Tour: Echoes of Savanna by Lucinda Moebius

About the Book

Every generation has their defining moments, events that change history and turn the course of lives. Forever will the children of that generation be identified by those moments. Savanna Taylor is a medical doctor in 2036, the same year terrorists release a series of plagues and viruses into the world. She is a nineteen year old Brain Trust whose task it is to find a cure for the diseases and develop vaccines to prevent their further spread. The world is thrown in turmoil and Savanna needs to find a way to survive with her sanity and family intact. Can Savanna cope in a world in constant flux brought on by war and disease? Can she save the world and protect her loved ones or will she make the ultimate sacrifice? How will she be defined?

My Thoughts
 This is a dystopian futuristic type novel that will leave you on the edge of your seat.  Savannah is a young doctor, only nineteen, and is a wonderful character.  She develops at a great pace in this book, and really shines.  First in a series, I am excited about the next one.  The idea of this reality is a shocking one and will really make you think.  The author has built a fantastic world with complex and likable characters, with a tight and unique plot that will leave adult and young adult readers alike entertained, yet will exercise your mind.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
