Publisher's summary

A prehistoric patient zero. An infectious primal hunger. Some discoveries are better left buried.

Research Station, Siberia. Madison Price would go to the ends of the Earth to be part of archeological history. So, when a team of scientists uncover an ice-preserved Neanderthal, she puts a personal tragedy to the side to exhume the body. But after one of the scientists starts exhibiting strange, violent symptoms, Madison fears their discovery has unleashed a lethal virus.

With the remote lab under a panicked lockdown, Madison's dream excavation decays into a waking nightmare. As more members of the team turn rabid, the archaeologist and the remaining survivors may be humanity's last hope.

Can Madison contain the epidemic before it's unleashed upon the world?

Catalyst is the prequel in a gripping post-apocalyptic zombie series. If you like strong-minded heroes, race-against-the-clock suspense, and undead encounters, then you'll love Derek Shupert's action-packed ride.

Buy Catalyst to watch a zombie virus come to life today!

Nice Listen

This a a Quick looking the series as a reader of the zombie or apocalyptic genre you normally don’t get to start a series with books 0 so with me doing it this time I wanna see how it changes the stories but this is a good indication of this series is going to be good.

Terrible Narrator

The narrator, B.C. Archer, is terrible. He is so robotic and sounds like a male version of Alexa. The book itself wasn't too bad. Probably would have been better with a better narrator.
