A father can cling to his morals and die, or do everything it takes to survive!
"A dark journey through a very different world."
"Survival is never easy when family is involved!"
Armageddon began the day Red Dead entered the solar system. Fear leads to blame, blame leads to choosing sides - and both sides have bombs. Civil War in America turned into a worldwide conflict, leaving the planet in a new dark age.
Nothing has stirred about in the ravaged mountains for two years. Abraham's heart is broken save the fading hope of bringing his lost children home. He sets out without a destination searching for signs of life - what he finds is something infected.
Living husks riddled in fungus and straight out of a nightmare threaten the region. No one knows if the parasitic fungal outbreak is some sort of zombie created in a lab or something alien, related to the approaching red planet.
Where do you go when everything in the world is destroyed?
Who do you trust when each survivor is a wolf in sheepskin?
And how do you stop something you know so little about?
The alien fungus appeared right after the cryptic planet Red Dead stained the sky much like a distant moon. The cordyceps fungi has transformed much of humanity into mindless puppets - something straight out of a nightmare. Is the infection alien or something created in a lab? One thing is certain - the closer Red Dead draws to Earth - the more powerful the infected freaks grow. As the emotion thriller builds, Abraham is transformed into someone he tried to forget. He wages war on anything living and dead if it means protecting his family. He will stop at nothing to keep his loved ones safe.
For Abraham Heinz, understanding that help isn't on the way is the first step in the long journey to finding peace in a world so cold.
I'm really enjoying this series. I listen to a ton of books and find a lot of authors in varying parts of their career and I have to say this series should be a best seller in place of half the horible books on those lists. This story has all the elements of greatness.
The author is talented. The story is captivating, full of action, suspenseful -- as full bodied as freshly brewed quality coffee. I'm attached to the characters and cringe most of the way through the book as they manage through obstacles that threaten their lives. I also am really into how the story is based loosely on an actual fungal disease that affects bugs.
Onto book 4!
