Book review: Plague Land by Alex Scarrow

Plague Land by Alex Scarrow


**I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review** (Cover art and synopsis from Goodreads)


Leon and his younger sister, Grace, have recently moved to London from New York and are struggling to settle into their new school when rumors of an unidentified plague 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 wiped out most of the population. Desperate to stay alive, Leon and Grace are reluctantly taken in by a tight-knit group of survivors. But as they struggle to win their trust, the siblings realize that the virus isn’t their only enemy, and survival is just the first step…


 I love post-apocalyptic stories and this one did not disappoint. It’s a mixture of a survival tale with a large dash of horror. The action kept me turning the pages all the way to the twisty ending. I actually stayed up way too late to finish this book and will certainly read the sequel.
