Ultraxenopia Wrap

Don’t stand out. Blend in. Remain invisible. Those are the rules I lived by—the rules I thought would keep me alive.

I was wrong.

Wynter Reeves is a law-abiding citizen of the State, a willing conformist whose daily life is haunted by terrorism and oppression. With the constant threat of death hanging over her like a shadow, she forces herself to live by a strict set of rules, all in the hope of ensuring she is never noticed. However, on her twenty-first birthday, as she prepares to take the placement exam that will determine her future within society, she begins to show symptoms of a rare and debilitating illness—ultimately attracting the attention of the State. Taken into the custody of the feared research facility known as the DSD, her worst nightmare becomes reality.

Ripped away from the life she knew, Wynter is forced to become the test subject of the mysterious Dr. Richter. Through him, she learns the true and terrifying nature of her condition: a disease called Ultraxenopia.

“Her blood type,” she whispers in a hushed voice to the man. “It’s . . . changing.”

I may not know much about science, or anything medical having to do with the human body, but I know enough to be certain that what she’s saying isn’t possible. Not without unnatural intervention at least.

I gape at the man, but he doesn’t say anything. He doesn’t even seem to react to this news. His eyes follow the code for a while, and his fingers rub his chin as if deep in thought.

When the process is complete, the sphere stops spinning and sinks back to the desktop, landing with a soft thud against the glass surface. Within seconds of touching down, the metal exterior shifts until it’s once again nothing more than a silver bowl filled with blood.

The man straightens up, and everyone in the room watches him in silence, waiting for him to speak.

Including me.

“Fascinating,” he murmurs.

Without warning, he looks over at me, and my heart rate increases when his lips curl into a smile. For some reason, his expression is unnerving.

Moving toward me, his footsteps echo off the floor—the sound growing louder as the distance between us shrinks. His gaze never leaves mine.

Stopping just in front of me, he flashes a kind smile. “Hello, Wynter. My name is Dr. Richter. I’ll be taking care of you.”

Taking care of me?

“Why am I here?” I breathe. My voice is shaky, and the dryness in my throat is apparent in each raspy word. “What are you going to do to me?”

“Shh, hush now,” he whispers. “All of your questions will be answered in time.”

He smiles once again, only breaking eye contact with me to glance down at his hand. I follow his gaze, the fear re-emerging when I see him pull a syringe from the depths of his coat pocket. His eyes flash back to mine, and I know he can sense my fear as well as the piercing screams lodged in my throat.

“But for now,” he croons as he injects the syringe into one of the tubes in my right arm, “you must sleep.”

He takes a step away from me, that disconcerting expression still plastered across his face. I try to say something, but I’m unable to get out a single word before I feel the effects of the liquid as it enters my system. It rushes through me like a cold chill.

I want to fight against it, but it’s hopeless.

As the drowsiness returns to pull me under yet again, the doctor’s smile is all I can see.


That’s all for now!



Type X

Morning Guys,

Last week I received an ARC for Type X the sequel and second book in the Project W.A.R. series by M.A. Phipps, for an honest review. 30626391

Type X is a new adult, science fiction & fantasy novel that takes place in a dystopian society. The book picks up two years after Wynter returned to the DSD at the end of book one.

Wynter has changed; she’s become the State’s puppet and Dr. Richter’s own personal “angel of death.” Wynter is sent on mission after mission, exterminating all those who oppose the State. She is both a tool and a slave, leashed by the collar around her neck–the only thing keeping her in control of the deadly power within.

With the increasing death toll and mounting friction with Richter, Wynter’s mind starts to fracture and the humanity (and memories) she lost begins to resurface. Now Wynter must choose between regaining her humanity and a life she thought lost and preventing the destruction haunting her waking mind. Will Wynter be able to make the ultimate sacrifice or will she truly become an instrument of W.A.R.?

This book starts off with a bang. I just love dark and twisty Wynter! She’s an emotionless badass without being a archetypal character. You can tell the old Wynter is in there but much has happened to force her down.

The reunion with Ezra was also really well done in my opinion. In book one you get this whirlwind romance, built on intense situations and an instant spark. Whereas in book two we get a slower burn, a romance that needs to be rekindled and reforged. I also loved the “new” Jenner, who keeps his boyishness even though he’s been battle hardened by life.

One of the things I really like about this book, is that we get a lot more details about the State. In book one the State was typical dystopian entity that we really didn’t know much about; in Type X we get more of those details readers crave. We find out how the State was created, what it does, whose a part of it, etc. This is one thing readers of Ultraxenopia will be sure to appreciate.

Phipps has a really unique approach to this second book in the series. The pace of the book starts out fast and stays that way all while Wynter is with the DSD; it is action packed, dark and pulls the reader in. The pace then slows down just in time to give the readers what they want–background, intrigue, relationship building and more. With the pace written like this you could read the books back to back and feel like it is just one long story with ups and downs.

Overall, I really enjoyed this sequel even if the ending was evil–in a good way. Worth a read for any dystopian lover–teens and up. Type X will be officially published tomorrow!

That’s all for now!
