"In the vein of Michael Crichton's The Andromeda Strain (1969), Scarrow's series starter centers on 16-year-old Leon, while interspersed vignettes show how a disease originates and evolves in West Africa... a thrilling family survival story, a clinical study of a fictional pathogen, body horror, and an action-packed dystopian narrative." -- Booklist

"Terror, anxiety, and anticipation will flow rapidly through the veins of readers as they piece together this fast-paced horror." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
