In 2012, a flu epidemic killed millions. Among the survivors struggling to adapt, Tessa flees to her family’s cabin, only to find it already occupied…by fairies! After a companionable year with her new housemates, Tessa again has to adapt to a parade of creatures of myth and legend on her property—including a baby dragon and a tiny goblin. All the creatures aren’t so friendly, and Tessa soon learns she’s in the battle for her very life and the life of those she’s come to love. Driven by a maniacal monster with a personal grudge against Tessa, ogres hunt humans to make way for a new evil regime on Earth. Only Tessa and her small friends stand between hope and annihilation.
*This book was sent to me by the author for review.*
With dark forces threatening to take over the human realm, this fun story of fairies, little goblins and baby dragons turns deadly. Tessa learns these forces are after her, not to destroy her as they did her family, but to convince her to join them.
I enjoyed reading Contagion and learning about all of the fantastical characters. The pacing during the battle scene was excellent and the ending left me wanting to read more.
Though, with all of the information packed into the first chapter, I would have liked to see Contagion developed into a novella rather than as a short story.
My Rating: 4 Aliens out of 5
