"This tense and vivid novel excels at creating an atmosphere of claustrophobic dread." BookLife
"fresh, unique, and exhilarating... but must warn readers that once they've picked the book up, they'll be hard pressed to set it back down. I loved it. Really, really well done!" Readers Favorite
"This book is for those who enjoy an apocalyptic story with aspects of horror woven in. Immediately, we feel like we are placed in a story from the masterful Hitchcock; "The Birds." It has all the parts of a good tale while also sprinkling in pieces of humor along the way." Quella's Reviews--This text refers to the paperback edition.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Horrible circumstances interspersed with some clever humour at times.
I think Horror not thriller would be a better description.
Looking forward to reading more from this talented author.

This will attract lovers of the zombie and general apocalyptic fiction alike. A follow up is a must.
The author doesn’t have a good ear for dialogue, but that isn’t a fatal flaw in this genre. The main character is an author of end of the world books. Which would be a cute gimmick, except in the book the secondary characters act as though this is a real qualification. The crisis aligns with the plot of a book he wrote. Just by coincidence. Except there is no proof that what the main character wrote about is actually the precipitating cause of the crisis in the book. There are a few obvious attempts to be self-deprecating, but the self indulgence of the author/main character is really cringeworthy. He wife is an FBI agent who practically killed a colleague by being afraid of dogs. Why that was included, I have no idea. But by including it, but not really addressing her guilt (was there any?), makes them wife completely unlikeable.
It is apparent that the author doesn’t like fat people, which is fine, but then why set your book on a cruise? Cruises are for old, fat people. Don’t hold it against then when they go on one! Asians are referred to as Orientals. It isn’t done offensively, but it is odd.
The explanation was found to be a parasite that is found in most mammals. This single celled amoeboid, named T-Gongii, infested the host brain, subtly rewiring parts for an unknown purpose and on known effect. . . until now. Thermophyllic bacteria from the volcanic clouds found a welcome home in the brains of warm-blooded mammals and merged with T-Gondii activating the rewired brains. Once activated, the host became able to identify anything not infected and became violently, ravenously, single- mindedly fixation on killing and consuming its prey.
The only safe place on earth may be the Regal European cruise ship, 'Intrepid', where Ted and T.J. Williams and the ship's officers and crew fought to keep the passengers alive and the ship afloat. Waves of red-eyed critters with murder on their minds wreaked havoc on the Intrepid and the latest wave of crazies were human!
This is a horror story in the tradition of Alfred Hitchcock and Rod Serling. The characters live and breath (for a while) in full Technicolor, brought to us from the mind of a master storyteller. The action is non-stop and insanely scary! Mindless rage and flesh-eating gluttonous appetites fuel the exciting prose. This is a must-read book, but choose where and when wisely! Read with a friend, or have a buddy standing by, but read it!
Overall, fun read, worth the price of admission. Would like to see more of this story as he suggested he may at the end. Plenty of interesting ways to go.
Although the book had just enough intrigue to keep me reading, I began to weary of it by the time I was a third of the way through. The author tends to overuse words to get a point across, as though we wouldn't get it if he chopped the redundancies or used short, snappy syntax. Also, I really couldn't get into most of the characters even the protagonists. Maybe especially the protagonists. I'm glad I stuck it out, though, because I had to know if the ending made the journey worthwhile. I think it did.
