I’m woefully behind on posting reviews of books I’ve read, so I’ll start with Joseph Souza’s latest entry in the post-apocalyptic, horror genre. This isn’t a zombie novel, but the reader will detect (not so subtly) a strong influence from Souza’s The Living Dead Series. The Liger Plague entertains on a visceral level. If you’re a fan of relentless action, bio-conspiracies and devious villains, you feel right at home here.
“Maine writer Joseph Souza knows a thing or two about horror. His Reawakening series put a new spin on the undead genre, and Liger carries on his tradition of redefining “everything apocalypse.” No zombies in this one, but you might not notice the difference when the Liger is unleashed on an unsuspecting island population. Once the action starts, Souza doesn’t pull any punches in this high-octane, race against the clock to stop a deranged bioweapons scientist. Cooke’s Island will never be the same again, and neither will any of its inhabitants. Not for the faint of heart, The Liger Plague is a blistering start to a promising high stakes cat and mouse” thriller/horror series.”
