WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: There were a couple of holes in the story. I think it was the middle of the second book before I fully understood what a Partial was. Throughout the first book, people referred to the Partials as machines, and not human. They were built and engineered to look eighteen years old. They don't age, they don't procreate; so throughout the first book I thought as a Partial as an "it". But throughout the other books you begin to learn that even though Partials aren't technically born, they still have fear, empathy, love; and you begin to wonder what really is the difference between a Partial and a human.
BOOK TRAILER: This is easily one of the best Book Trailers I have found. It is Paragen created propaganda for Partials. While it doesn't give you the details of the book series, it definitely peaks your interest.
