Kill or Cure ( The Afterblight Chronicles )

We all go a little crazy sometimes…

Jasmine has spent five years underground, locked in a secret government bunker. Outside, the world has gone to hell, a mysterious virus killing all but 1 in 20 of the world’s population. It’s enough to drive anyone mad – but Jasmine’s crazier than most. The cure she was working on had an unexpected side effect, psychotic symptoms which only powerful drugs can suppress.

Jasmine’s rescuers, the pirate rulers of the New Caribbean, don’t care. They need Jasmine’s help to discover what it is that has turned the inhabitants of Cuba into rabid killers. Jasmine’s quest to find a cure for this new plague, as well as for her own madness, draws her across the fractured continent of America and into the darkest recesses of her own past.
