Hello everyone... it's time for another post for our second month of Blogger Talk, Novel Exposed!! Today we have a exciting and very different, yet fun interview with Partials author, Dan Wells. We hope you'll enjoy it, as much as we have.

A quick message: Jessica (Confessions of a Bookaholic) and I would love to thank everyone who participated in last months discussion. We're still working out the kinks of this new feature for both of our blogs, but we believe it's been a great addition for each of us. We hope you guys will continue along with us for the journey as we bring you new and exciting books and authors each month.

Title: Partials (Partials, #1)
Author: Dan Wells
Publisher: Balzer + Bray, 472 Pages (February 28th, 2012)
Add Partials to: Goodreads
Order Here: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository

Synopsis: Humanity is all but extinguished after a war with partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the world’s population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island. The threat of the partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to the disease in over a decade. Humanity’s time is running out.

When sixteen-year-old Kira learns of her best friend’s pregnancy, she’s determined to find a solution. Then one rash decision forces Kira to flee her community with the unlikeliest of allies. As she tries desperately to save what is left of her race, she discovers that the survival of both humans and partials rests in her attempts to answer questions of the war’s origin that she never knew to ask.

Top 5 Interview:

1. Give us 5 words you would use to describe Kira?

Smart, Brave, Reckless, Temperamental, Determined

2. 5 words you would use to describe the "world" we see in Partials?

Decaying, Empty, Overgrown, Dangerous, Waiting

3. Tell us 5 ways we would know someone is a Partial?

1-They're stronger, faster, and tougher than a human.
2-They're trained in battle.
3-They heal at a superhuman rate.
4-They can communicate silently with other Partials, which also means:
5-You can tell someone's a Partial if you are a Partial yourself

4. The 5 major survival skills humans would need in order to stay safe.

1-Stay away from old houses; most of them lack steel construction and could collapse if you're not careful.
2-You can find water almost everywhere, but make sure you purify it first. The Old World put a lot of scary chemicals into the soil.
3-Most canned food is still good, so you can find food almost anywhere (but watch out for cans that are bloated or swollen--they've gone bad).
4-Stay away from Partials at all costs.
5-Partials aren't the only bad guys. Wild animals have reclaimed most of the planet, and unscrupulous humans might be the most dangerous threats of all.

5. What are 5 symptoms of the RM virus?

1-Intense fever.
2-Loss of bodily fluids (mucus, urine, sweat), and with that the threat of dehydration.
4-Loss of muscular control.
5-Destruction of the immune system.

Thanks so much for taking the time out of your busy touring schedule to stop by today and be part of this months Blogger Talk. It was great to have you here, you're more than welcome anytime and we're looking forward to having you stop by again later this week when we share some favorite quotes with everyone.

  2. Nice interview. I liked how he described his world as "waiting". It made me wonder what the world was waiting for.

  3. Awesome choices for this Q&A! I loved Partials and I'm hoping and waiting for book 2.
