VanderMeer brings us another creepy, apocalyptic novel with a twist. The whole world is beat, stricken, and frail, overrun by monsters created by a biotech firm called the Company. Rachel and Wick, human survivors, must scratch out a life as the human race has been depleted and some people have morphed into inhuman creatures. While scavenging, Rachel finds a baby monster named Borne, who she decides to raise. When a rift forms over Wick’s distrust of the quickly-growing Borne, Rachel must choose who she will trust. Who can she trust?! -Allen— From Spring Booknotes 2017
