About the Book
A virus unlike anything the world has seen before hits major cities in several countries around the world, killing millions, and causing an immediate quarantine of the infected cities. There is no logic to the infection pattern, and very little is known about the virus, except that it appears able to mutate and adapt to any treatment designed to stop it. The situation grows darker, until miraculously a cure is found
A mysterious corporation comes forward promising a cure, not just for the virus, but for disease in general. While attempting an unusual form of stem cell research they have stumbled upon a treatment that allows the body to break down and reformat cells, and use them to fight the virus.
The cure appears to work even better than anyone could have predicted, and then the quarantine zones go dark. The only information released to the public is that the cure has had an unforeseen “reaction” to the virus. Communications have been severed to avoid panic, but the situation in under control. Rumors abound, stories about superhuman creatures, and the dead rising. When the military escorts teams of scientists and medical personnel into the quarantine zones words like apocalypse, and zombies, begin to be whispered, but no one truly knows what is happening behind those barriers.
Isaac is a survivor trapped in the Southern California Quarantine zone. The story is told from his perspective as he retells his story, starting from his wife’s death, through his discovery of the terrifying truth of the “Haunted”, and the mystery behind a secret society known only as “The Sons of Heaven”.
About the Author
He started writing mostly with songs and poems, but eventually began writing stories. Thomas was into his twenties before he knew that writing was what he wanted to do as a career. He had lots of ideas, but struggled with the discipline, and production. After working for seven years in retail, he continued to chase his dream on the side, when he finally hit a crossroads of sorts. He had kept telling himself that his job was just a job, and that writing was his career.
Tomas Harwick: "Sometimes you reach a point where you know that you have to take at least one good run at your dream. Everyone may think you’re crazy, and everyone might include yourself sometimes, but you just know in your gut that it is time to stop talking about it, and time to do something about it. This was that time. I took some time to pray about it, came to a decision, and then left my job, moved back home, and have been writing for over a year now."
