Congtagion

September 3rd, 2019 - Posted in Library News -

by Erin Bowman, 423 pages, Grades 7 and up

The Odyssey crew receives a distress from a nearby planet. The cold, dark planet is inhabited by the mining industry, so the Odyssey expects to find a busy industrial complex when they land at the station. Instead the whole station seems quiet, and then they find bodies. So many bodies, some strewn throughout the station, throats cut, bleeding from the eyes, some piled in a mass grave in the mine shaft frozen and unmoving. Instead of running back to the ship the team decides to investigate; they will collect a body to autopsy in the lab so they can understand the disease that overcame an entire mining company, but when they try to collect a corpse, the bodies reanimate and begin to attack! Luckily they all are wearing impenetrable space suits that should keep them safe, but how can they be sure no one is infected when they don’t even understand the contagion?

If you enjoy science fiction books full of suspense and adventure, you might also enjoy: Killer of Enemies, by Joseph Bruchac, Illuminae, by Amie Kaufman, or Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card.
