    Catarina’s father Cole, one of the world’s
    leading geneticists, has died and taken
    with him humanity’s best chance of
    beating a devastating virus. Or so Catarina
    thinks. But then she realises that Cole
    has created a vaccine – one that only she
    can find and decrypt. As Catarina follows
    the clues Cole has left, she comes under
    the malevolent attention of Cartaxus, a
    shadowy organisation with a stranglehold
    on the world’s genetic tech. Set in a
    genetically and technologically advanced
    future and featuring a strong, clever and
    compassionate heroine, this exciting tale by
    a debut Australian writer will be a hit with
    readers aged 12+.

    Staff Pick:
    This novel is absolutely gripping! Set in a post-apocalyptic, gene-hacked world. Will Catarina find the vaccine before it's too late?
    - Isabel

    When a lone soldier, Cole, arrives with news of Lachlan Agatta's death, all hope seems lost for Catarina. Her father was the world's leading geneticist, and humanity's best hope of beating a devastating virus. Then, hidden beneath Cole's genehacked enhancements she finds a message of hope- Lachlan created a vaccine. Only she can find and decrypt it, if she can unravel the clues he left for her. The closer she gets, the more she finds herself at risk from Cartaxus, a shadowy organization with a stranglehold on the world's genetic tech. But it's too late to turn back. There are three billion lives at stake, two people who can save them, and one final secret that Cat must unlock. A secret that will change everything.
