Inhaltsangabe

When Zach and I were born, our parents must have counted and recounted: limbs, fingers, toes. The complete set. They would have been disbelieving - nobody dodged the split between Alpha and Omega. Nobody. Born as twins. Raised as enemies.

One strong Alpha twin and one mutated Omega; the only thing they share is the moment of their death.

The Omegas live in segregation, cast out by their families, as soon as their mutations become clear. Forced to live apart, they are ruthlessly oppressed by their Alpha counterparts.The Alphas are the elite. Once their weaker twins have been cast aside, they're free to live in privilege and safety, their Omega twins far from their thoughts.

Cass and Zach are both perfect on the outside: no missing limbs, no visible Omega mutations. But Cass has a secret: one that Zach will stop at nothing to expose.

The potential to change the world lies in both their hands. One will have to defeat the other to see his or her vision of the future come to pass, but if they're not careful both will die in the struggle for power.

Kritikerstimmen

"This book is a thought provoking whirlwind of a story, with a fab lead character, grisly politics and brave adventure. I loved it!" (Jessie Burton)
"A hell of a ride. I would recommend it to anyone I can, regardless of age." (James Oswald)

Dark & Intruiging

Story:
Post-apocalyptic novels for me were either a hit or a miss. The Last Children of Schewenborn: miss; Station Eleven: hit; Fire Sermon: Hmmm.
There is excellent writing thanks to clever choices: the author builds an intruiging narration through the protagonist Cassandra and her inner voice. Sadly sometimes other characters stay pale in comparison.
The worldbuilding with the supernatural twist is also well done.
The story-arc in this book is a little streched and thin in the middle which gets better towards the ending, here and there are minor logical issues for me.
It convinced me to continue to the next installment.

Narrator:
A little bit of a miss. Postapocalypse dosn't excuse the very flat and depressing delivery. Certain passages would allow for more tension and greater range of emotion. Also there are very strange pronunciations: omega sounds like amiga and wrong for my ears, but that could just be me.

geht so

Nette Idee, aber in der Umsetzung nichts Neues oder Überraschendes, und auch nicht immer logisch
