ARC Spotlight - LINKED by Imogen Howson


 
Linked

 

Elissa used to have it all: looks, popularity, and a bright future. But for the last three years, she’s been struggling with terrifying visions, phantom pains, and mysterious bruises that appear out of nowhere.

Finally, she’s promised a cure: minor surgery to burn out the overactive area of her brain. But on the eve of the procedure, she discovers the shocking truth behind her hallucinations: she’s been seeing the world through another girl’s eyes.

Elissa follows her visions, and finds a battered, broken girl on the run. A girl—Lin—who looks exactly like Elissa, down to the matching bruises. The twin sister she never knew existed.

Now, Elissa and Lin are on the run from a government who will stop at nothing to reclaim Lin and protect the dangerous secrets she could expose—secrets that would shake the very foundation of their world

I love me some YA sci-fi, and this was had everything a geek girl like me could want! Futuristic? Check. Space ships? Check.  Kick-ass heroine? Double Check. The world-building was fantastic, I loved the back-story that Howson wove throughout. The pacing was great, propelling you through the pages. I liked how LINKED had not one, but two characters that grew throughout the story. The plot twists and turns will keep you hooked. I also liked the bigger issues the book addresses. It will get you thinking about personal freedom and individual duty.

LINKED is now available for pre-order and releases June 11th.

  1. I just got approved for this book on Edelweiss! I am so excited to read it. The cover is one of my favorites so far this year. Any book that mentions a kick-ass heroine automatically has me sold!
