Book Description

1 Feb 2012
A deadly strain of flu has mysteriously mutated, causing the deaths of millions throughout Ireland and beyond. But the infected don't stay dead for long, rising up to become flesh-eating monsters.

In a quarantined lab just outside Belfast, lab worker Ellis and security guard Abe fight their way through corridors of the living dead, determined to expose a gruesome truth.

Ageing conspiracy theorist Tom wracks his brain to figure out what went wrong.

Meanwhile, a young child and her two unlikely wards find themselves in the middle of a cat and mouse game involving the remains of the military, a covert government department and the ever increasing throng of dead.

The fate of humanity lies in their hands.

FEVER is the sequel to 2010's bestselling zombie horror book, FLU.

Product Description

Review

An old school zombie novel with fresh pop culture references and a blood-stained nod towards Robert Kirkman's THE WALKING DEAD. --Michael Wilson (THIS IS HORROR)

Breathless and unrelenting, you cannot fail to turn the page and see what happens next. --JD Gillam (STARBURST MAGAZINE)

FEVER wears its reanimated heart proudly on its sleeve. Simmons builds on the nightmare world he created in FLU and manages to make it even more horrific and diseased. A sequel which surpasses the original.
--David Moody (Bestselling Author of the HATER and AUTUMN Series)

5.0 out of 5 stars Action-horror at its bloodiest best 9 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a sucker for post-apocalyptica. No matter how terrible it is, much like armageddon, I'll see it through until the end... unless it's Uwe Boll's House of the Dead; I walked out of that particular flick.

Thankfully, I encountered no such problems with Fever, the latest undead offering from Wayne Simmons.

Although this novel can be categorised as a sequel to Flu, I would suggest that description is not entirely accurate. The events of Fever not only encompass the chronology of Flu but add a little preamble and also reveals the fate of those left standing at the end of Flu. Simmons skilfully weaves the events of Flu into Fever without them becoming intrusive, obvious or simply an exercise in repetition. Fever is very much an expansion and development of the nightmarish vision of Northern Ireland that Simmons created in Flu.

For me, the greatest surprise came when Simmons employed a plot device that I have encountered only in Justin Cronin's The Passage and again, the revelation that came with it was quite the shock to the system and made Fever all the more memorable.

Critically, I suspect that some may not appreciate the set-up of Fever, with very small chapters, darting between the different threads that Simmons develops here. However, I would suggest that such criticism is ill-founded since this particular style compelled me to read on and at all times the plight of the characters involved was fresh in my mind.

On that note, yet again Simmons conjures up characters that are certainly not your stereotypical Hollywood zombie fodder.

Again, Wayne Simmons has created another slice of zombie-fried gold! FEVER surpasses FLU in unforgiving, blood-soaked terror. No character is safe. There are no real heroes, just realistic, terrified individuals trying to survive as the world falls down around them. The characterisation is superb, and apart from one part of the story I wasn't sure about, the story is written with no small amount of skill and energy.
From the beginning at the research labs, where the there is a deep feeling of being suffocated and surrounded by the undead, to the end where the plot strands converge, it is non-stop brilliance. FLU was very good, but FEVER is better, in my humble opinion. The story opens up and the destruction of society is described as the virus sweeps Northern Ireland and beyond. Mr. Simmons doesn't hold back - he kills characters you come to care for and grow fond of. He has no mercy - I even think he enjoyed killing them!
Remember, no one is safe in the world of FEVER. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, a must read 17 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I stumbled upon wayne's books and have never looked back, read 'Flu' first and was caught up in how good the writing was, strong characters, particularly Lark, action fast moving and always kept my attention. finished and was hungry for more, then along come comes 'Fever'. to be honest it doesn't get much better than this, this book will leave you feeling as though you have been hit by a ten ton truck, fast paced, action sequences are some of the best i've read setting up quite nicely for the final sequences, won't give anything away, can't wait for the next installment, just buy it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Good to Put Down! 12 April 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been waiting for this since I read FLU. Long wait but worth it. FEVER goes back to the start but you eventually catch up with the previous story. I particularly liked Part One of the book - will say nothing but let you read it yourself. My only gripe is that the book was read very quickly and now I have to wait and see if there will be a third to the series.

In short, if you liked FLU you will definitely enjoy FEVER.

5.0 out of 5 stars death by sneezing 20 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback
Be warned this book does not immediately follow the events in Flu (Simmons first book in the series),but shifts around in time a bit, once I got my head around that we were off at a hundred miles an hour.The book is broken into snappy chapters that once again breathe life into the dead old clichés of zombiedom. The Northern Ireland setting (so haunted literally by the past) comes into play and characters you thought might survive succumb and those you wish would really die, er go on. The last line is very chilling as in Flu.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fast Unforgiving Killer Fever 19 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback
Wayne Simmons has outdone himself with this fantastic sequel (prequel) to his brilliant novel Flu.
The story starts of fast and continues at a break-neck speed right until the very end giving the reader, all out action and a plot that will leave you begging for more.

The horror in this book is gory and violent. The zombies are those of the traditional Romero style, shambling through the book and ripping the throats of the characters you grow to love.... but the real class and story telling comes from the intricate plot Wayne Simmons has created. Conspiracy and Government cover ups drip from the pages of this book and the thrill and suspense created by the author will keep you gripped until the very end.

The little nods to Flu - dashed throughout Fever's chapters, helps the reader to connect the plot to the orignal and also reminds us that there are survivors from the first instalment, just waiting to be rescued. The subtle hints the author gives us provide a nostalgic excitement and keeps the reader emotionally involved with the characters.

I highly recommend this book to fans of the genre. It is possibly one of the best plot driven zombie novels available today and Wayne Simmons has once again proved he is one of the leading new voices in the horror genre. All praise must go the authors ability to create such a great story, with such a twisting plot that remains exciting throughout the entire book.

I want more....
