She’s on a desperate quest to protect her family. But will defending them save the planet or result in her doom?
Alyx Silverthorne’s broken world is falling apart. With her parents dead and her little brother Tommy infected, she fears she’s about to lose everything that matters. But when her beloved sibling dies and returns to life stronger than before, their only choice is a dangerous cross-country journey to the capital for answers.
Teaming up with her deserter uncle and the best friend in love with her, they arrive at a secret military base wondering if Tommy is in fact the cure. But the affection of a strapping young soldier is cold comfort when his sinister commander takes a terrifying interest in her family.
Will Alyx survive the lies of the living or be consumed by the mouths of the dead?

*I received the book by the publisher in exchange of an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are unbiased.*
As the synopsis suggests, Kill or Cure is a story which focuses on the relationships between Alyx and her family and their attempt to keep her brother Tommy safe after he seems he may have succumbed to the virus. As a dystopian YA, this novel had a lot to unwrap and I loved every bit of it!
When it comes to the plot, I would say that it indeed was quite well planned. For me, the pacing seemed a bit slow but when the plot finally took its pace, I was deeply engrossed and could not keep the book down!
The characters were one of the best I have come across in a long time. Be it the protagonists or the side characters, they were really portrayed and their development was something which I really admired.
The writing style I believe was quite impressive. Further, the writing style did even make me overlook the initial slow pacing of the storyline and eventually finish this book much faster than I thought I would.
