She has so much to learn. The writing is so vividly descriptive that you literally inhale the pages. As far as the characters go, I was continually, and often pleasantly, surprised by their actions. That’s it, this book is gross. Published February 8th by Grand Central Publishing. I also felt that the two additional points of view besides the important leads Pressia and Partridge — the POVs of El Capitan and Lyda — detracted from the narrative, especially since neither brought much to the table besides access to additional intrigue that the reader did not need to know.
It was like looking at stills from a black and white horror film — destruction on a scale I had never seen before, fragments of the devastation captured on paper and stuck into a book. Set in a dystopian future, those who live inside the Dome are guarded by strict rules and regulations, Partridge longs to escape and find out the truth about the world they all left behind. Pressia’s Grandfather tells her she must escape, she knows they will be looking for her, so she turns to an acquaintance for somewhere to hide.
On to the next semi-fantasy book bubble, please. I think it’s also due to the fact that Fuse is the middle book in the series and those often seem to fall short of the first book. I always knew Lyda had a tough streak in her, but in this one, me-ow!
It will be hard for Baggott to top this masterpiece. Or you can watch The Matrix and Wall-E. The setting is so very disturbing. On the day of the detonations, millions were killed and the survivors were left with scars, amputated limbs, and deformities.

Yet Partridge, whose father is one of the most influential men in the Dome, feels isolated and lonely. Descriptions of how humans are fused with objects, other humans, or the earth itself is, without a doubt, one of the weirdest dystopian imaginings, but you know what? A doll-face for a hand!

But once you bqggott your brain down and pretend you have never taken science lessons in your life, things become a bit more tolerable.
She’s not the only character we get to know as there are multiple perspectives visited during the story. It’s on rare occasion that I can come to like and connect with every single POV in a book that has so many. In a similar vein, there are a couple of scenes that read awkwardly to me, given the physical condition of juliannna characters. Aug 10, Devin rated it really liked it.
Aug 29, Mizuki rated it it julixnna ok Shelves: Fuse is wonderful addition to the Pure trilogy, and I can’t wait until the final book. Longer review to come.

A doll-face for a hand as her biggest fusion, Pressia came out pretty lucky. Shouldn’t they both die of transplant dd or something already? Lyda, on the other hand, I thought was fairly pointless, and the chapters about her basically bored me.
They held my interest the most. My problem with Pure was that it aimed to evoke only one – disgust. What’s grosser than that?
Religion plays a minor role in this book, where we have people who worship the Dome.

But post-apocalyptic life with all the food shortages, diseases, no order, no normalcy, mutants—like really nasty looking mutant-y mutants—and horrible ways to die around every corner? I love being everywhere at once, getting everyone’s perspectives, motives, and intentions. How does he get the codes required to launch the nuclear arsenal? This is where Julianna Baggott succeeds the most: I eventually started liking Partridge too, even though that took a while, but Pressia never really came alive for me.

Tarde como un mes, pero por fin lo termine. Pressia and Partridge are the most common. Ermm, can I just give Glassings a shout-out! The baggtt people that survived intact were in the Dome, a protected enclave of people libri known as Pures.
Puor are the select privileged, protected, their skin perfect. Books by Julianna Baggott. Pressia, El Capitan, Partridge, Lyda; everyone is back, and it was good to be back. This is taken directly from the back cover:
