Not only has Vicky made it to Home-an underground self-sufficient complex-in one piece, but Flynn has turned up too, following behind after her when she'd feared he'd died. Now they're secure, Vicky can keep Flynn safer than she's been able to since the outbreak over a decade ago ... At least that's the plan. However, in this new world, where the diseased roam free, there's always a threat hiding in the shadows. Having convinced herself Home would be safe, Vicky has to come to terms with the fact that nowhere's safe in this world anymore. And maybe the biggest threat comes from within the complex rather than outside of it. With her senses more finely tuned than ever before, Vicky must remain as vigilant as she always has. If she's going to survive amongst the diseased and the healthy, maybe she should give Flynn the responsibility he both deserves and is more than capable handling. The Alpha Plague 5 is a fast-paced post-apocalyptic survival thriller. REVIEWS I loved everything about the book - Amazon customer This is such a great series....and I think this is one of the best installments yet... - Amazon customer.

"This book is likely to keep you up at night. It's the only story I know of where the monster is more scary at the end of the book than when you first meet it - and it's quite disturbing when you first meet it." MASKED - SOMETIMES IT’S BETTER TO NOT KNOW WHAT'S UNDERNEATH. Jacob Davies is an alcoholic who’s been sober for twenty years. When he watches his dad lose his battle against pancreatic cancer it sends his life into chaos and the cravings return stronger than ever. Lost in his grief, he starts to see visions of a masked man that no one else can see. A man who knows things Jacob is yet to find out. A man who has answers to questions Jacob didn’t realise he had. Lucy, Jacob’s wife, stood by him the first time he fell into alcoholism. As he starts to drink again, she makes it perfectly clear she won’t do it a second time. Not now they have two teenage children. The visions and Jacob’s grief send him on a journey that leads him to the brink of losing both his family and sanity. As he tries to hold everything together, maybe his only way out is to understand why he’s seeing the masked figure. Although maybe it will make everything a hell of a lot worse ... Masked is a psychological horror about grief, addiction, and deceit.

Written with the narrative tension of The Road and the exquisite terror of classic Stephen King, Bird Box is a propulsive, edge-of-your-seat horror thriller, set in an apocalyptic near-future world—a masterpiece of suspense from the brilliantly imaginative Josh Malerman. Something is out there . . . Something terrifying that must not be seen. One glimpse and a person is driven to deadly violence. No one knows what it is or where it came from. Five years after it began, a handful of scattered survivors remain, including Malorie and her two young children. Living in an abandoned house near the river, she has dreamed of fleeing to a place where they might be safe. Now, that the boy and girl are four, it is time to go. But the journey ahead will be terrifying: twenty miles downriver in a rowboat—blindfolded—with nothing to rely on but her wits and the children’s trained ears. One wrong choice and they will die. And something is following them. But is it man, animal, or monster? Engulfed in darkness, surrounded by sounds both familiar and frightening, Malorie embarks on a harrowing odyssey—a trip that takes her into an unseen world and back into the past, to the companions who once saved her. Under the guidance of the stalwart Tom, a motely group of strangers banded together against the unseen terror, creating order from the chaos. But when supplies ran low, they were forced to venture outside—and confront the ultimate question: in a world gone mad, who can really be trusted? Interweaving past and present, Josh Malerman’s breathtaking debut is a horrific and gripping snapshot of a world unraveled that will have you racing to the final page.

Coffee, to make slaving away in her cell culture lab at Green Fields Biotech a little more bearable on a Friday afternoon when everyone is home already. What she doesn't count on is a group of terrorists blowing up all the entrances to the building and taking her and a select few others hostage. Bree soon finds herself conflicted.
