Thalli has known since she was a little girl that she is different than everyone else in her world; she feels things: loyalty, curiosity, longing, grief, friendship and most of all, intense passion in her music. Emotions have no place in this new world though, created by scientists after nuclear war destroyed the Earth, save for a few remnants living far beneath the surface under the mountains. After years of guarding and hiding her emotions, the scientists have found out that she is an anomaly, and she has been sentenced to annihilation.
While time ticks down, she forms a dangerous alliance with her childhood friend, Berk, now a scientist for the State, and they work to find a way for her to live. During this time, she learns of the true Designer, and that He has a greater purpose for her life. Will she discover what that purpose is before time runs out? Will she figure out who to trust and who to believe before it’s too late?
If you are looking for the next fast-paced, hook-you-immediately futuristic dystopian novel, then Anomaly by Krista McGee is it. I was hooked from the very first page, and this incredible book kept me guessing about what is true reality and what is horrific virtual reality. I could hardly put the book down once I started and was gripped to the very last sentence with the story and the plot.
If you are into science fiction, dystopian stories and/or fast-paced page-turning books that keep you guessing and wanting more, than this novel is for you. I highly recommend it and can’t wait to read more from this author.
