Review: Acquisitions


by Christine Haggerty 

Fox Hollow launches their first release Friday, December 7th. Acquisitions is the first volume of The Plague Legacy, a trilogy placed a desolate Earth riddled with plague, mutants, and many other dangers a dying world brings. The series opener takes you across the United States and Atlantic Ocean to the orphan Cam’s new home—Salvation.

In a dystopian world decimated by a bio-enhanced plague, military scouts are acquisitioning a new supply of exports—slaves.

When he is selected for shipment to a civilization called Salvation, sixteen-year-old Cameron Landry suddenly has nowhere to run from his worst enemy. Devon is a mutant, stronger and faster and his hatred for Cam grows with each passing day. As Cam makes friends, and finds a surprising ally in Devon’s twin sister, Tara, he learns a secret that could save mankind.

But Devon is on the hunt, and Cam is running out of places to hide…

Christine masterfully paints a very ugly picture of the terrors of biological warfare. If you love Dystopian, Acquisitions hits home on all the right places. Filled with hopelessness, and desolation, this YA novel walks you through the real life horror of an existence surrounded by death and social distrust. It is reminiscent of Lord of the Flies, mixed with The Stand, and The Hunger Games

Acquisitions will be available through Amazon starting Friday!
