Eight years ago the December Plague swept through the human population of earth. The Infected were driven mad by the disease, becoming violent and cannibalistic, killing even those closest to them without hesitation. Six years ago, the tiny surviving community of Immune humans found a cure, and the Infected began to wake up and realize what they’d done. Over time, society has begun to rebuild itself. It’s now ready to judge those responsible for the Plague. Nella Rider, the court psychologist and Frank Courtlen a defense attorney are trying to establish the truth. But more depends on it than they know. Can they find the answers they need before the fragile remains of humanity vanish for good?
This is zombie fiction at it’s best!
The plot is captivating and it’s scary to think that there are people out in our world TODAY crazy enough to pull off something like this. It also shows the lengths the human spirit will go to survive. The characters are well-defined and Frank and Nella have such good chemistry that you can’t help but route for them. Though this book is a good “stand alone” it is the first of three in a series and I will definitely be reading those in the future.
If you like post-apocalyptic stories or the zombie genre, this book is for you!
