INFECtIOUS

Infectious, the first novel in The Infectious Series, is a post-apocalyptic love story with a zombie twist. Young Ivy has a killer sense of humor and a personal relationship with the Curse Giver. Ivy longs for freedom from her overbearing, spinster aunt and from Toccoa's protective fences. A trip outside the compound brings confusion, danger, romance and death into Ivy's already troubled life."Before I can even hope that we're safe, I smell him. His nauseating odor reaches my nostrils just a second before he has his arm around my neck. It's the smell of rotting flesh and body odor. The two smells, though equally gross, are in opposition to each other—the smell of death mixed with the smell of activity and life. That's what a zombie is, polar-opposites coexisting. Physically alive, but spiritually dead. And cursed. He's behind my seat and his grip is an iron band across my neck."Six years ago, when millions of people disappeared from the face of the earth in a silent instant, all hell broke loose. People did what you'd expect; they panicked. We've been programmed with the will to survive--to care for our loved ones at any cost. Husbands became murderers. Children became thieves. The world turned upside-down and survival was all that anyone could think about. That was before we knew about the disease.
