Book Description


-- An SG Horror release
-- From Top Selling UK horror and suspense author, Iain Rob Wright
-- Suspense novel of 65,000 words


Jack Wardsley’s life ended the moment his partner died. Now, years later, he's not the man he used to be.

That's why he's on board a cruise liner - The Spirit of Kirkpatrick - to work out his issues and try to rediscover the man he once was. It isn't long, however, before Jack realizes that rest and relaxation is the last thing he’s going to get on board the cursed ship. A virus has found its way aboard and is making people sick.

Soon the whole ship will be overrun with blood and death.

And in the middle of the ocean, there is nowhere to escape.


"Cuddle up to this novel and it might rip your throat out. A fun, thrilling read!" David T. Wilbanks - Co-author of Dead Earth: The Vengeance Road

"One of the BEST horror books I have read in YEARS!" - Eric S. Brown, author of Last Stand in a Dead Land

"Wright has achieved a hell of a lot with this novel, pulling together an enjoyable and quite light-hearted apocalyptic romp" - DREADLOCKSMILE

"I found myself identifying with and rooting for some of the characters while being disgusted by others. I'd definitely look up Iain Rob Wright's other works"

"Iain Rob Wright brings true excitement to the horror genre, with wholly original stories and characters to route for." - Ryan C Thomas, author of Hissers, Rating's Game, and Origin of Pain

2.0 out of 5 stars Good read for the first half, downfall at the end October 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book, really I did, but sadly for the first portion. The buildup was great, suspense and action--wow! The author's introduction to the main character was well done, and I felt he was a 3-dimensional as he could be through a book. The horror was truly there--and boy, was the concept gruesome.

Then there was the downfall. I think the author was caught up with the whole story, that the rationale for all of it was lost in translation. Okaaaay... It became paranormal on us. One of those: "You are the Chosen One.. Only you can save the world... I know how you can do it but I can't tell you... I am hurting you right now, but this is for your own good.." and so on an so forth. A Filipino? Seriously? And I say this because of my Filipino roots. More research will take you a long way. Adding a little truth to fiction makes the story so much better.

I wish I can delve further, but I am a firm believer in no spoilers.

I do not regret purchasing this book, nor the time spent reading it. Will I read it again? No. WIll I recommend it to someone else? No. Will I possibly purchase another book written by this author? A definite maybe. It could have been a lot better if the ending (and the means to the end) was a bit more realistic. There are a multitude of books within the same genre out there, and the most horrific are the ones that make you feel it can truly happen.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kind of a Mess February 22, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was plagued with grammatical errors and for some reason I could even see where edits had been made. (The text was red with strike-throughs and the correction was in black next to it.) But it wasn't just this that added to the rushed feel of the book. The story itself was all over the place; like a hot mess. The book starts off well but then becomes almost monotonous with its Groundhog Day-esque storyline. It trys to combine zombies, witchcraft and gypsy folklore but none of it seems to mesh very well. And the two short stories at the end of the book (Bad Delivery & Cabin Mates) really should have been incorporated into the main story (Sea Sick) somehow. Delivering them as separate stories after the fact only makes the stories feel... pointless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not the Love Boat! July 16, 2013
By Krimini
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As many others have stated it is almost impossible to read this book without being reminded of the movie Groundhog Day as the main character, Jack, relives the same day over and over, but let me assure you, that is where all similarity between the two ends. In this book as Jack is forced to relive the horror over and over every day of the entire ship turning into blood thirsty cannibalistic creatures from hell that kill anyone and everyone in their wake he realizes very quickly that this trip will be anything but relaxing! Over time he begins to realize that for some reason he may be the only one who actually knows they are re-living the same day repeatedly, or if anyone else does know it, could it be because they know something he might be able to use to change the horrific outcome that repeats itself every day? Jack soon reverts to his role as a police officer in hopes of solving this mystery, saving everyone on board and finally waking to a new day...
This book will grab you from the moment you pick it up as the pace of things is quite quick right from the beginning. Add to that the combination of zombies, time loops, a few other mysteries that require solving and potentially even a possible need to save much more than just the cruise ship he is on, and this book has everything a person could want from a well thought out novel with a definitely unique twist on the zombie genre! I would say to anyone considering reading this book to not pick it up until they know they have at least a few hours to spare because I doubt they will want to put it down again anytime soon! As for me, I am off to begin reading Iain Rob Wright's next book "Ravage" because I am so not ready to have this adventure end!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun, bloody romp on the sea November 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was my first book by Mr Wright and I found it to be a fun little read. I won't go into the story synopsis; enough reviewers have done that. As an avid horror fan I'll just give my unbiased, basic opinion. The characters were easy to sympathize with, the story was an original little idea, and there was a liberal amount of gore. It was a page-turner and I managed to finish it in under twelve hours. It's inexpensive and quick, why not give it a shot?

1.0 out of 5 stars Now I'm sick March 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Sounded interesting--but it's not. The explanation for the virus and the "resetting" day are really and unexpectedly silly and disappointing. Gypsys! Apparently cops in the UK just murder criminals and suspects as they wish, also. And everyone from the US says "pardner." words are missing letters, the wrong words are used-especially in the follow up chapters. Imagine a sentence where someone needed to clean the room they just got from a knife. Oh you mean WOUND. This book isn't bad in a good way.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm starting to love this author February 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I started this autho I first read animal kindom and I fell in love with his stories. The I read ravage and loved that one. But I should of read this one first. If you like zombies and ground hog day (the film) then this book for you. Buti won't give details about it and let u judge this book for yourselves. But if ur not a zombie fan then pass it. The author writes better then I have seen.
