The Plague Legacy: Acquisitions 
by Christine Haggerty

Print Length: 229 pages

Publisher: Fox Hollow Publications


Book Description:

Half a century after the world was decimated by a bio-engineered plague, military scouts are acquisitioning a new supply of exports—slaves.

With his family dead, sixteen-year-old Cameron Landry is a reluctant survivor, haunted by nightmares and bound by promises. When he and his worst enemy, Devon, are both selected for shipment to a civilization called Salvation, Cam suddenly has nowhere to run. Devon is a mutant, stronger and faster, and his hatred for Cam grows with each passing day. As Cam makes friends, and finds a surprising ally in Devon’s twin sister, Tara, he learns a secret that could change everything.

But Devon is on the hunt, and Cam is running out of places to hide.

Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published.
Since being published, my most rewarding experience is having a reason to write another book.

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
Read The Plague Legacy: Acquisitions to find out if you’d have a chance of surviving in a plague-riddled post-apocalyptic world.

Favorite food?
I love anything Asian.

What book are reading now?
I am reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban right now. I have never read the series, and my kids recommended that’s how I should spend my limited reading time.

What’s your favorite season/weather?
I am in love with the summer time. I love to bike, walk my dogs, and make the kids play outside.

What was your favorite children's book?
I have a special place for The Velveteen Rabbit, although I didn’t read it until I had my own children.

Beach or Pool?
Beach. Every time. 

What is one book everyone should read?
I am a huge fan of Illusions by Richard Bach. After reading that, I truly believed in making my own reality.

Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?
I am currently working on the second book in the series, The Plague Legacy: Assets, and I have a novella coming out based on a Grimm fairytale, The Robber Bridegroom.
