Review: Born to Fight by Tara Brown

SYNOPSIS:Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]

Highly anticipated sequel to the number one bestselling novel, Born.

Twenty years ago scientists made some remarkable discoveries with genetics and the ability to perfect the babies we gave birth to.

Ten years ago the governments of the world made a hard choice, earth or people.

Nine weeks ago the choices they made came full circle.

Fourteen days ago the truth of their mutations leaked out into the borderlands and other areas.

Yesterday the worst thing they ever made learned about what she was.

Today she’s coming for them and she knows about the strengths they gave her.

Tomorrow she plans on destroying everything.

She plans on starting with her own creator. Her own father.


This was an excellent sequel; however, it fell short in comparison to Born. Born to Fight starts right where Born left off how, this book does not end on an epic cliffhanger. This one is more centered around how Emma has become soft since Jake, Will, and the whole crew have entered her life. Instead of this kick-*ss fighter, you see her dealing with feelings and emotions that she previously didn’t have to worry about. You see her struggling to choose between Will and Jake…totally team Will over here.

Anyways, Emma struggles with her emotions and is constantly in a state of having to prove herself to people who think she is a monster and having to run from people trying to capture her and do experiments. Overall, I loved the book and I enjoyed seeing the characters progress and further develop. There are some confusing scenes and scenes where I wish a fight would have broke out but instead, Emma stayed level headed and didn’t act on opportunity. The book ends with Will being a lying man-wh*re and my only hopes are he seeks some redemption because in the apocalypse people deserve a happy ending!
