The book starts with Lain Fisher, who is a young Mindwalker waking up in hospital bed in IFEN, without remembering any events of the past few months. Lain is confused and suspicious of her surrounding finding herself in the IFEN center with no answers from Dr. Swan, her mentor who also happens to be her Guardian. Then all of a sudden she is kidnapped from IFEN by Steven and other Blackcoats who terrorize the IFEN building. With no memories of the past few months she is unable to understand the situations around her and when she Finds Ian, her best friend she is relieved and is notified that this is in fact her rescue mission. When she lands in Canada and tries to regain her memories, she discovers her true identity and thus begins the actual journey of freedom and her mission to help make the United Republic of America an equal country for all individuals with no type.
Loved the concept and the take on Type system of differentiating people from one another. The book is based in a very developed technological era and the concepts of mind walking and memory erasing are mind-blowing. The technology described in the book had me hooked and Ian and Lain’s friendship and dedication to change the world facing all odds is like a ray of hope when someday in the real world someone like Lain would demolish the discrimination of caste and class and type.
