Dark Biology

Ever wonder what would happen if you take one of the worst viruses that the CDC has ever worked with and create a biological terror that is unleashed not only on earth but also in space as well? Well you have the beginnings of the premise behind the latest Science Fiction Thriller by author Bonnie Duran, Dark Biology.

Hildi Hildebrant has been in constant competition with her twin brother, Chet both working for the CDC, the Center for Disease Control, and both in what is known as Level 4, where the most volatile of diseases and viruses are kept searching for possible vaccines like Ebola and H1N1, or also known as the Spanish Flu. While Hildi has been given a unique opportunity to venture on the latest shuttle leaving for the International Space Station to work on the effects of microgravity as to how it pertains to working on a vaccine against the flu, her brother Chet has been defying the rules in hopes of securing a Nobel Prize for a vaccine against Ebola. But when he is demoted to Level 3 for not complying with the specifics of his job and risking the agency, he takes the suggest leave of absence as well as a sample of what he believes is just a harmless Level 3 flu virus to right a few wrongs in his life.

Chet has a deep seated grudge against his father, Worth Hildebrant, an infamous Christian marriage speaker who violated his own ethics when he had several affairs and almost caused his own divorce. However with the grace of God, Worth is using his testimony alongside his wife to lead marriage seminars to help others strengthen their own marriages. Chet decides to unleash the flu at his father's upcoming marriage seminar in Denver and hopes his father will fall ill in the process as retribution for the wrong his has caused in Chet's life.

However when conference attendees begin to wind up in the ICU units of the local hospitals while Chet leaves for a week long European cruise, he suddenly looks at the vial sample he obtained and realized it was much, much worse than he could ever imagine. Now that same sample of virus has also find it's way onboard the International Space Station and with it runs the risk of infecting not only the inhabitants on Earth but also risking the lives of the members of the Space Station as well.

I received Dark Biology by Bonnie Duran compliments of Harborlight Books and Upon the Rock Publicity for my honest review. I received no monetary compensation for a favorable review and LOVED this one from the first moment I began reading it. Would LOVE to see this one make it to the big screen because it's truly filled with non stop action as Hildi runs into her own issues being launched into space with her former fiancee, Frank along as pilot while her future boyfriend mans the communications at Mission Control. I wanted to read this one right when I was asked and when it arrived, I literally inhaled it from start to finish in a couple of hours. Think of this as combining the movies Contagion with Apollo 13 and you have the idea behind the novel. I easily rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars. A definite must read for Science Fiction fans!!!
