Tankborn is the first in the Tankborn trilogy. Awakening is the second book, available now. The third has not yet been released.
I first read this book about 3 weeks ago, and I still can’t get the characters, or their world, out of my head.
The story follows Kayla and her friend Mishalla, two GEN girls who are about to be Assigned. GENs, Genetically Engineered Non-humans, are considered the lowest caste of all. However, all GENs are conditioned to believe that this is they way it should be.
As the story unfolds, it becomes evident that there is far more to this than dehumanizing caste systems. Kayla and Mishalla are linked in an unexpected way, and the GENs conditioning is not as it appears.
