Plague Town is the first book in the Ashley Parker series by Dana Fredsti and a Horror Novel from Titan Books.
People are dying. Then they are waking up. Hungry.
In the small university town of Redwood Grove, people are succumbing to a lethal strain of flu. They are dying - but not for long.
Ashley Parker and her boyfriend are attacked by these shambling, rotting creatures that crave human flesh. Their lives will never be the same again.
As the town falls to ever-growing numbers of the infected, Ashley and a small band of survivors fight to contain the outbreak - but will they be enough?
Ashley Parker is trying to put the pieces of her life back together after divorcing her husband. Enrolled in classes at the local university, Ashley has finally found her niche - now if only she could shake off the last energy draining fatigue of the Walkers Flu - her life would be almost perfect.
That is until she and her boyfriend are attacked by zombies. Yes, zombies. Pure instinct drives Ashley to fight the zombie - but more take its’ place. Ashley and her boyfriend are overwhelmed and Ashley is bitten.
When she wakes she finds that the town has been quarantined and she has survived. Now under military supervision, Ashley is given the opportunity to train and fight the zombies.
Ashley and her team work to clear the campus of zombies and rescue any survivors before moving on to the outlying areas. Just when it looks like the tide is turning in their favor - news reaches the team that this is only the beginning...
I absolutely loved Plague Town - this is how I picture the zombie apocalypse.
Ashley is snarky and smart a$$ed and doesn’t take any crap from anyone. But she is also sympathetic and willing to help others. She’s just a regular person who’s survived an extraordinary event.
I can’t wait for more
I give Plague Town 5 out of 5 stars.
