A book a day...keeps insanity away! I am an avid book reader. When I am not reading, I love to play the piano, sing, or shop until I drop! Reading has been a huge part of my life since I was young and my Mom introduced me to the public library! Since then I have not stopped reading! I hope you enjoy my reviews!
Professor Mitch Pine knows all too well the history of epidemics, so the startling new information he’s discovered has him racing to the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta. Mitch has uncovered a startling pattern: dramatic environmental changes always occurred prior to devastating outbreaks, and current climate change may be such a catalyst. But before his plane lands, Mitch’s journey takes a terrifying turn. He is intercepted by a woman who represents a dangerous faction whose interest in Mitch’s research opposes his mission to save lives. To secure Mitch’s cooperation, his research assistant is being held hostage. With so many lives on the line, Mitch embarks on a turbulent trip around the world, uncovering pieces of the puzzle until he ultimately holds the key to prevent—or precipitate—global devastation. Unless he can find a way to stop the lunatics behind his abduction, a plague the likes of which the world has never known will be unleashed.
Luke literally pulled me into this wild ride and didn't let me off until I had finished the entire book. And it was sooooo good you guys! This is an insane ride of action and suspense like no other I have read before. I was so worried I would get bored with all of the scientific stuff that is really quite over my head, but Luke does a fine job of shelling out the info in a way the reader can understand and apply towards the storyline. And this one is a doozy! I mean, Mitch's assistant is kidnapped, he has been kidnapped...and we really are not completely sure why? It isn't all adding up and I felt like there was a key component I was missing! I liked the edge of the seat suspense and overall flow of the story. Some of my favorite characters were the ones with small parts in the book, but I would love to learn their stories as well. I am crossing my fingers for Hiru's and Sissy's stories. Hopefully Luke has more to write than just this one hurrah with these characters. This is one fantastic book and I suggest finding a comfy chair to read it in, because you won't be getting up for a long while!
