A mysterious virus has infected most of the world’s population. This sickness transforms the living into violent “crazies” and eventually into the flesh-eating undead.
Orissa and Hayden have survived in this new harrowing world. They have watched heroes fall, lost friends, and waged war—both against the living and the dead. Now a new revelation will shake everything they have built and everything they believe…
After learning the shattering truth about the virus, Orissa and her friends discover a new enemy, more deceitful and more powerful than anyone or anything they have faced before.
And this time it’s up to Orissa and Hayden to destroy the evil at its source and keep the lie from spreading. The truth is their mission and the truth is contagious.
I hate you Emily Goodwin… and I mean that in the best possible way. You have managed to break me time and time again! You make me care for these characters and then you kill them off with no remorse whatsoever (I’m lying. I’m sure you probably spilled more than a tear over their deaths too). The only thing that keeps me going is the hope. Not just the hope for the characters, but also the hope that you’ll write more stories. I refuse to believe that it’s all over! I’m going to cling to the belief that Emily will come out with an endless supply of short stories to fill in this hole in my heart. Novellas? Sequels? Spinoffs? I’m not picky. 😉
Having said that… 5 STARS!! 5 STARS!! 5 STARS!! The entire series has been beyond outstanding! Strong characters, an unforgettable story, thrilling action. It will haunt me for years to come. The Truth is Contagious was the perfect conclusion.
Contagious Chaos left off with a giant cliffhanger. Hayden and Orissa have been left with a huge amount of responsibility, but are they ready for it? There are deaths. I don’t think that’s a huge spoiler to say that. If there’s one thing that can be said about Emily, it’s that she doesn’t shirk from her duty as an author. She makes the tough choices and kills when necessary. There are also some amazing new characters too, to balance things out.
Emily Goodwin has proven that she’s an author to watch out for, no matter what genre to writes in. The Contagium series has a perfect amount of romance, and just enough gore to turn your stomach. If you haven’t started the book yet, now is the perfect time to start!
