Something virulent. Something evil. Something new. And it is infecting the town of Falls Breath.
Carried to Earth in a freak meteor shower, an alien virus has infected the animals. Pets and wildlife have turned rabid, attacking without warning. Dogs and cats terrorize their owners, while deer and wolves from the neighboring woods hunt in packs, stalking and killing their human prey without mercy.
As the town comes under siege, Lauren searches for her boyfriend, while her policeman father fights to restore some semblance of order against a threat unlike anything he has seen before. The Natural Order has been upended completely, and nowhere is safe.
…and it is spreading.
Soon, the city will find itself in the grips of mass hysteria.
To survive, humanity will have to fight tooth and nail. – Goodreads.com
Wow. This was brutal, gory, shocking. In all fairness, the author warned me it might be more than I was expecting – and admittedly it was. But as a horror fan, I couldn’t look away.
Maybe I’m unnaturally twisted, but scenes involving adult human deaths don’t really bother me – make them as grisly as you like. Same with The Walking Dead. But. Involve animals or children, and I’m inclined to skim through those parts. Considering pets and wildlife are rabid and attacking – I’m sure you can fill in the blanks. You’ve been warned.
I’ve read several other books by this author, and he has a knack for creating kick-ass female characters. They play the hand they’re dealt, and play it so very well. No curling into the fetal position and accepting their fate.
Because of the graphic nature of this book, I’d only recommend it to die-hard horror fans. And for those die-hard fans – you’re in for a treat.
I received a copy of this book from the author.
