Seventeen-year-old Eva is a chosen one. Chosen to live, while others meet a swift and painful death from an incurable virus so lethal, a person is dead within days of symptoms emerging. In the POD system, a series of underground habitats built by the government, she waits with the other chosen for the deadly virus to claim those above. Separated from family and friends, it's in the PODs she meets David. And while true love might not conquer all, it's a balm for the broken soul.
After a year, scientists believe the population has died, and without living hosts, so has the virus. That's the theory, anyway. But when the PODs are opened, survivors find the surface holds a vicious secret. The virus mutated, infecting those left top-side and creating... monsters.
Eva and David hide from the infected in the abandoned PODs. Together they try to build a life--a new beginning. But the infected follow and are relentless in their attacks. Leaving Eva and David to fight for survival, and pray for a cure.
5 of 5 PODs
PODs is one of the most AMAZING books I have read. I normally don't read books in this genre but lately I have been very drawn to them and I have to say that I am so glad I read this book. I am glad I stepped out of my comfort zone because Michelle Pickett is amazing and her writing just captures you right from page one and keeps you till the very end. Just thinking about the world ending and having to get picked by the government as to whether or not you will live or die is creepy because you never know but it could happen in real life.
Eva is a chosen one. She has been chosen to live in the governments PODs away from the virus that is killing everyone. Alone with no family or friends she is in the POD and she meets David. They become friends and their friendship grows into something more. David is excited he and Eva are finally going to get out of the PODs and maybe they can live a happy life together. But things are not what they seem and when the government opens the PODs and realizes that the virus did not die with the people because it mutated and has caused all the people to become monsters.
Holy Hades what are they going to do? They can't shut the PODs back up because everyone has left the safety of them and everyone is left to fend for themselves. David is determined to save and protect Eva and the two of them decide to stay in empty deserted PODs until they figure out what to do. They will have to fight to survive and stay together but will that be enough? Will the monsters get them? Will they get the virus? What is to come..........
I'm a wife, mother, author, reader, although not always in that order. I've been an avid reader since a young child. I began writing for personal enjoyment in college, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in accounting. Why I chose a degree that didn't encourage creativity is a mystery to me.
I'm addicted to Reese's peanut butter cups and eat way too many while I write. I have a weird obsession with hoodies and can't write without wearing one. I hate to cook, but love to watch cooking shows.
I'm an unabashed romantic and love swoon-worthy happy endings that give me butterflies for days.
Born and raised in Flint, Michigan, I now reside in a small community outside Houston, Texas with my incredibly supportive, not to mention gorgeous, husband, three amazing school-aged children, a 125-pound lap dog, and a cat that thinks she's queen.
I write adult and young adult Sci/Fi, urban fantasy and paranormal romances.
I love to hear from readers and other authors, so drop me a note and say "Hi!"
