Adventure / Action

Blurb

There were two things that brought the world to its knees. First the colours. Then the insanity.

Prologue

The colour was the beginning of everything.

When it had started there had been whispers among people about the colour, about what it did to those who got infected. In hushed tones and trembling voices, the fear set in, and within a matter of weeks the disease became an epidemic.

People had run, desperation and terror fuelling their actions. They foolishly thought they could outrun the disease like terrified mice. But it wasn’t enough. Most had cornered themselves, weeded themselves out. They had fought the unknown, resisted for as long as they could; but as always, they were never strong enough.

They acted as though the infection was like a spoiled cat that did not catch its own food, but instead had it served on a platter.

That was a mistake that cost far too many lives.

It didn’t matter who people were before they were infected, whether they had been saints or criminals, they all changed when the disease had fully taken them over. They became brutal and sadistic, eager to terminate those who were still healthy, and change them too. The disease didn’t discriminate. It just infected.

Survivors kept on running, pushing to find a safe place to stay for a night but the places to hide were rapidly becoming limited. The healthy people were becoming far too few, and the number of infected far too large.

Soon they would run out of places to flee and they’d be infected too.

There is no escape from the disease.

Mkgh05: I liked the plot a lot because it teaches to overcome struggles within us. It is not just a story of abuse or romance but one that teaches that life is not over yet and can be lived, that there is always hope of that one person who can be ypur everything. This book is full of sexual abuse and vio...

Anna Kirksey: Absolutely wonderful book. I love how Zoe goes through all these ups and down and while her mental state through all the torture isn't exactly ideal as she doesn't have any true fear of men like most abused women do. I believe that the point of the story was simply that, the darkest days of your ...

pearlandglitter: Please give us a better ending. This story is really great, but I hope if there's a third book in this series you can change the villain, because it kind of got out of hand if these jerk will attack the heroine in all the books just to get colette. But overall it's amazing series and I'd like to ...

Kimberly K: This was a very exciting story. I wasn't able to figuratively "put the book down" until I finished it.
