Review- Pathogen:Patient Zero by Kai Kiriyama

As some of you may know, I normally despise zombie fiction. Everything that has or can be said in that sub-genre of horror has been done…and please forgive the pun…to death.

When I first spoke to Kai about reviewing the Pathogen books I was hesitant at first, but the brief synopsis she gave me about the first book had me intrigued. I decided to lift my personal hatred of all things undead and started reading the first book. I was blown away.

Pathogen: Patient Zero is told from the point of view of the first person infected with the virus. It’s an emotional tale that sucks you in from the first paragraph.

I found myself not only sympathising but empathising with the character. There is no rhyme or reason to why she was infected and the chaos of this makes for a very compelling narrative.

If you look for a novel to contain interesting characters and an engrossing emotional story, then do yourself a favor and pick up Pathogen: Patient Zero.
