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!

Sad

This is a prequel book for a dystopian novel. With that being said this one is full of sadness .... I have started with the prequel so I am not sure if it’s bonus but it does give a grim look into the world that is being built. Now to listen to compound 26 and see how this story plays out....

easy good read

I received this book for free for a honest review. This story was well written and held together. The author portrayed the government how I would imagine them in a time of uncertainty. I loved how the older brother tried to keep the family together. cliff hanger. reccomend

A prequel that could be read as a stand-alone.

I really liked that with this book you didn't have to read the series to know what was going on. At the same time it's a great addition to the makanza series. It follows the hero from the rest of the books Davian and his experience with the outbreak. The story is a little heartbreaking because( if you read the previous series and this isn't a spoiler since you'll find out soon enough) the virus kills 99.9% of the people that it infects. Davin's stuck at home with his family in the middle of an outbreak. The narration was fabulous and over all this story really put you in a good place to start the series or gives you better insight into what really was happening during the outbreak and the fear that many people had.

The Second Wave

This is a heartbreaking tale about a family torn apart for a virus ravishing the country. Davin, 18, and his 4 younger siblings were visiting their dad when it happened. Follow along Davin’s story as he has to take make difficult decisions to maintain and care for his family to try and survive. The narrator did a good job also.

So very good, great read, great series

The Second Wave: The Makanza Series Book 0, my second WOW read/listen from author Krista Street. Well-written & enjoyable & so good Zachary Johnson’s excellent narration made the 2-hour 37-minute read pass quickly and became the voice of Davin in this first person tale told from his point of view. I purchased this back in August after I’d been given an Audible copy of Compound 26 & am voluntarily reviewing it. I need to get Reservation 1 (The Mankaza #2) by this author. (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Loved it! Am so obsessed I’ve been hitting “replay”! Short and sweet but definitely worth it.
