Synopsis

With Pandemic ravaging the globe, Olivya's psychic Sight compels her to see auras riddled with the colors of despair, and now her mother is infected. 

Olivya’s only hope is the mysterious Mikah, a powerful Empath who claims the Pandemic is linked to his clan, the Kindred, and their brooding, monstrous, Immortal Lord. But can she trust this boy who can manipulate her very emotions?

With Mikah's aid, Olivya races to unearth Kindred secrets, desperate to find a cure, only to discover the Pandemic is far, far more than a mere disease . .



My Thoughts


Fantasy is not a genre I read a lot.  Why? Because I like the basis of reality (yeah yeah, I know I read Zombie books but they are possible, honest!) and sometimes find it hard to wrap my head around the whole deal.  However, although The Apocalypse Gene is a fantasy novel, I didn’t find it difficult to be drawn into, and believe in the world created.

The characters are three-dimensional and real, and by the end of the book I had the feeling that I knew Olivya and Mikah like friends, and could fully imagine them in the world of Chicagoland and beyond.

The fantasy element in The Apocalypse Gene is engaging and thorough – I had no WTF-moments reading it, and the world created within is engaging, enthralling and completely believable.  The writing is so good, that even non-Fantasy lovers will find themselves drawn into the book, and you feel part of the story, rather than having the story told to you. 

I highly recommend this book to fantasy and sci-fi readers, young adult readers and anyone who wants a story that will suck you in and leave you with the feeling of having read a book that will stay with you for a long long time.
