Lemon Fresh has seen better days.
After the climactic battle in Babel, she finds herself separated from Ezekiel and Cricket in the wastelands. Lemon’s abilities to manipulate electricity mark her as a deviate, and deadly corporate operatives are hunting her to use as a weapon in the war between BioMaas Incorporated and Daedelus Technologies. Instead, Lemon finds herself falling in with a group of fellow deviates—a band of teenagers with astonishing abilities, led by an enigmatic figure known as the Major, who may hold the secrets to Lemon’s past.
Meanwhile, Cricket finds himself in possession of the puritanical Brotherhood, a religious cult set for a head-on collision with the Major and his band. Searching for Lemon, Ezekiel finds a strange ally in an old enemy, and uncovers a plot that may see him reunited with his beloved Ana.
And inside Babel, a remade Eve hatches a plan to bring an end to the world.

This book follows the events after Lifelike and it’s filled to the brim with scientific references and machines. Something like Mortal Engines. The mystery of Ana Monrova is one of the center of the plot. Lemon and her friends have friendly jokes and banter that keeps the book entertaining to read despite the seriousness and grit of the setting.
I haven’t read the whole series yet to be honest and I joined this blog tour mainly to promote the series. This series is full of grit, machines, and action. There’s no softheartedness in this book and it’s all grit and strong and fresh characters. Jay Kristoff knows how to write a good badass book filled with fast-paced plots and unique world building.
This book revolves around humanity and human evolution. With diverse and unique characters. There are bots talking and advanced machines. If you’re a huge fan of sci-fi books then this book is perfect for you!
