These two books are about a disease apocalypse called the Worm. Set ten years after the disease nearly wiped out humanity, World Without Flags shows how humanity has survived. But, war between the Gears and the Stars, two opposing factions who want to reunite the ravaged United States. And the Worm resurges.
I particularly liked that the protagonist, Birdie, is a young black woman, but her race is not her defining characteristic. She, to paraphrase the words of Christopher Robin, is … braver than she believes, stronger than she seems, and smarter than she thinks. She risks her own life (and sometimes those of others) to save the one she loves. The book was at times repetitious, especially Birdie’s internal monologue. There are some places where the writing hangs up and where a good editing would have helped, but none of these complaints kept me from finishing the book. That said, in this Covid-19 world, some people may be distressed by reading about the disease, its symptoms, and the effects on the world.
