This review is from: Exogene: A Subterrene War Novel (Paperback)
Having really enjoyed the first novel of the trilogy - Germline, I have to say I was similarly impressed with Exogene. Germline for me was an excellent read and got 5 stars, Exogene told from the perspective of a germline soldier Catherine was again a book I rate very highly.
Catherine's story goes from initial training, to war against the Russians, escape into the hands of the Russians and a momentous journey to Thailand.
The surroundings are bleak & grim, the tech descriptions and violent battle scenes are excellent.
Its not difficult to empathize with Catherine even though she is a genetic with a short live span and her story is disturbing, interesting and impossible to put down.
She decides she does not want to die when her two year life span has expired and questions everything - her religion, the orders she receives and the expectations that she is to give up and die because her two years are up.
She wants to escape the war and kills a lot of people in the process with little or no remorse.
Looking forward to the third book in the series, Chimera, which is due out later this summer.
