In this breathless story of impossible love, perfection comes at a deadly cost.
For Davis Morrow, perfection is a daily reality. Like all Priors, Davis has spent her whole life primed to be smarter, stronger, and more graceful than the lowly Imperfects, or "Imps." A fiercely ambitious ballerina, Davis is only a few weeks away from qualifying for the Olympiads and finally living up to her mother's legacy when she meets Cole, a mysterious boy who leaves her with more questions each time he disappears.
Davis has no idea that Cole has his own agenda, or that he's a rising star in the FEUDS, an underground fighting ring where Priors gamble on Imps. Cole has every reason to hate Davis--her father's campaign hinges on the total segregation of the Imps and Priors--but despite his best efforts, Cole finds himself as drawn to Davis as she is to him.
Then Narxis, a deadly virus, takes its hold--and Davis's friends start dying. When the Priors refuse to acknowledge the epidemic, Davis has no one to turn to but Cole. Falling in love was never part of their plan, but their love may be the only thing that can save her world...in Avery Hastings's Feuds.
My Review: Finally got to this book and well, it wasn't what I hoped. The book had a good plot idea, but it wasn't executed well. The story was slow, the details weren't really there.
Besides that, Davis and Cole were good characters. I'd love it if I got more insight on them, it would have helped getting to know them better. I did like all the technology going on though. Very high tech and cool. There were a few things I wish we actually had today.
But other than that, I couldn't really get far into the book, before I just knew it wasn't going to be the best read for me.
