It happened within a week . . .
Leon and his younger sister, Grace, have recently moved to London from New York and are struggling to settle into their new school, when rumours of an unidentified virus in Africa begin to fill the news. Within a week the virus hits London. The siblings witness people turning to liquid before their eyes, and they run for their lives. A month after touching Earth's atmosphere, the virus has assimilated the world's biomass.
But the virus isn't their only enemy, and survival is just the first step. Plague Land is the explosive first novel in the Remade trilogy from the bestselling and award-winning author of TimeRiders, Alex Scarrow.

Mini Review:
This is my favorite in the series. The others are great but they do get just a little weird at times.
This book really made me want to read the rest of the series. The characters are written well and I didn't have any trouble keeping them apart like a lot of other series.

Mini Review:
I'm not going to lie, all of these sort of blended together and I don't really remember what happened in each.

One of my favorite things about this series is the virus. Viruses like these are absolutely terrifying and this one is especially. Because it gets smart. 
It's really scary thinking that we don't know why or how it got started and it just starts... completely destroying the entire world.
I feel like it was written well, very gruesome and descriptive.

I did get a little confused at times when it switched from the viruses POV and the characters POV. There was no warning it just kind of switched. 

Overall I really enjoyed this series. It was well done and it kept me needing to finish it. I had to know what the f was going on and how it ended.
I finished this whole series in under two weeks.

  1. This sounds like a series I would like, although the "weird" concerns me a little. Ha ha.

  2. sounds like one i would enjoy. virus' are nothing to sneeze at...the way the flu virus is mutating, it could wipe out half the planet in no time. the ability to travel has made the world a very small place. that face gave me the shivers. lol
