SPARK (Spark #1 ) by Rachel Craw How would you react if  you knew your DNA had been altered? This is the experience for  Evie, who is one day an ordinary seventeen year old, grieving for her mother. The next, she’s a Shield, the result of a decades-old experiment gone wrong, bound by DNA to defend her best friend from an unknown killer.”(publisher’s blurb”). Check out Rachel Craw’s trilogy Spark, Stray & her new release Shield.

JUMP (Twinmaker #1) by Sean Williams is a really intriguing look into the future of technologies and the fabrication and enhancement of goods and the changing impact of this society on our identiies.

ILLUMINAE (Illuminae #1) This is a great read if you enjoyed the 100 by Kass Morgan. Think artificial intelligence, intergalactic consipiracy and warfare.
