Blurb (from Goodreads):
Sixteen-year-old Alex has always suspected her father’s death wasn’t random, but she never guessed how deep the mystery runs or what it involves. When a rare meteor shower is followed by a highly contagious infection, the people she once knew so well start acting like they have a similar purpose that doesn’t include her. Alex can now only rely on her friend Chris and loyal dog Baxter as she plunges into a strange, new world predestined since ancient times. Wandering the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, deciphering cryptic messages left by her father, desperately searching for a cure-will Alex have the courage and faith to even survive?
Bloodline is the first book of the Forgotten Origins Trilogy.
My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars

This was an interesting sci-fi story with a bit of a twist.
I liked Alex, she seemed to be a nice girl, and was happy to give up her free time to look after her mother and take care of her brother. It was obvious how badly she wanted to help rid the world of the virus that had been unleashed, and she really did go to great lengths to achieve that.
The storyline in this was pretty good, and I enjoyed the idea that the world was being threatened by an evil virus, even if I did get a little confused by the explanation of how the virus chose who to infect.
I liked the mystery and suspense, and I liked the danger in this book, the pace meant that the story flowed quite nicely as well.
The ending to this was good, and I was happy that things worked out okay, I do wonder what will happen in the next book now though, as things were tied up quite nicely.
6.5 out of 10
