The Orphans Publisher's Summary

When one man pushes science past it's breaking point, an unimaginable hell is unleashed on society. This apocalyptic book is brutal and beautifully described. The Orphans: Origins, Volume 1 is a zombie tale like no other before it.

Frank Fox lost his wife to cancer eight years ago. He'd been recruited to work on a classified mission for a cure, which could have saved tens of thousands. On the verge of success, his wife unexpectedly lost her battle. He was sent home to care for his young son, Shaun, who still holds resentment today.

Now, when a second chance at love holds promise, she tells him that she too is dying of cancer. Frank vows to cure her, not knowing of the deadly results and government cover-up that took place almost a decade earlier.

When Frank thinks he has the cure, a new breed of zombies, the likes of which you've never heard about before, is unleashed. They each have the strength of 10 men and speed that can't be matched. Their hunger can never satisfied. When the outbreak happens, Frank wants but one thing: to get his only son, Shaun, and his friends free from town, and he fights a battle against zombies to do so.

Listen to The Orphans to hear who makes it past day one! This story will leave your heart pounding, as this amazingly intense series is only beginning! Look for Surviving the Turned, Volume 2, coming soon.
