Warning: If you tend to chew your fingernails while reading a suspenseful story, you may want to pull on some gloves before opening Bonnie Doran’s Dark Biology. By my estimation, Ms. Doran owes me ten fingernails and a good night’s sleep. The adrenaline rush from reading this high-tension book didn’t let up, even hours after I’d finished reading the story.
The problem is that this plot is just too possible. The author’s thorough research and flair for description brings the possibilities of a world-wide viral outbreak to life. Add a danger-filled flight to the international space station and painfully damaged relationships, and the tension ramps to the limit. This would make a fantastic blockbuster movie.
In spite of my facetious warning, I highly recommend Dark Biology. It earns five stars.
