Welcome to my blog spot- grab a cup of coffee and a good book ;-)
5 Pandemic Stars
This book was so refreshing, new and different!
It was The Last of Us meets Outbreak.
This post apocalyptic novel follows young adult, Paige Anderson, a scientist who goes on a spar-of-the-moment summer vacation with her friends when a deadly and incredibly fast-moving pandemic breaks out worldwide practically overnight.
What starts out as a fun reunion of old friends, soon becomes a fight for her life as she tries to survive--attempting to avoid both the HAVI flu virus and the chaos of the world as they once knew it left in its wake--alongside romantic interest, swoony Navy S.E.A.L. Keith Reynolds.
I loved everything about this book. It was entertaining, heart-wrenching, funny, and down-right heart-pounding. I loved the connection between Paige and Keith, the friendship between Sarah and Paige, and the world building and character building in general. Ms. Nightingale did a fabulous job covering all the bases and describing both the virus and the state of the world in the days following the outbreak.
It was realistic and well-written, and left me in both awe and intrigue.
If you’re looking for a page turner of viral proportions, grab this book today and get lost on the pages of Black Tears. You’ll soon see what I mean!
