First, the virus took Kaelyn’s friends. Then, her family. Now it’s taken away her home.
But she can't look back—the life she once had is gone forever.
deadly virus has destroyed Kaelyn’s small island community and spread
beyond the quarantine. No one is safe. But when Kaelyn finds samples of a
vaccine in her father's abandoned lab, she knows there must be someone,
somewhere, who can replicate it. As Kaelyn and her friends head to the
mainland, they encounter a world beyond recognition. It’s not only the
“friendly flu” that’s a killer—there are people who will stop at nothing
to get their hands on the vaccine. How much will Kaelyn risk for an
unproven cure, when the search could either destroy those she loves or
save the human race?
Megan Crewe's second volume in the Fallen
World trilogy is an action-packed journey that explores the resilience
of friendship, the ache of lost love, and Kaelyn’s enduring hope in the
face of the sacrifices she must make to stay alive.
Yay for Canadian YA authors. I so enjoyed the first book in the series and I can't wait for the next one. It's all wonderfully creepy and mysterious and sad. :) So much of the first book was all about Kaelyn and her struggle to survive and keep those around her safe. I hope the second will be more of the same with a little more action and suspense. :) And I love the cover, it's big and bold and draws the eye (like the first with all of its bright yellow biohazard look).
