Official Summary: “A viral epidemic has wiped out 99% of the world’s population leaving scientist Heather Morgan to fight off thieves and scrounge for food and shelter near Denver, Colorado. When Heather befriends the young, naïve Jodi, she learns that a biotech company in San Francisco is rumored to have created a vaccine. Together, the women trek by foot to find the lab.
After suffering a near-fatal attack, Heather and Jodi find a safe haven on a farm with two young men, Cam and Elliot. Their security is short-lived, however, when irrevocable consequences threaten Heather’s mission. Will Heather be able to overcome loss and tragedy to find the vaccine or will she let sorrow overtake her and turn back? How many lives are worth the risk for a hope that rests in only a rumor? ” – Goodreads
Review: I did not expect how that panned out and that cliffhanger at the end. *shakes fist* The story can be brutal in places but what do you expect when the world has gone from billions of people to thousands. It going to make people more desperate, more cruel.
There wasn’t anything overly unique about the story, virus hits, people die. Some survive. That said the writing was good and so was the story. I enjoyed reading it, the ending left enough there for you to want to read the rest in the series if the Author continues. With that ending, I would be surprised if the Author didn’t.
