The Book of Flora by Meg Elison


And now we have the very last book in the Road to Nowhere series. It has been quite the ride, journey and experience. This review will hold spoilers for the first two books, but I will try my best not to spoil this last book in this review.
It has been over one hundred years since the Dying has taken place. And the army is on its way to Bambritch Island. The refugees have been pouring in. The leader, sometimes described as a man other times described as a woman, has been destroying cities, killing everyone including pregnant women all in the search for “frags”. Flora had heard of frags, people who can impregnate themselves and have living children, before but had always dismissed it as a myth.

We know that danger is coming but we also have absolutely no idea how Flora…

Etta has known Nowhere as her home her entire life. But Eddy, the male persona she inhabits as she raids has never seen Nowhere as his home. The two are the same and yet they are different.

She was meant to be more like the Unnamed Midwife, whose stories she had known since childhood. The midwife was who she wanted to be like, helping women in any way she could. Eddy hates the …

Wildcard is the sequel to Warcross. There will be some spoilers regarding Warcross in this review so if you haven’t read the first book I would definitely recommend doing so before reading this review. That is the only disclaimer you are going to get! Moving on. It’s been weeks since Hideo’s algorithm took over the Neurolink. People have been turning themselves in for past crimes to the police. Crime is at an all time low. And the Dark Web is slowly fading due to all of the people reporting details to the police. And while the general public has no idea what has happened, Emika knows it’s because of Hideo. Because he has taken away choice and is forcing people to do no harm through his algorithm. But Emika can’t forget the person she saw when the algorithm took over. The man standing in all black, whose identity showed as Sasuke Tanaka, Hideo’s brother whom everyone assumed was dead. Could Zero really be Sasuke? Was he actually trying to stop Hideo? Why hadn’t he g…
