Kingdom of Needle and Bone
In Kingdom of Needle and Bone by Mira Grant, the world is in an age of wonders. Modern medicine has removed the threat of children being taken before their time, improving the overall health of the population and removing mortality due to illness; especially with vaccinations and treatments no longer held for a chosen few. It begins with a fever and by the time the fever starts, it is too late.
While reading Kingdom of Needle and Bone, I really enjoyed that the author explained all the backstory for the book, as well as making the protagonist lose someone close to her to the sickness which made the mission (to make sure every kid is safe) she wants to complete more believable, and honestly, I wanted to see what would happen.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
