Prototype by M.D. Waters

Saturday, June 7, 2014

The stunning debut that began with "Archetype"-- and has readers buzzing--concludes in "Prototype," when a woman's dual pasts lock onto a collision course, threatening her present and future. 
Emma looks forward to the day when she can let go of her past--both of them. After more than a year on the run, with clues to her parents' whereabouts within her grasp, she may finally find a place to settle down. Start a new life. Maybe even create new memories with a new family. 
But the past rises to haunt her and to make sure there's nowhere on the planet she can hide. Declan Burke wants his wife back, and with a little manipulation and a lot of reward money, he's got the entire world on his side. Except for the one man she dreads confronting the most: Noah Tucker. 
Emma returns to face what she's done but finds that the past isn't the problem. It's the present--and the future it represents. Noah has moved on and another woman is raising their daughter. 
In the shocking conclusion to M.D. Waters's spectacular debut, Emma battles for her life and her freedom, tearing down walls and ripping off masks to reveal the truth. She's decided to play their game and prove she isn't the woman they thought she was. Even if it means she winds up dead. Or worse, reborn.

Goodreads Summary

As someone who is always on the move in life, I found a deep connection to this book as the main character is always looking to what is next. We are both on the move for very different reasons but constantly moving just the same. Emma has two different pasts that are on a collision course and how they collide will determine her present and future.

I though the idea for this novel was very interesting and unique. It isn't quite a time travel story but certainly about alternative realities and how chaos can ensue when one changes the other. As this is the sequel to "Archetype"  it would be a good thing to read that first so that you are up to speed with the story fully. It would not be a huge distraction to have not read the first book, however there are some things that would be more clear. You should definitely read "Prototype" and see how Emma's past choices come together to make her future.

  1. This series came out of absolute nowhere, and took the blogosphere by storm. People have absolutely gushed about Archetype, and I definitely want to try it out. Even more so now that reviews fr Prototype are out and just as glowing!
