Hands down my favorite book so far of 2014. I loved this one, but it’s so hard to describe what type of book it actually is…Sci-Fi? Romance? Mystery? Dystopian Fiction? This book had everything including jaw-dropping plot twists and turns.
I’m deliberately going to be very vague with this review so I don’t spoil any of the brilliant details of this book. The overall plot was not exactly new but it was presented with a fresh and unique perspective. From the very first chapter to the last I was hooked on this one and could not stop listening. Some might consider the middle of this book a little slow but it was essential to the build-up of the mystery. I thought I had this one all figured out but I couldn’t have been more wrong. I love it when a book surprises me.
I can’t wait until Prototype is release this summer. Thankfully this is not a trilogy and I won’t have to wait a whole year to get the conclusion to this stunning and sensational story!
5 HUGE stars!

STORY - I loved this book and found it hard to put down, but to say anything more than is in the publisher's summary would give things away. If you're a listener who insists on everything being plausible and making perfect sense, this may not be the book for you. You've got to enjoy a futuristic make-believe world and then adapt as everything turns upside down. And you must enjoy romance. That's not to say this is only a romance novel...far from it! But I will add that the steamy scenes are awesome! They're just the way I like them as a listener. Not too often, not too explicit, but very slow, sensual and romantic.
I do have one complaint about the book, however. There is a lot of switching from past to present, which in an actual book would probably be delineated by double spacing or even a new page. I don't know if the reader could have helped the situation or not, but sometimes one timeline would fade into another, which sometimes made things a little hard to follow.
PERFORMANCE - Khristine Hvan does a great job. I especially liked the way she read the intimate scenes, making them even more romantic.
OVERALL - Archetype has sex, cursing, mild violence, and subject matter that is probably not appropriate for young teens. I would mainly recommend this book for women because of the romantic aspect. This is the first book in a series of two books (at present.) This story ended wonderfully and can stand alone, but the ending will definitely leave you anxious to hear Prototype, Book 2.
