Freeman is a genius with an uncommon mixture of memory, intelligence and creativity. He lives in a worldwide utopia, but it was not always so. There was a time known as the Grind—when Freeman’s people lived as slaves to another race referred to simply as “Master.” They were property. But a civil rights movement emerged. Change seemed near, but the Masters refused to bend. Instead, they declared war.
Now, the freed world is threatened by a virus, spread through bites, sweeping through the population. Those infected are propelled to violence, driven to disperse the virus. Uniquely suited to respond to this new threat, Freeman searches for a cure, but instead finds the source—the Masters, intent on reclaiming the world. Freeman must fight for his life, for his friends and for the truth, which is far more complex and dangerous than he ever imagined.
Robinson’s lightning fast, cutting-edge novels have won over thriller, horror, science-fiction and action/adventure fans alike, and he has received high praise from peers like James Rollins, Jonathan Maberry, and Scott Sigler. Uprising is a wildly inventive zombie novel with a high-tech twist that will keep readers guessing until the very last sentence.
“Drawing on elements of The Wizard of Oz, Star Wars and Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead movies, [Uprising] proceeds at a nonstop pace as former slaves survive one cliffhanger after another. A fresh twist on the zombie apocalypse.”
“Robinson is known for his great thrillers, and this time he has written a novel that
will be in contention for various science fiction awards at the end of the year. Robinson continues to amaze with his active imagination.”
“Uprising is an incredible ride from the first paragraph to the last jaw-dropping page. This book will be talked about and read for years to come in the same way that Orwell’s 1984 was and is today. A MUST read for all who think they’re human.”
