Title: Catalyst
   Author: Lydia Kang
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: March 24th, 2015

     For fans of Uglies and The Maze Runner comes a complex, thrill-filled love story that will make you question exactly what it means to be human

     In the past year Zel lost her father, the boy she loves, her safety, and any future she might have imagined for herself. Now she, her sister, and the band of genetic outcasts they've come to call their family are forced on the run when their safe house is attacked by men with neural guns. But on the way to a rumored haven in Chicago, Zel hears something--a whisper from Cy, the boy who traded himself for her sister's safety. And when she veers off plan in order to search for him, what she finds is not what she expected. There's more to their genetic mutations than they ever imagined...aspects that make them wonder if they might be accepted by the outside world after all.

My Stance:

     Catalyst is the sequel to Control and yet again there is a book that I haven't gotten around to reading it. This synopsis though makes me want to read it asap. I like how the premise and how the book is setup. It looks great and the comparison to Uglies and The Maze Runner just make it that much more tempting. I am a huge fan of James Dashner and Scott Westerfeld, so it has a bit of a hefty comparison in my opinion. This book and series just sounds great, so I doubt there is much to really worry about.

     Now I am looking at the novel and while I get Zel is with her sister and she has a group of genetically altered friends/family, what I don't understand is how they are altered, which is why I should read the first book. That's not that big of a deal anyways, what confuses me is how Zel hears a whisper from Cy on their journey. It's almost telepathic of some sort, maybe it is, but at the same time is he working against Zel now? There are so many angels Kang could take this and it all sounds terrific.
