Book Review: Untamed by Madeline Dyer

Untamed is a YA dystopian book about a world where most of the people take ‘augmenters’. These people are known as the ‘Enhanced’ (though they have a different name for themselves) and are trying to convert the remainder of ‘Untamed’ humanity to be like them. The ‘Enhanced’ live safe, idyllic lives, at the cost of their emotions. They can feign emotions with their augmenters, just as they can give themselves many other traits, but the emotions are not real. The ‘Untamed’ refuse to lose their humanity for the so-called safety the ‘Enhanced’ offer.
