Omen Operation by Taylor Brooke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
**** 4 Cranky Stars ****
On the night of her winter prom, 19 year old Brooklyn encounters a creature resembling a rabid human who chases her into an empty house, she kills the creature and is found by masked and gloved people who take her to a place of safety known as camp 11.
There are already other young people there and they are told that they are the survivors of an epidemic caused by a rampant mutant virus that was a strain of rabies that was decimating the country. Here they are trained in fitness and defensive arts and the use of various weapons, told that they need to for defense of themselves and others.
Dawson, one of their group finds evidence that they have been lied to and they escape, only to be sniffed out by the Surros (Surrogates) time and time again. They find out that they are part of a random group of children who were inoculated and genetically modified by a mutated virus, giving them unusual strength and healing powers and that they were called Omens....a message!
Juneau Malloy, the author of the virus, launches an all out man hunt, using his army of Surros (failed experiments) to retrieve his "assets".
The story was exciting and fast moving and I award it 4 stars.
