Admission (Pandora Jones #1)
Pandora Jones wakes in an infirmary - her body weak, her memory providing only flashes of horrific scenes of death. She soon discovers that her family has succumbed to a plague pandemic which almost wiped out humanity. Pan is one of the survivors who have been admitted to The School - a quarantined, heavily guarded survival-skills facility - to recover their strength, hone their skills and prepare for whatever comes next. Pandora's skill is intuition, but how useful will it be outside the secure walls of The School? And what if it leads her to question where the truth lies...Plague. Pandemic. Intuition. Secrets. Truth. Courage. Action. Survival.
Page after page, Barry Jonsberg maintains the suspense. Every answer is met with a new question. This relentless pace offers no time for guessing, so each shocking plot twist comes as a jarring slap, as much to the reader as to Pandora herself. Jonsberg is an exceptional writer who seems just as comfortable with dystopian worldbuildingas with the more lighthearted realism of 2013 award-winner "My Life as an Alphabet." In this trilogy, Pandora Jones will push her way through the wealth of dystopian fiction to stand rightfully at the forefront of the genre. Five Stars. "Bookseller + Publisher""
