A propulsive and chillingly prescient novel of suspense and terror from the Bram Stoker award-winning author of The Cabin at the End of the World and A Head Full of Ghosts. "Absolutely riveting." -- Stephen King In a matter of weeks, Massachusetts has been overrun by an insidious rabies-like virus that is spread by saliva. But unlike rabies, the disease has a terrifyingly short incubation period of an hour or less. Those infected quickly lose their minds and are driven to bite and infect as many others as they can before they inevitably succumb. Hospitals are inundated with the sick and dying, and hysteria has taken hold. To try to limit its spread, the commonwealth is under quarantine and curfew. But society is breaking down and the government's emergency protocols are faltering. Dr. Ramola "Rams" Sherman, a soft-spoken pediatrician in her mid-thirties, receives a frantic phone call from Natalie, a friend who is eight months pregnant. Natalie's husband has been killed--viciously attacked by an infected neighbor--and in a failed attempt to save him, Natalie, too, was bitten. Natalie's only chance of survival is to get to a hospital as quickly as possible to receive a rabies vaccine. The clock is ticking for her and for her unborn child. Natalie's fight for life becomes a desperate odyssey as she and Rams make their way through a hostile landscape filled with dangers beyond their worst nightmares--terrifying, strange, and sometimes deadly challenges that push them to the brink.  Paul Tremblay once again demonstrates his mastery in this chilling and all-too-plausible novel that will leave readers racing through the pages . . . and shake them to their core.… (més)

Received as an ARC from NetGalley.
I am officially now a late to the gate Paul Tremblay fan. I have only recently started reading his works but so far they have all impressed me greatly. Reading this novel during the COVID19 quarantine gave me a very surreal feeling. The author describes an eerily accurate portrayal of self isolation, quarantine, fighting at the stores, miscommunication between hospitals and government entities, misinformation about the virus itself, lack of PPE gear and appropriate training for medical personnel, etc. I was very impressed, Tremblay absolutely nailed it! The book gets you invested in the characters and you become completely immersed in their journey to safety. My only dislike was the ending, felt like we were building towards a climax and then just petered out at the end. Other than that this was a thrilling, fast paced read and I highly recommend it. ( )

As always, Tremblay's writing keeps you turning pages breathlessly. In this novel, a variant of rabies has broken out and is killing both people and animals. Those suffering become aggressive and try to bite whatever is available. Nat, 8 months pregnant, is attacked in her home and her husband is killed. She goes to her best friend, Ramola, who is a doctor. The to begin a race against time to save Natalie's baby even though both women know that there bis no hope for Natalie.
What Tremblay does, better than any author I know, is create terrifying events that could actually happen. ( )

Thank you Paul Tremblay for getting me out of a bad book reading funk! I sped through this one as it is nerve wracking and keeps you on a tight lead.
Natalie is 8 months pregnant and finds herself in the middle of a rabies outbreak pandemic. During an attack, her husband dies and an infected man bites her.
Desperate, she reaches out to her long time friend Ramola to help her get to a hospital to try and save herself and the baby.
What happens next is the race against time to reach a hospital that will help Nats before she succumbs to rabies. The action happens in around a few hours time and it feels like you are speed reading to see where it will all lead.
Fantastic edge of your seat reading here. ( )

Wow. I love this book. I read it in one day. I really wasn’t expecting to but I was caught up and it was a readathon.
Reading it during a quarantine was surreal. It is not about zombies. It is about a virus. A different one from the one we are experiencing but it still made me wonder, with more knowledge than I ever dreamt of, what choices would I make, would I be forced to make. My heart hurt for Ramola and Natalie. I kept questioning myself on how far I would go for a friend, even those I love as much as family. How strong would I be? I want to say so much more. Explore with the places my mind went. To do so, though, would spoil things for you. My advice is to read this book. Many of you will have experience to compare, to use as a basis for, what if?
It does get messy. There is violence. There are hard decisions. There is heartbreak. Once again, there are no zombies. This, to me, was way more realistic. You have been warned.
I received an electronic, uncorrected, copy of this book from the Facebook group, Scene of the Crime and Netgalley. Thank you to the publisher for making it available. My review is voluntary and based on my feelings and thoughts. ( )

Eerily coincidental timing with the pandemic. I had high expectations and it was a good fun read but it left me wanting something else to happen. ( )

It’s awful and still probably worse

They’re biters and rarely alone

And rarely alone.
