New Review! Killshot (Icarus, #1) by Aria Michaels, 5 Cranky Stars

Killshot (Icarus #1)Killshot by Aria Michaels
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

**** 4.5 Cranky Stars ****

Life hasn't been easy for Liv Larson. Both her parents died and she is separated from her younger brother, Beans, when they are sent to different foster homes.

Liv's old life is over. Once a promising athlete she abandons it, burying it under her grief. Her outlet is art and her friendship with her soul sister, BFF, Riley. Her dream is to graduate high school and reunite with her brother Beans.

A once in a life-time event, turns into a nightmare where classmates are incinerated, a virus is let loose, and the world stops working. Teamed with a rag-tag group of friends, semi-strangers, and a love interest, Liv sets out to get answers and find her brother.

This is a compelling story, a real page turner. It's filled with likeable characters, action, surprises, and government conspiracies.

I hate doing this, but it has to be said: there are a number of typos in this work and I found that distracting from the overall quality of the work. This is a really good book and will appeal to YA/Dystopian readers and also, those that like mystery with strong female characters.

I look forward to the next one to see where Liv and her team's future takes them.
