The Lovereading4Kids comment
Cillian is a teen prodigy whose world is overturned when he survives a terror attack on a train in which all the other passengers - including his dad - were killed. The question is, why did Cillian survive? Shortly after the attack, the mysterious, invincible Tess tracks him down and together they embark on a dangerous journey that sees them uncover shocking truths about the sinister extremes science is being taken to at the hands of the P8 scientists.
The short, sharp, blasts of action and powerful precision storytelling will keep readers turning the pages at breakneck speed, while also stimulating deeper thought about big issues around scientific, social and personal ethics. ~ Joanne Owen
