Hello everyone! Today, I’m featuring a book by the author, Erin Bowman, who wrote Contagion(which I crowed about recently, it was such a zipping read!) called ‘Immunity’. This is the sequel and last book in the duology. Check it out below to see what it’s about 😉 Note: Although I did not enjoy Immunity as much as Contagion, due to it’s pronounced shift in focus to a more political one, it’s still well-written with some food for thought on privacy, loyalty and morality. If you enjoy sci-fi, interstellar politics with a side of romance, chances are, you might enjoy this.
Also, keep scrolling for a giveaway(US only. I know 😩 I am sorry to my international readers but this is up to the author & publisher).
Immunity (Contagion #2)
by Erin Bowman
Release Date: July 2nd 2019
Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Politics
Survivors of a deadly planetary outbreak take on a new, sinister adversary in the white-knuckle sequel to Contagion, which New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman called “gripping, thrilling and terrifying in equal measures.”
They thought their nightmare was over, but Thea, Coen, and Nova’s rescue was only the beginning. After being imprisoned on a ship they thought was their ticket to safety, it’s clear that the threat they left behind isn’t as distant as they’d hoped—and this time the entire galaxy is at risk.
Now that threat is about to be unleashed as an act of political warfare. To prevent an interstellar catastrophe, the survivors must harness the evil they faced on the planet Achlys and learn to wield the only weapon they have left: themselves.
The first installment in Erin Bowman’s duology earned a starred review from Publishers Weekly, who called the plot “intricate and action-packed,” and fans of Jonathan Maberry, Rick Yancey, and Madeline Roux will relish in Bowman’s tense, high-stakes conclusion to the events of Contagion.

A good blogger friend of mine, who also happened to LOVE Contagion #1, has written her review, too. We share similar sentiments on the lack of spookiness in the sequel but she ultimately gave it 4 stars. My review will be coming soon, until then, you can check out what she’s got to say, an informed decision is always encouraged! 😉
