Description

After the fallout in book one, the Ones - the one percent of the population who were genetically engineered in vitro - are rounded up and subjected to a vaccine that will reduce their brain function just enough to level the playing field.

Cody, heartbroken over a recent discovery, grows closer to a radical group of Ones who've fled to a compound in the woods. But once she's welcomed into the trusted inner circle of rebels, she slowly uncovers clues that point to the existence of a mysterious genetic program - and a conspiracy that runs deeper than she could've imagined. Torn between loyalty to her first love and the exciting rebel who shares her cause, Cody will have to choose how to forge a new world.

With breakneck action and high stakes, The Equals is a page-turner until its dramatic conclusion.

Review quote

Praise for The Ones

"Chilling and frighteningly real, The Ones leads us down a dark rabbit hole of scientific possibilities, fractured morality, and brutal consequences. It forces the question: If perfection becomes a liability, how far are we willing to go in the pursuit of it -- or to stop it?"--Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Beautiful Creatures and author ofThe Lovely Reckless

"Like watching your favorite TV show, The Ones is a thrill ride with a new shock at every turn. You won't believe what happens next, and yet, you should. Because this reality is all too possible." --Melissa de la Cruz, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Isle of the Lost and the forthcoming Something In Between

"A gripping and cautionary tale. A thrilling read." --Brendan Reichs, New York Times-bestselling coauthor of the Virals series.

"The basic premise for this captivating tale is much closer to practical concern than many might imagine. It is crucial that we visualize many possible scenarios like this one so that we can humanely respond to (or better yet anticipate) new technologies and the consequences for new babies. We hopefully will not punish the latter for the shortcomings of the former, and books like this will help us all engage with the key issues, technical and moral." --George Church, Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and author of Regenesis: How Synthetic Biology Will Reinvent Nature and Ourselves
