Description
Deep in the Kalahari Desert, a Corpus lab protects a dangerous secret . . . But what happens when that secret takes on a life of its own? When an educational safari goes wrong, five teens find themselves stranded in the Kalahari Desert without a guide. It's up to Sarah, the daughter of zoologists, to keep them alive and lead them to safety, calling on survival know-how from years of growing up in remote and exotic locales. Battling dehydration, starvation and the pangs of first love, she does her best to hold it together, even as their circumstances grow increasingly desperate. But soon a terrifying encounter makes Sarah question everything she's ever known about the natural world. A silver lion, as though made of mercury, makes a vicious, unprovoked attack on the group. After a narrow escape, they uncover the chilling truth behind the lion's silver sheen- a highly contagious and deadly virus that threatens to ravage the entire area-and eliminate life as they know it. In this breathtaking new novel by the acclaimed author of Origin and Vitro , Sarah and the others must outrun not only the virus but its creators, who will stop at nothing to wipe every trace of it. Advance Praise for Kalahari 'A blend of survival/adventure, sci-fi, and first love, Kalahari is grounded in the resourceful courage of a girl raised in the African bush. Thrilling, unpredictable, irresistible . . . six teenagers in dire straits, and the suspense never lets up. Readers will flock to Jessica Khoury's masterful prose and storytelling.' Will Hobbs, award-winning author of Far North and Never Say Die Praise for Jessica Khoury 'Truly magnificent and unsettling.' Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of the Legend Series 'Khoury follows in the footsteps of si-fi giants Robert Heinlein, Ray Bradbury, and Anne McCaffrey. School Library Journal 'Khoury's debut captures the lush rhythms of the rainforest . . . The plot moves at breakneck speed . . . Utterly refreshing.' Kirkus Reviews 'This first novel is a gripping read . . . It is an adventure story with romantic overtones, has a lush exotic setting framed by science, turns the eternal-love concept on its head, and rotates around a compelling moral quandary.'
