For eighteen-year-old Aurora Mayfield, the lethal pandemic was just the beginning.
After an unknown virus sweeps across the globe, Aurora and two other survivors seek out safety in a bomb shelter with enough supplies to last a few years. Just as she starts to adapt to her new way of life, she is suddenly abducted by those responsible for introducing the disease, and is taken farther from home than she's ever been before.
She doesn't know what they want from her, but she soon discovers the truth: about her captors, the universe, and who she really is--a reality that leaves her breathless.

Maybe take the exclamation mark out. The bang already implies it was loud.

This was a great first chapter! You've eased the reader into this post-apocalyptic world you have created, and I'm definitely interested in what the future holds for these characters. Love the fast-paced desciptions, and look forward to reading more!

This book is really interesting, I love stories with these types of diseases in them. The first chapter really hooks the reader, leaves him wanting to know more about the plot. It's full of action and suspense. Can't imagine someone reading this chapter and not wanting to go on.
I was hooked IMMEDIATELY!! Amazing job so far, can't wait to keep reading!

Love this so much, it is so interesting and the writing style is absolutely amazing. 
                              This book can (if you want, I'm sorry if my offer sounds shallow or mean here) qualify for our campaign. 
                              We will continue reading and giving feedback on this book either way. :) xx

There's honestly nothing to critique about your writing style or the plot of the story. It was very engaging and action packed. I would offer some further advice but with such a talented writer like yourself I really don't think you need any.
