Precisely Terminated, Amanda L. Davis

Precisely Terminated is a book that transports readers to a desperate and terrible time. It reminded me somewhat of Ayn Rand's writing as well as 1984. The Dystopian society is clearly illustrated in the pages of this book. Each character is well-developed, and easy to empathize with. Amanda Davis does an excellent job with her descriptive writing making this world real and believable and causing the reader to become deeply connected with the cause and condition of the slaves.

I loved the themes of self-sacrifice and love that are deeply embedded in the story. This is true heroism at it's highest - people willing to go the distance for others. All of these slaves believed in a higher goal and held a hope of a brighter future. This hope was tied up in one child that did not have a chip, yet keeping this one child alive was difficult and required a great deal of sacrifice on the part of others. In this we see Monica develop into a young lady with mercy, and kindness guiding her thoughts.

I can not wait to read the coming books in this series. Amanda Davis has written a book that could quickly make it's way onto the reading lists of public schools along side the classics of 1984, Atlas Shrugged, and The Handmaid's Tale. This book is truly exceptional.

Thanks to the publisher for this review copy.
