As a lover of intrigue and strong character development I was referred to this novel by a friend. I'm so glad that I found it! The protagonist Lucky is a three dimensional character of considerable gravity. She is not just some urban superhero saving the world from the virus that is about to become a pandemic, but a real flesh and bone flawed individual that you root for because she is so real and fleshed out. Also, the authors writing is dynamic, with a forward plot progression and proper mechanics; something very important to me as a reader. Her grasp on description even while discussing mutations and genetics always transcended didacticism and always provided a colorful landscape to fall into.

A friend recommended this book to me, as she knows I like stories with strong female characters. After Lucky's introduction, I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. Lucky is easy to like, and even better - the story was intricate and interesting without being obvious. It was very intelligently written, and the character development reminded me a bit of Khaled Hosseini's style, for those who like his books. And Lucky's character, to me, was a bit reminiscent of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum - plucky, smart, and self effacing. Now that I know there's a first book, I will be buying that one, also!
