Publisher's Summary

It came from space.
Something virulent. Something evil. Something new. And it is infecting the town of Falls Breath.
Carried to Earth in a freak meteor shower, an alien virus has infected the animals. Pets and wildlife have turned rabid, attacking without warning. Dogs and cats terrorize their owners, while deer and wolves from the neighboring woods hunt in packs, stalking and killing their human prey without mercy.
As the town comes under siege, Lauren searches for her boyfriend, while her policeman father fights to restore some semblance of order against a threat unlike anything he has seen before. The natural order has been upended completely, and nowhere is it safe - and it is spreading.
Soon, the city will find itself in the grips of mass hysteria.
To survive, humanity will have to fight tooth and nail.

True Horror

As a life long animal lover, this was a truly horrifying concept and execution. I kept glancing towards my little dog as I was listening....

An alien life-source infects the animals of Falls Breath, causing them to viciously attack humans. But aren't humans animals, too? The residents of Falls Breath will soon find out...

Joe Hempel delivers fantastic narration as always. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a gory horror story!

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Not an easy read or for the faint of heart

Reminiscent of "Zoo" by James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge, meteors hit the earth and bring with them an alien virus that spreads quickly. First to the animals, who become vicious and begin killing humans as well as each other in graphically violent ways. But, as you would think, being attacked by the animals does not transmit the disease, it just takes a few more hours for humans to begin killing and eating each other. Most of the characters get killed off throughout the book, leaving only two women from the beginning of the story to the end. How humans deal with their new world is frightening.

This was a hard story to keep listening to because of the graphic descriptions of the violence. One character in particular has a horrible back story to begin with, but it is told so you will understand why he so easily succumbs to the virus and the horrible things he does as a result. Definitely not for everyone. Many people will find this just to gross and may not be able to finish this book.

Overall, it was well written and there was character development through backstories. I don't know that I could listen to this again, but what kept me going was Joe Hempel's fantastic narration. He is a master in this genre, keeping tension, fear, and even disgust in his voices at times.

A one hour short story follows that is just as graphically creepy.
