Review: Quanta by Lola Dodge

Series: The Shadow Ravens #2
Publication Date: October 13th 2015
Publisher: Ink Monster LLC
Genre: YA, Dystopia 
Amazon ~ Goodreads ~ B&N

Synopsis: Just because Quanta can see the future doesn’t mean she can change it. She’s spent most of her life imprisoned, feeding her captors information to keep herself alive, but she’s finally reached the endgame and her death creeps closer by the moment.

The son of two senators, Altair Orpheus leads a life of privilege that provides the perfect cover for his side job: working with the rebel Shadow Ravens to undermine the ruling Seligo government. Everything is running like clockwork until he crosses paths with Quanta. As he watches her deftly maneuver through life in a perverse prison, his plastic heart melts. A jailbreak would be suicide, but Tair is willing to sacrifice everything to give her a chance at happiness.

Now Quanta senses a terrifying new future brewing. She and Tair are bound together, but every image of them kissing, snuggling, and acting knee-weakeningly happy is balanced by a much darker possibility. They’ll be picture perfect together, but only until time rips them apart. How can she follow her heart when she’s seen how their love plays out?

My Rating
4/5 stars

My Review
"One way or another, Altair Orpheus was going to destroy me."

Quanta was absolutely amazing! Filled with lots of action, great characters and a fantastic romance.

A prisoner, used for her gift of seeing the future. Quanta has no hopes of ever getting out alive. Until Altair Orpheus, a geneticist joins the team of researchers assignment to Quanta. Quanta can't see anything about the boy's past or future, until they touch. With a rush of emotions, Quanta gains new powers with Tair around, as well as a glimpse of their romantic future together.. that is, if they can get out alive.

I am already obsessed with this series, I thought Cipher was amazing but this book was even better. The author really impressed me, I've read books in the past about time travel where the character returns to the same(ish) spot and it just felt very repetitive and boring, but Lola Dodge managed to make every time interesting and action packed.

The pace of this book is very slow at first but at about 50% in is where the action starts to take place. From there, the plot really picks up, and I could not put the book down without finishing it.

I am absolutely in love with Quanta's character. She is so smart and brave. Absolutely everything she does is logical, she takes her time to glance into the futures and pasts to sort out what she needs to do to ensure she's on the right path.

The relationship between the two characters was fantastic to read about. While I'm not a fan of insta-love, the chemistry between these characters was brilliant. Quanta knew they were matched and will most likely end up together but she still tried her hardest not to fall in love, and when it was inevitable she tried to save him from her.

I love everything about this book, if the beginning was a bit more action packed I would have given this book 5 stars, but it was very close. I can't wait to see what happens to Quanta and Tair next.

Happy Reading,
- Aneta
