“You’ve had an atypical memory, one where you commit a Class A felony. According to FuMA law, I have to arrest you.”
I was looking forward to this book and OMG did it deliver or what! The whole concept of the messages from your future self and what the society would do to make sure those futures came true was mind blowing!
Callie introduces us to this world where everything is being determined from the messages each person receives on their seventeenth birthday. Life is pretty easy since people only have to follow what their future self sends them; for example, if you see yourself as a winning athlete or the President, people just go with it and they prepare you for that one moment. To meet the vision from the future. Or so it seems.
In the off chance you see yourself as a criminal, like in Callie’s case; things get messy. On purpose. It was truly fascinating watching this society depending purely on the individual visions from the future and doing everything they could, good and bad (and sometimes really, really bad, like disturbingly bad) things in order to make sure that the future is being “achieved” and there are no consequences from preventing a crime.
Callie is always looking out for her younger sister Jessa. When she gets her vision of killing her sister, she get’s locked up like they do for future felons. Without spoiling it I have to say I liked the concept of it, the heroine being in prison and not able to act of anything until later when Logan, the mysterious guy that keeps popping up saves her and I do have a theory about it I don’t know if I want to be proven right or not but I really liked the continuation. There was a hint of a love story but the fast pacing of the plot and the twists didn’t leave much room for it and I’m glad it wasn’t forced, here’s hoping for a badass character driven story that doesn’t need a love triangle.
It did have a bit of a plot whole, I wanted a little more scientific back up instead of the I did this and then this happened because that’s what happens when you do that, it would have made the story more solid. Still, good word build and fascinating characters, looking forward to this series!
