I liked this and if it had been submitted to me, would happily read the rest. I like the quarantine aspect as a scenario and very interested in what happens next.

This is a comment from a publisher judge who asked us to post this comment:

A fascinating scenario and an unlikely hero make for an excellent combination. Fantastic that the situation is (unfortunately) recognizable, but quickly it becomes apparent that there is a greater problem and mystery afoot. Where have the hotel staff gone? What will become of the quarantined occupants? Clear, compelling questions for the reader right off the bat. We’d love to read more.
