This one is on my list largely just because I loved Nevernight and Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff and I keep meaning to introduce myself to some of his other works. Of course, I clearly haven’t gotten around to it at all. Dev1at3 is the second book in a series for him, so I haven’t actually read the synopsis that I included below, however I can say that this series looks like an incredibly fun read.
Lemon Fresh has seen better days. After the climactic battle in Babel, she finds herself separated from Ezekiel and Cricket in the wastelands. Lemon’s abilities to manipulate electricity mark her as a deviate, and deadly corporate operatives are hunting her to use as a weapon in the war between BioMaas Incorporated and Daedelus Technologies. Instead, Lemon finds herself falling in with a group of fellow deviates—a band of teenagers with astonishing abilities, led by an enigmatic figure known as the Major, who may hold the secrets to Lemon’s past. Meanwhile, Cricket finds himself in possession of the puritanical Brotherhood, a religious cult set for a head-on collision with the Major and his band. Searching for Lemon, Ezekiel finds a strange ally in an old enemy, and uncovers a plot that may see him reunited with his beloved Ana. And inside Babel, a remade Eve hatches a plan to bring an end to the world.
I imagine a bunch of you have probably read this book, or at least the first novel in the series, already. If so, what did you think? Do you have a review you could link? If you’ve read more of Kristoff, do you think it compares to his other work? If you’ve not read any of it, does this sound like a book or series that you’re interested in reading? Let me know all your thoughts in the comments!
