By M.F. Wahl
More than a zombie story
Humanity’s war against the living dead has been lost. In the wake of the zombie apocalypse, the living fight fiercely for what little they have.
In this hell-on-earth Casey, armed with a baseball bat, and joined by a mute boy named Alex, struggles to survive. When a man named Danny stumbles upon them, it’s mistrust at first sight – but times are desperate. Danny leads them to a thriving settlement where danger lurks beneath the guise of kindness.
It’s kill or be killed in a world where power is life, and the earth is overrun by walking dead.
I am not a zombiephile. I’m not even really a zombie fan, but one does not need to be to enjoy this exceptional tale by M.F. Wahl. Disease is a horror story set in a post zombie apocalypse world where there are worse things than the Risen.
Wahl’s writing flows like prose in stark contrast to the horrific content. I was enthralled, entertained, often shocked, even sometimes saddened. The presentation of the zombies and the apocalyptic zombie event stays true to accepted zombie basics while allowing for subtle differences between the bitten and the risen dead, as well as variants due to zombie evolution. This almost flawless presentation allows the story to flow smoothly.
And the story is the thing. In addition to the zombies, zombie encounters, action scenes, and gore, we have a well thought out and skillfully written story about human characters, their strengths, their weaknesses, and their incredible evils. The characters are well fleshed-out (pun intended) and relatable, with individual personalities and back stories. They are people, not just stereotypes. Wahl daringly pushes boundaries with the characters and plot.
It’s a must-read for all horror fans.
