SYNOPSIS: In his national bestseller HYBRID, Brian O'Grady created a bracing and vividly realized tale of a virus gone out of control. At the center of that story was Amanda Flynn, a woman not killed by the EDH1 virus, but changed in frightening ways. HYBRID only hinted at the story of Amanda's work in Honduras that led to her exposure and the ramifications when the American government sought to contain the damage. Now, that story can be told. AMANDA'S STORY is the heart-stopping tale of a woman caught up in a storm she wanted no part of, and what happens when she refuses to be collateral damage. It is the story that readers of HYBRID have been waiting for and that new readers will find impossible to put down.
As the title suggest this is Amanda's Story; and what a story it is. Amanda has suffered a tragic loss and is beginning to live again. She takes a job that will allow her to travel the world and use her skills as a nurse to help others. Little does she know that this new job will change her life drastically.
This is a must read medical thriller. The first couple of chapters were a little slow for me but it picked up so quickly that I was unable to put this down. I had to know how things would pan out for Amanda and in what ways would the EDH1 virus affect her. My favorite part of the book is Amanda's relationship with Bernice. This relationship is loving and filled with hard truths that must be told. I was not surprised by the various governments reactions regarding the situations Amanda found herself in.
