REVIEW: Holy Toledo! Hang on to your seat!! Only One Wave by Jenifer Ruff was one of those books that hooks you and won’t let you go until you’re finished and beyond. I finished last night and I’m still thinking about this exciting book.
Number one. The medical part of the story is awesome. There is a Tsunami on the Island of Nalowale and a virus follows. The story is the race to find out how to cure it. I loved all the medical testing and attempts at treatment. If you’re like me and love medical stuff, this is your next read.
Number two. The main characters who appear in the rest of the series are on the island. The inhabitants of the island that are suffering losses and illness after the the disaster of the Tsunami. You can’t help but feel sorry for them. One little boy kept tugging at my heartstrings.
Number three. There is a lot going on and the author is so good it’s easy to follow. I felt along the way I knew what was going on, but I didn’t. Only One Wave was very well written and Jenifer Ruff did an amazing job.
I received a complimentary copy from the author. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
SYNOPSIS: “Once again, Jenifer Ruff delivers a heart-pumping thriller! The well-crafted twists surrounding this medical mystery will keep you guessing until the end.” – Audrey J. Cole – USA Today bestselling author
A tsunami strikes a small island in the Pacific Ocean, leaving destruction and madness in its wake.
After the natural disaster, CDC epidemiologist Dr. Madeline Hamilton and her fiancé, FBI operative Quinn Traynor, go to Nalowale Island to investigate a deadly outbreak of unknown origin. Victims become aggressive and irrational, suffering from insomnia, hallucinations, and eventual death.
Under quarantine conditions, with all communications to and from the island shut down, the wave of illness climbs toward a calamitous crash. Then Madeline uncovers something terrifying…and impossible. The investigation requires huge leaps of faith and significant acts of courage, but what they discover, and what they take home with them, will change lives forever.
“Only One Wave is a gripping thriller led by captivating characters and an enthralling story. I loved every minute of it.”—Timothy Browne, USA Today bestselling author
