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.
Prototype takes place a year and 4 months after Archetype ends. Emma finds herself now in Mexico searching for her parents who, several years ago disappeared after they escaped prison? Her search is thwarted when Declan (Yes Declan is back and more determined than ever) sends a mass hologram message to every country with a story that Emma was kidnapped by the resistance and puts a huge price on her head. A price that would be hard for any man to resist. Which is what Declan is counting on.
Where does that lead? Well to Noah of course. But things are different know. Sonya has a bigger part in the story this time especially since she is helping Noah raise his and Emma’s daughter. I was never a big fan of Sonya, even from the beginning. There was more than one occasion were I wanted someone to slap her and put her in her place (That person being Emma of course).
I have to admit, that before things got crazy with Declan in the first book, I was hoping just a little bit that Declan would be the guy for Emma and he would turn out not to be so bad. But then came Noah. And he stole my heart and I pretty much fell in love with him just like Emma did. And I loved that we get more Emma and Noah time.
After surprisingly falling in love with Archetype, I couldn't want to get my hands on Prototype. It turned out to be every bit as good as I hoped it would be, if not better. I was anxious to see what would unfold next for Emma, Noah, and yes even Declan. The story never really lets up. There was plenty of action, twists and turns, to keep me hooked. I devoured the book in no time. The only thing I am sad about is that the series isn’t a trilogy.
If you’re a fan of futuristic sci-fi action stories with a tough female heroine, then I would definitely recommend this book to you.
RATING: 5 out of 5.
