Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This Plague of Days is a labor of...well...mostly love. Spite. It was also good for spite.
As an underemployed freelancer, I hung out at a coffee shop and wrote the first draft over 10 months. It was based on my home city then, not Kansas City, Missouri. It also didn't have enough action to balance out the contemplative elements I liked. Seeing the end of the world through the eyes of an autistic boy obsessed with Latin proverbs is fascinating, but it was too different from what most readers expect. So...

I destroyed Europe. I confess.
And sorry about that. Also, in Season 3, I wasn't nice to Wilmington, Vermont. Less sorry.

The rewrite took many more months and the project has really evolved as Jaimie's character has grown. My aim was always, is always, to write something entertaining but different. There's a bit of gore, a bit of the supernatural and some speculation about the meaning of our world now that it's on the way out. When you get to the end, you'll be surprised to find the answers aren't in gunfire. I hope you'll enjoy This Plague of Days, either way.

From the Back Cover

"Unique, smart, thought-provoking, multi-layered and intensely terrifying." ~ Alex Kimmell, author of The Key to Everything

I can't tell you how many novels of the zombie genre I've read...I'm a great fan, but with reading so much, so many of the books blend into one another. This book stands out from the pack. Not only is it well written (including grammar and spelling), but the characters are unique. Jaime, a borderline autistic boy is a beautifully realized character. I read all of Season 1 in one day - couldn't put it down. I am anxiously waiting for Season 2. Bravo - excellent job.

I can't believe I only paid $.99 for this book. This is a well written, well thought out, deeply layered and suspenseful book and I'd have paid more now that I've read it. Sometimes life gives you difficulties such as an Autistic son, heart break, lies, being taken advantage, sickness, and if you're born into misfortune, it gives you hunger and lack of reliable shelter. This story gives it all, and then slowly and methodically describes how life could get worse. Much worse, actually. The funny thing about this book is that it actually helps you find a way to see the good in these difficulties as it shows normal folks surviving and battling through them as humans do; not with forgettable and unbelievable heroics but with a trudging and trial-by-error mortal sensibilities. It's like they embrace their hardships and power on.

A part that stuck with me is the group's scavenging adventure at the mall where they meet... get this... real people making the best choices they can possibly make. I applauded that part of the story not because it's so rare to see in ZA fiction but because the dialogue and the descriptions were perfect.

Do it. It's a steal and you probably spend more money for cheaper thrills than this very precious time-worthy book.

I think this storyline is brilliant. It's not your cliched, run-of-the-mill zombie apocalypse story. It's character driven. It's cerebral. It's awesome. The first episode of This Plague of Days is the perfect balance of back story, anecdotes, and the events of the present crisis. Jaime, the main character, is fantastically written and surprisingly well thought out. His diagnosis on the Autism Spectrum (formerly known as Aspergers), combined with his synthesesia (seeing emotions as color-auras) is a fresh aspect to an otherwise well-known genre. Reading on, I admit I was nervous that the remaining episodes wouldn't pack the same punch. I was wrong, they did.

Jaime is an infuriating character to withstand during such a terrifying predicament-which is why he's awesome. You find yourself screaming at the page for him to speak up, to warn others to what he sees. And that's when you realize just how invested in the characters you are. And his isn't the only well-developed character. Chute often provides glimpses into the pasts of some of the others and it's so well-written, you forget for a moment that the world is in turmoil...but just for a moment before you're clobbered over the head again with suspense, tension, and terror.

In the end, all the immediate conflicts were resolved in a satisfying way, not rushed, not unrealistic. There's plenty of ground to cover next season, and the last few lines will leave you guessing and impatiently waiting for Season Two of This Plague of Days.

Not your run-of-the-mill zombie story but a well thought out flu virus hits the world an d two well developed story lines, one in America and one in Europe, keep you wanting more. I was disappointed when it ended and immediately will be looking for the next season. Chute needs to keep writing.

Very good book. But you need to understand that it is NOT a standalone novel. This first novel only tells a third of the story and while it ends at a fairly reasonable stopping place, there is no real conclusion. I generally hate books that leave, well, pretty much everything unfinished. But the author has a definite talent with words and ideas. If you are looking for a book that immediately tells you everything, this isn't it. It's a journey, one I am thoroughly enjoying. But it's better to spring for the entire three-book series if you are into zombie and last days type of books. I am halfway through the second book and still enjoying it immensely. Just realize that when you buy this, it's only part of the story. Even so, it's well worth it. Especially because you don't have the errors or plot holes that you get in a lot of the less expensive books these days. If I bought the rest of the books, you know it's worth it. Oh, and I need to add that this book is very, very violent at times. There are few details spared. So if you can't stomach violence, find something else.

Apocalyptic tales aren't my typical read, but I was definitely hooked on this one! This is one of those stories that I kept thinking about when I was away from it. The story follows the family of a boy with autism as a virus wipes out much of the population.

I quickly grew to love the characters and wanted to know what was going to happen to each of them. Even the kooky old neighbor who was looking more suspicious and ominous with each new page. I don't want to give too much away, but this story has some great twists and turns and I'm excited about the upcoming second season.
