Biochemistry whiz Everly Jax wants one thing: to know who her parents are. Raised with other repo kids in InKubator 9, she has pinned her hopes on Reunion Day, the annual event where 16-year-olds can meet or reunite with their parents. When her Reunion Day goes horribly awry, she and her pregnant friend Halla escape the Kube, accompanied by their friend Wyck who has his own reasons for leaving.
In a world where rebuilding the population is critical to national survival, the Pragmatist government licenses all human reproduction, and decides who can - and must - have babies. The trio face feral dog packs, swamp threats, locust swarms, bounty hunters looking for "breeders", and more dangers as they race to Amerada's capital to find Halla's soldier boyfriend before the Prags can repo her baby and force the girls into surrogacy service.
An unexpected encounter with Bulrush, an Underground Railroad for women fleeing to Outposts with their unlicensed babies, puts them in greater peril than ever. Everly must decide what she is willing to sacrifice to learn her biological identity - and deal with the unanticipated consequences of her decisions.

Yes, loved the story and characters!
A sense of drama and a voice to the characters.
Yes! It was fast paced and had me on the edge of my seat.
I requested a copy of this audio from the author in exchange for an honest review via Audiobook Boom.

No, not the Incubation itself; because I don't have time to read the same book twice. But I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
Her narration is pretty flat, like reading an uninteresting book. I wish she had put more effort into it.
"Government licenses all human reproduction, and decides who can - and must - have babies" - I was hooked by this line in the synopsis. The book starts slowly, picks up speed soon and keeps going at a fast pace. All the turns kept me interested and I did want to finish it in one sitting. Sadly had to finish it in two.
I received a free copy of this book from the author / narrator / publisher and I'm leaving an unbiased review.
