Emily's Waiting on:

Title: This Mortal Coil
Author: Emily Suvada
Genre: YA SciFi
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: Nov. 7th, 2017

Summary: Catarina Agatta is a hacker. She can cripple mainframes and crash through firewalls, but that’s not what makes her special. In Cat’s world, people are implanted with technology to recode their DNA, allowing them to change their bodies in any way they want. And Cat happens to be a gene-hacking genius.
That’s no surprise, since Cat’s father is Dr. Lachlan Agatta, a legendary geneticist who may be the last hope for defeating a plague that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. But during the outbreak, Lachlan was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called Cartaxus, leaving Cat to survive the last two years on her own.
When a Cartaxus soldier, Cole, arrives with news that her father has been killed, Cat’s instincts tell her it’s just another Cartaxus lie. But Cole also brings a message: before Lachlan died, he managed to create a vaccine, and Cole needs Cat’s help to release it and save the human race.
Now Cat must decide who she can trust: The soldier with secrets of his own? The father who made her promise to hide from Cartaxus at all costs? In a world where nature itself can be rewritten, how much can she even trust herself?

I'm honestly not always a huge fan of SciFi, but there's something about this that's pulling me in. It's got the science fiction with the DNA recoding and a bit of mystery with the "shadowy organization. I'm predicting a possible uprising and a bit of romance between Cat and Cole (yes, I've all started theorizing). This is the first book in what the author is saying will be a trilogy, so I'm excited to watch the characters grow, as well as the story. If ScFi is your thing, let me know what you think about this new series and any theories you may also have!
