The book mainly follows a boy named Leon, his sister Grace and their mother but there are other points of view at times in the story. Leon first sees the plague news and becomes infatuated with it but soon the media begins to cover things up and it’s at this time Leon’s father calls th ...more
the writing was very fast-paced and taut with tension, and i literally don't think i put my kindle down at all except to put on some music. although the concept of an apocalyptic plague isn't original, the way this infection was created was rather original - a pathogen that can think for itself and can communicate with other members of its species to create some sort of super-organism.
there's a sequel to this, and ...more

My reaction while reading about one of the characters dying:
Me: Oh, they're going to die aren't they?
Book: *murders character in a gory bloody display*
Me:... well, ew. *shrugs* *reads on*
Idk, I just felt like I never really connected to any of these characters to fear losing them, I felt bad for them, sure, but I wasn't on the ...more
This book is an utter masterpiece of horror and delight.
From the moment I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down. Normally, this kind of book would scare the hell out of me and I would run away (it did, but I persevered) but I just HAD to keep reading! Everything about this book is just fabulous.
My only two problems would be the use of repetitive words such as ‘facsimile’, I felt that there could have been a little thesaurus thrown at this book. The other would be that the ending was qui ...more
Well, it started off decently as a family, consisting of Mom, 17 year old Leon, and 12 year old sister Grace, flee the City right before a deadly virus hits in full force.
Great start to a normal scenario I’ve seen so many times in apocalypse stories. But then... the story starts it’s terrifying vee ...more

I love post-apocalyptic stories and this one did not disappoint. It's a mixture of a survival tale with a large dash of horror. The action kept me turning the pages all the way to the twisty ending. I actually stayed up way too late to finish this book and will certainly read the sequel.
I think I should just stay away from post apocalyptic books because the last one I read apart from this was not a positive experience either. This one just has so many things not working for me. The characters are all bland stereotypes with the exception of one (Grace was the only one I liked). Leon is just the one who is a loner but wants to step it up and blah. Freya was literally just the girl who "is not like the other girls" an ...more
The cries of my soul were answered when I was offered the chance to read and review Remade. It's not a zombie apocalypse and it's not a plague and there's no evil government to contend with. ...more
As the Plague moves along, killing everything in it's path. It slowly starts tra ...more
Thank you so much to NetGalley and the publisher for sending me a copy to review!
From the start I was hooked, I loved the characters depth and this ability to feel for the characters, lead to a far more emotional read especially in the disaster circumstances. The virus was one of my absolute ...more
