We meet an entire cast of characters from diverse backgrounds whose lives will intertwine as a result of a maddening viral outbreak. Each of them will tell us their story as they seek to understand what is happening to the world around them. They will do whatever it takes to escape the city as it turns into a murderous chaos. This is a look at a pandemic in the making from the very start from the view of average citizens.
Konkoly’s first novel in the Zulu Virus Chronicles, Hot Zone, is a startling realistic drama that shows us what could easily happen in a major metropolitan area hit by a weaponized virus. Who released it and why? There are too many variables all pointing in a direction that is hard to believe, but with no other conclusion available.
The multiple storylines give it a very personal feel. As you get to know each of the characters you can feel their confusion and desperation. It is clear to me that this series is destined to be a bestseller.
5 out of 5 stars.
