Publisher's Summary

It began, as big events often do, with small things — a little girl, a little dog, and a microscopic virus that leads to a tragedy no one should ever have to face. Having lost his daughter to rabies, Dr. Aaron Pickman tries to derive some meaning from her death. In his search for a cure, he unleashes a virus that will bring the world to its knees. However, just as great tragedies often have small beginnings, great individuals can have humble origins...

Tammany, an injured woman running with a baby in her arms, has one slim, heart-stopping chance to save him.

Fletch, an infected man, tries desperately to protect his oldest friend.

And Louella, an old woman on her Pennsylvanian farm, offers shelter to survivors and becomes the unlikely leader of Camp North Star – one of the last outposts of uninfected humanity.

They are all frail, flawed, ordinary people who rise to meet the challenge of this deadly new threat. Yes, it is a time of plague; but in that darkness, they are the starlight.

I cant believe how good.

Beautifully written apocalyptic book. I’m no writer so I can’t explain exactly why this book was so good. I can only say it was well written. Full of characters you learn to really care for. Such a good book. Thank you.

An enjoyable read!

At first, I thought I wouldn't like this book but I really did. An interesting, relatable scenario for a zombie type apocalyptic event. The author provides a nice backstory that works up to the main group.

More about how it all started.

Last few chapters get into the survival of a group. A bit slow, but not bad.
