The Egyptian tie-in to the virus is fantastic. Loved the mystery and clue hunt behind the death of Alex’s father as well as the origins of the virus and anti-virus. “The Shiners”, as the infected are called, are delightfully creepy without being over-the-top about it. The writing is clean and crisp and wonderfully told through the eyes of a sixteen-year-old girl, Alex. And the story is haunting. There were moments I swear my blood chilled, it was that delightfully creepy. Delightfully creepy in all the best story ways, of course.
Recommended to those who enjoy YA scifi and mystery.
Now to read book two!
