Animal Graph Review

Animal Graph by M.Black

Animal GraphIt isn’t enough that the world as we know it has ended after a nuclear war. Now the beauty of the Amazon Jungle has become part of a heinous nightmare where prisoners, incarcerated for simply trying to survive in a world where the masses are yoked to their leaders become lab rats for horrendous experiments. 

Human prisoners have become the hosts for animal cell and neural tissue grafting. These humans have also been connected by brain waves to chosen animals. When two prisoners escape into the jungle, their new abilities come to life in an effort to escape detection and find freedom. Jin and Adan must combine their talents and learn to trust one another in a desperate quest to survive in a world gone mad. 

M.Black’s ANIMAL GRAPH is more than a dystopian tale from the creative genius of this author’s mind. It raises the question of survival of the fittest, of living in harmony and questioning what if the odds are artificially stacked against these new creations. As new senses come online, new abilities are discovered and evil is on their heels, will they learn that only the strong will survive, but will they find who the strong really are? 

A thought-provoking read, told quickly and in a manner that leaves so much open for discovery. These characters were just beginning to flower as this tale ended. 

I received this copy from Eloquent Enraptures Publishing.

Animal Graph review!





My review


Jin escapes from a prison where she was experimented on to have animal cells and neural tissue grafted into her.  This gives her a range of   unique abilities including a connection by brain waves to a chosen animal.  She has to try and survive out in the Amazonian jungle of an eradicated world whilst being tracked by Graft Soldiers.  The book follows her escape as she learns more about the world and herself.
I don’t read many YA books as I find the style a bit too simplistic for my normal tastes but I was drawn to this one by the fun premise of animal grafting.  Before getting the book I read a review that said it was like the Hunger Games meets X-men and I wholeheartedly agree with this description. Its fun escapism fantasy. The characters have extraordinary abilities from their animal Graphs but these also come with weaknesses. Its a really good balance. The science in the book such as the grafting with animals is glossed over but this just adds to the easy read factor along with the simplistic language used.  The science wasn’t detailed enough for me but I still really enjoyed the book and think it works well for teen fiction.  There’s lots of fun fight scenes where the characters use their awesome abilities with interesting effects.  The book ends mid-air which to me left it feeling very unfinished. I like most ends tied up in a story and I felt that this was just setting up for a sequel.
The main character Jin is likeable and I got behind her, egging her on to defeat the next obstacle in her escape. Adan fits into the stero-typical dreamy supporting character/love interest for the heroine to fall for that I’ve seen previously in young adult books.
A really fun, quick and easy read but if you want to know how things end you would also need to read the next book in the series.
I’d recommend if you like: young adult fiction, super-hero abilities, eco-sci-fi, young adult dystopia.
