First, although I received this as a free copy to review, I would encourage others to read this if they are interested in post-apocalyptic, dystopian, or general thrillers. I began the book last night and had to finish it this morning before I could do anything else. I did not realize there was a prior novel, Love Byte, which I will definitely read. I believe that this book combines realism with just a touch of science fiction. Unlike many series, this book tidied things up neatly so that the reader was not left bereft waiting for the next book to be published sometime in the future. If you are looking for a nice, enjoyable book that is a bit thought provoking, I would encourage you to read this book. I often wonder if some reviews are posted by family friends and I can tell you: I can’t even remember the author’s name. I will be adding it to my book list of authors to read in the future. I can’t promise you that it will put you on the edge of your seats, but I will say that it will leave you with something to think about. There is a pandemic flu in our future and this is just one example of how it could occur.
