Mit ‘Lex Thomas’ getaggte Beiträge

We thought it was like summer camp here, and you all were chilling in a safe, clean school. Then, we get here and it’s like one big battlefield, you guys all hate each other, the whole place is trashed! I mean, what the hell happened, how did it get like this?
Gates in Quarantine – The Saints

The Saints is the second installment in the very dark Quarantine series. It picks up right where the previous book The Loners left off. McKinley High is still under military quarantine after a virus outbreak 18 months ago. The school drowns in chaos, it seems to be like a huge battleground. When the doors finally open, Will and Lucy think that the nightmare is over. They have no idea that even worse things are yet to come. A new gang enters the school headed by the charismatic Gates. This new group, nicknamed The Saints, according to their private school they went to before, almost immediately gains popularity among the other students. They turn the school’s former hierarchy upside down whereas the gang of The Loners falls apart. The Loners one by one scatter to all different gangs. Will finally ends up with The Saints. At first this seems to be a lucky opportunity for him to regain his social status but soon he has to fight harder than ever to survive.

The siblings David and Will Thorpe have lived alone ever since their mom died in a car accident more than nine months ago and their dad had to leave for a big job. Their mother’s death still feels unreal to David but he has to put his feelings aside because he has to play surrogate father to his epileptic younger brother.

Both are very nervous about their first day of school at brand new McKinley High. Will is a freshman and afraid that the other pupils might tease him because of his epileptic seizures. David on the other side of course wants to help his little brother to have a good start at his new school, but really messed up things for himself the day before. At a party he started a fight with his former teammates because his girlfriend Hilary cheated on him with Sam, his worst opponent in the team. Now, David worries that he might be an outcast himself with all his friends against him. But his worst fears don’t come close to the horror that he has to face when he and Will enter McKinley High.

A few moments after their arrival a huge explosion rocks the whole school and a deadly virus is unleashed. The virus was illegally engineered by a weapon manufacturer, situated in the immediate neighborhood of the school. It only infects pubescent teenagers and makes them fatally poisonous to any adult or young children who come within a few feet of the teenagers. The consequence: within a few minutes every faculty member dies and the military quarantines the building.  (mehr …)
