“Tremendously Different Apocalyptic Epic”
“I have never read a zombie book quite like this one.”
“Oh my god! This was one of the scariest zombie books I have ever read.”
(The first book in the Of Sudden Origin universe.)

Call them zombies if you must; America, is at the mercy of a ruthless infection that devolves the intellect into that of a simian fiend. Horrible, yes, merciless, yes, blood thirsty, unquestionably - but it is the offspring of the infected who will change the world: The children of the Fiends are a mutant mind controlling abomination, and there is no defense against them.
Jon Washington is one misstep from being torn apart, eaten alive or becoming a psychotic killer. Broken down in a New Hampshire forest with millions of psychopathic Americans marching on his heals, he meets Nikki Rosen, a disgraced Marine. Together they will cross a crucible of challenges that has outwitted and killed the most resilient among us. In an effort to solve what is being called The Cain’s pandemic, a Hot Zone Team of CDC scientists backed by Special Forces will go to Florida. Along the way they will stare into the the very face of evil. Happenstance combines these disparate groups into an explosive conclusion. Will any survive?
