Book Description

A deadly influenza virus rages out of control. There is no easy-fix vaccine. No eleventh-hour containment. Only death.
With no workforce, power plants are unmanned so there’s no means of communication; police and fire departments have collapsed so no one is safe; looters are scavenging everything from big-screen TVs to canned peas.
When Dr. Taeya Sanchez finds herself unceremoniously dismissed from an emergency medical facility in New York, she decides to steal the hospital’s armored van for a midnight escape.
Unfortunately, Rick DeAngelo, a driver for the hospital, has already stocked the van for his own getaway.
Thrown into an unfriendly alliance, these two must pick their way across the dangerous wasteland of America in search of a safe haven. And as the miles roll by, they discover that the living should be feared much more than the festering corpses out there.

Editorial Reviews

1.0 out of 5 stars A Bad Day For A Pandemic Novel July 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There is just no way to say how disappointing this book was. While the beginning showed promise and the idea of what would happen in the wake of a global pandemic had the makings of a good plot, this story line started getting less and less interesting about a third of a way through the book when it became clear that the pandemic was no longer the focus of the story.

I kept thinking that at some point the characters would be led back to the original storyline but instead the writer threw everything and the kitchen sink into the plot. Maybe the idea was to confuse things but over the next few chapters we were introduced to: bikers itching for a fight, rocket launchers, a house collapse, stolen motor home, Really nasty moonshine made from sweet potatoes, a forest fire, septic tank clean-out truck adapted to carry fuel, biosphere, rice paddie, and on and on. None of them helped the story hang together, that is for sure!

Even at that point I tried to give the book a fair shot; and then the sexist language, four letter words and lecherous behavior started. Give me a break.

What a total waste of time. I stopped reading when a character hires leather clad cowboys to get his revenge on some of the virus survivors. That was the last straw for me; mark this one a disappointing waste. I have no idea how it has almost 4 stars from any reader. And it really had next to nothing to do with a pandemic. Bad; very bad; and it makes it into my "Groaningly Bad" category.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's the end of the world as we know it October 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
By Marsha Cornelius

The world is hit by a killer virus H10-N1, (AGAIN) the main characters are this CDC (centre for disease control) Doctor Sanchez and this driver Rick DeAngelo. Rick the driver at this emergency medical centre in New York turns out to be this highly resourceful chap, the kind of guy to have around at the end of the world kind.

Rick teams up with doctor Sanchez, and they set out on this quest of adventure and survival in a stolen van, (yes the doctor steals a van).

They encounter along the way zombie like walking dead, (victims of the virus) dogs, snipers and pregnant hillbillies some attack their van others ask for help.

This new reality comes across as you read the book, you can't help thinking this may be more fact than fiction, this may actually be the "new reality" that we find ourselves in after a major incident involving NBC weapons.

The pair become an unlikely kind of Bonnie and Clyde of the Medical world on the run from the Government.

The story builds as they weave in and out of the dead body strewn streets. I found the tension between the breast loving Rick and the sexy doctor Sanchez interesting because they have to work as team if they want to survive. When the mutual contempt and rivalry peak they both find that they are both in danger, so they must cooperate.

The intellectual point at the core of the book is ever present mob mentality. looters first steal the TV OK motive theft, but the big question is why do they have to burn down the store? Why go mad raping and killing and acting like animals?

The riots in the UK came only weeks before I read the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Took a bit to get into it but worth it. January 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After a pandemic annihilates most of the population, this story follows a few survivors. The author does a good job of predicting what life might be like after something like a pandemic. The beginning of the book was a little difficult for me to get into but about the time I was ready to give up, the story grabbed my attention. The lead characters Teaya and Rick are intriguing to follow in the story as they struggle with what has happened and their own pasts.

This is also recommendable because it uses little foul language and doesn't have graphic sexual detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is The One That Stuck October 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had about a half dozen novels lurking in my Kindle, waiting for me to read. I opened them all and read the first few pages to get a sense of which would be a great read. When I got to H10N1 I found myself a dozen pages in before I even knew it. Done deal. This was the one.

There are quite a few post-apocalyptic novels out there, to be sure. Any number of these should be able to hold the interest of anyone into the genre. This book does a whole lot more than hold your interest. It grabs you by the undershorts, picks you up and says, "C'mon, Bubba. We're going for a ride."

I loved it.

The action was non-stop. Any breaks were well thought out breathers that built different but necessary story lines. I found myself cheering for Rick and Sanchez from the start. Their rocky and passionate relationship is an underlying current that only adds to the tension of the novel.

At first I wasn't sure about the Biosphere component but the author quickly proves its value and it was one of the most enjoyable sections of the book.

Grit, laced with humor and believable characters round out the completeness of this book. Highly readable and completely worth the download.

2.0 out of 5 stars The First 25% of The Book Is Blah To Me August 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recently read a similar length book in a 26 hour period. I've been trudging through this book for the last week and it finally hit me last night that I'm wasting my time. I'm not enjoying it. So far (this is in the book description so I don't think it's giving away any of the secrets of the plot) it's a PA (post apocalypse) story with two characters that don't get along. It would be like sitting in the back seat of someones car while they argue. Uggg. There's nothing exciting, scary, dramatic, or quite frankly interesting so far.

This one's not for me. I really wanted to like it, but couldn't.

More About the Author

After working for fifteen years as a cafeteria manager in an elementary school, I turned in my non-skid shoes for a bathrobe and slippers. Now I work at home, writing novels, ranting on Facebook and Twitter, and occasionally whisking a Swiffer across dusty surfaces.
Like thousands of others, I thought I could write romance, but soon discovered I was a dismal failure. I did increase my repertoire of adjectives such as throbbing, pulsing, thrumming, vibrating, hammering, pumping . . .
I live in the country north of Atlanta with my husband, and two molly-coddled cats. My two grown sons occasionally visit for clean laundry and a hot cooked meal.
