THE WORLD HAS CHANGED.

SCIENTISTS WARNED IT WOULD HAPPEN.

Meteors devastated the Earth. World Governments developed plans to help surviving citizens. The United States disbanded and salvageable land was divided into our quadrants—North, South, East, and West—governed by The Remnant Council.

Struggling to survive, seventeen-year-old Ava ends up in juvenile detention, until she is selected for a new life—with a catch. She must be injected with an experimental serum. The results will be life-changing. The serum will make her better. To receive the serum, Ava agrees to join a program controlled by ISAN, the International Sensory Assassin Network.

While on a mission, she is abducted by a rebel group led by Rhett and told that not only does she have a history with him, but her entire past is a lie perpetuated by ISAN to ensure her compliance. Unsure of who to trust, Ava must decide if her strangely familiar and handsome captor is her enemy or her savior—and time is running out.

ARC BOOK REVIEW
Release Date-1/5/18

ISAN (International Sensory Assassin Network) was a read I enjoyed very much.
I have been reading quite a few YA novels at the moment and this was one that intrigued me massively.
So this was my first book by this particular author and “ISAN” overall was a clean YA read.
The blurb initially piqued my attention in a good way and this was one I was really looking forward to getting stuck into.
so if I had to split this down into parts I would say the second half of this book is of a much faster pace than the first.
I would also have myself liked for the beginning of”ISAN” to be of a faster pace with maybe more in-depth world-building.
For me, this would have pushed this from a four-star up into a five.
But when this eventually did get going it was fast paced with plenty of action and definitely kept me on my toes throughout.
With a vast array of diverse individuals “ISAN” delivers on all fronts.
I am still finding my feet in regards to what is occurring and the hidden agendas buried within the narrative here, but I am also very much looking forward and ahead to where this may go in the future.
The possibilities are endless and I can’t wait to see where they lead.
So all-though there is a romantic element here in “Isan” this very much takes a back seat in the overall storyline plot.
This has more of a post-apocalyptic dystopian vibe than a romantic one and the setting hooked me right from the beginning.
“ISAN” is told from Ava’s POV I myself would have definitely preferred a more well-rounded perspective from multiple characters, but that’s just me.
I Also should mention that this is also quite a lengthy read of at least five hours and it also ended on a giant cliffhanger.
I’m almost positive from this there is going to be a twist coming, there just has to be, It cant be left like that.
So I found this to be a great dystopian read that also had an extremely imaginative narrative.
It was a fabulous start to what I am sure will be a great new series.
Eagerly awaiting the next instalment now.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC of “ISAN – International Sensory Assassin Network ” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
