Contagious Chaos it the third book in the Contagium Series. Originally, I had planned only three books, but book two was so big it had to be split into two. I am very glad I was able to do that, and the split worked out great, with each book having tons of action, drama, gore, laughs, and tears. I love all the books in the Contagium Series, but Contagious Chaos is probably my favorite. Why, you ask? Here are the top five reasons Contagious Chaos gets a big thumbs up from me! (without giving away spoilers, of course!)
1.) Tons of action. Only about 25% of this book actually takes place at the compound.
2.) New villains. Zombies aren’t the only thing threatening the compound. It’s fun to see how the characters react in new situations, and see how far they are willing to bend their own moral code for the greater good.
3.) New people on the A team. Sadly, not everyone on Orissa’s original team of A1s make it. After mourning the loss, someone else steps up to the plate. I happen to really like this character who I won’t name (no spoilers, remember?) and I like the relationship that develops between Orissa and said character.
4.) Orissa really grows in this book. When we first meet her, she is angry and still hurt from things in her past. She learns to deal with them, forgive herself, and move on to what is really important in life.
5.) A deeper romance. A book without romance feels like it’s missing something, so I am very happy to say that a relationship between two characters (no spoilers!) moves to a new level. Writing that part was fun :)
