Road to Eugenica ♥ Interview, Review & Giveaway ♥

Road to Eugenica 

Yesterday, Drea Smith couldn’t do anything spectacular—even walking and texting at the same time was a challenge. But today, she suddenly has more answers than Google, can speak and understand numerous languages, and she can fight. Like a boss.

Seriously cool.

Drea has no idea where her encyclopedic knowledge has come from, but she’ll take it when she discovers someone out there knows her secret and wants her badly. And that they’ve been searching for her since she was born.

Since she was created.

With the help of her best friend Dylan, who just wants to keep her safe, and Maddox, a mysterious new boy who is prepared to get her answers, Drea will have to push her new skills to their limit as she uncovers nothing is quite what it seems.

As she uncovers…Eugenica.

Question One: What was your inspiration behind this book?
This book was inspired in two parts. One was by my niece. She got me started reading and loving YA books, and after one of her favorite series ended in a way that, let’s say really upset her. I promised her I’d write her a book. I wanted a MC that had some of the same qualities as my niece and also has an arc where she discovers she’s stronger than she thinks. (And not just physically stronger.)
The second part of inspiration came from an internet ad about The Home of the Future. It was just a photograph of a high-tech house, but it made me stop and think, what would our society be like if we not only valued technology, but also a love and preservation of the environment? Those questions lead me to creating Eugenica.
Question Two: What genre would you classify your book to be?
Road to Eugenica has a little romance, mystery, suspense, and action but when I picture it on the bookshelf I always see it in the Science Fiction section.

Question Three: Who was your favourite character and why?
I know this should be a tough question, but really it isn’t. And while I of course adore all my characters, I have to say, Dylan is my favorite. While we’re in Drea’s perspective in Road to Eugenica we don’t really get to see all the cogs working inside Dylan’s head. He’s such a deep and complex character. I’m really excited that in book two we will get to see things in his perspective too. (Hint. Hint.)

Question Four: What did a normal day in Alexandrea's life look like before the book?
A normal day for Drea would be that of most teens. School, homework, hanging out with friends (or in her case Dylan) and of course her favorite hobby photography. If it was a weekend she’d most likely be on one of her mini-adventures with Dylan where they just go and do something away from the norm. Apple picking in hill country, heading to the Mexican border, or going anywhere Drea can capture some good shots for her gallery in her room.
Question Five: What can we expect next?
Well, like I mentioned before we can expect to get deeper into Dylan’s head in the next book. He’s going to be one of the perspective characters, and I can’t tell you how much fun it is to see things through his eyes. Lots more Eugenica. Their world. Their rules. Their future. And more twists and turns I hope the reader won’t necessarily expect, but will make sense to the story. Sorry. No spoilers. 

I have mixed feelings about the Road to Eugenica. It was so outside the box and not what I expected. I was hooked on every page because I wanted to find out what was happening, but also a little scared to keep reading.

Alexandrea seems like an ordinary girl. She's in love with her best friend and trying her best to tackle high school. The day a new boy, Maddox starts school everything starts to get a little strange. She can suddenly understand and speak foreign languages. She isn't struggling with her education and she seems to know things she hasn't learnt. Dylan, her best friend has always been a big part of her life, but the new boy has caught her eye. Alexandrea's life is about to get crazy and not in a good way. Her happy bubble is about to be popped and there is no going back. Nothing is what it seems. No one can be trusted. She wants answers, but her life may be in danger.

Road to Eugenica is a suspense mystery like no other. Two dimensions and one link. It's strange and interesting. It's like nothing else I've read.
*There will be a sequel to this book and the next book will make or break this story.

3.5 stars out of 5. This book had me wanting more all the way through, but I'm not sure I liked the consequences.

*I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
