After the Virus is a Post Apocalyptic novel by Meghan Ciana Doidge from Old Man in the CrossWalk Productions.
After the virus decimates 99.9% of the world’s population, and all traces of humanity along with it, Rhiannon and Will are forced to move beyond their past fame, fortune, and personal demons to rescue a mute girl from the clutches of two warring cults.
Rhiannon is an actress - or was an actress, before the world went to hell. A virus swept the land, killing all but a very few who, for unknown reasons, were immune.
Now all forms of social niceties have fallen to the wayside. It’s every man for himself - and for some men, that means every woman is his for the taking.
Rhiannon has been taken against her will - but she plans to escape - or die trying. Odds are not in her favor - the men are heavily armed - but even scarier than weapons are The Infecteds - beings who’ve been given the blood of those immune to the virus. This blood keeps them going - like mindless eating machines.
Will has drifted aimlessly from one survivor group to another until finally deciding to strike out on his own - find a place for himself in the world that is left. On one of his scavenger hunts, he finds an orphaned girl and takes her under his wing - providing her with a safe place in an unsafe world.
When Rhiannon meets Will - he offers her shelter as well - but her feeling of safety does not last long. She is being hunted - and she has brought danger right to Will’s door.
I enjoyed After the Virus. I am a huge fan of the post apocalyptic read and a total zombie nerd - though this is not a typical zombie story - it works for me.
I give After the Virus 4 out of 5 stars.
