The Fractured: Maggie: A Blemished Novella (Blemished Series) by Sarah Dalton

Résumé :

In a fractured Britain, the Genetic Enhancement Ministry have taken control. Parents buy designer babies and those with genetic faults are labelled Blemished and shunned from society.

Margaret Murgatroyd failed in her mission to capture three Blemished escapees. She fears the Ministry will demote her to full-time teacher and remove her Ministry rights. But Margaret is surprised as she’s given a new opportunity with new responsibilities, the only problem are old memories it brings up. Margaret remembers herself as a young girl, Maggie Powell, and the mistakes she made as a young lab technician working at the Genetic Enhancement Ministry as it first embarked on its take-over of Britain. She remembers the mistakes she made, the people who betrayed her and the way it shaped her as a woman.

The Fractured is the first part of a spin off series based on The Blemished, which will focus on some of the secondary characters and their stories. Part two follows the life of Margaret as she remembers the heartbreaking events of her past.

Mon avis :

J'ai adoré cette deuxième partie L'auteure nous raconte ce qui s'est passé dans la vie de Margaret dis Maggie Powell et elle nous entraîne dans l'univers des Blemished avec brio. A la fin de cette nouvelle, elle va se retrouvé dans une situation ou elle va devoir faire un choix.

My mind :

I'm very enjoy this novella, the author told us what happened Margaret's life past say Magie Powell and she talks about Blemished with brio. At the end of this novella Maggie gonna find in a situation where she needs to make a choice.

The Fractured: Elena: A Blemished Novella (Blemished Series) by Sarah Dalton

Résumé :

In a fractured Britain, the Genetic Enhancement Ministry have taken control. Parents buy designer babies and those with genetic faults are labelled Blemished and shunned from society.

Elena Darcey is just as perfect as the other clones, but there is something different about Elena, because she’s in trouble. After helping Area 14’s most famous criminals escape, Elena has to get out before her teacher-- the formidable Margaret Murgatroyd --finds out that she is a sympathiser for the Blemished. The perfect opportunity arises as a beauty pageant promises the winner a trip to London. Will Elena cope with the cut-throat world of a beauty pageant filled with sabotage, violence and betrayal? If she makes it to London, will she find the safe haven she craves? Does she discover more than she'd expected after meeting the mysterious Jake Bloom?

The Fractured is the first part of a spin off series based on The Blemished, which will focus on some of the secondary characters and their stories. Part one follows the life of Elena as she experiences a life changing event.

Mon avis :

J'ai adoré cette nouvelle. Je suis un fan de cette auteure. J'en ai appris beaucoup sur Elena qui est le personnage principale de celle-ci. Selon des rueurs elle aurait les gènes d'une actrice célèbre. Les blemished selon moi seraient bien des clônes. Elena va participer au concours Miss Area 14 et va le remporté pour aller passer un séjour à Londres tout en étant filmée. Elle va apprendre que dans la ville il y a des bombes, ce qui ne la rassure pas du tout. A la fin on apprend qu'elle veux détruire de l'intérieur le minsitère de la majoration génétique : le GEM et qu'elle fait partie de la resistance.

My mind :

I like this novella, i'm a fan about this author. I learn a lot of this main character Elena. About rumors she will have genes from a famous actress. In my mind the blemished will be clones. She participate to a competition Miss Area 14 and she's gonna win to chance to go to London but the cameras will be here to follow her. She learnt in London there are bombs she's worried. At the end of the novella we learnt that she want to destroyed from the inside the Genetic Enhancement Ministry ans she was in the resistance. I'm in a hurry to begin to read the follow.

Breaking #3 : Breaking ties : Tracy Puckett

Résumé

Breaking up is hard to do, and it seems that the Parkers are learning that lesson the hard way. Mandy has broken her official tie to the Raddick Initiative, Bailey’s declared war on her friends and family, and even their father is amidst an emotional crisis. And when a ghost from their past suddenly comes calling, both of the sisters must face the emotions, questions, and truths they’ve kept buried for so long.

Mandy knows that forgiveness and redemption are the keys to moving forward and living a happy life, but she struggles with letting go of the pain she’s carried for four long years. Jones, Georgia, and Fletcher offer a distraction. Gabe is desperate to help. But Mandy insists on deflecting, knowing all along that she can’t avoid the real issue forever; she has to decide once and for all: can she finally find the courage to let go of her past, or is she doomed to live the rest of her life with an unforgiving heart?

My mind :

In this last book from the trilogie breaking, Mandy and Gabe are always here, she left the Raddick Initiative, so break the rules. A ghost from the past sisters gonna be comes calling. I do not appreciate this last book.

Mon avis :

Dans ce dernier tome de cette trilogie, on y retrouve Mandy et Gabe qui sont toujours ensemble. Elle va quitter la Raddick Initiative et briser les règles qu'on lui avait inculquées. Un fantôme du passé des deux sœur va resurgir et tout chambouler. Je n'ai pas particulièrement aimé ce dernier tome, j'ai préféré les deux précédents.
