Genre: SciFi/YA

Publisher’s Description: Meteors devastated the Earth. World Governments developed plans to help surviving citizens. The United States disbanded and salvageable land was divided into four quadrants—North, South, East, and West—governed by The Remnant Council. Struggling to survive, seventeen-year-old Ava ends up in juvenile detention, until she is selected for a new life—with a catch. She must be injected with an experimental serum. The results will be life changing. The serum will make her better. To receive the serum Ava agrees to join a program controlled by ISAN, the International Sensory Assassin Network.

Review: I think I need to adjust my level of discernment in order to avoid this current deluge of YA/SciFi that keeps invading the publishing space.

Anywaaay, this was another rundown on the ol’ speshul gurl/sniffing musky men with a lot of “clenching jaws” to round it out. Every girl that is part of the assassins squad  has the hots for Rhett, Russ or Mitch. Of course all three guys want to bang 17 year old special gurl, Ava. The idea that indigent teenagers are recruited into a secret assassins group, is ridiculous but hey that’s showbiz.
