Eight years ago the December Plague swept through the human population of earth. The Infected were driven mad by the disease, becoming violent and cannibalistic, killing even those closest to them without hesitation. Six years ago, the tiny surviving community of Immune humans found a cure, and the Infected began to wake up and realize what they’d done. Over time, society has begun to rebuild itself. It’s now ready to judge those responsible for the Plague. Nella Rider, the court psychologist and Frank Courtlen a defense attorney are trying to establish the truth. But more depends on it than they know. Can they find the answers they need before the fragile remains of humanity vanish for good?
Everyone knows I love outbreak and Zombie Fiction, I am happy to say that After the Cure is a step away from the traditional Zombie book, because instead of focusing on the outbreak and how it happens and how people survive, the story instead revolves around what happens after people are cured from the disease.
I love the moral dilemmas of how do people deal with the cured, how do you get past what they have done to survive as they were, and even worse how do the previously infected live with themselves knowing exactly what they have done to the people they love.
Dr Nella , our heroine survived the outbreak, it is now her job to work out who was responsible for the outbreak in the first place.
I loved this book, once started it was hard to put down. The story is horrifying but heartbreaking at the same time, with action put in the mix.
I highly recommend this book for people who love Zombie fiction but are getting a bit board with the usual storyline.
