Synopsis

`Hey, you. Yes, you. Put this grimy, beautiful, devastating, hilarious, screaming, writhing, all-out post-apocalyptic girl-buddy-road-warrior-lost princess-techno-thriller in your face and read it right now. It is every kind of badass'

Laini Taylor, NYT bestselling author of STRANGE THE DREAMER and the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy





A thrilling new series from Jay Kristoff, internationally best-selling author of The Nevernight Chronicle and The Illuminae Files.





It's just another day on the Scrap: lose the last of your credits at the WarDome, dodge the gangs and religious fanatics, discover you can destroy electronics with your mind, stumble upon the deadliest robot ever built...





When Eve finds the ruins of an android boy named Ezekiel in the scrap pile she calls home, her entire world comes crashing down. With her best friend and her robotic sidekick in tow, she and Ezekiel will trek across deserts of irradiated glass, battle cyborg assassins, and scour abandoned megacities to save the ones she loves...and learn the dark secrets of her past.

Customer Reviews

There’s this certain fear you feel, going into a book by Jay Kristoff, because he has this undeniable talent to make you FALL FOR and truly GET INVESTED in the lives of the characters on his pages, and then in just a SNAP, kills them off, leaving you reeling and heartbroken. Of course, books that break me are also my favourite kind of books to read, so here we are. I finished reading this book MORE THAN A WEEK AGO and I’m only now sitting down to write my review because WHAT EVEN WAS THAT BOOK AND WILL SOMEONE PLEASE HAND ME THE NEXT ONE, THANKS. THINGS I’M OBSESSED WITH IN LIFELIKE: 1. THE CHARACTERS, ALL THREE CATEGORIES OF ROBOT INCLUDED: I mean, HOLY CRAP. I loved Evie and Ezekiel and Lemon Fresh and Kasier and Cricket and JUST ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE. EVEN THE BAD GUYS. Well, maybe not the bounty hunter, but I DID love all the Lifelikes. I also loved the PURE SASS that each and every one of them had, especially Evie, calling Ezekiel ‘Brain trauma’ and each time they got into a bad situation, which was the whole book, really, how they would STILL BE SASSING EACH OTHER OUT WHILE KILLING BAD GUYS. 2. THE PLOT TWISTS: I mean, someone hold me, because there were plot twists inside plot twists and essentially, everything we learnt turns out to be a LIE and I honestly cannot wait to see what Lifelike 2 is all about because the plotting in this book was ALL OUT GENIUS and I never saw THREE QUARTERS OF IT COMING. *Still reels from all the shock* 3. THE COVER: The more I read in the book, the more I realised the significance of the (UK) cover to it all. It’s just SUCH A GORGEOUS COVER AND I CANNOT STOP STARING. 4. Ezekiel: I love LOVE this Lifelike in particular. I love the way he fight, his power, his determination and his loyalty. It was just such a pleasure, getting to know him and also unravel all his lies as the book went on. I LOVE THE MORALLY GREY NATURE OF ESSENTIALLY EVERY CHARACTER IN THIS BOOK. They’re all so messed up, and it felt so real and human and I loved it. 5. MACHINE VS HUMAN: I loved the debate this book strung, through the Lifelikes, about how ‘human’ machines are. It was such a heart wrenching thing that I honestly didn’t expect. It made me see this book (and AIDAN, from Illuminae, TBH) in a completely different light. WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK? Without a doubt. Lifelike was a crazy, brilliant marvel of a book that has twists within its biggest plot twists, robots that seem human, kraken, bounty hunters, girls with the power to bring down machines with their minds and flying houses. It honestly doesn’t get better than this post-apocalyptic MASTERPIECE and I will NEVER STOP RECOMMENDING IT.
