When a fatal fever nearly wipes out the entire world's population, the survivors of what became known as "the Dying" believe the worst is in the past. Little do they know…

In the aftermath of the Dying, survivor Jessica Monroe searches for sanctuary in a world unlike any she's ever known before. As fear and isolation envelop her, Jessica encounters the sensitive and helpful Jace, who she believes is another survivor. But Jace has a past and secrets of his own that's he not ready to disclose.

Soon Jessica realizes that the destruction of humanity might actually be the first step in a larger, more complicated plan -- a plan that may very well involve her. Struggling to discover her role in a terrifying new world where everything has changed, she must decide who she can trust. But is the price for that trust just too high?

My Review
What attracted me to this title is the theme and the fact that Djinns are involved. You might think I've been a bit of crazy considering the world news for this year. I admit that I had a bit of a nightmare the first night because I have a very scientific mind which tried to make sense of it all.
This is the first time that I read a story with Djinns. I did not find any in French. This is one of the reasons I am happy to read in English. I have a lot more choice of reading by adding the French and English books.
We begin the story in a world identical to ours but what happens afterwards radically changed the planet which is rid of the majority of humans following an epidemic of fever.
We live the change with Jessica, we are sad with her. Even though I know this is just a fiction it is sobering and I thought a lot about my family and what my reaction would be to the same.
The pace is quite quiet, the pages are linked easily without problem of comprehension. There was only one moment when I got a little bored: in chapters 15 and 16.
I intend to continue this series because there is still a lot to discover. I just hope there will be a little more action.
With this book, I discovered Christine Pope. She already has several books and series to her credit. Many are attracting me so many are already joining my wish-list.
Rating : 4,2/5
