Book Description (via Goodreads): Five years after working triage during America’s terrible Day of Destruction, Philadelphian Dr. Ethan King wants nothing more for himself and his wife than a normal life. In the aftermath, however, life is anything but normal. The mysterious nerve gas unleashed during the nationwide terrorist attack has left its disturbing mark among the millions of victims, namely brain abnormalities in unborn children. These children, dubbed inexorables, love up to their name: they are ruthlessly violent, irrepressibly psychopathic-and incurable. They kill without thought or remorse, and inflict torment on their victims with childish glee. In his pursuit of a normal, peaceful life, Ethan tries as best he can to put these grim realities to the back of his mind. But one cold night, when he comes face to face with an abandoned inexorable freezing to death in the snow, he must make a choice that could cost him everything, and unravel a thread of dark woven secrets. As he races to find a cure for whatever is creating a generation of doomed children, Ethan discovers that doing the right thing in an evil world is never as clear and easy as it seems.
I received Children of Wrath by T. A. Ward in exchange for an honest review. I have given this book four out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I thoroughly enjoyed the concept of this book, recently I’ve been really thriving for more thriller/apocalyptic/virus stories and thought this story was quite refreshing to other virus type ones I’ve read.
I really liked T. A. Ward’s writing throughout the book as well and was intrigued where the story was heading. Ward’s writing was very descriptive and helped set the scenes I conjured up through my imagination. There are quite a few gory parts in this book, but come on, what do you expect – it’s a frickin’ thriller story!
I thought that her characters weren’t as developed as they could have been, however I did have a soft spot for Dr Ethan King and Liz and desperately wanted the best things for them due to the saddening reality that they are unable to have children. This story had me from the very first page and I found it difficult to put the book down as I wanted to know what was going to happen after every event that occurred.
I love that the main concept of this book is unconditional love. Unconditional love is such a beautiful, real thing and I think it was a fantastic main focus that the author chose to write about.
I don’t want to give too much of this story away as I think it’s definitely one you should go into with just the book description in mind. I look forward to reading more material from T. A. Ward!
I would definitely recommend this book to fans of apocalyptic and thriller stories.
