I received this book for review from Sea Lion Books.
Summary: Why are the most elite black-ops forces chasing a 16 year old girl across the country? Why can't they find her? And why do they want to kill her? Because they think Lila Ellerman is a terrorist who released a deadly virus into the wild. But really, she's just a girl with a crush on a guy named Brandon.
Yes, she’s figured out the science of controlling anti-matter, but that doesn’t make her a criminal. Will she be able to protect her friends and keep them from being taken prisoner, or worse?
Thoughts: The issue is set in Montana 2025 and we are introduced to Lila Ellerman formally of The Marinus Labs. Like Brent from issue #1 she is a vitros. She is being hunted down because of what she is and her knowledge. But she's done nothing wrong or the criminal they claim she is. First off let me say the cover art for this issue is outstanding, I love it. Lila is very strong character, I enjoyed reading about her. Pariah #2 is another action filled story. If you love dystopian or futuristic stories you'll want to check this one out.
Score: 4 Stars
