Humans decided to create a species to fight our wars for us. But they did their job way too well and started killing humans. After that these Superiors took over the world. The few surviving humans have become abused, tortured, pets, and much worse. This story is told in two parts. The first is the present day with Tilly. She is a human that was adopted by General Joseph Knight. Charlotte, his daughter has taken a shine to Tilly and taught her to read and think for herself.
The second part is told from Johnny, the son’s eyes. This starts more in the past so we can understand the evolution of the Superiors and his love for Tilly. He knows he is not supposed to care for Tilly he realizes that he has fallen in love with her. There is a revolution coming between the humans and the Superiors and it is going to have both Tilly and Johnny leading it.
This is an amazing read. The few remaining humans are treated like many people treat animals in the world today. Some are pets, some try to help them, but mainly they are abused, made to fight and much worse. But there is always someone that will go that extra step to help those in need and that is what Charlotte does with Tilly. She gives her a fighting chance to change the world. It has also shown Johnny that there is more to the humans than the opinions of most Superiors. Although it was heart wrenching, I couldn’t help but cheer for Tilly and Johnny.
I admit that it took me a little to get down the different viewpoints since Johnny’s is from earlier than Tilly’s but once I did I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. This is a stand-alone story so there will be no waiting for a year for the next book to come out. I don’t know what I would have done if I had to wait.
This is a great dystopian thriller that any age will enjoy. I will be looking for more books by Jessica Frances. She is one amazing author!
