Gemini Virus by Wil Mara

Genre: Thriller/Apocalyptic/Virus/Plague
Release: October 2012
Sold by: Forge Books

Bob Easton thinks he has a cold. Before he dies in agony, four days later, he infects dozens of people. Local health agencies become quickly overwhelmed by the sick and dying and beg the CDC for help. Dr. Michael Beck and Cara Porter, a member of the Epidemic Intelligence Service, race to identify the deadly bug. They can't cure it until they know what it is.

Dennis and Andi Jensen and their children are terrified. Schools and offices close. Fresh food disappears from store shelves. Three of their children's friends die. Their neighbors are dying or running away, fleeing the unstoppable infection. Desperate, the Jensens join the exodus, making a nightmarish journey to their isolated mountain cabin along empty roads, through abandoned towns, past looted shopping malls.

The superbug—and the panic—quickly spreads beyond America’s borders. On a packed plane, someone coughs—and at their destination, the pilots are told, “you can’t land here.” US military bases are quarantined. Yet the virus continues to spread. Some believe the plague is man-made. Others see it as a sign of the end times.

In the lab, Cara Porter makes a potentially fatal mistake. In the mountains, Andi Jensen tells her husband that she doesn’t feel well.

The world is running out of time.

When this book was offered to me for review. I cannot wait to get my hands on it. But life has a way of making me delay my reviews, so I apologize but I did drop everything I was doing when I got this book, which if I can remember correctly, I was planning a birthday party. Ok! let's move on.

In accepting this book, I have managed to wriggle myself out of the romantic comedies and start off a chain of apocalyptic virus themes book that later all kills 90% of humans.Frankly I was hoping not to like it as much, but man this book is awesome! The moment patient zero, Bob "germaphobe" Easton died I knew I had to get into the bottom of his death. I mean seriously the man had a seriously issue with uncleanliness, how can he be the first person to go?! Ah! the irony. The next thing I knew I was ready all the gory stuff on how the virus spread, how and what it does to you until you die, and how it felt so real that I was scared that it might really happen to us. I was paranoid for two days and that the over whelming urge to go stock up on hand sanitizer, and join the Dooms Day Prepper wagon.

I had a lot of guesses on who was responsible for this virus. The government is number one, some stupid sceintist made a mistake or went crazy, then a terrorist attack, mother nature felt like ending us and lastly it will leave us a vague open ending kind of thing. You have to find out, go buy the book now.
