by Dan Wells
Publisher: Blazer + Bray
Release Date: February 13, 2018
Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction
From Dan Wells, author of the New York Times bestselling Partials Sequence and the John Cleaver series, comes the third and final book in the dark, pulse-pounding, sci-fi neo-noir series that began with the acclaimed novel Bluescreen.For all the mysteries teen hacker Marisa Carneseca has solved, there has been one that has always eluded her: the truth behind the car accident in which she lost her arm and a mob boss’ wife, Zenaida de Maldonado, lost her life. Even in a world where technology exists to connect everyone’s mind to one another, it would seem that some secrets can still remain hidden.
Those secrets rise violently to the surface, however, when Zenaida de Maldonado’s freshly severed hand shows up at the scene of a gangland shooting. If Zenaida is—or was—still alive, it means there’s even more about Marisa’s past that she doesn’t know. And when she and her friends start digging, they uncover a conspiracy that runs from the slums of Los Angeles to the very top of the world’s most powerful genetic engineering firm. If Mari wants the truth, she’s going to have to go through genetically enhanced agents, irritatingly attractive mob scions, and some bad relationships to get it.
Dan Wells’s widely acclaimed series continues with his most shocking, pulse-pounding, and visionary story yet.
If you are into Science Fiction, and especially if technology and mystery intrigue you, this is quite a read! The third book in the Mirador Series follows Marisa as she (okay, WE) finally comes face to face with the one mystery that has plagued and eluded her.
The truth behind her arm and Zenaida, a mob boss’ wife, who was said to have died in a car accident with her youngest son and Marisa in the vehicle.
I noted this leaned more towards “real-life” versus the gaming world of binary and coding where Marisa is a part of a team, The Cherry Dogs, in the Overworld Games; One’s and Zeroes delved into this. While I did read Ones and Zeroes prior to Active Memory which I received for this book tour, I have not read Bluescreen. Wonderfully written for different genres: YA, SciFi, Mystery. My twin teens would (and will) enjoy these books as they are “clean”.
