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.
