Review - Mortimus Walker and the Secret of the White City
Title: Mortimus Walker and the Secret of The White City
Author: Zach Turner
Released: May 20, 2013
Morty is a One. He's been laboring his entire life, but finally it's his sixtieth birthday. Time for him to retire his old body and travel up through the clouds to the White City where he'll begin his new life as a One-Two. He'll be given a new body and anything he wants as reward for his service. But once Processing begins, things don't go exactly as planned. Can Morty figure out the secret before he is lost in the System all over again?
I do not really enjoy futuristic books so was very sceptical while reading this. However, I found that it managed to hold my attention. It was well written with a good plot and a lot of twists and turns especially at the end.
Morty is a One and he moves to White City on his 60th birthday where he will get a new body. His memories though remain his.
I would not say the book is action packed but it builds up for the interesting end. Some unanswered questions in the book concerning the naming of the people but all in all a good read especially for futuristic fans.
