The United States is lost and walls are overrun; defense shifts North into Canada. The pandemic and thousands upon thousands of zombies are following the food. There are pockets of survivors and this tale is mostly about Jon, a former, embedded reporter. Toss in a hot, female Marine - and you've got part of the story.
The rest centers around rag-tag survivors and scientists from the CDC running a theory for a cure. Parts of the book are slow, but the back half picks up steam. There is some character development in this first book of unknown numbers, but the action takes center stage.
Although the book ends with the full story untold, it does have an ending. I'm sure Book Two picks up straight away for the finale.
Zombies, violence, sex, death, dystopian, plague, cure. Sounds interesting? Check it out.
Using the theory that evolutionary mutations can occur spontaneously, not just over eons as Darwin postulated, OF SUDDEN ORIGIN is a four-part series covering the outbreak and consequences of a catastrophic event, akin to a plague. A sudden fever results in near-coma, then destruction of the frontal lobes of the brain. The result is a ravenous killing machine, determined to consume all "Fresh Meat" (living humans and animals). Those bitten but not consumed turn also. Named "Fiends" for the disease acronym, these former humans are almost unstoppable. From Florida, encroaching North, they travel in search of food. The remaining U.S. population has mostly evacuated for Eastern Canada, but the bizarre nature of the pathogen means no one on the continent is safe.
OF SUDDEN ORIGIN is a captivating narrative, with a wide cast of well-tuned characters and non-stop action. I won't give away any secrets, but the nature of the second generation Fiends, and the true source of this pathogen, are especially intriguing, weaving in science and "future science."
I reviewed a digital version generously provided for review purpose by the author, with no remuneration.
I don't want to give away the details of the story (some of the other reviews here do that) because it is well worth your time to read it yourself.
I also read "Ouroboros" by Mr. Harwood, which is another really cool idea, and a fun, quick read. I can't wait to read more from this guy! I just got the other omnibus, and can't wait to read more from this guy!
