Black Spiral #1 - Violet Black product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsSet in the near future, this first book in a fast-paced trilogy will hook you in from the first page.

Violet Black and Ethan Wright are both in a coma after contracting the lethal M-fever. They have never met:

I couldn't speak, but I was trying so hard to communicate and then... then...I pushed. And something, someone, pushed back. Her name is Violet. Violet, but she is sunshine-yellow, and I need to find her because I think she might be just like me.

But there is a far more serious reason for Ethan to find Violet: the sinister Foundation is trying to hunt them down.

Violet Black, the main character in this book, has caught the horrible M-Fever, a virus that has mutated thanks to the vaccination rates for measles falling and no vaccine for this new strain is in existence yet. Violet awakens from a coma to find she is one of the few to survive, but not only that, she can read the minds of those around and thought-speak to someone in another ward. Of course, someone has clued into these teenagers and before Violet knows what's going on she finds herself transported out of New Zealand to the middle of nowhere in Australia with four others like her. The book spends its time swapping perspectives between Violet and Ethan (the first person she can speak to telepathically) and this is made easy to follow.

These teens are put in a tough position, they need to learn how to get along so that they can work out exactly what they're going to do for The Foundation, the people who have seemingly taken them captive. There are twists and turns as the teens must try and figure out what is going on but also what The Foundations plans for them really are, are they trying to help them or is something more sinister going on. The romance between two of the characters felt a bit rushed with how short a time they'd known each other but otherwise the relationships were portrayed well enough. There's plenty of action and intrigue and I enjoyed the book enough to quickly snap up the readers copy of book #2 when it was available.
