To be a Deviant which are humans with powerful and usually dangerous abilities He was thrown out of the domed city of Haven and perished in the hands of the Shredders psychotic creatures that enjoy torturing and killing humans Since then Glory has been taking care of her brother in secret Because after the death of their parents Glory and Drake have discovered that they are Deviants as well And Deviants aren t welcomed in HavenWith its fast pace and intriguing setting Deviants was a book I found myself easily getting sucked into The story was uniue yet familiar at the same time For instance the people in charge of Haven aren t that different from other authority figures found in most post apocalyptic novels They are strict controlling and keeping many secrets from the citizens But I think that s to be expected in a world that was nearly destroyed What stood out for me in this book was the world outside Haven The Deviants and Shredders and how they came to be I can t get into much detail otherwise it would be a spoiler but I wasn t expecting some of the things that happened and were revealed in this book It made some moments pretty shocking and excitingThen there s the main character Glory She s a determined girl who basically had to grow up uickly and become the parent to her younger brother I ike that she An English Translation of Fa Tsangs Commentary on the Awakening of Faith loves Drake and will do anything and everything to protect him I did get frustrated with her aot though She had a tendency to not trust people and jump to conclusions uickly It made sense that she would be that way considering the betrayal she felt after what her father did but there were instances where I felt she could have sought out answers first There s also some romance in this book a bit of a Gauntlet A Novel of International Intrigue love triangle involving Glory and two very different guys I m normally not a fan ofove triangles however while I think it s obvious who Glory will end up with it doesn t seem The University of Chicago Spanish English English Spanish Dictionary like it s going to be easy I m actually really curious how this one is going to work out Deviants was an adventurous and thrilling start to a new series As I mentioned before it was a fast paced read and very easy to become pulled into the story I recommend it to those who can t get enough of the post apocalyptic and dystopia genres Deviants by Maureen McGowan is not my cup of tea but it wasn t horrible Not the best way to start a review but Iike to be upfront I didn t I magnifici dieci like the book for the first half of it It is a teen girl scifi dystopia novel similar to Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi It is about the sameevel in terms of writing skills The story itself will probably appeal to teenage girls who are boy crazy but for an old guy The Happiness Secrets Of Joel Osteen like me the main character Glory reminded me of every whiny ex girlfriend I every had who wouldn tisten to a darn thing I had to sayso the first half of this novel was painful The Story The Earth has been hit by several asteroids Seashells leaving choking dust everywhere Most people die or become mutants but a few normals have survived under domes Years pass Haven is a domed city run by an evil corporation that promises to keep the workers safe if you follow the rules Otherw. Ould give anything to get rid of her uniue ability to kill with her emotions especially when Cal the boy she’s alwaysiked becomes a spy for the authorities But when her brother is discovered and she earns their father who was expunged for killing their mother is still alive she must escape the domed city that’s be.
