The General wants her to go into a prison, where the inmates have unaffected DNA. But they have a few stipulations - mainly that Deanna come herself and they want some supplies. Deanna doesn't want to go because the General believes that it is through their DNA that they can create children that are virus free, their future.
Deanna wants to save the people now, not just the future. But the General doesn't want to waste valuable time with that. But, she may not get to do either of them because the inmates are staging a prison break while Deanna is there.
I like reading apocalyptic novels, but I haven't quite read one like this. It has a very unique and clever premise, with wonderfully developed characters moving it along. It's quick paced and I finished it before I knew it; I was so engrossed in the story. Definitely recommend this one - Highly enjoyable!
The General sends Deanna in to the prison with only a guard a former war leader who's also a criminal in the prison. He thinks that the only want to save man kind is through a new generation of children and by using the criminals with the uninfected DNA they could do just that. However Deanna wants to save the already infected people, but under the orders of the general she enters the prison. However her time is short lived, the criminals are staging a break, and if the former war leader can't save her life, all could be lost forever.
I was really surprised by this book I'm always a little nervous with the whole Apocalyptic stuff, but it was surprisingly very good. The characters are well written, Deanna comes off as a the kind of woman who made a mistake and is willing to risk it all to fix it. The story is face paced but full of entertainment, not a dull moment to be found. Your instantly drawn in, wanting to know more. I finished it in one sitting, because I just had to know. I loved the ending it just left me with a smile and wanting more. I found it very unique, and full of twists and turns.

There were some parts that were overwhelmingly full of science, biology and scientific references that I did struggle a bit to get through. (Although you can tell it was very well researched and logical that these events could happen)
Overall it's a very interesting story. It will get you thinking.
I believe I read that the story was originally written to be published in an anthology of like-stories. Which would have been a great addition if, I would have liked to see that happen. But as is I think it would make an awesome full length novel with more fleshed out characters.
Would I recommend it: Not really, no.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I am not so used to post-apocalyptic stories (only in tv shows) so this genre was quite new to me. Was very fast drawn into the story, and while the environment was pretty clearly pictured, there were still enough tidbits and left for it to stay mysterious.
The ending left me wanting more... Which is always a good sign.
