Publisher's summary

Dr. Everett Berning achieved his life's work by discovering a cure for drug addiction. Unfortunately, the formula was stolen and fell into the hands of the enemy.

Drug lords from around the world unknowingly released the altered, deadly formula into their supply, affecting millions across the globe.

Within 48 hours the entire planet was thrown into chaos as the disease spread.

Regina Parker, chief of police of the tiny town of Rockport, Arkansas, isn't willing to let the military kill thousands of innocent people in a rush to contain the outbreak. She leads a small contingent of survivors on a dangerous quest to keep her town safe from the soldiers and the dead.

Will Dr. Berning be able to isolate the contagion and find a way to reverse it, or is it too late to save humanity from the tainted cure? How far will Chief Parker go to save the lives of others as the world collapses around them?

is mainly an exciting dystopian thriller + zombies

The Rememdium series started off with Tainted Cure, which should be read prior to Tainted Reality, as this continues where the first book ended.

Following the outbreak and the collapse of civilization, one group of survivors is heading for the local Walmart thinking this may be a safe place to hide out. Part of the military is trying to continue their rather unconventional way of erasing the entire problem. Meanwhile, Dr. Everett and his group are back in the lab trying to figure out what happened with the cure and what to do next. New characters are introduced and storylines are starting to merge. It’s very difficult to say much more without spoiling the story.

However, this was one gripping, suspenseful tale that had me smiling one minute and tearing up the next. The fate of one character, in particular, had me totally gobsmacked. Not in a million years had I expected that Ashley Fontainne was going to go there. I’m actually amazed by how invested I am in these characters already. Once I got halfway over that heartbreaking shock, I found myself shouting at another character “No, don’t do it!” a little later. Seriously, I don’t usually get carried away, but there is something in the way the author creates these people that you feel deeply connected to them.

There is obviously a good bit of zombie action with blood and gore, but while Tainted Reality is mainly an exciting dystopian thriller, Ashley Fontainne also quite cleverly inserts a few philosophical aspects, which make you ponder life and beyond. Simply brilliant.

Don’t miss out on this series just because it may not be your usual genre, it certainly isn’t mine, but the plot and the characters have so much depth, you can’t help but get hooked on it. Tainted Future, part 3 of the series, is due out in June and already on my wish list. Can’t wait! Great writing!

Rebecca Roberts’s narration is simply outstanding. I’m in awe by the range of voices she comes up with and manages to stick with throughout. These characters really come to life and you can visualize the story as if you were watching a movie. For a female narrator to make the tough guys sound so male and believable is just incredible. There were no issues with the production.
