Summary of the Book:
An extinct disease re-emerges from the melting Alaskan permafrost to cause madness in its victims. For recent apocalyptic cult escapee Wynter Roth, it’s the end she’d always been told was coming.
When Wynter Roth is turned out of New Earth, a self-contained doomsday cult on the American prairie, she emerges into a world poised on the brink of madness as a mysterious outbreak of rapid early onset dementia spreads across the nation.
As Wynter struggles to start over in a world she’s been taught to regard as evil, she finds herself face-to-face with the apocalypse she’s feared all her life—until the night her sister shows up at her doorstep with a set of medical samples. That night, Wynter learns there’s something far more sinister at play and that these samples are key to understanding the disease.
Now, as the power grid fails and the nation descends into chaos, Wynter must find a way to get the samples to a lab in Colorado. Uncertain who to trust, she takes up with former military man Chase Miller, who has his own reasons for wanting to get close to the samples in her possession, and to Wynter herself.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have to say this book hit really hard. I love the characters in this book. They all had their roles to play. Wynter does not give you the choice to follow her on her journey she drags the reader along. I like Chase he is bold and mysterious. I would be lying if I did not say that this book had me from the get-go and it made me want to know where they would all end up. I had to read it all in one sitting. It had my heart pounding to the very last page. The contrast between being at New Earth and the outside world is a lot to take in. It shows what Wynter was taught and forced to believe and then being without those structures in place she struggles but she does not give up. She has a mission and she is going to do so regardless of what gets in her way.
My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
