The Scorpio Project by Amy Bartelloni
(The Andromeda Series #3)
Genres: Young Adult, Dystopian
The refugee camp at Waterville Valley has survived the
winter. With the coming of the spring, and the defeat of
President Vise and Dax, the camp should be celebrating, but Sera’s dreams tell her their problems are far from over.
Sera has always relied on her intuition, even if she never quite understood it, and when she dreams of a girl trapped in a tank, suffering, she knows she has to help. With a little digging, she uncovers the fact that the Valley’s origins might not have been as benign as she thought. In fact, her parents, who she thought were renowned scientists fighting the infection, might have been part of the very project that released the infection into the world: the Scorpio Project.
Sera is determined to follow the clues in search of the mysterious girl. They lead her to the Plum Island Animal Research facility, and a shadowy figure called Scorpio. In the course of her discovery she finds there is a new, deadly virus, one created by Vise as a fail-safe, but Sera isn’t sure if Scorpio is fighting the virus or fanning it. With enemies inside the facility, Sera must learn to rely on reason over instinct if she is to survive.
Oh my goodness. With each book, Amy Bartelloni built on her story and characters. In The Scorpio Project, all of her efforts came to fruition. There are a lot of unexpected happenings, and I was surprised until the end! Sera has shown so much growth; I couldn't be more proud of her. This story is hers, and she has owned it!
Fans of The Walking Dead and The Road will fall in love with this series. Young or old can flock to these pages and find something to identify with and pique their interest. I cannot wait to see what's next from Amy Bartelloni!
