Twenty-one year old Wynter Reeves is always the model citizen, blending in, and unnoticed. Until now. She gets a tremendous headache and appears to have a seizure during her placement test. Once she regains her composure she flees, not finishing the test. Upon returning home the State takes her into custody turning her into a lab experiment. Wynter has Ultraxenopia, a deadly disease that enables her to have visions. What do these visions have to do with the underground movement, Phoenix? And, why is the State so interested in nurturing her disease?
Phipps debut novel, Ultraxenopia (Project W. A. R. Book 1) is an original page turner! She is able to draw you immediately into this dystopian world and keep you there with her storytelling. Her characters are believable and well developed. The pace of the book is almost melodic and makes you want to read more. It is an interesting read told from Wynter’s point of view.
Thankfully, this is the first of the series as I am looking forward to reading the rest of Wynter’s story. 5 out of 5 stars.
I received this book for free from the author for review consideration. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.
