Review: Awakening (Tankborn #2) by Karen Sandler

Once a GEN (genetically engineered nonhuman) girl terrified of her first Assignment, Kayla is now a member of the Kinship, a secret organization of GENs, lowborns, and trueborns. Kayla travels on Kinship business, collecting information to further the cause of GEN freedom.
Despite Kayla’s relative freedom, she is still a slave to the trueborn ruling class. She rarely sees trueborn Devak, and any relationship between them is still strictly forbidden.
Kayla longs to be truly free, but other priorities have gotten in the way. A paradoxically deadly new virus has swept through GEN sectors—a disease only GENs catch. And GEN warrens and warehouses are being bombed, with only a scrawled clue: F.H.E. Freedom, Humanity, Equality.
With the virus and the bombings decimating the GEN community, freedom and love are put on the back burner as Kayla and her friends find a way to stop the killing . . . before it’s too late.
This is the next installment in the GEN's struggle toward Freedom, Humanity & Equality. What a truly fascinating journey it has been so far. I really enjoyed the complexity of this storyline. The author does a wonderful job of infusing the storyline with intrigue & wonder. The main character has been on quite an adventure to become self-aware. Now that some things are becoming more clear, others are becoming hazy. The young lady is strong willed, caring & compassionate. She is a good example for teens to follow. Truth is not always the easiest path to follow but is usually the most rewarding in the end. The story hits the climax on a high note and leaves one heck of a cliffhanger. Surely, this can not be the end of the eye opening journey to awakening. I can not wait to read the next installment to this thought provoking world of the tank born. Hope you like it too.... Happy Reading!!
