Mad World: Epidemic review
The Black Plague is ancient history. It killed 100 million people nearly seven centuries ago, halfway around the world from the technologically advanced research center at Stanford University. Scientists there have recently begun examining samples of bone marrow from plague-infected corpses unearthed in Europe. All the necessary safeguards are in place. What could go wrong? Alyssa and Jake are away with their class on a highly anticipated year-end trip to Broadway with their senior acting class when all hell breaks loose at home. Traveling back, and trying to find their families, they encounter deadly results. Riots are breaking out. People are being evacuated. And they have no idea what's happening to their families. Horrific ordeals, heart-pounding tragedy, and chance encounters harden them for what lies ahead. Faced with tormenting decisions, they're forced to follow their instinct for survival at any cost - even when the cost is a heart-wrenching decision of life or death. A harrowing adventure of frightening discoveries, horrifying confrontations and narrow escapes in Epidemic, the first installment of the Mad World series. Find out what's got everyone so terrified.
I wasn’t ready for this book to end. What would you do if you were faced with a highly infectious disease epidemic? For Alyssa, Jacob and their small group of friends that is exactly the reality they are faced with. After a school trip to New York gets cut short due to unforeseen events in their home state of California and unable to contact anyone from back home, they find themselves driving across the country for answers. The streets are deserted, their families, everyone, gone. Bits and piece of news and information they manage to pick up from social networking sites are the only resources they have on where the evacuee have been taken. Just when they think they are in the final stretch of this journey, they learn the truth behind the Epidemic and come face to face with zombies at every turn. A fast paced zombie thriller. Author Samaire Provost snags your attention from the beginning and leaves you thirsting for more. 5 stars!!!
