Review of Lovelock Ones by Tricia Copeland

“A post-apocalyptic/dystopian science-fiction adventure…
Jema and Troy manage semi-normal lives at the Port Orford Naval Base despite global warming and mandatory genetic typing. With the threat of a second worldwide flu epidemic, their parents send them to a remote desert community. Jema’s sister contracts the virus, and Jema and Troy must decide whether to compromise the group to save one. Can Lovelock develop a cure in time to avoid mass casualty? As the political stage shifts, who can be trusted?”
I really liked how this book was straight into things right from the beginning, Jema and Troy live in a world that is segmented and always in fear of the virus returning the change the world from a lush and thriving world to one where there are stretches of barren land and city’s long forgotten. As they weren’t alive they have no idea on what things were like before or during the virus but they do know that your genetics were what allowed you to survive or succumb to the virus and now… it’s back. They are polar opposites but after been thrown together by their Fathers to help take a group of people including their family they start to build a bond that means so much more than they realize. We see them grow up, use the survival skills they learnt growing up and find out who they really are in more than one way, as well as see how ruthless the world and those who control it are. There are times you don’t know who to trust, who will survive and what crazy twist will happen next as well as some tense and happy times. You definitely want to make yourself comfortable for when you start as I didn’t put this down until the end.
Lovelock Ones is currently available through Amazon
