Today I am reviewing The Contaminants by Devin K. Smyth.

Blurb: When America attempts to “purify” earth to maintain its own dominance, it sparks a worldwide nuclear holocaust. Teen friends Jessil and Soraj are among the few survivors. They escaped on a cruiser that now orbits the planet and is designed to help regenerate the earth’s ecosystem. Soraj’s father leads the regeneration process and is hopeful that he can salvage a region in North America for the cruiser’s return.

But when Jessil discovers a message indicating her own father may have survived the holocaust back on earth, she’s determined to rescue him immediately with Soraj’s aid. Can they succeed even though the planet they return to is very different from the one they left—and that their success could mean failure for the regeneration process?

My review: Everybody’s nightmare, a major nuclear confrontation that  is suppose to wipe out all life on earth. Worse it is a plan by the government to rid the earth of the people and repopulate it with only the chosen ones that meet their requirements. Science has discovered ways to purify the air and ground after a blast so the plan proceeds aided by large military and GMO companies they will purify the earth and start new life. Things go seriously wrong however. The regeneration is “off”. Some people do survive the blast so the ones on the survival ships see them as contaminants and decide they must be eliminated. The plot to this book is great and the action is fairly fast paced. A entertaining read. Some mild editing issues but nothing to put you off the story line. I would recommend this one to people that enjoy apocalyptic  books. I give it a three star.
