Summary

This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang but a scream.

In the remote mountains of Northern Alaska, Dr. Riley Middleton and her team of archeologists discover a burial site containing mummified remains dating to the last ice age. None of them notice the warning carved into the entrance or realize that the tomb had been deliberately sealed from the outside until they’ve already released a virus that turns ordinary people into murderous monsters. But there’s something even more terrifying inside...something ancient...something unspeakably evil.

Meanwhile, strange events are happening all across the country. A young girl in Washington begins drawing pictures of crime scenes, including details she can’t possibly know. In Maryland, a researcher finds the physiological cause of psychopathy in the brain of a mass murderer. A college student in New York develops precognitive abilities. In Michigan, a federal agent collars a serial killer whose murders continue unabated. And an anthropology professor in Massachusetts notices graffiti featuring the same cryptic designs that the Anasazi left on the walls of their abandoned cliff dwellings.

Once the deadly contagion reaches the contiguous United States, it spreads like wildfire through the population centers. With the infected running rampant through the streets, killing everyone in their way, a Hopi elder sets out from the Arizona desert to gather the survivors for a final battle that will determine the fate of humanity.

This book was brilliant

I loved this book , the story is so brilliant. It has elements of everything in it .
You have to pay attention, I had to rewind a lot . The story is very detailed and it has a lot of characters in it . Everyone of them play an important part and you really want more from each.
I couldn’t always listen to it on sleep timer before bed , it is very intense and has a supernatural element that made me a bit scared !
The zombies are believable and the descriptions of events make you feel like you are there .
The narrator is great too .
I hope book two is out because , honestly I don’t know how I’m going to plug back into normal life ! I have lived this book every minute I’ve been able to .

Gripping!

A gripping, compelling read that had me absorbed from the start, unable to put it down for long, The plot had plenty of twists and turns, I can't wait for the next one.
