Publisher's Summary

Eternal life is to die for....

Seventeen-year-old Zoe Vanderveen is a GAP - a genetically altered person. She lives in the security of a walled city on prime waterfront property alongside other equally beautiful people with extended life spans. Her brother, Liam, is missing.

Noah Brody is a natural who lives on the outside. He leads protests against the GAPs and detests the widening chasm they've created between those who have and those who don't. He doesn't like girls like Zoe and he has good reason not to like her specifically.

Zoe's carefree life takes a traumatic turn. She's in trouble and it turns out that Noah, the last guy on earth she should trust, is the only one who can help her.

The Perception Series books ( SF/mystery/romance) are young adult novels that take place in the not-too-distant future in a world changed by climate extremes, natural disasters, and impending wars, and where scientific breakthroughs cause class divisions - both financially and philosophically. It explores the clash between faith and science and how differences can separate us as enemies or ally us together. And in some cases, even in the midst of betrayal and personal crisis, there's room to fall in love.

    I listen to my purchased stories whilst walking my dog Molly. I'm retired so I spend a lot of time walking the coastal footpaths.

    Story
    "This is one for the girls."

    It is a good story with plenty of intrigue and excitement, but there was too many love situations that left me feeling uncomfortable. The story ends suddenly.

    Story
    "Interesting topic, but needs more balance"

    The story in this book intrigued me from the summary I read here at audible, and once I listened to the book, I believe it manages to ask ethical questions that are relevant and thought provoking. Unfortunately, I found the love story a bit overwhelming and difficult to swallow. You have this character who's completely set against genetic manipulation of the human gene, but once faced with love interest who represent all of what he's expected to hate, there's no real resistance or struggle. In that sense, I felt a bit disappointed, since the book falls short from truly developing all the drama and reflection that could have created with a little more character development, and less focus on the romance and passion that in comparison to the larger picture seems to have very little impact.

    "Truly enjoyed this book!"

    Need the next books! Refreshing twist on the average dystopia. We'll developed main characters and good narration. Looking for the next books!

    "Interesting concept"

    The story caught my interest but a little too much teenage romance for my tastes.

    Story
    "Eh..."
    Would you try another book from Lee Strauss and Elle Strauss and/or Luci Christian and Aaron Landon ?

    A lot of the book feels so monotone. I don't know if the narrator didn't connect with the story line or what but she reads so ...blah. There are too many of these: "Noah looked at me. I looked at him. We just stared at each other. Time passed by slowly."Short, non-descriptive sentences fill this whole book and the narrator doesn't bring much life to the characters. I was really intrigued by a genetically altered person type of story line. Especially after reading Dan Well's Partials and Fragments books. This book left me uninspired but it wasn't HORRIBLE. Just nothing to jump out of your seat about. Maybe if the narrator had a lil' more pep in her step! (lol)
