Review - The Fearless by Emma Pass

Title: The Fearless
Author: Emma Pass
Pages: 400
Publisher: RHCP Digital
Release date: 24th April 2014

Blurb from Goodreads:    

The Fearless. An army, powered by an incredible new serum that makes each soldier stronger, sharper, faster than their enemies. Intended as a force for good, the serum has a terrible side-effect - anyone who takes it is stripped of all humanity, empathy, love. And as the Fearless sweep through the country, forcing the serum on anyone in their path, society becomes a living nightmare.
Cass remembers the night they passed through her village. Her father was Altered. Her mother died soon after. All Cass has left is her little brother - and when Jory is snatched by the Fearless and taken to their hellish lair, Cass must risk everything to get him back.

My Review:

*I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Random House Children’s Publishers UK and Emma Pass*

3/5 stars

For seven years Cass has lived on Hope island ever since The Fearless stormed through the country. The Fearless were born from a cure for post-tramatic stress that stopped fear and got into enemy hands. Cass only has her brother left and when he is taken by the Fearless she will risk everything to get him back.

It took me a while to get into this and to start with I found Cass annoying. 
I really didn't like the love triangle. 
There were things that I saw coming and things that I didn't. 
I didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would.

Overall this only just gets three stars as I found it slightly disappointing.
