Review: In the Wreckage by Hailey Turner

Reviewed by Olive

In the Wreckage is the first book in Hailey Turner’s Metahuman Files series. In a future world, a deadly virus called ‘Splice’ is being used as a biological weapon, killing nearly anyone it comes into contact with by destabilising their DNA. A small percentage of people infected not only survive but come away with newly activated metahuman abilities. The story follows Captain Jamie Callahan, former Recon Marine turned Metahuman Defense Fund officer, and his paranormally enhanced team as they go out on missions standard issue humans can’t cope with.

Alas, Alpha Team hasn’t been able to keep a sniper. Enter Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan, a one-night stand that turns into the sniper newly assigned to Jamie’s team. Awkward much? Yep, and I’m so here for it. (Caution: low level spoilers ahead!)
