Lucia Adams, Paul Freeman,
Gerald Johnston, and Sharon Van Orman


Genre: Horror, Post-Apocalyptic


Book Synopsis


Four individuals fight to survive as the zombie apocalypse crashes over the world in a wave of terror and destruction. Color, creed, and social standing mean nothing as the virus infects millions across the planet.

Sharon: a zoologist from Nebraska, USA, has worked with the virus, and has seen the effects on the human mind. She knows more about the virus than nearly anybody alive, and far more than she wants to. Gerry: from Ontario, Canada, he gets his first taste of the virus from inside a prison cell. Locked up after an anti-government riot, his prison guard transforms before his eyes into a flesh craving zombie. 

Lucia: a chemist from Pittsburgh, USA, flees from a furry convention dressed as a giant squirrel, and escapes from the city in a Fed-Ex van. She's a girl who knows when to run and when to fight. Paul: thinks he can sit out the apocalypse in his apartment block in Dublin, Ireland, until the virus comes to visit, bursting his bubble and leaving him with no choice but to face reality or perish. 

All four begin perilous journeys in mind and body as they face daily trials to survive: Four threads, four different parts of the world, one apocalypse!



John B's Review


From the first page I was hooked, the story drew me in and I didn't want to put it down.

There have been many stories written about the zombie apocalypse some good, some not so good, this one was gripping.

The story was told from the viewpoint of each of the main characters as they witnessed the pandemic that turned the dead into flesh eating monsters. Each character had their story of survival to tell and with it I was drawn into their emotions of terror, hope, and quest for survival.

The characters were well written; each ones personality shining through. As I read through their tale I felt as if I was experiencing their horror, their fight for survival became mine; their hope for humanity became mine. I found myself turning each page rooting for them, wanting them to win.

As their stories intertwined the tale kept it’s momentum never missing a beat. Each author blends his or her part of the story seamlessly together binding each character.

If you are a fan of zombie stories this is a must read, the story is full of action, gore, suspension, and even some subterfuge.
