It was meant to change the world. To cure the incurable and rebuild the broken. In the right hands, the organism known as Chimera had the potential to alter the course of human civilization for the better. Instead it was abused, rushed. The resulting outbreak caused the dead to rise and shattered everything man had built.
"Brilliant beginning then someone else took a turn?"
During the Outbreak, like billions of others, a man finds himself infected with the Phage. Desperate to spare his family from watching him become a walking nightmare, he flees. Soon after, he is dead. Two years later, he wakes up. Not in the afterlife, but in his own body. Trapped, unable to control the monster that carries him, and forced to witness the horror of its existence.
"much better than expected!"
Kell McDonald killed the world. It is a truth that haunts him every day of his life. It is a fact etched so deeply in his mind that every waking moment is haunted by his sins. But for his choices, the dead would not walk. Men would not travel the decaying highways hunting for victims. Communities of survivors would not have to struggle to lay the foundation of a new society.
Years have passed since the mutated organism known as Chimera caused the dead to rise, and on the ashes of the old world, terrifying new forces have come into play. No longer simple mindless beasts, some of the undead have evolved, becoming stronger, smarter, and more dangerous than ever. They are nothing compared to the looming storm of living people, however, as a nation of starving men and women descend on Kell's new home to threaten everything he has grown to love.
"I want to like this book!"
Five years have passed since the collapse of civilization. The dead still walk the land, but humanity has proven itself strong and resilient. Large settlements have begun to trade, manufacture, and rebuild what was lost. Kell McDonald and his friends continue to work in isolation. On the verge of a breakthrough in their research for a cure, secrecy has never been more vital.
Kell McDonald believed his fight was over. A year after settling with his closest friends in a secluded community, his research into a cure for the plague that ended the world has ground to a halt. When news arrives pointing toward a potential breakthrough, Kell doesn't hesitate. The key to solving the riddle of the Chimera plague might rest in the cells of a small group of people. Unfortunately he isn't the only one looking for them.
