A deadly virus has been created and sent out into the world with a sole purpose of ending a brutal war.
Dr. Deanna Nichols created a vaccine to end said virus; however this vaccine has severe side effects. The trouble is, she is also responsible for the creation of said virus, which leads us into the story. Unfortunately everyone in the world is tainted by either the virus or the vaccine. At least until the General receives a call from a maximum security prison they didn’t know was still active reached out looking for supplies.
Deanna is sent to the prison with only a guard to a former war leader who’s also a criminal in the prison. She wants to save all the already infected people. He wants to create something of a new race. What Deanna doesn’t know is the criminals are staging an escape. Will the war leader be able to help Deanna and save her from being captured, or worse, killed?
I had a hard time getting into this book from the beginning of it. The story seemed to jump into a scene that left off from another book, almost like I was left with “what did I miss before this?” It was hard to understand what was happening and who the characters were until about the 2nd or 3rd chapter. The story is fun but I personally had a hard time reading it and enjoying the story.
Dr. Deanna Nichols is a geneticist searching for a cure to save the world. After the war nearly destroyed it by releasing an aggressive virus, it was the vaccine that killed the humanity’s chances for progress and survival. Deanna feels guilty because she has participated in creating the vaccine, and General Mackenzie never lets her forget that.
Their luck changes when they are contacted by the convicts held in a secret military prison hidden in the arctic desert. The C deviance criminals are willing to negotiate and provide unaffected DNA samples in exchange for supplies and a visit paid by the doctor herself. Suddenly there’s hope, so Deanna embarks on a dangerous journey to a grittier reality than she had expected.
Could a woman alone save the world?
