Vika's Early Dystopian Sci-Fi Review: Prototype by M.D. Waters

Prototype (Archetype #2) by M.D. Waters

Ecopy thanks to Edelweiss

Synopsis from Goodreads

The stunning debut that began with Archetype— and has readers buzzing—concludes in Prototype, when a woman’s dual pasts lock onto a collision course, threatening her present and future.

Emma looks forward to the day when she can let go of her past—both of them. After more than a year on the run, with clues to her parents’ whereabouts within her grasp, she may finally find a place to settle down. Start a new life. Maybe even create new memories with a new family.

But the past rises to haunt her and to make sure there’s nowhere on the planet she can hide. Declan Burke wants his wife back, and with a little manipulation and a lot of reward money, he’s got the entire world on his side. Except for the one man she dreads confronting the most: Noah Tucker.

Emma returns to face what she’s done but finds that the past isn’t the problem. It’s the present—and the future it represents. Noah has moved on and another woman is raising their daughter.

In the shocking conclusion to M.D. Waters’s spectacular debut, Emma battles for her life and her freedom, tearing down walls and ripping off masks to reveal the truth. She’s decided to play their game and prove she isn’t the woman they thought she was. Even if it means she winds up dead. Or worse, reborn.

Release date: July 24th 2014.

Stunning! Having just finished the novel and still riding the sweet high of this exhilarating read the only thing I can say is that it is a must read for any sci-fi/dystopian/romance fans. The writing is great, the story – exciting, and the characters are complex and interesting.

A year after the events of Archetype, Emma is once again on the run: alone, hunted by ghosts of past and present she is determined to find her place in this sinister world. Except her luck seems to be running out each time she gets closer to her goal. Setbacks, missteps, mistakes… she might be running, but the time has come to face her demons and claim what’s rightfully hers.

Prototype is fast-paced, intense, and exhilarating; a well executed addition in this duet, which nicely wraps up Emma’s story. Having gained momentum and sufficiently established the world, the story continues to explore and develop the characters, their dilemmas as it draws to a fitting conclusion of Emma’s quest.

I absolutely loved Emma’s transformation from Archetype to Prototype, her growing determination, self-assurance, fearlessness, and will to live and to love the way she wanted and needed to. She has become a character to be admired. Alongside her, members of the resistance and Noah, as well as Declan shine through, each in their own way: Miles and Leigh offering the necessary reprieve from grim and forlorn situations; Noah and Declan contrasting each other and raising a myriad of interesting questions about the rights and the wrongs; and Emma herself, her soul, her host and her battles… An intricate balance that isn’t simply black and white.

So read it guys! Archetype and Prototype are fantastic books worthy of attention.

Highly Recommended

Восхитительно! Закончив роман, я все еще испытываю эйфорию после прочтенного и могу сказать лишь одно: этот роман должен прочесть любой фанат научной фантастики, дистопии и романтики. Роман написан отлично, история в нем волнительная и захватывающая, а герои полноценны и интересны.

Год спустя после событий Архетипа, в одиночку Эмма снова обратилась в бегство. Ее преследуют духи прошлого и настоящего, но она целеустремленно пытается найти свое место в этом зловещем мире. Но каждый раз когда она близка к цели, удача отворачивается от нее. Неудачи, ошибки, оплошности... она пытается убежать, но ей пришло время сразиться с собственными демонами, со своим я, и получить то, что по праву принадлежит ей.

Прототип - это динамичный, остросюжетный, волнующий роман, который получился отличным дополнением к дуэту, который повествует об Эмме. Мир романа к этому времени уже достаточно установлен, и поэтому роман продолжает развивать героев и их дилеммы, чтобы прийти к заключению Эмминых поисков.

Я безусловно полюбила трансформацию Эммы между Прототипом и Архетипом, ее растущую решимость, уверенность, бесстрашие, волю к жизни и любви, так как она этого хочет. Для меня герой Эммы стал почитаемым и возлюбленным. Она придает контрастности членам сопротивления - Ное и Деклану, каждому по своему. Майлс и Лей, члены сопротивления, - вносят нужную передышку от мрачных, одиноких и несчастных ситуаций. Ноя и Деклан сами по себе котрастны, оба клана задаются вопросами, о том, что такое хорошо, и что такое плохо и как они к этому относятся. Ну, и конечно же, Эмма, -  она сама, ее душа и ее собственные поединки, - это сложный баланс, который скорее оттенок серого, чем просто черно-белое...

Так-что читайте Архетип и Прототип. Это прекрасные книги, достойные вашего внимания.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
