Baxter and Addison are meant to die, but their love for each other won’t let them choose that future.
In 2134, the United States of America no longer exists as the super power it once was. Americans struggle to fight to keep from being completely conquered by their enemies. Scientists have begun to genetically engine soldiers to fight the war. These men were stronger, faster, and more impervious to injuries. The soldiers are created in labs, then once they are birthed, they are shipped to compounds where they are trained from their very first breath to fight.
Baxter and Addison are two such soldiers. They are from different compounds, but serve in the same unit. Baxter isn’t the most intelligent of the soldiers, and he knows it. His job is to kill the bad guys, and not to do anything else. Addison understands his place in the world, but he finds he wants more at times. He doesn’t want to just be a killer. He wants to have some other kind of life, and he’s discovered he wants his life to be with Baxter.
When their unit decides to make a desperate run for the border and freedom, Baxter and Addison only have the certainty of their love to get them through the dangers they are about to face.
Well, that was interesting. I’m not sure I’ve ever read a book a book about genetically altered beings and then said beings altering themselves.
It’s war time and these soldiers know there job, understand the job but also understand something else, want something else. And have found a way to get it.
The world in that time frame, has decided the new breed of soldiers are almost throw away, and the new men in charge feel very much the same way. So when these two get wind that they are next to be given a one way mission they have decided to make a break for it.
It was heart warming to see Baxter and Addison learning these new feelings and situation. You’ve one man that feels like he’s not worthy of the love that he has been given. While they both want nothing more then the life and love and freedom all the other soldiers are given.
