This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada Review

Hello, Lovelies!
Today I am reviewing the second book in the This Mortal Coil series, This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada! If you want to check out my review for the first book in the series, you can find it here. I hope you enjoy this review, leave your thoughts below!


Cat thought the Hydra epidemic was over, but when new cases pop up, Cat must team up with an enemy to fix the vaccine before the virus spirals out of control.
The nightmare of the outbreak is finally over, but Cat’s fight has only just begun.
Exhausted, wounded, and reeling from revelations that have shaken her to her core, Cat is at a breaking point. Camped in the woods with Cole and Leoben, she’s working day and night, desperate to find a way to stop Lachlan’s plan to reprogram humanity. But she’s failing—Cat can’t even control her newly regrown panel, and try as she might ignore them, she keeps seeing glitching visions from her past everywhere she turns.
When news arrives that the Hydra virus might not be as dead as they’d thought, the group is pushed into an uneasy alliance with Cartaxus to hunt down Lachlan and fix the vaccine. Their search takes them to Entropia, a city of genehackers hidden deep in the desert that could also hold the answers about Cat’s past that she’s been searching for.
But when confronted with lies and betrayals, Cat is forced to question everything she knows and everyone she trusts. And while Lachlan is always two steps ahead, the biggest threat to Cat may be the secrets buried in her own mind.


If there’s one thing Emily Suvada can do, its write a book that leaves you winded and wondering what the fork is going to happen next. While I love not knowing what will happen next, the sheer amount of plot twists in this book, were astounding. I couldn’t even wrap my head around one before being hit with another. I loved the science and exhilaration of it all but some things, Cat and Cole’s relationship for one, were pushed aside for these bigger revelations. I feel like things made important by the last book, were not given as much emphasis here. I love the plot and I cannot wait to see how it ends, but I would love more character growth and conversation instead of it being 90% action.
