WoW: Inhuman by Kat Falls


Inhuman by Kat Falls
Release Date: March 2013
Publisher: Scholastic

In a world ravaged by mutation, a teenage girl must travel into the forbidden Savage Zone to recover lost artifacts or her father’s life is forfeit.

America has been ravaged by a war that has left the eastern half of the country riddled with mutation. Many of the people there exhibit varying degrees of animal traits. Even the plantlife has gone feral.

Crossing from west to east is supposed to be forbidden, but sometimes it’s necessary. Some enter the Savage Zone to provide humanitarian relief. Sixteen-year-old Lane’s father goes there to retrieve lost artifacts—he is a Fetch. It’s a dangerous life, but rewarding—until he’s caught.

Desperate to save her father, Lane agrees to complete his latest job. That means leaving behind her life of comfort and risking life and limb—and her very DNA—in the Savage Zone. But she’s not alone. In order to complete her objective, Lane strikes a deal with handsome, roguish Rafe. In exchange for his help as a guide, Lane is supposed to sneak him back west. But though Rafe doesn’t exhibit any signs of “manimal” mutation, he’s hardly civilized . . . and he may not be trustworthy.

I am, to put it lightly, a total Kat Falls fangirl. I read Dark Life around this time last year and absolutely fell in love with both the world it was set in and Kat's writing style. So of course that means I'm going to have to read everything she comes out with, while crossing my fingers and toes that she will also be continuing with the Dark Life series, because those books are AWESOME. Have you read Dark Life?

  1. I will have to check out Dark Life - I've never heard of it before! I did see this as someone's WoW pick for last week though, and it sounds awesome!

    My WoW pick this week is Alice in the Sky With Diamonds by Alice M. Grey!
