Synopsis:

The future is bright for 16-year-old Ava Holland and the residents of Evereach. They don’t have to worry about old age or even getting sick. In their world, humans regenerate, heal, and live for hundreds of years. Mortality isn’t something to fear. Disease has been all but eradicated. Everything changes when Ava watches her brother die and he doesn’t regenerate. Ava’s genetics are called into question by the government, scientists, extremists, and Ava herself. Could her genes hold the answer to mortality? Is she an anomaly or something to be feared? Determined not to become anyone’s guinea pig, Ava doesn’t stick around to find out. She wants answers too, but the only person who can help her is 17-year-old Michael Bradley, the boy who killed her brother. If either of them have even the slightest chance of survival, they must find the genetic keys hidden in Ava’s DNA before it’s too late.

Quick & Dirty: Action packed adventure full of romance, suspense and an intriguing premises! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a unique dystopian read!

Opening Sentence: I never could watch anyone die.

Excerpt: No

The Review:

What would life be like if you didn’t have to worry about dying? All the citizens of Evereach knows exactly how this feels. A long time ago there was a huge war and a nuclear bomb was launched at Evereach. The aftermath should have been devastating but instead no one ended up dying. It turned out that everyone regenerated after being hurt or even after being mortally wounded. They aren’t immortal but they do live for hundreds of years. Because no one could die, fighting a war was pointless so there was a treaty drawn up between the countries, but just because they aren’t at war doesn’t mean there is peace. Things are still tense and both sides are looking for a weapon that could potentially be used to defeat the other side. That weapon is about to be discovered and it comes in the form of a sixteen year old girl.

Ava Holland is getting ready to participate in Implosion, a ritual where everyone dies. It is a rite of passage into adulthood and you are tested to see how fast you heal. Not everyone heals at the same pace and basically everyone is grouped into either the slow healers or fast healers category. Being a fast healer is ideal because you will have so many more opportunities in life. Ava has never experienced her first death and for some reason she is nervous about it. It’s dumb for her to worry since she’s going to regenerate but then the impossible happens. Her older brother is killed and he stays dead. It turns out Ava may be mortal and her blood could be the key to bringing down all of humanity. Everyone wants to use Ava as a weapon but she doesn’t like the idea of being anyone’s experiment project. The only way for her to escape is to rely on the boy who murdered her brother!

Ava was a wonderful heroine that I completely adored. She is smart, sweet, and strong. I love that even though she was considered weak compared to all the other people, she had more strength and heart then any of them combined. Yes, she is mortal and yes she can die, but that doesn’t stop her from doing the right thing even if it’s dangerous. She’s not reckless but she does take risks and I really admired that. She was a very easy character to relate to and she’s someone you can’t help but like. She has already grown a lot, but I’m excited to see where her journey takes her next.

Michael was a very swoon worthy guy that I instantly liked. He was sweet, strong, and very resilient. He is an extremely fast healer and his father was very wealthy, so it would seem that he had the world at the tip of his fingers. But instead of having a bright future he’s becomes the first murderer. His relationship with Ava was sweet and I loved watching their romance develop. They are both in a similar situation so they go through a lot together. They are one of those couples that brings out the best in the other and I really liked that.

Fear My Mortality is a fast paced adventure filled with romance, suspense, and action. It was a fairly quick read and I thought the plot line was very intriguing. The pacing was good, but I did feel like there were a few times where things seemed to lag a little bit. I think part of the reason for this is that there were a few times where it felt like the same things kept happening. I think for me it would have worked better if the situation the MC kept finding herself in would have varied a little more. But with that being said, I still really enjoyed the book and I’m excited to see where the story goes next. If you are a dystopian fan, I would give this one a try. I think you will enjoy it!

Notable Scene:

“Ava. He’s … I’ve never seen anything like this before. I think he’s…”

Dead.

“This isn’t possible. It’s not possible.” I shoved Michael, glaring into his eyes, the eyes of a monster. “You killed him.”
