“Plagues and politics and romance, oh my! Dystopia meets science fiction in Emerge, the first book in a new series from popular YA author Heather Sunseri. …Truly, a well-crafted dystopian romance! Don’t miss this one!” - USA Today
Six years ago, a highly contagious virus wiped out more than ninety-nine percent of the country’s population. The only person to contract the virus and survive, Cricket fled her identity and the safety of New Caelum, an airtight city. Now eighteen, she watches the city where the wealthy cocooned from the devastating outbreak. When the city’s rumbling incinerator wakes her one night while she and her friends are camping just beyond the city walls, she alone knows what the fiery machine means: the lethal virus is back.
Only eighteen, Westlin Layne is already being groomed to succeed his mother as New Caelum’s next president. Suddenly West’s sister develops symptoms of the deadly virus thought to be eradicated years ago. Placed under quarantine, the president confesses to West a long-held secret: Christina Black, West’s childhood friend and first love, survived the virus, and her body alone holds the precious antibodies to save his sister.
Now West must leave the city to find Christina. But Cricket has no intention of being found.

I have a feeling that the positive reviews are fake...15
This is the best series to me by far! It will keep you on your toes, and even after the last book, I was still wanting more!!! I had to buy 2 of the 3 but they were definitely worth every penny!55
poor writing and dialogue, confusing actions and plot25
I have not actually sat down and read a book from cover to cover in about 4 years. I recently downloaded this book and finally got a chance to read it and I’m glad I did. It was captivating from the beginning which I loved. This has been one of my favorite books to read!55
I was craving a good dystopian and the Emerge trilogy did not disappoint. It is quite possibly the best dystopian I’ve discovered since Hunger Games and the Divergent series.55
This was the best series ever. I think it would be a great movie. Well worth the money and time.55
Wow! I've been dying to read this book for awhile. When I realized I could download the audiobook to accompany my eBook, I jumped on it and flew through it. I love dystopian, and I truly enjoyed the character development. The first book was neatly tied up while leading perfectly into the next. I'm truly looking forward to continuing the series and heading over to download the eBook and audiobook now.55
I wish the author trusted readers to remember what they read because the amount of recaps each Ch. was frustrating. Nonetheless loved this story & excited to continue the series.45
