review 1: I could have gone either way on 4 or 5 stars. Although I am a fantasy buff that dabbles in a bit of sci-fi, something about the plague/uncontrolled virus stories have always held my interest. So I gave this one a chance, and I am glad I did.

But the book is good enough to stand on its own just as it is. I WILL buy the next one.
