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!

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.
