Immunity Reviews

  • Adah Udechukwu

    Immunity is a five star novel. It is a worthy end to the duology.

    If you've been around a while, you might remember my sudden and vocal obsession with the first book in this duology last year. I love sci-fi/horror crossover tales, and

    immediately cemented itself as one of my favorites. Between the characters, the plot, Erin's quick and fun writing, and the legitimately

    nature of the infection — coupled with a cliffhanger that I think I can safely say left us all reeling — the release of this finale couldn't possibly get here quickly enough for me.

    While

    is my favorite of the two installments, and

    differs from it in a lot of ways, I still thought this was such a satisfying, fun, suspenseful end to the series. We got to spend more time with a couple of previously loved characters, but we also met someone new: Amber Farraday, a medic-intern who wants to do the right thing despite having plenty of motivation not to. Nova was still a struggle for me at times, much like I remembered her being in the first book, but how could I do anything

    love Thea and Coen with their miserable little situations? These poor kids go through hell and then some, but they're so tough nevertheless.

    Despite the fact that a lot of time is dedicated to the characters and a couple of romances — one of them being

    (f/f) — Erin Bowman's got a knack for weaving that into these plots that never really slow down or give you any breathing room. This was the fourth book I've read by her, and I'm always impressed by how

    I go through her books; they're the types of things you don't want to put down until you reach the end, because nobody feels "safe" and the twists and threats don't stop coming.

    The only reason this is a little bit less lovable for me than

    was is that, while the first book meshed sci-fi and horror beautifully, the second book is definitely straight-up science fiction. Though the entire plot does more or less revolve around this terrifying infection, this one is more about the threats that other

    create, and there's also a fair bit of what I call "space sci-fi", where the focus falls more on spacecrafts, travel, time-space warping, etc. None of that was bad by any means, but I did find myself missing the spooky atmosphere of

    from time to time.

    All in all,

    didn't leave me disappointed or needing more; it ties up the loose ends nicely and felt like a tremendously

    finish to the duology (which is a huge compliment from me, considering how often I'm disappointed by finales). I think Erin Bowman is such a force to be reckoned with and I can't wait to see what she creates next.

  • Stephani Beltran

    This was a highly anticipated book for me as Contagion was a 5 star read. Full review to come soon but 4 solid stars for sure.

    This is going to be a pretty brief review but here it is anyway.

    I really enjoyed this novel and it had a very satisfying ending. Something I was honestly worried about, as all of my recent science fiction reads have been very disappointing. But we’re not here to talk about them.

    Even though the ending was satisfying, I still am going to give this 3.5 stars. Why? Because it was not even 25% as scary or page-turning as

    . It suffered from a severe case of Middle Book Syndrome (Yes, I know it’s not the middle book but don’t @ me). I did enjoy the focus on Thea and Coen. So heartwarming. And I also enjoyed the race to save the universe from the corrupted government.

    While yes, this book was great, it felt a lot more like a political thriller than a science fiction horror that focused more on the characters and plot than the good scares of the first book.

    Bottom Line:

    . Considering the first book in this duology was one of my top 5 reads for 2018, I was equal parts nervous and excited because my own expectations sometimes ruin a book for me. But I didn't need to worry.

    .

    raises the stakes and we learn a lot more about the world as our characters find out that escaping from Achlys was just the beginning... turns out their rescue ship has turned into a prison, and there's a reason that Hevetz was on Achlys despite the debacle with Witch Hazel fifty years prior. A certain conspiracy theorist was right all along.

    The book picks up at the exact moment where

    ends. Thea and Coen are taken into custody and it's quickly learned that the two of them managed to survive the infection the wiped out all of Black Quarry. Considering they are essentially now superhuman, that doesn't bode well for them: they are poked, prodded, and tortured to test the breadth of their abilities.

    Where the theme of Contagion was mistrust and fear, our characters have to learn to trust one another and themselves in Immunity. And looking at their journey across the duology, it is really satisfying to see their growth.

    I really enjoyed how Coen, Thea, and Nova grow through the course of this book.

    Even with the hive-mind telepathy ability, Coen and Thea continue to be their own people. We do have a new addition to our teen cast of characters: Amber Farraday, who is my new favorite. Caught in the case of wrong-place-wrong-time, she has to make a number of difficult decisions. I love when characters do the hard thing, and she is just a bamf.

    . I thought that the bonding vs. feelings debate our characters had worked well to subvert the insta-love trope

    .

    . The events of Contagion were horrific, and the survivors were forced to do things in order to survive. Nova's struggle hit home for me and it brought a very real component to the story.

    I can't help but think about the duology as a whole. The overarching plot makes sense; however, the two books feel different.

    This book is about survival, but the enemy is of the human variety rather than zombie-like horror. The political groundwork was laid in Contagion, and that is the framework for

    .

    I appreciated the plotting of this duology and am

    . All my questions were answered by the end of this book. This sequel is just as fast-paced and gripping as the first book, and I devoured it in one sitting! This is more strictly a science fiction story than the horror mashup in the first book, but you can tell the entire duology was intricately plotted and it feels right. I loved the book and can't recommend it enough to fans of science fiction, and gave this 4.5 stars!

    is a little different in the sense that it is more about the survival and logical aspect of it, instead of the exploring. i really liked it though. i assume some people would want to stay for the thrills and creepiness, but if you're expecting that here, you're not gonna find it.

    but i enjoyed the change of tone. i think last books in series should always be a bit different than the others for obvious reasons. otherwise, it doesn't feel like an ending. this, apart from what i mentioned before, focuses more on the characters and their build-up, though you should keep in mind that these are not character-driven books.

    okay, first of all: thea and coen...😩❤️️ i loved their dynamic and growth since

    and i've honestly been shipping them since that bunker scene mY GOSH I LOVE THEM. their interest in each other is pretty justified considering their situation and what they're been through and it's been slow-burn from the start, so there's no reason for me to not like it.

    there was something thea said (well, the author did) that i've not been able to get out of my head because i can

    relate and it's giving me such a...scorpio vibe? is thea a scorpio? I CLAIM HER AS ONE OF US. even besides that, i've felt very connected to thea for some reason. i'm usually more interested in the side characters than the main one, so it's not very common that i'd follow the MC so closely. nova gives me MAJOR raven vibes from the tv show,

    . the resemblance is just so uncanny—sometimes i even confused her mental face with lindsey morgan from the show.

    i also think it's worth mentioning that i adore bowman's PTSD portrayal. i love how she doesn't hold back from difficult feelings/situations. every one of them is so raw and perfect and it made the story that much more realistic.

    but of course, the downfalls. my main problem was just the lack of probing a bit deeper into the characters. if a teen character is skilled at something, i’d really like to know why. we never get these explanations for nova

    and thea, a seventeen-year-old med intern who is going to find a cure for a planetary virus. yes, i get being good at something, but their skills were just so conveniently used that i found them unbelievable.

    however, this duology is so gorgeous inside and out. i'd forever be thankful for jay kristoff for recommending this to me as well as being a hella good author himself. everyone: READ these books if you ever need a fast-paced, creepy, healthy dose of sci-fi.

  • Justine

    Not as good as the first book,

    , but not bad.

  • Katerina Kondrenko

    A bit worse than the first installment. Still fast-paced, still nicely written, but I'd prefer it to be a story about a virus and zombies instead of an open-world story. Also too much romance. I'm shocked I say it! I'm always up for kissing and tension, but I needed horror here. Despite the cons, I liked this series much. Yes, it has genre cliches, but everything is tropes, so... Hope the author would write more stories in the style of

    to give us chills)

  • Yodamom

    I really enjoyed the first book, loved the tension, the mystery the action, it worked with the characters and their world fit very well. This one didn't. The main characters seemed to have reverted in age and common sense. The story became ridiculous. It was filled with fantastical moments all just when needed, the eye rolling almost gave me a headache. I wished I'd left it at book 1, it was ending enough.

  • Lata

    Not sure: 3-3.5 stars. I’m annoyed by a plot point I found implausible, which was critical to moving the story forward.
