Violet Storm (Modi Series #1)

Violet Storm (Modi Series #1)
by Anna Soliveres 
Publication date: March 28th 2014
Genres: Science Fiction, Young Adult

Several hundred years into the future, The Cleansing, known to some as the End of Days, forced the government to create Arks to shelter its people. When Earth became habitable again, new territories rose up from the ashes: Agria, the City of Light, and the Outer Boundaries. For a while, they lived in peace.

A brilliant surgeon known for his invention of Modi’s—the only cure for the deadly disease, vaincre—has gone rogue with his experiments, and the Monarchy is desperate to shut him down. That’s where Aeva Storm comes in, a champion athlete with an ego to match. Aeva is the surgeon’s secret weapon against the Monarchy. And they’ll never know what hit them. After reconstructing her body to become a Modi unlike any he’s ever created, Aeva is forced into a fight against all odds. She’ll have to break loyalties, hurt family, and turn her back on newly awakened love. Thousands of lives hang in the balance in a battle that will set forth a new era. Join Aeva on her quest to see whether she’s got what it takes to go up against the most powerful humans ever created.


My Thoughts: Very entertaining once all the pieces fall into place. At first I had no idea what was going on because the main character, Aeva, can't remember the last month of her life, which left me struggling to keep reading and understand what was happening!  I sometimes have a hard time getting through the book when there is so much information not revealed until later. Once you realize what happened to Aeva after the lightening strike and why she doesn't remember, the plot really picks up for me and I couldn't put the book down! Non stop action and one surprise after the next leaving Aeva struggling with her new identity and expectations in her role of over throwing the Monarchy. This is my first book focusing on people being mechanically modified to make them faster and stronger. Very interesting idea for a plot. I really loved this book once everything picks up and I knew more of what is happening to Aeva.

Anna Soliveres has always been a storyteller but it wasn’t until her early twenties when she began writing novel length works. The result was an enthusiasm to get better at the craft until her work could be shared with the world. Releasing in March 2014, VIOLET STORM is her debut novel. Anna is currently working on another young adult sci-fi series, titled SNOW DOLLS, set to release in late 2014. To learn more, please visit her at www.annasoliveres.com.
