“The sores forming with unholy speed on Harley’s arms and legs confirmed the infection was spreading. Its poison surged through her veins with such momentum that she could feel its sting in the current of her pulse. Unrelenting pain seared every cell, and she struggled to maintain focus, despite the fever raging in her blood.” – Viral Storm
Viral Storm continues the story of Casey Williams and her friends attempting to flee the country and expose the evil work of BioGenetics, creators of the virus that spawned the zombie apocalypse. Euthanizing her best friend, who’d been infected with the virus, was the most soul-crushing thing Casey could have imagined, but that was nothing compared to what happens next… Like the first book in the series, Viral Dawn, Viral Storm has gore, violence, and dark themes common in zombie apocalyptic fiction, but the book focuses more on the characters’ lives than other elements. The story centers on strong, young adult female characters as do similar books in female-centered dystopian fiction like The Hunger Games, Twilight, Divergent, and The Year of the Flood. Join Casey as her struggle for survival continues in Viral Storm.

Enjoyable, well-crafted story that ramps up the tone of the series

I stumbled upon the first book in The Viral Series by Skyler Rankin a couple of months ago. Initially, I was going to pass because it seemed lumped in the YA category and I am not that young, nor an adult … at least according to everyone that knows me. However, with the limited options available in this post-apocalyptic, overrun by the undead world that we live in, I thought I should give it a go.
I’m glad I did.
The first book was a quick read for me because it quickly caught my interest and then held it through to the end. So much so that when the opportunity presented itself to read Viral Storm, book two in the Viral Series, I had to jump on it.
Much like the first, the characters and story quickly drew me in. And much like everything else in life, a change occurred. Good change, but definitely change.
While the first book touched on many themes universal to the zombie literature I’ve read, it did so in some original, relatively light and almost innocent ways.
Viral Storm continues in a similar way … until it doesn’t. Book two takes the story down a little darker and more graphic path, one that may catch some readers off guard. It may even be a little disturbing to some of the younger YA readers but really, compared to some other content I’ve read in the category it’s not too over the top. Just something to be aware of.
Very interesting story with characters that will draw you in, a writing style that makes you feel like you are there and an author willing and able to play with your imagination and emotions with finesse.
I can’t wait to see where we go with book 3!

“Wonderful second book in the G.O.D.s series” – Blood Phase (Book 2 of the G.O.D.’s Series) by Kirsten Campbell

Kirsten blood phase

     #dystopian #bestseller #bookbooster

WARNING  FOR 18+ ONLY

THE G.O.D.S SERIES MUST BE READ IN ORDER

Line Blurb.jpg
November 12, 2052: Earth has lost two-thirds of its population to the Great War. Many more lives have been lost to earthquakes, the Clover Virus, and the Death Plague. Years later, survivors are clumped into factions. Two of those factions—the Brotherhood and the Guild Faction—have battled over medical supplies and food for years. The fight is coming to a head as manpower dwindles, and the struggle becomes one to gain numbers, even if said numbers are children…
Griffin Storm, an albino man kidnapped and dragged into the Brotherhood, has transformed into a G.O.D., a Genetically enhanced Omni-dimensional being. Two weeks in the brig, and Griffin’s released after it’s determined that he’s learned to control most of his god-like abilities. His abilities have grown almost as much as his love for Tassta Vinetti and his unfortunate bloodlust. His bond with Tassta’s twin brother, Penn, has grown as well and is cemented in secrets.
Not disappointed!
Griffin, having earned the trust of Fortress authorities, is set to be released from The Brig, much to the delight of Tassta, his sweetheart. Although Griffin still has a lot to learn about balancing his newfound abilities against his inherent humanity, overall he does well and has enough control over his abilities to prevent caving into his inner desires. As his and Tassta’s romance heats up, Griffin gets the horrifying news soon after his release, Griffin’s told that Guild agents and the notorious Trips (super-agents of the Guild) are in the Underground. He must now test his abilities to save the abandoned children that live there. Will Griffin rescue the children of the Underground from a tragic end? Will Tassta and Griffin’s love survive such turmoil? Can a G.O.D. forgive himself when death and destruction follow his every move? Read Blood Phase, the gripping second book in the G.O.D.s Series!

Wonderful second book in the G.O.D.s series

You really get to know and love Griffin Storm in the first book of the series, ‘Blood Master.’ His fight continues in ‘Blood Phase.’ The Great War has left a world divided. Like all good suspense stories, there’s good and evil. In this case, the Brotherhood and the Guild Faction.
Griffin is learning more about his unusual powers and how to control them. His feelings for Tassta are intensifying, but their relationship is challenged as Griffin battles a myriad of emotions.
The unwavering love from Tassta and friendship from Penn is needed to give Griffin the strength to rescue the children before they’re taken back to the Guild Faction.
This book follows on beautifully from the first in the series. The Descriptive characters, imaginative storyline, heart-pumping action, and passionate love story, make it a must-read.

Great start to the series.

This was a really fun and fast read. It kept me hooked and not wanting to stop until the end. It does start off slow but the authors building a lot of backstories which is really nice. A lot of reviews are saying its too short but that really isn’t the problem. Its the first book in the series and it’s over 200 pages. The problem is you get to the end of this one and you want book 2 so you can know what happens next.
The character building in this story is amazing. You really get to know Casey and feel for her. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who’s a fan of zombie novels. YA or not its a great story. I cant wait to see where the rest of the series goes.
