Kalahari by Jessica Khoury

Summary:

DEEP IN THE KALAHARI DESERT, A CORPUS LAB PROTECTS A DANGEROUS SECRET

BUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THAT SECRET TAKES ON A LIFE OF ITS OWN?

WHEN AN EDUCATIONAL SAFARI GOES WRONG, five teens find themselves stranded in the Kalahari Desert without a guide. It’s up to Sarah, the daughter of zoologists, to keep them alive and lead them to safety, calling on survival know-how from years of growing up in remote and exotic locales. Battling dehydration, starvation, and the pangs of first love, she does her best to hold it together, even as their circumstances grow increasingly desperate.

But soon a terrifying encounter makes Sarah question everything she’s ever known about the natural world. A silver lion, as though made of mercury, makes a vicious, unprovoked attack on the group. After a narrow escape, they uncover the chilling truth behind the lion’s silver sheen: a highly contagious and deadly virus that threatens to ravage the entire area-and eliminate life as they know it.

In this breathtaking new novel by the acclaimed author of Origin and Vitro, Sarah and the others must outrun not only the virus but also its creators, who will stop at nothing to wipe out every trace of it.
