A young adult thriller
rated by mature readers who hunger for some serious controversy - The
Biocide Conspiracy' is a story about two Australian Teenagers who find
wreckage from the International Space Station and evidence it has been
used to manufacture a deadly biocide - the most lethal weapon of mass
destruction in the history of the world.
This is one of the first reviews I ever did at the request of the author. I wanted to read it because the author is Australian and the setting is the outback of Western Australia. As a (fairly) recent immigrant to Australia I wanted to read things written from an Aussie perspective. It certainly provides that.
Gripping and fast paced, this novel tells the story of two teenagers from vastly different worlds who hate each other on sight. The two must somehow come together to save not only their own lives, but the human race. The novel is chock full of suspense, intrigue, even a little romance, and is not so far fetched. It has a satisfying ending, yet left this reader wanting more. I couldn't put it down!
