Contagion Review

URGENT!contagion.jpg

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.

 

HOLY FUDGE!!!!! This book is amazing. It is no overstatement for me to say that this book is one of my favourite reads – ever. Teri Terry’s writing made me feel like I was with Callie, Shay and Kai every step of the way. I felt their pain, their joy and their fear. I am in love with this book.

A virus that has a fatality rate of 99% to all those that aren’t immune travels its way across the UK in a matter of days. Yet, everything is not as obvious as it seems. With secrets even the police don’t know, Shay, Kai and Callie try to discover the truth. The plot is addictive and fast-paced. I wanted more and more and more (I still do – when is the next book out????*).  It is very Sci-Fi/Dystopian yet it’s scary when you consider that this isn’t completely unrealistic. The twist at the end where we finally get some answers was unexpected but I loved it. It’s such a great concept. Having said that, not all my questions were answered and with this being a trilogy I’m going to have to wait for them (But seriously, when is the next book out???? I don’t care if this one hasn’t even been published yet, I need it.*)

Callie, Kai and Shay are like the three musketeers. I can’t imagine this book without any of the characters. I love them all. Shay is a feisty character, full of passion and talents – something that although she is embarrassed by, I am jealous of. Callie is revengeful; I felt her pain and can’t wait for her to get the revenge she so desperately needs. Kai is just amazing. I want to go on but I’m worried it will just be pages of me saying I love them. I felt part of their team as they try to solve what is happening. I kind of want them to be real.

This book is fast paced and captivating. It’s a perfect book, one that I will be reading again and again. I urge you to pick up a copy when this fantastic book is published. (Contagion by Teri Terry is published on the 18th May 2017 by Hachette.)

 

* I understand that books take time to write and publish but this need is strong. 😀

 

Note: I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book at YALC 2016. All views are my own.
