Extraction has some Hunger Game qualities; the Core and iits Developers are very similar to the Capitol, and the Earth levels are very similar to the Districts. It also has some Divergent similarities with Clem being allergic to the injection that subdues all of the extracted thus making her different from most of the citizens. Clementine is also a rebellious strong female who fights for the underdog even though she has a attained a better life for herself. I would have liked it more if it had been a stand alone title. I'm tired of series and felt that this one just went on a little too long. Having said that, I'll still be interested in reading book two which is sure to involve a reappearance of Sam and Commander Charlie, as well as hopefully Fred. I also predict that Marden will play a big role in the second book.
