*Read my reviews of London Eye & Reaper's Legacy*
Jack and his friends are in a race against time to save the remaining inhabitants of a postapocalyptic London from a nuclear bomb.

Two years after London is struck by a devastating terrorist attack, it is cut off from the rest of the world, protected by a large force of soldiers (known as Choppers) while the rest of Britain believe that their ex-capital is a toxic, uninhabited wasteland. But that's not true. Jack and his friends know that the truth is very different-and incredible: the few remaining survivors in London are changing; developing strange, fantastic powers; evolving. And the Chopper force guarding London is treating the ruined city as its own experimental ground.

Now, Jack's powers are growing. His friend Lucy-Anne's powers are developing too, and Nomad-that mysterious woman who started it all-is close by. But the Choppers have initiated their final safeguard-a huge nuclear bomb that will wipe out London, and everyone still within its boundaries. Jack and his friends must spread the news of the bomb and save everyone they can. Before that can happen, Jack must face his father, the deadly Reaper, in their final showdown.
I've been hooked on Tim Lebbon's Toxic City series from the very first: London Eye. With each subsequent novel I became more and more impressed with the author's ability to keep me coming back for more, even as it seems like there is no hope for Jack and his friends. Contagion is one of those novels that keeps you in suspense until the final page, and even then, the final word. I never would have imagined such a bittersweet ending to the story, but there was also a rush of relief that Lebbon did not follow a path easily predicted.

The characters are lively and dynamic, ones that aren't easily forgotten. While the series primarily focused on Jack and Lucy-Anne, there's something about the way Lebbon keeps their friends close to the action that gives the story more heart. If there's one thing I'll remember most about this series it will not just include the action and awesome powers that emerge. Jack and his friends made this series one to which I always eagerly awaited the next installment. The Toxic City series will sit proudly on my bookshelf for years to come!
