expect most of them and found myself shocked at one particular revelation in the book. The surprises really helped to increase the enjoyment I got out of the book.

The ending, for me, felt a little let down. I felt that it could have been dragged out that little bit more to increase the suspense and I felt a little let down when it ending and I never felt the big dramatic ending that I'd hoped for.

Overall a great start to the series that's left me wanting more and looking forward to the next installment in 2015.

What an excellent book! I went into this with an open mind, and the story starts around Lexa and her "job" as a 17 year old thief, and I was just thinking, "let's see where it goes", especially given the book blurb and how much I'd liked the sound of it. Well, it definitely went somewhere! It's not that it had a slow start, or that the beginning of the book wasn't good, just that it really ramps up as you go on, with new characters coming in, and involvement in a much larger plot.
There was a twist in the story that appears about halfway through, and depending on how good you are at guessing things, that might have been a surprise, but perhaps not. The second half of the book really ramps up, and I was then totally engrossed right to the end, and will definitely be on the look out for the next instalment.
I really liked how Kendra portrayed the characters, particularly the humanisation of the "artificials" which was so well done. I love the kind of book that look to the future in a "what if" manner - and while mankind haven't taken this route, so far, in terms of robotics, it's something that I, and many others, can believe to be a feasible future. So much more enjoyable than the mundane current reality...
I'll definitely be looking up Kendra's other works.

17-year-old Lexa has been a thief for about as long as she can remember, creeping through the night and stealing from the corporation that rules the city. But when she unwittingly steals schematics that turn out to describe the latest generation of artificial humans, she and her confederates are looking at serious trouble. At the centre of the story are the Bolts — engineered humans who with every iteration are becoming more and more human in their emotions, while retaining super-human levels of health and mental capacity. Unstrung is in a class above the standard dystopian adventure, using a transhumanist vision of the future to deal with hefty issues of identity, family, and acceptance. Fast-paced, but thought provoking.
