Subject A36 (The Colony #1)
Expected Publication Date: February 13th, 2020
Genre: YA Dystopian/ Sci-Fi
Publisher: Black Rose Writing
If genetic engineering could guarantee you and your family perfect health and unparalleled beauty, would you pay top dollar for it? Would you kill for it?
Residents of the Colony would. And do.
Only the Insurgents can stop them.
Asher Solomon is a premier operative with the Insurgents. He and his team have rescued countless hostages, saving them from painful deaths in Colony labs as desirable genetic traits are stripped from their bodies.
He’s also suffered more losses than anyone should have to.
Then Asher gets intel that might give his people the upper hand. The Colony is searching for Subject A36. If the Insurgents determine the subject’s identity first, they might be able to turn the tide of the war.
Asher and his team embark on their riskiest mission ever, and the stakes have never been higher. But even if he survives the physical dangers, the devastating secrets he uncovers might destroy him.

My Review of Subject A36
Wow, Teri Polen has given us an absolute gem with Subject A36! This is one Sci-Fi you won’t want to miss. It is also a quick read.
The characters in this book are young, but they are living in an adult dystopian world. For me, it makes the kids more relatable on a lot of levels. I loved every second of getting to know Asher and the gang.
There are so many surprises, twists, and turns throughout this novel that it was a bit hard to keep up sometimes. Of course, this could be related to the fact that I couldn’t get through the words fast enough in my attempt to find out the next part!
The action sequences are something right out of a movie. They were crystal clear and exciting as well. The beginning was the typical get to know the characters trope, but by the latter part of the middle, I was so engrossed that I couldn’t concentrate on anything else around me.
When the backstory started to emerge, I was blown away. This series is going to be incredible, and I will definitely be along for the ride. I must know what happens next in this saga.
I am happy to award Subject A36 4 stars out of 5, but only because the beginning drug just a bit and I had a hard time keeping myself engaged. Though after the first few chapters, I was hooked and couldn’t get enough.
Thank you to the author, publisher, and Shannon of R&R Book Tours for providing me with a copy of Subject A36 in exchange for an honest review.
Excerpt from Subject A36
“Asher!” Mom gripped the porch railing and called for me. Her voice cracked and was laced with tears. Dad vaulted over the porch railing, landed solidly on the grass, and frantically scanned our expansive yard.
My stomach clenched. Something was very wrong. “Over here!”
Dad’s gaze locked on mine. “Code Exodus! Now, Asher. Run!”
Was this another drill? We’d practiced twice a week, the times always unexpected, without fail for as long as I could remember. Drills were a regular part of our life, like eating, sleeping, and homework. Protocol was pounded into our brains. There could be no hesitation.
But this felt different. Dad’s expression was tight and urgent. Tears streamed down Mom’s face, and I knew. This was no drill. It was real this time. We’d been found. Code Tribe—we leave together. Code Exodus—we leave without our parents.
Code Exodus rules.
Grab the backpack.
Don’t stop for anything or anyone.
Run to the Wallaces.
When my sisters could no longer keep up, hide them and keep running
