Inhuman by Kat Falls; The Darkest Path by Jeff Hirsch; The Bar Code Prophecy by Suzanne Weyn

Description: In a world ravaged by mutation, a teenage girl must travel into the forbidden Savage Zone to recover lost artifacts or her father’s life is forfeit.

America has been ravaged by a war that has left the eastern half of the country riddled with mutation. Many of the people there exhibit varying degrees of animal traits. Even the plant life has gone feral.

Crossing from west to east is supposed to be forbidden, but sometimes it’s necessary. Some enter the Savage Zone to provide humanitarian relief. Sixteen-year-old Lane’s father goes there to retrieve lost artifacts—he is a Fetch. It’s a dangerous life, but rewarding—until he’s caught.

Desperate to save her father, Lane agrees to complete his latest job. That means leaving behind her life of comfort and risking life and limb—and her very DNA—in the Savage Zone. But she’s not alone. In order to complete her objective, Lane strikes a deal with handsome, roguish Rafe. In exchange for his help as a guide, Lane is supposed to sneak him back west. But though Rafe doesn't exhibit any signs of “manimal” mutation, he’s hardly civilized . . . and he may not be trustworthy.

Review:  What to say about this book.....AMAZING!!! AWESOMENESS!!! Gosh there are so many words that do it justice! When I started this book I was immediately drawn into the world the author has created. When you read about how kisses shouldn't be given via mouth because of germs, I was like wow!! That would suck lol. The more I read the less I knew what was going on around me and the more I was drawn into the book. The characters are amazing as well, the names alone make them stand out and the way they are "mutated" is really imaginative and creative! Not only is this a book for the teenagers out there, it really is a book that can be read by all ages! There are moments where you will laugh, cry ( seriously cry, grab a box of tissue to keep handy!) and roll your eyes. Gosh Lane really gets you from the beginning, girl who is desperate to find her father, not only because of the ultimatum, but because she is worried about him. Rafe...am I allowed to say yum without being arrested lol? Because he is hotness but he takes some getting used to...me and my bad boys I tell you. Then there is Everson, who I am still trying to figure out. There are times when I want Lane and him to get together, but then he seems selfish, then there are moments when I'm like yea get with him!! But then again I want her with Rafe.......My brain is a mess  because of what happens at the end, I am anxiously awaiting the second installment of this book. I want to know where they went, how much time has passed, does anyone contact anyone??? So many questions left to be answered. Over all I would rate this book with five stars because it is just so awesome!!

Description: USA TODAY bestselling author Jeff Hirsch once again creates a futuristic world with stunning, dramatic realism.

A civil war rages between the Glorious Path--a militant religion based on the teachings of a former US soldier--and what's left of the US government. Fifteen-year-old Callum Roe and his younger brother, James, were captured and forced to convert six years ago. Cal has been working in the Path's dog kennels, and is very close to becoming one of the Path's deadliest secret agents. Then Cal befriends a stray dog named Bear and kills a commander who wants to train him to be a vicious attack dog. This sends Cal and Bear on the run, and sets in motion a series of incredible events that will test Cal's loyalties and end in a fierce battle that the fate of the entire country rests on.

Review: There were only a few chapters of this book for me to get a taste of it,  but I really didn't get into it. Granted I haven't read the whole book so I really cannot give a star rating for it and be honest, because who knows how I would feel halfway into it you know what I mean?

The third book in the Bar Code series, in which one girl struggles to escape the conformity of a dystopian world.

Just as in the original Bar Code Tattoo, the year is 2025 and the mysterious, ubiquitous, and seemingly omnipotent multi-national corporation, Global 1, is in power through their agent President Loudon Waters. But now this ominous situation is experienced through the eyes of sixteen-year-old Grace Morrow.
When Grace finds out that she's adopted, her biological father, who's the head of the Global 1 nano-bot injection project, urges her against getting the bar code tattoo when she turns seventeen. Stunned by the revelations, she goes home to find her adoptive family vanished, and she's determined to find them, turning to the anti-bar-code group Decode. As they uncover more information about tracking, Grace must hide deep underground and under cover, trying to discover information that will allow Decode to figure out what Global 1 is up to, and trying desperately to shut the organization down for good.

Review: Again like the previous book, I really cannot give an honest review, not only because there really isn't enough for me to have formed an opinion, but because I haven't read any of the other books in this trilogy. It does sound very interesting though so I may be heading to the library sometime soon.
