Dain has lost everything. His mom and Tara are both gone. The face that he once used as a solace, he can no longer bear to see. He’s unraveling; Akila may not be enough to hold the strands together.
For Akila watching Dain become a shadow of the guy she once knew is torture. She knows she is losing him but how can she stop it while holding on to secrets of her own? All she has to do is keep everything together long enough to stop the evil scientists that are out to sabotage their destiny.
They are both fighting their own demons but whose will destroy them first?
Dain is lost in grief and buried in rage over the loss of his mother and the betrayal of his friends. But he can't let it drag him down because he has to save himself and those that he thought he loved. Akila is running with him, but she betrayed him too, and she's not sure she can save Dain from his anger. With the Facility after them and so many questions left unanswered it is not only a question of survival but a question of truth.
I love Dain. Let's just get that out in the open before we go any further. But in The Remade I had a serious love hate relationship with him. I definitely did not agree with some of his decisions in this book. So much so, that if I was his friend I would have smacked the ever loving crap out him! Yes I know he is grieving and is ultra pissed for what his friends did, but I personally think his behavior is coming from somewhere else... someplace deeper. (Psst, I'm not going to tell what I really think because that would give too much away)
But his actions aren't the only ones I questioned in this book. Now don't get me wrong I love all the characters in this series for different reasons, but I seemed to want to smack them a lot. I think there is a major plot twist coming, but Casse NaRome is just toying with us, slowly taunting us, giving us these little bread crumbs while she sits back and watches us squirm and debate the future of the characters. I know something major is going to happen and it is driving me freaking crazy!
The Remade is a story about heartbreak, loss, grief and survival. All the characters are battling their own demons all while trying to stay alive and discover the truth. Granted some do a better job of dealing with all these things than others, but that's all part of what makes the story interesting. The Remade is a very character driven book with characters that are easy to love, or hate. The Remade is an easy read that will allow you to focus on someone else's problems for a while. And if I had one complaint it would be that it just wasn't long enough!
