Narrator Kate Mulgrew adeptly handles this apocalyptic tale. Dragonscale, a horrifying disease that causes the infected to spontaneously combust, is burning through the human population. Harper Grayson, a young nurse, is infected—what’s more, she's pregnant. Determined to survive long enough to give birth, she flees her violent husband and ends up at a community that claims to have a cure for the illness. But life at the camp isn't as rosy as it first seems. Mulgrew's voices and accents are less than consistent, but she makes up for it with excellent pacing and expressive tones. Hill’s writing ranges from lyrical to action packed, and Mulgrew infuses her voice with emotions to help propel the story. E.C. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2016]
