I got into Infusion pretty quick. After all the action starts right there on the first page, with Rachel lying on her back in the rain after being shot.
The action was pretty much non stop from then on too. It kept my interest all the way through to the end. Especially with the unexpected little twists that popped up.
I liked the idea behind the whole story too. That there are “aliens”? that would love to take over our world, and make an even bigger mess of it than what we are doing ourselves.
If I’d known I was going to die on my sixteenth birthday, I probably would’ve spent a little time on my makeup that morning. As it was, I lay in the field, cold, and all I could think was that I hadn’t even bothered to run a brush through my hair before I left. I mean, at the very least, I could’ve worn earrings. It started to rain, softly at first, and I felt my teeth chattering. No, not felt. Heard. I heard something else, too. Jared sobbing. Loudly.
It was funny—I’d known him all my life, and I’d never heard him cry before. Would he be crying so desperately if he hadn’t been the one who shot me?
About the book:
Infusion by Alyssa Thiessen
Publication Date: July 14, 2017

Rachel is ordinary. Average. Utterly unremarkable… until her best friend shoots her on her 16th birthday and a stranger brings her from death’s doorstep with an infusion of his own DNA.
Then everything gets weird.
She heals impossibly fast. She senses the thoughts of others. She sees places and horrifying creatures that couldn’t possibly exist, and her new friend Tyler is convinced she’s destined to save the world from their invasion.
Can she trust him? Can she trust herself? How’s she supposed to stop inter-dimensional invaders when she can barely deal with high school?
Ready or not, here they come.
About the author:
When she’s not donning her secret identity and saving the world, Thiessen keeps busy writing her next novel, reading something beautiful, teaching high school English, drinking coffee, cycling, and hanging out with her family – husband, kiddies, and miniature schnauzer.
