Book Review - The Apocalypse Strain by Jason Parent

The Apocalypse Strain

The Apocalypse Strain by Jason Parent
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Synopsis:  A multi-national research team, led by a medical genomics expert suffering from MS, study an ancient pandoravirus at a remote Siberian research facility. Called "Molli" by the research team, the organic substance reveals some unique but troublesome characteristics, qualities that, in the wrong hands, could lead to human extinction. The researchers soon learn that even in the right hands, Molli is a force too dangerous to escape their compound. But the virus has a mind of its own, and it wants out.


My Thoughts: With the way the world is today I was a bit hesitant to read this. I already feel as though I am living a nightmare from one of the books I have read but still I proceeded and got just as much enjoyment out of it as I usually do with stories like this which are one of my all time faves! I think this was a tiny bit of every horror book or movie I have ever watched and geniously sewn together into one entity.

It's a story of madness and science and how folks cope with it. Dr. Clara St. Pierre who suffers from MS is invited to work with "Molli" the name given to the virus and she hopes it will somehow cure her but Molli actually has a mind of its own and has an agenda for itself.

While it didn't really have me sitting on the edge of my seat it was still a thrilling read and I enjoyed it!

Was given a copy in exchange for an honest review.
