Today I’m excited to be participating in the tour for This Mortal Coil. When I first read the synopsis, I knew exactly what I wanted to write about for my post. I love science fiction, and themes from this book reminded me of some other great sci-fi books. So today, I’m sharing some book recommendations. If you see books you love on this list, then you should definitely pick up This Mortal Coil too! And if you’ve already read it, then consider this a list of additional books you might love as well!
Title: This Mortal Coil
Author: Emily Suvada
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication date: November 7, 2017
Genres: Young Adult, Science Fiction
Catarina Agatta is a hacker. She can cripple mainframes and crash through firewalls, but that’s not what makes her special. In Cat’s world, people are implanted with technology to recode their DNA, allowing them to change their bodies in any way they want. And Cat happens to be a gene-hacking genius.
That’s no surprise, since Cat’s father is Dr. Lachlan Agatta, a legendary geneticist who may be the last hope for defeating a plague that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. But during the outbreak, Lachlan was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called Cartaxus, leaving Cat to survive the last two years on her own.
When a Cartaxus soldier, Cole, arrives with news that her father has been killed, Cat’s instincts tell her it’s just another Cartaxus lie. But Cole also brings a message: before Lachlan died, he managed to create a vaccine, and Cole needs Cat’s help to release it and save the human race.
Now Cat must decide who she can trust: The soldier with secrets of his own? The father who made her promise to hide from Cartaxus at all costs? In a world where nature itself can be rewritten, how much can she even trust herself?
