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 in this thrilling sequel to This Mortal Coil, which New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman says "redefine's 'unputdownable.'"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 to 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.

I was delighted to jump back into the world Suvada started in This Mortal Coil. This Cruel Design has the difficult task that many adventurous sci-fi sequels do of bridging a debut novel to a raucous, satisfying finale. That said, it continued Suvada's breakneck, cliffhanger-heavy style that I loved so much in her first novel, and I'm intrigued with the world-building that TCD accomplished. The new characters that are introduced are engaging and further challenge Cat and complicate the world that she, her friends and even perhaps her enemies all want to save--if they can agree on how not to destroy it in the process. I can't wait for the last novel in this trilogy!
