In a world before The Program…
Quinlan McKee has spent her life acting as other people. She was a closer—a person hired to play the role of the recently deceased in order to give their families closure. Through this process, Quinn learned to read people and situations, even losing a bit of herself to do so. But she couldn’t have guessed how her last case ...more
More lists with this book...
Quinn's story has been captivating from the first page. There's so much she doesn't know and seeing the layers slowly peel back had me hooked right away. Of course I loved Deacon and their entire situation. There is a core group of characters and each of them have been enjoyable in their own way.
The overall plot could definitely be depressing and heartbreaking. While it is those things to a point, Suzanne adds levity ...more
I absolutely love Young's ability to write raw harsh characters and circumstances and to do it so beautifully that you almost forget the tough subject matters and characters.
This spin off series and its predecessor have quickly become a favorite of mine and one that I just can't seem to get enough of.
Fantastical, fascinating, and completely compelling, it had me once again hooked from the first page as Quinn's journey continues where The Remedy ended.
I absolutely adore Young's ...more
This series just keeps getting better and better! My only complain would be that the guys seems to be very similar through the book, no difference between the guy from the first two books and Deacon.
The Program series is one of the most memorable series I've ever read. I'm in love with these books, and it's always a nice surprise to find out there are more books set in the same world. When I read The Remedy, I fell in love with the story, especially because of how strong the emotional impact it had on me was, but I was also rather frustrated because it ended on a cliffhanger and at the time, there was no news as to whether there would be a sequel. With The Epidemic, Suzanne Young took this ...more
I loved The Program. I hated The Treatment, that felt like a unnecessary sequel. I LOVED The Remedy, it was genius. This book is the sequel to The Remedy.. and yeah, that was not necessary.
It is just.. nothing happened! In the whole book! Maybe some things do happen but it did not felt like much. It was a boring read. Nothing like the Remedy, a lot like The treatment. And i did not liked the ending.
I do will ...more
This is the sequel to The Remedy and The Remedy is a prequel to The Program by Suzanne Young. I think The Remedy and The Epidemic are fantastic additions to an amazing series and anyone who is a fan of The Program should definitely read these prequels.
Last year I read The Remedy and I was so shocked and surprised and I loved it so much. It ended on a massive cliffhanger, so I was really excited when this book was announced. Maybe I was expecting this book to be as shocking as The ...more
I'm rather emotional right now, not having expected how attached I would get to certain characters or what their fate would be. well, one character, really. I'm still not over that because my heart feels like it's been ripped out and crushed to a million pieces.
this book was kind of hard hitting. I adore the characters and the chemistry they have. and while it doesn't go too deep into depression--I didn't feel the book did, anyway--it definitely showed the aftereffects of losing someone you ...more
How do you review a book that puts an exclamation point on a fantastic series? Honestly, what can I really say about The Epidemic that won't give away the whole plot of The Program and The Treatment or even The Remedy for that matter? What Suzanne Young did with this series is nothing short of perfection and I feel like I used all the words I can to tell you what I loved about each book and they all apply to The Epidemic as well. (You can find my ...more

With every new book in this series, I am always blown away. The quick ties I feel for the characters, the emotional blow of teen suicide and the fear and terror of it. The slow creeping realization of the impending Epidemic and the blood pumping urgency of CURE IT!
It's all so real. In the midst of all that is Quin. She has more answers than she ever has and yet she wants more. Determined to get them, she's decided to hunt it all down at the source and go back ...more
Fast forward a few years and seeing a goodreads friend review this book encouraged me to relook at this series.
I definitely am glad that the author wrote these prequels second, and I definitely recommend that these are read in ...more
I expected (hoped, really) to see at least a few allusions to The Program/The Treatment, and I certainly was not disappointed. I was curious how she would weave the two stories together, and it worked beautifully and naturally. Having finished this one, I'm itching to reread The Program and The Treatment so I catch ...more
The story starts right where The Remedy ends, and right where The Program. The author herself said, it is better to read the books in publication order, rather than the order the series numbers suggest, ...more
The Epidemic is the sequel to The Remedy duology. Both are prequels to The Program.
There will be some spoilers from The Remedy in this review.
Even though The Remedy and The Epidemic are prequels to The Program and The Treatment I feel like you could read The Remedy and The Epidemic without having read the other books. But they definitely all fit together.
This book is divided into three parts. The narrator is Quinn. She is a closer. A closer is someone hired by families to take on the ...more
My only small issue with this novel, and the only ...more
THIS. BOOK. WAS. AMAZING. Definitely my favorite book in the series so far. It picks up right where The Remedy left off, with Quinn and Deacon setting out on their journey to find the truth about who they are and what role they play in the start of the suicide epidemic.
Quinn. Love this girl. She's been betrayed by pretty much everyone she loves, yet she still carries on. She's resilient and she never gives up no matter how much she wants to. ...more

When I finished THE REMEDY by Suzanne Young I wanted to immediately jump into its sequel, THE EPIDEMIC because whoa Nelly that was one crazy way to end a book!! Thankfully, this was just a duology so I knew that Young couldn't toy with my emotions TOO much but it was...more
The ending of The Remedy left me speechless and a squealing mess, so much that I almost rated it 5 stars. That motherfrigging cliffhanger was everything!!! Still, it took me almost 3 years to read this sequel and I hate myself for it. I forgot most of the main plot, which is why I'm planning a re-read of the first two books in the series.
I really love this series but I believe that not much happened in The Epidemic. I enjoyed the ...more
