Nobody knew where the virus came from. FOX News said it had been set loose by ISIS, using spores that had been invented by the Russians in the 1980s. MSNBC said sources indicated it might've been created by engineers at Halliburton and stolen by culty Christian types fixated on the Book of Revelation. CNN reported both sides. And while every TV station debated the cause, the world burnt.
Pregnant school nurse, HARPER GRAYSON, has seen lots of people burn on TV, but the first person she saw burn for real was in the playground behind her school. But when she realises she has become infected, she is determined to find a way to survive - at least long enough to see her child born. No matter what is left of the world for them to live in.
With the epic scope of THE PASSAGE and the emotional impact of THE ROAD, this is one woman's story of survival at the end of the world.

If you're ready to take your love of teen dystopian fiction into adulthood then this is the book for you. Don't be fooled by the bleak storyline of people trying to survive a wildfire of the spontaneous combustion plague engulfing the world. This book delivers plenty of familiar pop culture references with likeable "glowing" characters. If this book ever becomes a movie it would be one the first apocalyptic movies to have a sing along including references from Mary Poppins to Taylor Swift.
The story had me hooked from the start to finish, reminiscent of other books like The Firestarter and The Stand by Stephen King and also Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. This book portrays a similar storyline of how the true horror of what is going on is created by humans and not the monsters portrayed in the story. - Christopher (QBD)
