I read Prototype by M.D. Waters a few months ago and really enjoyed it. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen to “Emma” , Noah, Adrienne, and Declan. Find out what I thought about this final book in the Prototype Duology.

Emma looks forward to the day when she can let go of her past—both of them. After more than a year on the run, with clues to her parents’ whereabouts within her grasp, she may finally find a place to settle down. Start a new life. Maybe even create new memories with a new family.
But the past rises to haunt her and to make sure there’s nowhere on the planet she can hide. Declan Burke wants his wife back, and with a little manipulation and a lot of reward money, he’s got the entire world on his side. Except for the one man she dreads confronting the most: Noah Tucker.
Emma returns to face what she’s done but finds that the past isn’t the problem. It’s the present—and the future it represents. Noah has moved on and another woman is raising their daughter.
In the shocking conclusion to M.D. Waters’s spectacular debut, Emma battles for her life and her freedom, tearing down walls and ripping off masks to reveal the truth. She’s decided to play their game and prove she isn’t the woman they thought she was. Even if it means she winds up dead. Or worse, reborn.
About the Author
M.D. Waters lives in Maryland with her husband and two boys. She is a closet Housewives watcher, a wannabe goth-surfer with a side of nunchuck skills, and writes in her pj’s.
Oh, and she tweets too much.
When I first picked this book up I was super excited to continue to saga of “Emma”. I was also interested to see what would happen with Noah, and what the final few pages of the first book Prototype was talking about. Basically I had super high expectations and I couldn’t wait to get started on the book. As I was reading, however, I started to think “Wow, this isn’t as exciting as I thought it would be” and “Totally see where this is going”. I don’t want to say exactly what I am talking about because I am sure there are people who want to read this book and don’t want to be spoiled. Overall, I was completely underwhelmed with this book and expected a lot more especially after the first book.
The characters were continued from the first book, and not much more was developed with them. The relationships seemed to stay more or less the same, and nothing totally exciting and dramatic happened.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed this book and am definitely glad I was given the opportunity to read the conclusion to the duology. I would recommend reading both books if you are looking for a quick summer read.
Overall, I give this book:
3 out of 5 Hippos
