Levin Davis couldn’t be described as anything but successful — a dream job, a happy relationship with an amazing girl, and an easy life. But then he learns that his father, already proclaimed dead, is alive and kicking. But there is more: he carries a powerful secret with him. He begins to check out the facts and what he discovers will be stunning to readers, as well as to this young man whose life is about to undergo the greatest test in history. Project Renovatio by Allison Maruska is a stunning opening to a series that will surely rock the world of fans of sci-fi, a work that offers a powerful scientific concept and rock solid, engaging characters.

Allison Maruska is an author to watch, a gifted writer with the rare knack for creating an unpredictable plot with unexpected surprises served throughout the book. I like the sense of mystery and suspense that permeates the work. You can’t guess what will happen next, but each time you ache to know, and the author makes you feel deep inside that what happens next will most likely blow your mind. The writing is elegantly crisp and enticing, and it’s a quality that readers will enjoy. I loved the characters and how they get to find out about each other. Levin Davis is well imagined and excellently portrayed throughout the story, and readers will love the way he handles the multi-level conflict that afflicts his life. If you love characters you can grow with, themes that excite your mind, and a plot that makes it difficult to put a book down, then Project Renovatio is the book you must read.

Project Renovatio by Allison Maruska is set in the future where everything and anything is possible. Levin Davis is a genius; he graduated from college at just 20 years of age. He has a girlfriend whom he loves and a job that promises a bright future. He believed that he had it all and, for a time, he did. However, the future had something sinister in store for him. When he finds out that his dead father is actually alive and living in secret, he knew something was up. Turns out there are other people just like him.

They are a part of a genetically engineered race that is meant to survive it all, but at a price. Project Renovatio is best for the people who can live on a tight leash. For those who don’t, their families are punished most severely. Levin does not want anything from this project. All he wants is his freedom, but that will come at a price. He can either escape, which is impossible, or he can fight. The choice is his!

This novel was incredibly intense and I loved every second of it. And the ending was so good! I just wished I could see more of Levin’s sister and I hope we get to see that in the next novel(s). Levin’s character was amazing; he was focused on surviving because he knew he had no other option. I loved the dialogues and there is no unnecessary information or descriptions. You will devour this novel in a couple of hours. Trust me! It is wonderful. I can't wait for the next book.
