Summary from B&N.com:
"It all comes down to one simple fact - the Children of the GEM are
perfect. We are the ugly and imperfect. We are the Blemished." In a
world filled with stunning clones Mina Hart is Blemished. Her genes are
worthless and that takes away her rights: her right to an Education, her
right to a normal life and her right to have a child. Mina keeps a
dangerous secret which she never thought she could share until she meets
Angela on her first day at St Jude's School. But their friendship is
soon complicated by Angela's adoptive brother Daniel. Mina finds herself
drawn to his mysterious powers and impulsive nature. Then there is the
gorgeous clone Sebastian who Mina is forbidden from even speaking to...
The Blemished is a frightening take on a fractured future where the
Genetic Enhancement Ministry have taken control of Britain. It will take
you on a ride filled with adventure, romance and rebellion. A beautiful
world comes at a price...
The Blemished is phenomenal and
riveting. It is like no other book that I have ever read. I was
wonderstruck by everything about this book; the amazing and extremely
interesting storyline, the lively characters, the stunning world building, and
the overall beautiful writing. This book blew me away, and I highly recommend
The storyline left me speechless.
It was thrilling and unpredictable. You never know what
is going to happen; Sarah Dalton keeps you on your toes. It's also very entertaining and addicting.
The subjects this book covers are interesting and unique. But what made it so astounding
was the way it was brought to life.
The characters are very realistic
and relatable. I loved all of the characters. The characters main or not,
brought the story alive. I loved Mina; she is strong and very enjoyable to read
about. Mina is a bit of a heroine, which for my tops this amazing book off.
The world building was beautifully
done. It told you the world came to be like it is in the book, and it did it
without it taking sway from the story. I loved the dystopian world. It was very
engrossing, and jaw dropping.
Sarah Dalton did an incredible writing
The Blemished. I loved it. It is completely amazing. I highly recommend this
