 “It’s nothing personal. You’re just part of the transaction.”

Cameron Briggs always wondered what the strange birthmark on his shoulder meant. For his entire life, it seemed he was never meant to be anything special, that is, until the day it happened. Something dormant inside of him awoke.

In the near future, birthright theft is on the rise, a vast network of dealers offering desperate buyers the chance to steal a more desirable next life. Their power and influence is absolute, with little standing in their way. However, unexpected anomalies in the process endow unique abilities to their victims who, once identified, are offered one chance – to save our world or destroy it, one Unborn child at a time.

With the truth shrouded in conspiracy, Emma Jennings, a troubled but strong-minded young agent with a defiant reputation, is determined to prove these crimes exist. But in order to accomplish her goal, she’ll need to find the one victim who can turn the tide of her war.

My thoughts:

Okay, it’s my first time to read in an e-book format. No kidding. Don’t judge me. I only read this because I just felt like it.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It’s an action-packed sci-fi book that will make you turn its pages. The writing style was easy to get into, and I didn’t realize that I could like a book like this.

It could have been better if Unborn and Benefactor were thoroughly explained throughout the book. I just felt some points lacking and didn’t understand the parts, and it felt like the book was bouncing from one place to another without a concrete and informative description.

This is what love is like for the wealthy. It only lasts until bad times, or something better comes along.

Cameron Briggs, unbeknownst to what is happening, is an Unborn who has a strange Sanskrit birthmark on his shoulder. He has been found by an agent called Emma Jenning who has been driven to eradicate birthright theft.

They go places to places to find this dangerous dealer called Dealer X, his identity unknown. And this dealer works for a person called Alexandre who is a Benefactor himself to find his kind-of alter ego, the Unborn.

It is said that if an Unborn does good things, bad things will happen to the Benefactor. Vice versa. I really like the concept of this book, but I have already read a book like this, still I enjoyed it.

Anything was better than absolute nothing.

It started meh but as I continue to read it, it becomes better and better until the end. The characters in this book are confusing as well; it has a lot of different views on different characters which is baffling. But, the world and the action it builds slowly captivate me as I immerse myself in this book.

I definitely recommend this book! It has just been recently released and it’s available on Kindle and you can order it on Amazon. But I’m hosting a giveaway on my Instagram account to win a signed copy of this book that will end on August 31. There will be 3 winners.
