Author: Emily Suvada

Release Date: November 7, 2017
I’m super excited to be participating in the Sunday Street Team blog tour for THIS MORTAL COIL by Emily Suvada. This science fiction book was a wild ride for me, filled with so many twists and compelling characters!
Catarina Agatta is a hacker. She can cripple mainframes and crash through firewalls, but that’s not what makes her special. In Cat’s world, people are implanted with technology to recode their DNA, allowing them to change their bodies in any way they want. And Cat happens to be a gene-hacking genius.
That’s no surprise, since Cat’s father is Dr. Lachlan Agatta, a legendary geneticist who may be the last hope for defeating a plague that has brought humanity to the brink of extinction. But during the outbreak, Lachlan was kidnapped by a shadowy organization called Cartaxus, leaving Cat to survive the last two years on her own.
When a Cartaxus soldier, Cole, arrives with news that her father has been killed, Cat’s instincts tell her it’s just another Cartaxus lie. But Cole also brings a message: before Lachlan died, he managed to create a vaccine, and Cole needs Cat’s help to release it and save the human race.
Now Cat must decide who she can trust: The soldier with secrets of his own? The father who made her promise to hide from Cartaxus at all costs? In a world where nature itself can be rewritten, how much can she even trust herself?
Catarina Agatta is our resident gene-hacking badass. She is incredibly smart and loyal, and she’s on a mission to find a cure for the deadly Hydra virus taking over the world.
Cole Franklin is a Cartaxus soilder who helps Cat on her journey. He’s a blackout solider with a mysterious past, looking for answers to questions he doesn’t know.
This books has so much fantastic technology elements about DNA, hacking, and manipulating the human gene. It was so interesting, and all felt very believable. And coming from a non-sciencey person, the scientific elements were some of my favorite parts.
