A MYSTERIOUS CONTAGION. MASS HYSTERIA. SUDDEN DEATH.

And a warning that would come all too late . . .

Forest Peak, California. Fourth of July. Sheriff Danielle Adelman, a troubled war veteran, thinks she has all the problems she can handle in this all-American town after her kid sister runs away from home. But when a disease-stricken horde of panicked refugees fleeing the fall of Los Angeles swarms her small mountain community, Danny realizes her problems have only just begun—starting with what might very well be the end of the world. Danny thought she had seen humanity at its worst in war-torn Iraq, but nothing could prepare her for the remorseless struggle to survive in a dying world being overrun by the reanimated dead and men turned monster. Obsessed with finding her missing sister against all odds, Danny’s epic and dangerous journey across the California desert will challenge her spirit . . . and bring her to the precipice of sanity itself. . . .

Filled with adventurous human drama—and shocking inhuman horror—Rise Again marks a vivid and powerful fiction debut.

Exciting from the beginning until the end.
Fast paced adventure, tough heroine, surprising ending set up for sequel. Looking forward to the next book.

My boyfriend hated this book because the bedroom lights would be on until 3am every night! I could not put this book down, and even when it was time to sleep, the lights would still stay on. Very scary, with an amazing strong female character.

agree definately has a script writers feel to book but it has a decent narrative and is not a dumb read, perfect holiday page turner that wont tax the grey cells

I feel bad when the spelling errors make me put down a book (I mean I read Twilight to prove-a-point, even though I was raging to pull my hair out after after "written" word.) Also I'm averse to novels that read like scripts.
