Book Review: The Missing by Teri Terry

Contagion Teri Terry

Teri Terry fast became one of those authors who every time released a new book, I just had to read it. Not since I read the Slated trilogy has she ever let me down. Each one of her books is tense, gripping and of course highly unputdownable. I can once again say the same for her latest: The Missing. An intense and shocking read that has left me in huge suspense for the next instalment.


A deadly virus has spread throughout the UK, quarantining those in areas affected. No one knows where it came from or what started it, but Callie who went missing a year ago might have the answer... 

This is one of those stories where you become instantly hooked. I just HAD to find out what exactly was going on. Split between main characters, Callie and Shay, there is a constant flitting back and forth between the two and at the beginning in particular, Callie's part had me gripped. I wasn't exactly rushing through Shay's point of view, but I guess you could say I was hungry for more info on where Callie was and what had happened to her. However the chapters are super short, so it will have you whizzing through. It became one of those books that I just could not wait to get back to after work.

The scary thing about Contagion is that you can imagine it happening for real. We really have no idea what 'the army' or the government agents are up to behind the scenes. I really hope it's not true though and that we never get an epidemic here!

This is a rollercoaster of a read! It's fast paced, unpredictable and holds you in its thrall the whole way through!

Teri never ceases to delight me with her stories as even though they are all of the dystopian genre, they each have such a unique story. Teri is also has left us with another cliffhanger; she knows how to get her readers coming back for me. Hurry up with the second instalment pretty please Teri.
