Thalli has fifteen minutes and twenty-three seconds to live. The toxic gas that will complete her annihilation is invading her bloodstream. But she is not afraid.
Decades before Thalli’s birth, the world was decimated by a nuclear war. But life continued deep underground, thanks to a handful of scientists known as The Ten. There they created genetically engineered human beings who are free of emotions in the hope that war won’t threaten the world again.

Thalli is an anomaly, born with the ability to feel emotions and a sense of curiosity she can barely contain. She has survived so far by hiding her differences. But then her secret is discovered when she’s overwhelmed by the emotion of an ancient piece of music.

The Ten quickly schedule her annihilation, but her childhood friend, Berk - a scientist being groomed by The Ten - convinces them to postpone her death and study her instead. While in the Scientists’ Pod, Thalli and Berk form a dangerous alliance, one strictly forbidden by the constant surveillance.

As her life ticks a way, she hears rumors of someone called the Designer - someone even more powerful than The Ten. What’s more, the parts of her that have always been an anomaly could in fact be part of a much larger plan. And the parts of her that she has always guarded could be the answer she’s been looking for all along.

Thalli must sort out what to believe and who to trust, before her time runs out.
This book. My emotions. SERIOUSLY. I can't even begin to put into words how amazing this book is. When I first started reading it, I was a little confused, because this is a Christian book, but it is also very clearly dystopian, and I've never seen those two genres combined before. However, Krista expertly blends the two genres and the result is fantastic. The entire novel had me on the dge of my eat, and I literally did not want to put it down.

The best (or worst) part of this book? The ending! Seriously, I sat in shock for a good five minutes once I finished it. The twist is completely not what anyone would expect, and the cliffhanger ending made me want to scream! I cannot wait for the next book in the series. I most definitely recommend this book! Get your hands on it asap!

I received this book free for review through LitFuse Blog Tours. I was not required to post a positive review, simply an honest one.
