Partials by Dan Wells
Review by Anna, Sonoma Valley Branch

Partials by Dan Wells is a futuristic novel set in 2076, and more than 99% of the human population has been wiped out from a highly infectious virus.  The virus was created by the Partials, an evil super human army of fighting machines that act, look, and talk like a human.  The people that did survive, however, have a big problem:  none of their babies survive, because of the virus.  Kira and a small group of her friends decide to travel to Manhattan, where the Partials are hidden.  If anyone knows how to rid the world of that virus, it'll be the Partials.

I really liked this book, which is surprising because I usually don't like books set in the future.  I thought it was well written, and had a few interesting turns in the plot that I didn't see coming.  I would recommend this book to anyone, but especially people who like futuristic novels or sci-fi.
