From the beginning, it starts out with a bang. A car hits a little boy and his mother is more upset about the driver's insurance than the fact that her son is mangled underneath a car. That opening scene got my attention, and my curiosity of what will happen next kept me interested. The whole concept of the book was so interesting. It’s a world where all humans are immortal and killing is considered a sport that people partake in regularly. It’s like the purge but on a regular basis.
At the center of this world, you have Ava, the main character whose whole world turns upside down on the night of her Implosion, a ceremony to celebrate her first death, when her brother dies before her eyes and doesn’t come back to life. Before she knows it, she’s running for her life and trying to escape the grasp of those who want to do tests on her to find out whether she’s a mortal too and of course the usual suspects, those who want to kill her. This book has a blend of dystopian threads, futuristic science and tech, and just the right amount of romance that doesn’t overtake large part of the story, Fear My Mortality is sure to capture fans who like books with dystopian themes, who like face paced books with a great combination of action, suspense and curiosity.
