Summary

Summary

In the tradition of Rick Yancey's The 5th Wave, the first YA novel from New York Times bestselling author Gregg Hurwitz. In one terrifying night, the peaceful community of Creek's Cause turns into a war zone. No one under the age of eighteen is safe. Chance Rain and his older brother, Patrick, have already fended off multiple attacks from infected adults by the time they arrive at the school where other young survivors are hiding.

Most of the kids they know have been dragged away by once-trusted adults who are now ferocious, inhuman beings. The parasite that transformed them takes hold after people turn eighteen—and Patrick's birthday is only a few days away.

Determined to save Patrick's life and the lives of the remaining kids, the brothers embark on a mission to uncover the truth about the parasites—and what they find is horrifying. Battling an enemy not of this earth, Chance and Patrick become humanity's only hope for salvation.

Editorial Reviews

“A brilliant, terrifying, rule-breaking reimagining of the zombie novel.” Jonathan Maybery, New York Times bestselling author
“One of those all-too-creepy-and-believable stories…Chilling!” Ridley Pearson, New York Times bestselling author
“This title is one of the better YA zombie-esque novels that has been written in the last few years…Recommended for all YA collections.” School Library Journal
“The alien-zombie mashup that science-fiction fans won’t want to miss…This zombie-esque sci-fi novel will feed the needs of readers looking for a fast-paced, adrenaline-pumping story with elements of horror.” Kirkus Reviews
“Todd Haberkorn portrays young Chance Rain…Haberkorn’s pacing is admirable—he keeps a fast-moving story on track without rushing the narrative and treats the serious moments with appropriate gravity. His warm, wry delivery reflects Chance’s thoughts as he tries to save the world, and his impressive range captures Chance’s friends and enemies. An ideal listen for fans of horror, dystopian novels, or sci-fi.” AudioFile
