To freeze the wealthy who are sick or dying until a cure for their disease or death itself can be found.
Enter Pam. She’s the main character and is an intern at Future Faith. While working here will look amazing on her resume she hates everything about her job. Dr. Ada Klein is demanding and disrespectful and on top of that she got into medicine to help the living, not babysit the dead. For all intents and purposes that is exactly what she’s doing as she monitors cryogenics capsules.
Boring? Not so much when the night she plans on quitting her boss storms in and tells her to help monitor a patient. A patient? That’s right. Ada believes she has discovered the cure for death and is ready to find out.
I’m sure you can see where this is going but if not I’ll spell it out to you. Things go wrong. Horribly horribly wrong. Her cure for death is in all actuality the birth of the zombie virus. Pam, Ada, and another are all able to escape the hordes of undead and barely make it to a safe room. From there Ada calls her contacts at the military who come to clean up her mess.
They don’t do the best of jobs.
While most of the zombies are taken care of Ada and a few infected are brought back to the military base. A quarantine is attempted but fails as no one believes the extent of what is happening.
This novella gets my one complaint I always have for well written novellas. It’s too short. I’d love to know more of what happens in the world and find out of they are able to contain the spread of the infection or if the world as we know it is at an end. There is some solid character development, plot, and pacing in this one.
A quick read but a good one and I highly support picking this one up!
Along the way you meet some interesting characters, like the devious and manipulative engineer Enrico and the well-meaning but naïve Captain Crawford. The story moves quickly and has some really great zombie bite moments without being overly gory. Even if you've never read a zombie book before, you'll quickly get wrapped up in this story. I'm about to move on to book two. Highly recommend for anyone that loves a zombie thrill.
Except for the gore, it's also pretty family friendly, so it could be enjoyed by mature teenagers, young adults, and adults.
