Contagion by Teri Terry (Review)

contagion

 

URGENT!
An epidemic is sweeping the country.
You are among the infected. There is no cure; and you cannot be permitted to infect others. You are now under quarantine.
The very few of the infected who survive are dangerous and will be taken into the custody of the army.

Young runaway Callie survived the disease, but not the so-called treatment. Her brother Kai is still looking for her. And his new friend Shay may hold the key to uncovering what truly happened.

From the author of the international sensation Slated comes the first book in a powerful new story of survival and transformation; love and power.

This was a really enjoyable read. Very deep, complex and extremely well written.

The ending was rather abrupt, but this is part one of a trilogy, so I suppose that was to be expected.

The synopsis does a way better job than I can to explain what this is about, but I have to say that I really enjoyed the development of both the characters and the stories.

It was told from two perspectives, Callie (A ghost of some kind) and Shay (an ordinary girl pulled into this crazy world).

You would think that telling a story about a mysterious epidemic sweeping the nation from the viewpoint of the ghost of a victim of said epidemic would be confusing, but it really wasn’t. If anything it actually made perfect sense.

I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys stuff like “World War Z” or “The Girl With All The Gifts”, as it is a really well paced thrilling ride. I am really looking forward to the next installment!
