    One thought on “Incubation”

    1. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest review. I admit, I am not a typical reader of dystopic teen fiction. I have read the Hunger Games books and some of the other series, but most of the time they don't hold my interest. Incubation was different. Early on, the premise of this dystopia (bird flu mutation, famine, locust swarm, etc.) is firmly rooted in possibilities that are here and now. The responses to these events is highly possible, so I could easily believe t [...]

    2. I'm a fan of YA and have read a few YA dystopian-type series. This one is great so far! I had a hard time putting the book down. It moved at a pretty steady pace, rarely lagging. The main character, Everly Jax, is complex and likeable, smart and loyal. Her two best friends, Halla and Wyck, are equally likeable in different ways. The landscapes they live in and travel are at once desolate and threatening, thanks to previous pandemics, mutated locusts, the current government, outlaws, and the Defi [...]

    3. I love this genre, and I love what Laura DiSilverio did with this book. I couldn't put it down, and quickly picked up the next two in the series.

    4. This was an amazing book!!!! First off, I want to say that I don't read much YA. I read a few YA series, but I often have a hard time finding one that I can get through. I had no such problem with this one!!! One chapter and I was hooked! The world that was depicted in this book was amazing, complex, and ( my favorite) believable! We got to go on the journey along with Jax and her friends. You have a world that is crumbling and every one is in survival mode. Throw in a swarm of mutant locust and [...]

    5. Excellent YA novel in the dystopian future genre. Well developed characters and fleshed out world building, plenty of action and varied pacing.The imaginary future of the story sits rooted in present developments, bird flu, epidemics, medical research, scientific food and crop manipulation, pollution, famine, lawlessness and the reduction in numbers of babies being born in the developed world.I read many novel stories in this genre and this worked well.

    6. This book was a really pleasant surprise. I've been on a YA dystopia kick, particularly ones that are free or inexpensive on Kindle, and I had gotten pretty used to stereotypes and formulas. Incubation may have a few stereotypes but the worldbuilding is rich and deviates from the norm. The controlling government, rebel faction, and confused teenager just trying to get by sound like they're out of a recipe book, but Incubation has a fresh twist. Divergent meets Handmaid's Tale meets DESOLATE HELL [...]

    7. Fast-paced, intriguing, and unputdownable! I was immediately swept up in this action-packed dystopian tale, and loved the awesome, relatable main character, Everly. I appreciated the fantastic world-building and meaningful relationships. I definitely recommend this fascinating and original YA novel, reminiscent of chilling classics like The Handmaid's Tale.

    8. Laura DiSilverio has, in the past, primarily been a cozy mystery author. Incubation marks her debut in a new genre, and it is a very impressive one! This is Book One in an anticipated trilogy (Book Two, Incineration, came out in June of 2016, and Book Three can't be published soon enough for me).Incubation centers around the life and adventures of Everly Jax, a young woman who discovers that her future lies in leaving the only life she's ever known to enter the dangerous outside world. Luckily, [...]

    9. Incubation book 1 in the Incubation Trilogy by Laura DiSilverio is a futuristic dystopian fantasy book that is believable and hard to put down. It keeps you in suspense and on the edge of your seat as you run with Jax, Wyck and Halla to escape with them from the Kube. It is a fast moving and suspenseful read and whether you are a young adult or an adult you will enjoy this read.The world is not the same since the great epidemic. Children are taken from their famly and made to live in a Kube and [...]

    10. Everly Jax has grown up in a world that was ravaged by disease and famine. She never knew her parents ang grew up in sterile research facility. After discovering how she's had been controlled and lied to she and two of her friends escape. Halla is pregnant and looking for her boyfriend so they head to Atlanta. Can they make it? Jax is a brilliant bio-chemist, but she quickly adapts to this life on the run. I admired that she's able to adapt and develop new survival skills. I love a strong and co [...]

    11. What an fast paced adventure!!! The book was written for YA. As an adult, I found it an interesting and intriguing read.The main character is Everly Jax. She was different fromthe other children as she was dropped at the Kube. She was an infant without a name and no DNA in the data base could determine her parents. She is a smart, feistyyoung girl who decides seek out her parents.Her best friend, Halla needs to leave the dome as sheis pregnant. The government will take her baby if she stays. Wyc [...]

    12. Rather than let down her best friend, intelligent, yet naïve Everly Jax finds herself fleeing and fighting in the world of Amerada, outside the safety of her home dome. She is unprepared for what is awaiting her and her friends in this dystopian setting. Yet she is resourceful and wily and makes good contacts along her journey and misadventures.George Orwell and Robert Heinlein first introduced me to dystopian novels. And then I was hooked. This novel weaves an elegant story of 17-year-old Ever [...]

    13. Reunion Day is approaching and Everly Jax is excited about the possibility of learning who her parents are. Unfortunately, everything she hopes for is shattered that day and Everly instead escapes from her home in the Kube. Everly and her two best friends, Halla and Wyck, struggle to survive the dangers lurking in the outside world, but each one of them has a different goal in mind. Can they forge a path in a world outside the Kube? I love that Laura DiSilverio takes time to build up her charact [...]

    14. I received a copy for a honest review. I have read and enjoyed Laura DiSilverio's Readaholic's cozy mystery series. So I was quite happy to receive a copy of Incubation to review. When I find out an author I like writes in different genres I have to try them. I love to read and I read all types of books and to find out that an author I read writes in a different I am intrigue. I wasn't disappointed. With the first sentence I was hooked and stayed that way until the end. Everly Jax (learning how [...]

    15. I am a big fan of Laura DiSilverio's adult books, so I jumped at the chance to try her young adult dystopian book Incubation. I don't usually read dystopian books but a good story is a good story. I was so excited to to enter, and win, a contest for a book in exchange for a fair review.This is a fantastic story that grabs you right off the bat and doesn't let go. I immediately felt a connection to Everly Jax, not because I'm great at chemistry but because I love the ocean. This book is billed as [...]

    16. I literally just finished this book and was so excited to write a review. This book "Incubation" is the first in a trilogy written by Laura DiSilverio. It is classified as a young adult book, but truly is for adults also. It is set in the not so distance future after most of the world is destroyed by disease and war. The main characters are three teens Everly, Halla and Wyck who are living in a government run dome. Everly is desperate to find out who her real parents are. She was dropped off at [...]

    17. I'm a big fan of YA novels, particularly dystopian ones, and this novel is one of my new favorites. Everly, Halla and Wyck are a great trio of main characters. They each have very different personalities and very different reasons for breaking with the controlling society. Thanks to locusts, pandemics, criminals, and the military, the three of them are constantly in danger as they travel. They also have to be very careful about who they choose to believe and trust along their journey. There is a [...]

    18. What a great read! This is the first young adult book for author Laura DiSilverio, and she did a wonderful job with it.I love dystopian/young adult series, but I wasn’t sure how this one was going to play out with a bug on the cover. Well the locusts are only a small part of this story, which leads Everly Jax and her friends on a mission to escape the Kube. Of course there are bumps in the road on the escape, so I was wondering where this was going to lead them, but once they ran into Bulrush, [...]

    19. I received this book in exchange for honest review. I have to admit, I thought this was going to be just another YA dystopian saga. I was pleasantly surprised. The characters are robust and the plot is intriguing. Everly Jax is on a quest to find herself - but not in the way most young people her age do. She is looking for where she belongs, her roots, her family. In the process, she leaves the only home she's really known with two friends with quests of their own. Beyond the gates of their comp [...]

    20. I couldn't do it. I just could not prolong the torture and did not finish the book. I think I lasted through half; I gave honestly gave a valiant effort. It was clean, at least as much as I read. The plot was too dramatic and then too slow. There was no in between, it just jumped from one end of the spectrum to the next.

    21. Really good start to a series. I was looking forward to this book and was not disappointed at all. The story starts off a little slow but within a few chapters it really takes off and is constantly moving with plenty of suspense, action and intrigue. By the time you get to the end you will want more. Unfortunately, the rest of the series is not on Audible yet. Hopefully soon. It's a very entertaining and enjoyable solid story with enough twists to keep it interesting and me listening. Good cast [...]

    22. decent idea, not so much on the executionMain downfall of this novel is that it's written in first person. It removes all tension. You know from page 1 the main character survives everything. The story started off with an interesting, though standard, premise. But quickly went down hill. Exciting scenes we're quick and over with without any real tension and suspense. Then dialogue and plot in between major events dragged on in non vital story driven ways. Other than that, there are times the aut [...]

    23. Laura DiSilverio is a good author. Her writing easily draws you into the story and holds you to the end. Incubation has the feel of Hunger Games and Divergent, with vast appeal to YA readers. The story is fast paced from start to finish. My only qualm with the book is the language peppered throughout, teens in lustful kissing, and the use of Bible verses in the story. As a Christian, I thought the verses were an interesting addition, and thought for once I found an author who included a Christia [...]

    24. I really enjoyed the beginning of this but from the moment the trio escape from the Kube, it becomes far weaker in narrative and characterisation. Having started with some really well designed world building and characters, to devolve in such a way is disappointing beyond belief. The novel just ends up becoming a running away, one disaster after another with no depth or realism. The characterisations of the rebel group are generally fairly weak, with one or two exceptions and there is virtually [...]

    25. Sunday, June 25, 2017INCUBATIONLaura DeSilverio I originally bought this book because of the cover. I thought it was one of the pre-apocalypse type dealing with creepy bugs. Cool huh?Well, I was wrong and not only that it was a young adult novel. As I haven’t been a young adult in more years than I want to admitbut I digress. Anyway, I had started the book and found I couldn’t put it down, honestly. It was so good I kept reading and I am glad I did, it is an amazing book and now I have to bu [...]

    26. Great Read, Full Immersion! Aside from a couple grammatical errors, this book was fantastic! I truly enjoyed immersing myself into this complex and thoroughly fleshed out world. (I love Saben so much-just a side note) and Everly was a main character that did not irritate me after a couple of chapters. And the amount of people of color in this book was perfect and what I look forward to reading in today's books! I loved so much about this book and I will be reading on to see what happens. My grip [...]

    27. Can it really happen?A dystopian future?? Is that what our world is headed towards? A future that is grim and unbelievable - a world that convinces young women of childbearing age that it is for the good of their country they volunteer to be surrogate mothers and men are conscripted into military service without any chance to choose a better life for themselves. Forced to live in a tower with other undesirable offspring it is no wonder that they seek to leave on a mission that puts their lives i [...]

    28. The book was well written, the story clear. I just couldn’t connect with the characters. I’m not sure if it was the author or the voice actor, but most of the characters felt generic, little detail given. The only emotional moment that I really felt was toward the end, when one main character dis-owned another. Beyond that, it hearkened to The Handmaid’s Tale in story, while feeling like any typical YA dystopia. More of an adventurous journey, there were no story elements or twists I did n [...]

    29. Good!The book pulls you in with great world building and strong characters. The main character is very believable as she is not sure that she wants to take part in what is going on, but ultimately helps her friends when she discovers that she was lied to. She may not have had the best reasons for leaving, but as the book goes on, she becomes more and more sure that what she did was right.
