Scientists are the new rock stars. The infection has been contained for several months, and the world is celebrating. But humans are still dying. Rebekah Taylor has seen it firsthand. Her husband was killed right in front of her by the very creatures that humans were told they no longer had to fear.

Rebekah is determined to find out who is responsible for the death of her husband and the obvious cover-up. Fueled with revenge, she begins to find answers that lead to one frightening conclusion. The apocalypse might be over, but the battles are just beginning.

I extended my legs out and up on the last upward motion, and wrapped my legs around the bar. The moment the bar was tucked behind my knees a wave of relief washed through me. I did it. My body was now arched across the ceiling of the cage. My hands securely fastened to the rings and my knees locked onto the trapeze bar. The only thing left to do was release my fingers from the rings and hang upside down from the bar before swinging over to the fence. It really didn’t seem this complicated when I was standing on the mat.

Just as I was about to release my fingers, the front door sprang open with a large crash against the metal wall.

“You in here, Frank?” a man’s voice boomed through the mostly empty space. I heard more footsteps come in behind the man. Something shifted in the gym as the man’s voice got increasingly agitated. “Frank.”

I heard the two fighters in the ring mumble something to one another and snap the ropes as they exited the ring.

“Do you know where Frank is?” the same man yelled at the two fighters.

“Probably in his office. We don’t want any trouble,” one of the fighters said.

“Let these two gentlemen out,” the man directed.

I heard the men’s footsteps scurry out of the building as my pulse began pounding in my ears. I was stuck.

The way I was positioned made it impossible for me to see who was at the front entrance.

“I don’t have what you’re looking for,” Frank stated. He took a few steps backward, and he came into my view.

Who were these people? What was going on?

“Don’t you mean who?”

There was silence.

“The girl? Have you seen her?” the man asked.

“No. She hasn’t been in for weeks.”

Girl? As far as I knew I was the only female with a membership.

“I can tell when you’re lying, Frank,” the man said. Several pairs of footsteps shuffled toward Frank, bringing into view five large males, all dressed in black.

“Let’s try this again. Has she been in here recently?”

If it was me they were looking for, Frank could easily point toward the ceiling and the charade would be up. But he didn’t do it. Instead, his voice remained steady and his eyes fastened on whoever was in front of him.

“Screw you,” Frank said.

“Then why’s her truck parked outside?” the man asked.

Frank said nothing.

The sound of the safety being clicked off echoed in the warehouse, and my head pounded as I hung sideways, my grip barely holding on. Any movement and I would surely catch their attention.

“You do understand this isn’t merely a threat?” the man asked.

Frank nodded.

Three of the five men turned around, and I caught a glimpse of TRAC printed on the back of their jackets as they took a few steps away from Frank.

Afraid to make any noise, I slowly let out my breath through my mouth and squeezed my fingers as tightly as possible.

“Alright, boys,” the man said and that was it.

The gun went off and Frank crumpled into a lifeless pile on the concrete floor. My body began shaking, and my mouth fell open as I watched the pool of blood seep into the concrete floor.

    I love the apocalyptic books and read whatever I can get my hands on. This is actually the first that has a wife avenging her husband and it sounds tragic and terrific. Typically, it seems to be single people who are meeting others. Love the idea:)
