Wowwww.  Was the one word that kept echoing in my head. While the story is billed as one that follows a young naive Aniyah into a coupling that means her no good, the infection is really the star of this story. We watch as it devastates many and helps in a quest for revenge for others. The infection from its inception to where it ultimately lands in one family and those who are connected is what kept me interested. The story flowed well. The supporting characters were interesting and the message was loud and clear. It (the message) is not what you think and I won't spoil it.  While Aniyah is not a likable heroine and one that made me want to yell at her..okay I did it on more than one occasion, I appreciated the cultural and social relevance this story will hold.  My only complaint is that the author took the scenic route to get to the "good stuff". I was about 74% into the book before I stopped skimming passages that focused on Aniyah. Sorry. You can get your own copy here and support the author by leaving a review.
