Review: Enhanced by Courtney Farrell


Sixteen-year-old Michelle is a product of the Institute's eugenics program, where people are bred like livestock. One doctor decides which kids get to grow up, and which disappear. Only Culls walk into the slum outside Institute walls, and they never come back. Michelle has survived every purge, and she's about to win a luxurious life as a breeder. Then the doctor banishes her brother Seth and her boyfriend Brian, and she risks everything to find them in the cutthroat slum. She's in trouble until handsome Dillon stakes a claim to her. Michelle is mortified, because Norms are practically animals. But the doctor is using the missing boys in a twisted plan and she needs Dillon's help to stop him. Michelle and her friends must find Seth and Brian, but a plague is spreading, the doctor is after her and Dillon isn't thrilled to help her find her lost boyfriend.

What an awesome ride! Sci-fi and fantasy YA books are typically a mixed bag for me, but books like Enhanced make me so happy when I travel outside of my comfort zone. The premise was horrifying and I really found myself empathizing so much with Michelle.

Michelle is my favorite kind of YA heroine: strong and smart. She is selfless and constantly risking her life for the people she cares about. I also liked the romance a lot in the book. I adore the angst in YA books.

There were a good number of secondary characters and they all had an important part to play. Despite the large cast, I still felt like the author took the time to make me invested in their fate. The book is action-packed and if I had one complaint was I would’ve liked a little more world building. The dystopian setting was just so interesting, I would’ve loved to know more.

I’d highly recommend the book to fans of dystopians with a sci-fi twist. Although the novel is YA, I feel like it definitely has crossover appeal.
