Publisher's Summary

The United States have fallen. A new power has risen in North America, but now, a terrifying virus is spreading across the countryside. Once infected, people change, mutating into superhuman creatures known as the Chead. Wherever they walk, death follows. Desperate to defend its citizens, the government launches the Praegressus Project - an experimental program to enhance the human race.
Elizabeth Flores was just a normal girl - until the Chead slaughtered her parents and made her a fugitive. With winter approaching she seeks refuge in the city of Sacramento, but the hunters are waiting. Abducted off the streets, she's spirited away to a facility deep in the Californian mountains. There, Liz wakes in an iron cage - and she's not alone.
In the opposite cage, Christopher Sanders stands wrongfully accused of treason. Along with Liz, he has just become a volunteer in the Praegressus Project. Stripped of their rights, they will soon learn there is little separating humanity from the monsters they seek to destroy. The two must work together if they want to survive, but even then, their chances are slim. Of course, only the lucky get to die.
Blending the insane experiments of Stranger Things and the haunting dystopia of The Hunger Games, fans will love this thrilling new series. Discover a future where the powerful rule without mercy, and nothing is ever as it seems. With hints of YA Dystopia, Genetic Scifi, Urban Fantasy and just a touch of Romance, the Praegressus Project truly has something for everyone. Enter a new world with New York Times Bestselling Author Aaron Hodges.

Did I like this book? No!

I love this book. I had to listen to it again as soon as I finished it the first time. This book is based on some terrible truths. Government Doctors/Scientists have done unspeakable things in the past, and present. In 1950-52-ish, in the US, Gov. Doctors/Scientists fed sugar coated corn flakes to orphans in orphanages around the US. The corn flakes were also dusted with plutonium. They were monitored till all the kids died of complications from radioactive material. There are many other examples of this throughout history. On the bright side, I'm sure Aaron is going to pull this story out for a very happy ending for those that survive. I am now going to procure the second book in this series, provided it has been written already. I highly recommend this book. Now for the obligatory: This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Sci-fi suspense thriller!

The Praegressus Project, Book 1
By: Aaron Hodges
Narrated by: Michael Stene
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
This is a suspense-filled book that kept me on the edge of my....tablet. lol
The world building was good and I don't want to live there. It was an intense book where scientist were experimenting on kids. If you like Max Ride by James Patterson then you will like this. Similar but different enough to stand alone. Can't wait to see what happens next!
The narrator kept the feel of the book flowing well. Great job!
