Epidemic/Sanctuary Book Tour


The Black Plague is ancient history. It killed 100 million people nearly seven centuries ago, halfway around the world from the technologically advanced research center at Stanford University. Scientists there have recently begun examining samples of bone marrow from plague-infected corpses unearthed in Europe. All the necessary safeguards are in place. What could go wrong?

Alyssa and Jake are away with their class on a highly anticipated year-end trip to Broadway with their senior acting class when all hell breaks loose at home. Traveling back, and trying to find their families, they encounter deadly results. Riots are breaking out. People are being evacuated. And they have no idea what's happening to their families.

Horrific ordeals, heart-pounding tragedy, and chance encounters harden them for what lies ahead. Faced with tormenting decisions, they're forced to follow their instinct for survival at any cost - even when the cost is a heart-wrenching decision of life or death.

A harrowing adventure of frightening discoveries, horrifying confrontations and narrow escapes in Epidemic, the first installment of the Mad World series.
Find out what's got everyone so terrified.

My Review
I received a free copy of Epidemic for my honest review.  I had never read a novel with Zombies before, and with this book, I was delightfully surprised.  Book 1 of Mad World tells of how the Zombie epidemic came to be.  Alyssa, has to grow up fast, be brave and strong when they try to find their families only to realize they may all be dead.  The end leaves you hanging when the group notices something different with the little boy Luke.  An awesome book, I read it in one sitting, it was quite an action packed page turner!


The year is 2017, and the Black Plague infection has swept across most of the United States, leaving death and chaos in its wake. Martial law is the rule rather than the exception, with outbreaks cropping up when they're least expected. Alyssa and her friends must not only battle outbreaks of the disease, but also find themselves pursued by government agents – men and women determined to track them down at any cost.

Fleeing north to the fabled Sanctuary, Alyssa, Jacob, DeAndre, Caitlyn, Risa and Luke face disturbing ordeals and terrible tragedy as they encounter unbelievable situations in their struggle to reach safety. Using their skills and wits in their fight to survive against ever worsening odds, they weather hardship, betrayal, and the ever-present specter of death as they flee north, all the while vowing to protect one another – and most of all their precious 5-year-old Luke, from a world gone mad.

Sanctuary, the second installment in the Mad World series, is a heart-rending adventure of astonishing revelations, tragic discoveries, agonizing separations and devastating losses that test these friends to their limits. With heart-pounding, edge-of-your-seat suspense at every turn, this is a story you will not be able to put down.

Find out what happens next.

My Review
In Book 2, we're five years in the future.  The group of kids who were just friends, have now become a family.  The CDC wants little Luke because they've found out he's a hybrid human and if they dissect him they may find a cure for this epidemic. Because of this they must stay on the run and hope to find the santuary that they heard about located in Canada.  Once again, a great page turner with a cliffhanger ending, a must read for all Apocalyptic/Zombie fans!
