New Zealand-based author Michael Green has hit a winner here with the first book in a trilogy about a family whose descendants are the only people to survive a fatal flu virus that sweeps the world.  In Bloodline the Chatfield family appear to be the only people in the entire world to have avoided the 100% fatal pandemic that surges around the world before any cure can be found.  However, this does not become the utopia you might think.  More in line with the old adage “you can choose your friends but you can’t choose your relations”. I’m betting if you were in certain branches of the Chatfield family, you would be more comfortable with the friends option.

Green has developed a fast-paced, well-written tale with enough twists and turns to keep you turning the pages and by the end, wanting the next in the series.
