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.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
