Holy crap. The ending to this two-book series is a jaw-dropper. My only minor gripe is that the contagion running amok isn‘t as big a focus for the majority of this book compared to the first book, but Bowman delivers a logical progression from the events of the first book. She deserves praise for avoiding a sequel that could have been a simple retread. This series has locked me in as a fan, so I‘ll be reading more of Erin Bowman‘s books.
