Read full description of the books Inhuman:
If love triangles where at least one of the dudes is an über-douche don’t bother you, you might be fine reading this book.
I hate triangles. I frigging hate them. I want to kill all of them with fire. This is one of the ones that I’d like to kill slowly with fire. I’m not exaggerating when I say that Rafe, one of the love interests, ruined a lot of this book for me. More specifically, I should say that it was our MC, Lane, and her interest in him that ruined this book for me.
The guy is an ASSHOLE. And not even a loveable one like Jericho Barrons (does everything come back to that series?!). Nope, he’s the irredeemable kind. The first time they meet he tells Lane that he’ll help her if she sleeps with him (not the only time he asks her to prostitute herself for him, btw). Then he stabs her. Then he abandons her to a creature that could kill her and then he turns her over to people that want to capture her in exchange for his freedom. This is all within the first third of the book, btw. But she still feels butterflies for him because he’s…you guessed it, HOT.
Oh and he’s not just a bastard to her, but to everyone. Charming, eh? By the time he started to show some sort of humane behavior ¾ of the book had gone by and he was still a monumental douche in between rare spots of real emotion. Sorry, too late to save him, actually, there’s no way to save him.
If you know nothing about wilderness survival or self-defense, you might be fine reading this book.
My father is a survivalist. No really, that’s what he does, teaches people how not to die if they get lost in the woods or if the zombie apocalypse comes. You could drop him into the middle of the wild and he’d walk out fat and happy two weeks later wearing the pelt of a bear he killed using a spear he fashioned out of a stick, a sharpened river stone, and vines, all held together with pinesap. Yeah, I grew up with that. I’ve also taken martial arts and self defense on and off for 20 years and can fire/throw most weapons known to man. So again…yeah.
This MC apparently took a lot of survival courses and self defense. She’ll tell you this so many times that you might just start believing her. And that’s one of my biggest issues with this book, she told me but didn’t show me. There wasn’t a single moment that I thought, “Oh, nicely done”. She didn’t rig up a snare to catch dinner, she didn’t kick the ever living shit out of ANYONE, and most of the time she flailed around like any other city girl would in her situation and had to be saved by…you guessed it, men. Once I almost thought she’d done something worthy of an approving nod but then she ruined it by revealing that she’d used their only drinking water to cook her and her friends a dinner they didn’t need to eat due to the abundance of other readily available food in their vicinity. Le sigh.
If shock and awe campaigns don’t bother you, you might be fine reading this book.
The end of this book was…rough. It was like the story was trying to one-up itself. No one likes one-uppers. The last fifty pages or so was one thing after another after another. One dimensional villain acting evil, followed by one dimensional villain acting evil, followed by shocking plot twist, followed by one dimensional villain acting evil, followed by death, followed by shocking plot twist, followed by another death, followed by…you get the picture. And no, I am not exaggerating. That is literally the last 50 pages, sans spoilers.
I think the reason that my review is so critical is because I really liked some aspects of this book and so mostly, I’m disappointed.
I loved the beginning. I thought the world building was phenomenal, I thought the cause of the plague and the various strains of the virus that infected both humans and animals were fascinating, the writing was strong and I liked where I thought it was all going. But then it started to fall apart for me about halfway through and continued to unravel until the end.
By the last page I actually hated Lane as much as I did Rafe. She blamed herself for everything, all the time. It got old. She was TSTL. It got old. She chose the WRONG FUCKING GUY. It pissed me the hell off. Also, you know those scenes where someone will risk the rest of the world to save one person and it’s supposed to be romantic but really you just end up thinking “Fuck it, let em die”? Yeah, that.
Oh and let’s not forget, when the boy you’d sacrifice the world for no longer seems like an option, there’s always the other one.

Read information about the authorKat Falls lives in Evanston, IL with her husband, theater director Robert Falls, their three children, and a whole slew of pets. She grew up in Silver Spring, MD, attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as an undergrad, and went on to receive an MFA from Northwestern University, where she now teaches.
Kat is the author of the middle-grade science fiction novels, Dark Life and Rip Tide, which she describes as “underwater westerns.”
She came up with the idea for Dark Life (Scholastic, 2010) during a writing exercise. Knowing that her 11-year-old son loved reading about the ocean, Wild West pioneers, and the X-Men, she combined his interests and created a story premise that kept her up nights plotting and world-building. Since then, Dark Life has been nominated for children’s book awards in ten states and translated into 17 languages around the world. Kat appeared on the Today Show when Dark Life was featured on Al Roker's Book Club. Currently, Dark Life is in development for film at Disney with The Gotham Group producing.
When the sequel, Rip Tide (Scholastic, 2011) came out, Publishers Weekly wrote, “As with its predecessor, there’s no shortage of action, intrigue, or daring exploits in this aquatic thriller. Atmospheric and tense, built around an expertly used post apocalyptic–meets–Wild West setting, this story’s a whole lot of fun.”
Kat’s YA novel, Inhuman (Scholastic, 2013), is the first book of a science fiction trilogy set in the near future after a plague has turned millions of people into feral beast-men.
Inhuman received glowing reviews from Publishers Weekly, SLJ, VOYA, and a starred review from Kirkus. Inhuman is also a nominee on the 2014-2015 Tome Society It List for “clean” teen reads.
