Sarina, Sweetheart by Megan Carney 
Publication date: March 5th 2015 
Genres: New Adult, Science Fiction


Her name is Sarina Wocek. Her breath is poison. She was not born out of love.

Twenty-three years ago, government officials traced the budding epidemic of hemorrhagic fever HF186-2A in south Florida to the Wocek family and their adorable six-week-old daughter, Sarina. Her father, Gregory, admitted his role in genetically engineering a biological weapon with pride. She was taken to a lab hidden in a rural area of New Hampshire. She hasn’t left since.

Her government keepers could cure her, but they won’t. Genetically engineering a child to be a weapon of mass destruction, that’s unethical. Refining a weapon of mass destruction that someone else created? That’s just being clever.

After twenty-three years of captivity, she escapes. She crosses an ocean to put her father and the lab behind her, but it’s not enough. When she sees the first bleeding sore, she knows she didn’t leave the virus behind either.

The only way she’ll be free is by destroying every trace of the lab. She only has one advantage; she doesn’t care if she makes it out alive.

This was a little different to my usual sci fi read, good different that is!

It was a really clever idea, Sarina is a weapon, her father a genius scientist has made her a carrier of a strain of Haemorrhagic Fever, she was created by him not through love but in the name of science.

She has been hidden in a lab for twenty three years, too dangerous to be out in public for fear of her spreading the virus, she has lived her life in the confines of the lab, being subject to constant tests and constant monitoring.

She wants out, the question is can she escape and can she ever be normal again, will she be free of the virus that could kill so many including herself.

This was an enjoyable read with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing throughout.

I'm gonna keep an eye out for more books from Megan in the future!
