book review YA fiction

This Mortal Coil

I’ve got some YA dystopia for you today. The Hydra Virus in this story is hands down the grossest most hardcore method of mass extinction ever. It’s not a spoiler to tell you that people explode and then float around in a giant death cloud, is it? I hope not, cause now you know.

There are so many twists that once you start to figure it out then you are wrong, and you don’t even mind because it is a brilliant twist. It’s fast-paced and somewhat plausible. I read it in a couple of days. It is gory, and usually, that’s not my jam, but I was okay with this as it suited the story.

Perfect for the science-loving teen in your world that likes a bit of gore mixed in with their teen romance drama.
