In contrary, I bought the book at the end of the day because I was hooked upon reading the synopsis. Faster and stronger than ordinary humans, linked to one another and highly efficient, they easily wiped them out. Kira discovers that the virus has been studied from all possible angles, except the source - the Partials who are imimune.
Mankind has been destroyed by the Partials who are genetically "engineered organic beings identical to humans". Wells portrays a world ravaged by war fought only too effectively by genetically engineered soldiers. Up until now, researchers have been studying only the babies and she feels that there is something they are missing.
The sortie is successful and Kira manages to capture a male Partial. I was first uncertain if I had to sacrifice my allowance for that week to procure an infamous novel from a disreputable author in the Young Adult world.
Partials is an exciting novel, packed with action, suspense and multiple twists in the plotline. Not just follow — I find the explanations quite interesting. Even if that means risking her life and the lives of all around her.
Since the Break, every human baby born has died from the RM virus. Because of this Samm claims that he and his company were on their way to the human settlement to offer a truce, when they were attacked. Reduced to only tens of thousands by a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island.
He was adorable and so in love with Kira. The dramatic conclusion of this novel suggests an exciting second novel in the series. The beginning feels a little slow, but by the end, elements from the beginning come into play, proving that each scene is necessary.
The Partials released the RM virus, a specially designed virus that quickly killed virtually every human being on the planet. Partials has a well described post-apocalyptic world. The scientific explanations behind RM are incredibly intricate, but for someone without much of a science background, I can definitely follow them.
Everything Dan Wells includes, he includes for a reason. In future America, a company called ParaGen created the Partials, human-like machines meant to be used as weapons. Not an easy thing to do. The thought of reading a novel with viruses, super humans, guns, and war in a post-apocalyptic plot, without babies that survived even a single day, making year old individual the youngest human on earth.
The threat of the partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to the disease in over a decade. Reduced to only tens of thousands by a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island.
First, I never heard the name of an author like Dan Wells and I am not a fan of novels with female images or protagonists on their covers because for me it looks, pardon me, cheap and uninteresting to read.
Partials is the futuristic tale of a decimated America where the only surviving humans are gathered in what was once Long Island. ParaGen designed Partials with an expiration date. Samm reveals to Kira and the Senators, that the Partials are dying off.
Then one rash decision forces Kira to flee her community with the unlikeliest of allies.

When sixteen year old medic, Kira, learns that her friends, Madison and Haru, are expecting their first child, she is determined that she will find a cure for RM. The threat of the partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to the disease in over a decade.

In future America, a company called ParaGen created the Partials, human-like machines meant to be used as weapons. Wells does a great job revealing information in a shocking way. While some of the plot twists are predictable, others are jaw dropping.
It makes for an incredibly entertaining read. That’s not to say the book is perfect—the writing can be clunky at times and the dialogue isn’t really realistic. I salute the author, Mr. Wells, for immersing me in the world of partials, where I felt the heat of the sun, the sand in my eyes, the pressure of the bullet passing, sliding through, inches away beside your head, and the fear of getting caught by a partial off guard.
