Title: The Ganga Shift
Author: Mary Bernsen
Date of Publication: April 10th, 2018
Life hasn’t been easy for Isabella. She spent most of her childhood in the foster care system, and now at twenty-two she has landed herself in prison on drug charges. Her troubled past is what makes her a perfect candidate for the government’s latest scientific endeavor, Operation Gene Re-sequencing. No one will miss her. No one will question her absence. But, when it’s discovered Isabella is immune to their DNA-changing drugs, she is selected to be used as prey for those who aren’t.
Chase and Brayden couldn’t be more opposite; Chase is calm, reserved, and completely insistent that he will control the changes the virus is causing in his body. Brayden, on the other hand, has always been wild and uninhibited. He welcomes the new animalistic nature coming over him. The one thing they have in common? They both have a taste for the cute little inmate who is now sharing their cell.
So this book was like a more grown up version of the Hunger Games with a paranormal vibe and maybe some mythology type stuff, which equals awesome! Can I shift into something now?
I really loved the main character, Isabella. I liked her because she wasn’t the typical protagonist, and she had made some dumb choices in her past, but throughout the book you see her grow. It makes me want to cheer like I’m rooting for my own child! Also, based on her past, you can’t help but feel for her!
Yes, there are two boys, but don’t worry because it is clear who Isabella likes! Once out on the island, that’s where things get pretty awesome and interesting. Chase was my own personal baby! And Brayden is such an interesting character. So there are a lot of great side characters to keep you entertained.
I’m super excited to see what’s going to happen next because where the books seems to be leading is going to be a-a-a-a-mazing!
How does this book sound to you?
