All in all, a short novel that will appeal though its resemblance to pulp fiction may put off a few.
It badly requires an editor as there are many typos. There is no character development, no explanation of what causes the acid rain, a strangely added psychic ability, or two, to one character, and a total lack of planning and common sense that ANYONE else would have had - unless they have a really low IQ.
Along with these issues is the problem that one character is bitten but never develops an infection despite the lack of medical care. Later that same person is attacked by a pack of wolves and stops breathing? Okay, if they were literally torn apart and bled out - yes, that would happen, BUT the other character performs CPR on him and he miraculously lives. No mention of the severe wounds he would have suffered from a PACK OF WOLVES, other than bloody clothes *facepalm*.
I won't be reading the next "book".
Yet it is the virus that takes over the living to go inside the mind and change everything. How can you deal with yourself when you are no longer yourself? How can you deal with a new world that is overpowered by the ancient? Where does it end and a new beginning start to invade this hell? Is it too late?

I was pulled in by the main protagonists Brook and Cole and just want them to survive this! The action is good, as are the descriptions of the ‘acid rain,’ Ahh!
Sam is great at writing this genre, and I think she’d be great at writing any type of thriller too. I really recommend this book, and I can't wait for the next book in the series.
