Publisher's Summary

He thought the danger was past, but it was only the beginning....

Two years ago, the Makanza virus was eradicated from the public. Now, everyone thinks they’re safe - including Davin. As the oldest among his siblings, Davin plans to leave for college after a short visit with his divorced father on the Cheyenne River Reservation.

But then the Makanza sirens go off, and everything changes.

The warning alarm splits the soft April skies over the vast South Dakota prairie. Against all odds, the virus has returned, and the outbreak is only a few miles from his father’s ramshackle home.

Davin can only watch, helpless, as his family succumbs to the virus, and when coughs rattle his chest, he fears death is inevitable.

But a different fate awaits Davin. As his body fights the virus, it isn’t dying. It’s becoming something different. Something that will leave him with strange new powers...and make him a hunted man.

The Second Wave is the first installment in a complete series where fantastical powers collide with modern science. Dive into this imaginative and romantic series today!

Heartbreaking!!

This story shattered my heart for Davin and his family. The telling of how he and his family came to contract the virus is heartbreaking. The things he went through as an 18 year old were horrendous. The author's writing brings the story to life and places you right in the middle of the world she's created. The narrator does an amazing job of bringing Davin to life.

See How It All Started

Be prepared to shed a few tears and have your heart torn out when listening to this prequel to the Makanza series. Told from Davin's POV, it's his origin story of how he became one of the Kazzies. Visiting his father on the reservation with his 4 siblings when a second wave of the deadly Makanza virus sweeps the nation, it tells of the families struggle to stay together and survive despite all the odds. But it's not a happy ending for this family, as the virus doesn't discriminate. The majority of those exposed die a grisly, slow death. And the lucky, or unlucky survivors don't make it out unscathed undergoing changes on a DNA level leaving them with powers. The narration of this story is stunning, capturing all the emotional anguish of Davin in this trying time.

Great!

I loved this short intro book into the series. It was really nice to get Davin’s perspective on what happened. The story line was great and very believable. The narrator did a great job with Davin.

What an emotional story!

I have already read this book and I was offered a free code by the author for an honest review. These opinions are my own.
I wasn't sure about Zachary's voice to begin with as he sounded older than I imagined Davin to sound.. However the emotion he put in his narration was brilliant and I actually cried at several times throughout the book,
Makanza has already plagued the earth once. Davin and his brothers Lars and Elliott and his sisters Aurora and Mina are at at the reservation visiting their dad when the second outbreak begins.
This book is a prequel to Compound 26 and it gives you an insight to what Davin goes through with his family. A heartbreaking story by brilliant.

Magnificent!

A fantastic start to a new series. This story is extremely well written and detailed. This book is a prequel to the series. At the beginning of the book I was definitely suck into the book and by the end my heart ached for what this family had to go through. The story had me sobbing for the son and his mother. I can't wait for the next book in the series.
The narrator does a fabulous job with the voices of the characters throughout the story. The narrator make you feel all of the emotions of the characters.
