Um, wow! Can I leave it at that? No? Well I will try to tell you why Prototype by M.D. Waters is making my list of one of the best books I have read in 2014…and it’s not even July yet!
Just like book # 1 in this two-part series, Archetype, I would classify Prototype as a New Adult book but is a New Adult book with teeth; lots of them. I mean M.D. Waters sure knows how to write a book. From thrilling action sequences, intriguing plot twists, and stunning character development, Prototype is one book that you won’t be able to put down once you start reading it.
A huge part of what I enjoyed so much about Prototype was Emma and her journey. It was absolutely amazing to watch her find her place in the world; reconciling other’s views on who she is and was and really coming into her own and of who she is now. You are really able to identify with Emma as a character. You as the reader become so invested in Emma; so much so that her pain is your pain, and her wins are your wins. Emma is equal parts vulnerable and resilient in Prototype and that is a huge part of what makes and moves this story so well.
All in all, I can’t really tell you much more about the awesome that is Prototype by M.D. Waters without just revealing it all. What I can say is that if you are looking for a book that just goes from strength to strength and just gets better with every page you read, then Protoype is what you are looking for. Prototype is equal parts complex and simple, and for me, that is a large part of it’s appeal. Just like with Archetype, M.D. Waters has made it’s follow-up Prototype so stunningly captivating that her readers will be clamouring for more books from her, and I for one can’t wait.
Oh yeah, don’t forget that the paperback version of Archetype is being released today. It even has a snazzy new cover to go with it. You know you want to pick up a copy!
