All Miranda wants is a normal life. She's determined to move past the horrible truth of her origin as a clone so she can enjoy time with her boyfriend, Peter, and the rest of her friends at school. But Miranda quickly learns that there's no such thing as normal - not for a girl who was raised to be a weapon. When one of her teammates turns rogue, it begins a war that puts the world in jeopardy. Now Miranda must follow her instincts - not her heart - in order to save everything she's fought so hard to keep. with the image of a terrible future seared into her mind, what will she have to sacrifice to protect the people she loves?

Dan Krokos is someone I would consider in having the ability to write something that will capture your attention. I know how I mentioned before that I am not much of a science fiction fan but when picking up Dan Krokos’s other two books, this genre became more visible in my reading pile. False Sight is a book one should not pass without taking time to explore the magnificent and mind captivating world that Dan perfectly crafted.

Plot: Action packed. Adventured packed. All around everything packed. This book encapsulated what every Sci-Fi read needs. With grabbing my attention from the beginning, to causing me to go into denial within the first thirty pages, to me tweeting the author if he wrote a part right, and finally to me finishing the book in tears. I haven’t read a book in a while that has taken a toll on me that I had to take a two day break from reading. I wasn’t sure what happened, if I missed something but I do know one thing I want the next book already. This world created is full of secrets and I feel like I know one thing is going to happen and BAM…. Something else happens instead.

Characters: Well I do know one character Dan did not like due to what happens around page thirty. Really? I felt that we were thrown sideways with the characters in the book. Things happened with them I was not expecting to happen and this is what made the story so much more captivating. Miranda I felt grew in this part and although we were able to see her humility in this book, that side of hers did not stop her from doing something that left me in tears. We were able to meet new characters that brought something different to the book and brought many questions that the book took time to answer. I felt that the events that took part in the book made the characters stronger.

Romance: I don’t want to say much on this part just because I feel like this might be the hardest part of this review to write. Sometimes we have to sacrifice the things we love and care about to do what is right. Enough said. If you want to know what I mean by this you will have to pick up the book.

Overall I feel that this book brought this series to a whole other playing field. I fell for this book and I only want more. Dan Krokos write a scientific world that shows. False Sight is truly a captivating read.

I give this book 5 bites!

    Wow, I’m curious now! I have this book, but not the first. Maybe I’ll see if the indie bookstore has a copy in when I stop by today. This sounds great, I love a book that messes with your emotions!

  2. Oh! Sounds like a fantastic book. I really need to check it out. I hate the tears, but curious about p. 30. 😀

  3. Great review Chayse! I really want to read this series. After your review, I’m just dying to read it even more. I love books that take me on a roller coaster of emotions. That, to me, is a sign of really good writing. I can’t wait to read these soon!
