Book Description


This is not for the squeamish or for those who may have weak stomachs. If you're offended by vulgar and crude language or if the thought of a desperate ragtag group of cataclysmic survivors doing what's necessary to stay alive in an apocalyptic world brings any semblance of bile to the back of your throat.

Run like hell...

After the release of "Annihilation", a synthetic designer drug that was marketed as a perfectly legal high, turned its unsuspecting users into "feeders." ( It causes imminent death and then re-animation into a zombie like state.)

This is the first in a series of episodes that follows the adventures of Mason Briggs, and a group of survivors that he meets and loses along the way. If you like action packed and gory - You'll be in for a wild ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gruesome, Scary and Good December 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
If you're a fan of 'The Walking Dead' or a zombie fan like I am, you will enjoy read this book.This Zombie story is action oriented, fast paced, and the dialogue is hilarious.
This is a good read if you like short novella type stories and can't get enough of zombies getting their heads bashed in.

4.0 out of 5 stars This book should have its own soundtrack! December 17, 2012
By Talo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have somewhat followed this quiet `bath salt ` drug epidemic that has been infiltrating the U.S for the last two years. So when I started to read "Rise of Chaos: Annihilation" by Griffin Smith it was truly frightening. Smith pulls his story right from our own headlines which is scary enough, but what is even more frightening, is that Smiths story may prove to read as a non fiction guide in the near future. .. Follow Mason, Brody, Barry, Pulani, Cujo, Captain Tony and Kalen on a survivalist journey of horror(Spoiler, not everyone makes it but I won't say who gets it) Not for the weak of constitution, Griffin once again delivers some stomach churning, profanity laced, violent ,zombie action.If you enjoy Capcom's Resident Evil Series game or fiction , give "Rise of Chaos: Annihilation" a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sex, Zombies and Drugs, what more could you want! December 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fast paced short novel, probably has more appeal for Zombie lovers. The premise of a recreational drug turning people into zombies is topical, and the book is raw in all aspects. It doesn't really offer anything new, but it is very fun, and better written than most of gets thrown up on Kindle for a buck. This one is worth it a lot more than others.

Read the description of this book before buying it. If the description intrigues you like it did me, you should definitely buy this book. This is the first book in the series and you're definitely in for a wild ride with this book but it's a great read!

5.0 out of 5 stars RJarvis November 19, 2012
By Rickbob
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For Zombie Lovers. The first thing I have have to say is that the books jumps right into it. Your attention is grabbed off the start as you picture yourself with the main character "Mason" trying to get some sleep and it isn't going to happen. Lots of course language which in my opinion makes it seem more realistic but not recommended to those who might be offended. There is certainly an element of comedy to the gory descriptions almost as if you could really see this stuff happening...if nothing else certainly entertaining.

The nonstop struggle reminds me of the TV series "The Walking Dead" as the author describes events through out the book. If your a zombie lover this book is for you. I found it to be very intriguing as Mason starts out on his own and then builds up a team as they work their way through Chaos!

4.0 out of 5 stars Zombies! November 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
how come hearing about zombies, ninjas and kittens NEVER gets old?

At any rate, Griffin does an Awesome job of hooking me on his story - with the finale the way it is... well now I HAVE to read part two.

I docked a point due to little "explanations" that I think may take away from writer's brazen and unique way of writing. Definitely could be a little more wordy, but all in all awesome short read.

This is definitely not a "fine literary piece", however - it's an action packed thriller.
It has zombies and an understandable amount of gore and cussing (I'm not entirely sure I would be saying please and thank you to the zombies myself if I had to smash some).

Kudos to the writer for making an interesting background and story to the story as well (crazies' origins) and keeping it interesting with a possibility of romance. :)
