I received an arc from Netgalley for an honest review.
My Rating: 5 stars
Thin pro has caused millions to become contaminated with a zombie like virus that leaves holes in the brain and causes the victims or “connies” to be violent. The virus is not known to be contagious but there is mandatory and random testing for the virus and known connies are tested on , lobotomized and shock collared. Velvet’s mom is a connie that use to be shock collared but has shown signs of recovery after Velvet illegally took her mom’s collar off with a paper clip. The soldiers rounding up people for testing are becoming even more violent and Velvet’s world is turned up side down after a house fire breaks out and Velvet is brought in for testing . I loved the main character Velvet and was hooked from the very beginning wanting to know what was going to happen next.
