Infected, by Alana Terry is book 6 in an amazing Christian suspense series. This series is about a young college premed student, Kennedy Stern. Her parents live in another county, and she has come to the United States to go to school.
In this book, Kennedy is taking care of Woong, the 10 year old adopted son of Pastor Carl and his wife Sandy so they can get away for their anniversary. At the time there is a virus, Nipah, that is spreading and people are starting to panic. Her father is calling her constantly. While she is watching Woong, his teacher is sent home from school and is being suspected of having Nipah. The epidemic is spreading, school is closed and the air port is canceling flights. Kennedy’s room mate is schedules to go on school break but cannot due to canceled flights, so she goes to be with Kennedy and Woong.
Just as Carl and Sandy should be coming home, Sandy calls that Carl is going to the hospital and she wants Kennedy to bring Woong to them. While at the hospital, the hospital goes into lock down. A father of a patient has come with explosives and Kennedy is taken under her boyfriend’s orders to a safe area. What they do not know is the father is hiding where Kennedy is taken. While this is happening, Woong developed symptoms of Nipah.
This is a very fast moving suspense story that focuses on why God allows some people to get sick and even die. Kennedy’s room mate is struggling with being a new Christian and has a lot of questions.
I really enjoyed this book. It is full of suspense, a little romance and a lot of caring and compassion. The story and the characters are very well defined. I did not read the entire series, but I was able to follow this story very easily. I like how the author has written in Woong’s character and the way he pronounces his words. I especially like this character. He has a lot of history in such a short life. I think anyone who enjoys Christian suspense will enjoy this series. I do recommend reading it in order.
I received a copy of this book from the author and BookClub Network. I have written an honest review.
