      I received a copy via netgalley and the publisher.Excuse any graphic language I may use in this review.Holy shit This was seriously intense and filled with action The pace of it was so amped up that I felt like I had a action movie in my head on fastforward.It was exciting, the whole powers thing that the characters got from this drug Truthfully though this story reminded me of the movie Push, the tv show Misfits, and the movie Chronicle all rolled into one Which is pretty epic since I found the [...]

      If I was only allowed one word to describe Altered it would be WOW This debut book by author Marnee Blake has completely blown me away Action, adventure and mystery are always a plus in my book However, when you toss it in a SciFi romance genre, heck yeah I am one very happy camper After a night of suddenly and inexplicably being violently ill, Blue wakes up to find everybody in her small town dead Searching to find answers, she comes across a stranger in her town Is he the reason everyone is de [...]

      Damn So different than what I expected, but in a very good way Mysterious illness Military contractors Super powers Romance Basically, this book has everything a sci fi romance lover could want And then some It moves fast and hits hard Almost a week later, and I m still thinking about this story If you ve been searching for New Adult stories outside the confines of contemporary romance, I highly suggest Altered.

    8. Shay J on said:

      Altered was not at all what I was expecting based of the synopsis, which can be a good thing if it surprises you and you end up enjoying it however in this case it just didn t work for me The plot was too fast paced, I know, I knowwhat your thinking Too fast paced Is there such a thing Yes.When authors don t give at least a little birth to develop the setting characters I just end up disconnected The book practically opened with them getting powers, this can work on occasion if the rest of the [...]

    9. Elaine on said:

      Well, that was one heck of a surprise This is an enthralling, all action, riveting and brilliantly written story superb The relationships between the survivors, how they relate, their worries, fears and expectations are portrayed in an easy to relate to manner, helping readers understand the turmoil and shock they re feeling as well As they continue to be hunted down, they explore their new capabilities and develop their relationships with each other They are somewhat reminiscent of very human X [...]

    10. Sophia Henry on said:

      The tagline of this novel is When normal ends, survival begins Yeah, no s t ALTERED was an intense book with action and twists around every corner We re dropped into the action immediately which I LOVE, because I m bored my pages and pages of backstory set up The eerie tone hooked me from the start, as I love a great sci fi book, especially one with an apocalyptic vibe I loved Seth and Blue I loved their chemistry I m usually a skim over sex scenes kind of reader, so I wasn t disappointed in spo [...]

    11. Tink Magoo is bad at reviews on said:

      This book took me completely by surprise with how much I actually enjoyed it Right from the start it was fast paced, action packed and the characters were likeable I kind of expected this to be a bit of a fluff read but it was so much than that It reminded me of the film Chronicle a little bit, with the new powers, the nosebleeds etc.I wasn t even bothered that there was NO SEX and that is saying something for me There was enough chemistry and romance along with all the suspense This has set ev [...]

    14. Christy on said:

      I think this book or at least this series, when the story is actually concluded would make a kick ass movie A small town becomes ill suddenly and catastrophically The only survivors are five young adults, who each find that they now have powers they didn t before Thankfully, one of those five is soldier Seth, because pretty soon, people want to kill them They don t know why, but it s his training and abilities that help them get out of there They each have serious trust issues and of course are [...]

    15. Douglas Meeks on said:

      Beware, unless you enjoy books that leave you with cliffhanger type endings.This was a decent story, people who have been altered by a drug and have to learn to cope Sadly the writing just kept me mad most of the time and the lack of revenge on people who needed it badly was even worse.The fact that the author leads you on a merry chase and frustrating scenes and boring repetitive looks into the minds of our 2 main characters just means that I read a really good story with no ending about people [...]

      Blue woke up one morning in her small town to find that almost everyone in it was dead Seth was a stranger in town but also survived The two of them met while searching for survivors and discovered they had developed superpowers Someone was after them and didn t want them to be found The romance was the best part of the story, which was a huge part of it Seth and Blue developed feelings quickly but didn t trust each other right away It had an instalove vibe but it didn t bother me much They took [...]

      I like the premise of this book, but it didn t work for me I needed a lot detail about things And the romance fell flat.Review to come

    19. Christi Snow on said:

      My Review This was a book I picked up for review when my schedule was already packed simply because I could not resist the story description It sounded so good Luckily I was not disappointed This book was really good At first glance, this looks like a typical dystopian story, but it isn t In fact it s of a military suspense because everything that happened in this story only happened to one small town, Glory ColoradoBlue s home Seth just happened to be passing through before heading to his elit [...]

    20. Erin Burns on said:

      I received an ARC of this book from the Publisher, via Netgalley, this does not affect my opinion of this book or the content of my review.Post apocalyptic dystopian is my catnip, and it didn t look like a series, and I figured with one U.S Army Specialist Set Campbell how YA NA could it actually be But yeah, turns out I read the blurb poorly and this only affects one town, and it is indeed a series, and the answer to that last question is VERY.But once I got over my misconceptions, I enjoyed it [...]

    21. Julie Mulhern on said:

      Charming Not the word I d usually associate with NA, but this book was charming.Blue and Seth are tough and honest and face incredible challenges Good thing they re practically super heroes.I loved the sci fi aspects of this book and can t wait for the next installment.

    22. Elizabeth Neal on said:

      This was my first book by Marnee and the premise completely intrigued me I knew I had to read it and am very glad I did The premise, while frightening because we all know shady things happen all the time, was very unique Yes, I was sad so many had to die due to one person s evilness and eagerness to play with people s lives, yet, with everything they experienced and will continue to experience, you have to wonder which group of people were the luckiest.Blueberry, aka Blue yes, her nickname quick [...]

    23. Penny on said:

      3 I m still not sure StarsWell, this was one of those books that you can t quite decide if you liked it or not I found the basic plotline interesting with a bunch of people being affected by a strange virus and when they re done puking their guts out they have super powers, I mean, that would totally rock minus the puking of course.But the thing is, this was a very young New Adult book, as in Blue our heroine is 19 and Seth the hot military guy is 23 Putting that aside, the story centered primar [...]

    24. Melanie on said:

      This story took me by surprise I was not expecting it to turn out to be as good as it did and I am so glad I read this one Once I started it, I did not want to put it down until I was done Great read and so well written Blue is a young lady that is a waitress and is living with her grandmother in order to be able to take care of her One night when Blue gets off work she is suddenly taken ill and tries to stay away from her grandmother in order to not get her sick with what Blue thinks is a virus [...]
