About the Book

Jadah McCoy’s ORGANIC pitched as Bladerunner meets Pitch Black, in which 18-year-old Syl has barely survived the genetic splicing that plagued her human body. After discovering the androids’ plot to wipe out human and Cull alike, Syl must return to Elite to warn the other survivors. However, with the realization that her group of survivors isn’t the only one, also comes the realization that some humans are just as bad as androids. Bastion and Syl grow closer, however, their relationship suffers under the weight of her past ghosts and a growing threat that endangers human and android alike.

My Review

I received this eBook from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. 

There is no doubt that I have added Jadah McCoy to my list of favourite authors. I am so excited to see where she takes Syl and Bastion from here.

Second books get such a bad rap, especially as they are the middle filler. So there can be this awkward lull between the three books.
While Organic was a little more subdued than Artificial was, it didn’t take away from the story itself.

Syl is a lot more emotional in this. Artificial, she was duty bound to her people and stayed pretty level headed but in Organic she was a lot more all over the place. But then again, who wouldn’t after dying and having your living mind uploaded into an artificial mind. She retains so much of her humanity and seems to forget she isn’t human anymore. Which was plainly obvious when she and Bastion found Blalock’s gang.
Also, as androids do not dream, the fact that she dreams when she is to shut down shows how much of her humanity remains.

I enjoyed watching Bastion open up and gain his Glitch stripes. Before he was cautious and didn’t really reveal much about himself, but with Syl, he bloomed and even tried cracking a few jokes. It’s clear how important Syl is to him.

It was great to see more of the world that Ms. McCoy has built. Kepler seems to resemble Earth in many ways but way, way more endless desert. Much of the book is Syl and Bastion travelling through these different biomes, so it was interesting to see the planet and the world around them.

Holy cliffhanger batman! Seriously. It was getting good and then BAM! Ended. I was never so disappointed in a cliffhanger in my life. Then the book hangover. Oh, the woes!

Either way, it entices me to keep reading and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

About the Author


Jadah currently lives in Nashville, TN and works as a legal coordinator. When not babysitting attorneys, she can be found juicing her brain for creative ideas or fantasizing about her next trip out of the country (or about Tom Hiddleston as Loki – it’s always a toss up when she fantasizes.)

She grew up in rural Arkansas, yet can still write good and sometimes even wears shoes! She did date her first cousin for a while but they decided against marriage for the sake of the gene pool.

Her true loves are elephants, cursing, and sangria – in that order. If you find an elephant that curses like a sailor whilst drinking sangria, you’re dangerously close to becoming her next romantic victim – er, partner.

She cut her writing teeth on badly written, hormone-driven fanfiction (be glad that’s out of her system), and her one true dream is to have wildly erotic fanfiction with dubious grammar written about her own novels. Please make her dreams come true.
