Publisher's Summary

After living through the hatred and insanity of 2020, renowned geneticist, Daniel Magnus has decided that humanity has reached its peak as a species. It’s time to tear down and start again. And what better way to eradicate humanity than by unleashing the monsters inside each of us?

Destroying mankind is simple compared to perfecting a new version of mankind. Just as evil resides within all of us, the hero does as well. It’s just much harder to bring out. The Chosen are those few who survive the process. They become greater in every regard. The other 98 percent however, become the stuff of nightmares. Wickedly cunning and ferociously strong, they are insatiable demons that make the average zombie look like it's made of sticks and string.

Into this cataclysm Bryce Carter is thrown wearing nothing but a hospital gown.  He dared to defy Magnus, who felt injecting him with the serum just wasn’t punishment enough. Barefoot and bleeding, Bryce has to fight his way out of a city overrun with zombies.

Led by the demons, the dead sweep across the streets like a grey river, forcing him to crawl through sewers and down into the dark tunnels beneath the blood-soaked streets. He’s hounded relentlessly and growing desperate as he only has so much time. Nuclear weapons are being readied and soon the city will be nothing but dust and ash.

another home run by Peter Meredith. really enjoyed the characters as well as the narration by Rishi Katz. my only complaint is the abrupt ending. Really hoping for a book two!

He does it again

From a crazy little heroic girl to a smiling demon I’m not sure our Peter sleeps at night
Peter Meredith Is by far one of the best apocalyptic writers I’ve ever seen

PETER MEREDITH - ANOTHER WINNER!!

I'm a huge fan of Peter Meredith's work, he is a super talented author who can really "pack the punch" in his stories. Diverse, interesting, challenging characters, action packed apocalyptic awesomeness!

This is a modern apocalyptic tale, and you'll soon begin to understand the madness of Daniel Magnus. He is a wicked adversary, and the fight won't be easy.
There's zombies, demons, and all sorts of crazy stuff going on. If you know Peter Meredith's work, he's really kicked it up a notch with this series. I can't wait to get more and more and more of this, it's worth two credits to buy this!!

Do it, listen, and you can thank me later. Loved it!!!

Love the book but the narration ... SIGH

As usual Peter Meredith comes through! Great story! BUT the narrator for the voice of Maddy is TERRIBLE! Almost ruins the story. Loud, nasal and annoying. Honestly couldn't she come up with a better voice? Other than the one voice it's a great story.
Why didn't anyone tell this narrator to come up with something better? A easily avoided mar on an otherwise good production.

As always writer provides a good apocalypse novel

This book is nonstop. I got exhausted for the characters. MC, female and male scientist who a maniac who wants to make the perfect people in his utopia wants to hire. Because they wouldn’t work with him, he injects them with an experimental vaccine/enhancing serum and kicks the two out of his utopia back into a NYC. This happens right before his zombie virus is let out all over the world to kill all the imperfect people. They attempt to survive.
