The Camellia Resistance by A.R. Williams
In a post-apocalyptic world where everyone is obsessed with hygiene and STDs, Ministry of Health statistician, Willow Carlyle, has just ruined her entire life through a few reckless nights of passion. The premise of “The Camellia Resistance,” the first book in the Camellias Trilogy, was interesting enough, but the execution was not up to par. I feel just “meh” about this one. Some of the characters were sympathetic and the writing was decent. However, some of the scenes were unnecessarily salacious and the idea that herpes gave some of the characters superpowers was strange. I doubt that I will continue reading this trilogy, but other people seem to enjoy it. Ultimately, it was just not my cup of tea.
