How far would you go for love when all you love is DEAD?
Six months after the Necro Rabies pandemic has turned the world into hordes of rabid undead known as "Cujos," 21 year-old Rhonda Driscoll discovers her zombified fiance, Brad, in her old hometown.
Fearing that her Marine Colonel father will kill undead Brad, Rhonda flees, taking a road-trip with Brad in tow in hopes of starting a new life in a frightening and uncertain world complicated by numerous perils, pure horror, joy, heartbreak, and unconditional love.
Advance Praise for Rabid Heart
“Zombies and the end of days don't stand a chance against true love. Jeremy Wagner's RABID HEART is good, clean apocalyptic fun.”
— Alma Katsu, author of THE HUNGER
"Just when you think you've heard every love story, along comes RABID HEART. My man Jeremy Wagner proves once again he's as much of a wild man with words as he is with his guitar. This book is sick and sweet, and I say that with respect!"
-- Peter Blauner, Ny Times bestselling author of THE INTRUDER and SUNRISE HIGHWAY
Bad decisions, brisk pacing, and a love that transcends death permeate Wagner's gore-filled zombie romp. The U.S. military created the Necro-Rabies virus, which killed millions and reanimated their corpses into undead Cujos. Col. Kenneth Driscoll runs Fort Rocky Military Base in North Carolina, a sanctuary for a few hundred survivors. As his daughter, Rhonda, a hairdresser turned tough-as-nails fighter, patrols her nearby hometown, a fellow soldier threatens her with rape and her beloved fianc , Brad Savini, who was left for dead and Cujo-fied, saves her. Seeing good in Brad, she brings him back to the base but fears her unyielding father will kill him. Eventually they flee, hoping to find peace in Florida. It's a scary world out there for a young woman and the zombie love of her life, as she confronts cannibal dwarves, a life-threatening injury, a super Cujo, and two young children who need her to protect them. Wagner (The Armageddon Chord) leans hard on clich s, and the ending is predictable, but readers will cheer on Rhonda and her love-conquers-all attitude.
