Isolation by Dan Wells

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I couldn't believe when I saw this was out! I loved the Partial book and can't wait to read more in the series so when I saw that Dan Wells had created a 0.5 Book well I snatched it right up!..lol...I finally got to it in my reading list..lol...I got to say thought I liked the book I was a little disappointed with it I was hoping for at least some connection to the Partial book would be in this but there was nothing at all but at the same time not surprising as it takes place two decades before Partial began, even though you still look for something similar to hold on to even if it is in the landscape and not the people. The story also jumps beck and forth from the present to the past which I also found confusing and the main character goes by two names, Heron and Mei at the beginning so you think they are two separate people. You soon learn however that they are the same person on different missions in two different time periods and then it gets a little easier to understand.

What I liked about this book is that you get to understand a little bit about why the Partial army took their stand and why they are at war with humans in Partial. You also get to be inside Herons mind so you get to know how she thinks and feels which is a lot different then a humans and why she is the way she is. All in all it was a ok book but I enjoyed Partial a whole lot more and can't wait for book 2!

View all my reviews

Two decades before the events of Partials, the world was locked in a different battle for survival: a global war for the last remaining oil reserves on the planet. It was for the Isolation War that the American government contracted the ParaGen Corporation to manufacture the Partials—our last hope in reclaiming energy independence from China. And it was on these fields of battle that the seeds of humanity's eventual destruction were sown.

Isolation takes us back to the front lines of this war, a time when mankind’s ambition far outstripped its foresight. Heron, a newly trained Partial soldier who specializes in infiltration, is sent on a mission deep behind enemy lines. What she discovers there has far-reaching implications—not only for the Isolation War, but for Partials and humans alike long after this war is over.

A powerful take of our world on the brink, Isolation gives readers a glimpse into the history from which Partials was born—as well as clues to where the Partials Sequence is heading next.
