A container of viruses – mutated and cryogenically frozen – is brought under heavy guard to SPIRE, a remote research station in Antarctica. Within days, people are dying of diseases that haven’t been seen since the middle ages.
Surgeon and virologist, Dr Caroline Burchell, struggles to contain the outbreak as a vicious polar storm lashes the base. The weather prevents any help from getting through to the loneliest outpost on earth.
Soon Caroline discover that the only thing worse than being alone in this desolate place is not being alone.
Fiona first published SPIRE as a daily serial on her blog. One chapter a day. There were days I loved her for it and days I wanted to shake her and tell her to just post more chapters. By the end of the serial the book had been picked up by Clockwork Books and has now been released as an eBook on Amazon and will soon be published in print too.
I gave SPIRE a full five stars. Here is my original review:
How do I describe this book?
Gripping, edge of your seat, hold your breath at the end of each chapter.
This is a fast paced, thriller that made me gasp out loud, snort laugh and even cry.
A must have for your bookshelf.
I didn’t know at the time that it was the 2nd book in a series (and it doesn’t have to be read in order), but after reading SPIRE I will definitely be reading the first book in the Burchell Sisters series, Now Following You.
