The bottom line: The sequel to the bestseller Archetype, Prototype doesn't disappoint--readers who love Emma will love this action-packed, thrilling installment! Wonderful!
This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Emma Burke is back. On the heels of the next book--a year and a half--she struggles to find her identity, her family, and a safe place to rest. But when she is drawn back into Tucker's world in an attempt to take down the government, she finds that the demons she was running from are making another appearance.. And if she doesn't figure out what to do soon, getting away from Declan, his company, and her doctors will be the least of her worries..
What I enjoyed:
-I loved the pacing--as with the first novel, I was sucked in immediately and couldn't put it down
-I loved Emma even more in the last book in this duology--her devotion to her loved ones, even fiercer than before, drives her to survive and attempt to gain a life of her own--I really enjoyed her character development
-Noah, the young man trying to move on after losing his wife and Emma, but is irresistibly drawn to her regardless
-The deep, complex, and sexually-charged relationship between Noah and Emma
-Declan, the crazed man who is hiding even more secrets than even Emma knows, who is obsessed with her and will stop at nothing to own her once more
-Foster, Emma's best friend who stands by her through everything--even when secrets abounded that could rock the foundation of his friendship with her
-Leigh and Miles
-The government also took on a deeper, more frightening turn in this novel
-I loved the ending--it did all the characters justice and I was really happy with it
What could've been better:
-I didn't really like Sonya very much in this installment of the series
-At times Emma and Noah's relationship issues took center stage rather than the issue of shutting Burke Enterprises down
Overall, I really enjoyed Prototype--this whole series is one not to be missed. Next on deck: Golden Girl by Sarah Zettel!
