It's the year 2142, and the world has truly gone insane. Long story short, North Korea lured, blackmailed, and imprisoned a group of scientists to create a lethal, contagious, virulent virus with no cure which is nearly 100% fatal. But that wasn't nearly enough for North Korea's Mighty Leader. A separate team creates a drug that addicts instantaneously with just one dose. Both the virus and the drug are dubbed "Kite." Mixing the two, giving the virus-laced drug to addicts in the prison camp where the labs are located, is insanity. But when inmates escape, fleeing over the border into China, that's when all hell breaks loose. To stop the spread of this lunacy, China nukes North Korea into oblivion. But that doesn't stop Kite (the drug or the virus). It just ends North Korea. Soon, all of Asia is infected with Kite and battling nuclear radiation. Enter the Drunk Monkeys, SOTIF Team 1. Their mission? Find out if any of the scientists who created Kite (the virus) are still alive, acquire them, and bring them back to the States to create a cure. They're the world's only hope!
Fast forward to March 2143. Celia Jorgens is young newspaper researcher from Chicago who desperately wants to be a reporter. The whole Kite situation is hardly a secret but, for now, it hasn't truly affected America. Her fellow researcher, Mike, is a genius with computers, hacking and accessing all kinds of information. With Mike's help, Celia learns that one of the scientists on the "List," Dr. Pho Quong, has escaped North Korea with his family, emigrating to Australia. Celia's never had a reporting job before, never even left the country. With Kite rampaging across the world, she's more than scared and uncertain. But she wants this story so badly. With Mike's help, she pushes her fears aside and heads down under to Oz.
The Drunk Monkeys are also on their way to Oz. They have the same intel as Celia, but they're better trained and equipped. As they make their way from Vietnam to Australia, they finalize their plans to find Dr. Quong and his family and take them to safety. Little do they know that their plans have put them on a collision course with not only Celia but others, unknown people and factors. As events go sideways, Celia, the Drunk Monkeys, Dr. Quong, and maybe the entire continent of Australia, are put at risk in a way from which they may never recover.
From here, the story takes off in a million different directions, seemingly all at once. Will Celia be successful in locating Dr. Quong or will the Drunk Monkeys get there before her? Can any of them avoid the ever growing Kite epidemic? Can they even find Dr. Quong? If so, will he be able to reverse engineer a cure? And what about all those unknowns? They're certainly not out there for kicks. The Drunk Monkeys have enemies, more than they know. There are so many questions, so many ways this could go wrong.
The Drunk Monkeys series is one of the best series I've ever read! Who knew when Tymber Dalton first wrote this series that it would be so timely and current in 2016/17? It again demonstrates just how fantastic Tymber Dalton is as an author. She crosses genres with such apparent ease and talent. This series was first published in 2014, long before today's world situations, but it so closely creates today's climate of political changes, rises in the power of evangelical/fundamentalist Christian movements, and the surge in megachurches and their influence over nearly every aspect of American life, it's eerily predictive. That it is also dead-on accurate about other current world events is even more scary than you can imagine. This series is amazingly brilliant in ways you can't envision.
As always, I have one final note. This is an ADULT book. It contains very explicit language and sexual scenes. If you don't enjoy military action/adventure with erotic romance and explicit sexual scenes, PLEASE think carefully before buying a book you won't enjoy. There are always synopses and reviews available on Goodreads, Facebook review pages, and every booksellers' website. Please use these resources so you're certain the book you're buying is one you want to read. PLEASE DON'T LEAVE A BAD REVIEW WHEN YOU KNOW YOU WON'T ENJOY THE BOOK. IT'S NOT FAIR TO THE AUTHOR! She works extremely hard to provide quality work. If you know you'll object to the subject matter before you buy a book, you're doing yourself and the author an extreme disservice.
I highly recommend the entire Drunk Monkeys series. You'll definitely want to read each book in order so you won't miss a moment of the action or the chain of events in this truly fantastic series. I can't give any higher praise to a series than to say it's equally as relevant and important as 1984, Brave New World, or The Handmaid's Tale. I give this entire series my highest recommendation without reservation. You won't be sorry you read it!
Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!
I normally don't care much for post-apocalyptic stuff (I also don't like monkeys drunk or sober, but thankfully, it's just a code name), but since it's Tymber Dalton, I thought I'd give it a go. I'm glad I did.
My only big criticism is that it was really too short. This is a BIG world that Dalton is building, and she focuses a lot of the book on setting everything up. Even the bad guy in this (who really does creep me out) has his own chapters set in his POV. Seriously, the guy is FUBAR. Very creepy.
The only other criticism is that due to the amount of information we're given, there's very little set up for the main characters: reporter Ceclia and the Special Ops guys of Tango and Doc. Don't get me wrong, when they do finally get together, they're hot, but compared to the author's other books, they don't have much time together. I'm hoping that since this is the first book in what is supposed to be a 10 book series, the next books will have more pages devoted to the main romance. My only other concern is that there are two members of the Drunk Monkeys with code names of Papa and Uncle and it'll be awkward reading their stories, lol.
This also seems to be a series where it will be imperative that you read them in order, so make sure you start with this one. All in all, I really enjoyed reading this and I just ordered the second book from Bookstrand.
