This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada

The Mortal Coil Series

Catarina is a hacker – of computers and DNA. This award-winning, science-focused thriller series delves into genetic engineering, coding, and biology – all while its characters are running for their lives in an apocalyptic hellscape created by a virus that literally makes its victims explode.


Emily Suvada is the award-winning author of the Mortal Coil series for young adults. When not writing, she can be found hiking, cycling, and conducting chemistry experiments in her kitchen. She currently lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband and children.
