Superbugs: Dawn of Freedom by Tayma Tameem tells the story of a pandemic era protracted by greed and personal interest.
For seventy years, the residents were kept in residential plants. The pandemic era demanded that you sit in a box waiting for a vaccine that may never come or risk going into the outside world with more pressing and savory demands.
The residential plants led by Lily Brayburn have moved to a safe house owned by the "resistance," a group resisting the government's policy. This was after an attack on it by Faulkner, a narcissist gnome. Faulkner was after a pregnant lady. He needed the baby the woman was carrying because he wanted to use her as a test subject to exchange resources. The safe house, located in a dangerous neighborhood, is surrounded by a virus cure crew. This crew is known for kidnapping humans to be used as test subjects for vaccines in exchange for resources. What fate awaits the residential planets?
The most vital attributes of this book are character development and the romantic element. Tayma creates relatable characters. Two of the most inspiring characters are Ben and Mable. Their love story forms a significant highlight of the book. Their love is so organic that the reader will wish any of them to be their lover. This romantic aspect flowed seamlessly into the central plot of the story. In the narrative, the sanitary precaution had denied young people the chance of falling in love. However, the people's hope grew when they saw Ben and Mabel together. Ben and Mable awoke the resident's longing for romance. They hope that the resistance will remove the embargo, and young people will no longer be denied the beauty of love.
To support an excellent character development is an impeccable characterization. With an unapologetically realistic delivery packed with emotions, this book is fierce in character description. The elegance and care with which the author describes her characters add richness and depth to the text. This makes the book very relatable. There is no mix-up in any way. Every character was distinct in their personalities, especially the ones with code names. The reader does not have to worry about confusing one character for another.
Events are arranged in an orderly pattern. The book's intricate flow of dialogue and dramatic descriptive style is second to none. The plot is unpredictable and suspense-filled and is sure to keep readers glued to their seats to the very last page. I tried to predict the fate of Mabel's unborn child but was blown away by the twist with which Tayma hit me. I am in love with the style and language of the book.
The editing of this book is commendable; the errors are minimal and not distracting. I immensely enjoyed reading the book without the interruptions of grammatical errors. There aren't any significant dislikes I have about the book. I'm only worried that Lily's condition was not made clear at the end of the book; maybe I will have to hold on to Victory's revelation and hope that she will be fine.
I rate this book four out of four stars. It has minor errors that are not enough to discredit the author's work or the editors in any way. I recommend this book to lovers of adventures and people inspired by stories about the struggle for freedom from oppression.
