Book Review: Poisoned Iris By Cindy Mezni

Hello Everyone and New Followers,

My name is Samantha. I just reached 300 amazing followers. I post on Mondays, Wednesdays And Fridays.

I received this book for a honest review from the author.




About the book(Goodreads):

Athens was once the cradle of civilization. Now it’s slowly but surely becoming the tomb of humanity.

The Red Plague, a violent virus which had run rampant decades ago, left its imprint on the planet and the flesh of men. All that remains of the modern world is an endless wasteland of ruins—Erebos—and two cities—Elysion, the obscure island of the Non-Infecteds about which no one knows a thing, and, Tartaros, the crumbling town of the Infecteds where despair, hatred, violence and poverty are the operative words.

And at the heart of this universe lives Irisya, a sixteen-year-old Non-Infected girl, staying recluse in her home to be safe and relying on her brother, Memphis, for everything.

But then, one day, he disappears without a trace.

Irisya has no choice. To save him, to survive, she will have to brave all the dangers of the outside world.


My Thougthts:

I really love how the author kept Irisya as innocence character  for most of the book.  I also like the fact it didn’t just show one side of the story but show all expects of how the illness effected everyone from the poor to the rich.

I love the world building  and the development of all characters not just Irisya.

My only problem was that when Irisya was running through the town to get from point a to b. Every building was in good shape and fine. I would have love to see building that have been burnt down and roof missing roof tiles.


I give this book 4 stars out of 5 stars.
