Quick and often suspenseful read that has me scared half to death over the possibility of a genetically engineered super-smallpox being released in the world. Some countries (if you believe what is written here) have such a thing; Russia one of them. The book follows the Anthrax scare, too. It also describes the super-human effort taken to eradicate smallpox from the world. Excellent reading.

I can't say I loved this book, although I wanted to. I love Maria Snyder's Study series and I love dystopian science fiction. To me this seemed like a match made in heaven. It was good. Just not great. I really liked the main character. Trella as likeable and her reactions to things were realistic. She wasn't a giddy little girl who swooned at the slightest thing like so many YA heroines these days. And I liked Cog and Riley quite a bit too. The chemistry between Trella and the two men was nice. And I loved that it wasn't a love triangle in any way. Just a good, lifelong friend and new friend who may have potential for more. That was definitely more like real life, despite the dystopian setting. And there was a couple of twists that I enjoyed - both where Outside really was and the cliffhanger ending. I didn't expect either. So while this wasn't my favorite book by Snyder, it was definitely worth 3.5 stars. And I plan on reading Outside In as soon as I can.
