Product Description

Product Description

Michael Evans, crippled survivor of the massacre at St. Davids, has only one goal left: to find his young daughter. And that means journeying north and discovering that during the five days he spent comatose in an underground bunker the world has changed dramatically.

And worse, it's still changing.

Struggling to come to terms with a world steeped in shocking violence and ever-present danger, Michael must adapt quickly to a new reality: the virus has already infected the population. But it isn't stopping there...

Q & A with the author


Q. How does Psychosis relate to the previous volumes of Wildfire Chronicles?
Psychosis is perhaps a little more epic in scope, and introduces some new characters, but primarily we're picking up right at the very moment that Shock ended, and following Michael, Rachel and Jason as they run into John Francis and begin to understand that they are dealing with a situation far larger and more dangerous than they believed. 
Q. One of those new characters takes the series in a surprising direction. What can you tell us about that?
I don't want to give too much away, but the character in question provides the eyes through which we see the people behind Project Wildfire and perhaps more importantly he reveals some important things about the virus. He is completely despicable, which made him a great deal of fun to write. The central idea with this character is that for most people the 'zombie apocalypse' is the worst thing that could possibly happen, but for him, it's like the world finally makes sense. He was born for it, and he plays a major role.
Q. The pace seems to be upping dramatically - was that a conscious choice?
Absolutely. I felt that Panic was a story that began slowly and increased in pace throughout. When I wrote Shock I wanted it to be short and punchy, like an extended scene from an action movie. I wanted to see if I could take that pace as a starting point for Psychosis and push it. I feel that sort of aggressive pacing is one of the defining characteristics of the series, so I try not to let it drop.
Q. Would you say Psychosis is the most gruesome volume yet?
Personally, I like horror that is unflinching. That's what I aim for. And Psychosis is all about things beginning to break down: trust, civilization, infrastructure, mental health. It's probably more extreme than the previous volumes, mostly because the characters are out in the open, on the run with threat coming at them from every direction. I love the idea of taking these characters from this small, quiet town on a ride into extraordinary danger and seeing how they cope.

5.0 out of 5 stars I adore this series 18 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a particular type of zombie (ish) book series to read. I had a quick search on my kindle and the first in this series (Panic) was free so I thought I'd give it a go. I have now read all the books in 3 days and impatiently tweeted the author for the next installment (he replied.. its 2 weeks from now). I love these books, they are the right amount of sci-fi mixed with horror and you really start to love the characters.

I just wish they were longer so I could read more!!

Mr Griffiths has written in the notes to his novels that he is surprised that people read and enjoy what he writes. He shouldn't be so shocked as he actually knows how to write; creating interesting characters, a great scenario and fast paced plot.
Psychosis continues the story of Rachel and the other survivors, with some new characters - good and bad - introduced to shake things up a bit. Personally I love the fact that Schizophrenic Alex makes an appearance, and the way he "grows" in the book opens up a scary new dimension which no doubt will be revealed in the next installment. There appears to be a fair few ideas drawn from other apocalyptic tales - Resident Evil, 28 Days Later, but as with the first novel the author puts his own spin on things and yes I will definitely be getting the fourth book when it appears.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addiction 14 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once again I am addicted to the next addition of Wildfire Chronicles, it is extremely well written with excellent characters who you find yourselves caring for. This series of books just sucks you into their world & won't let go with it's relentless grip . You keep finding yourself wanting to read some more all the time.

This author is definitely one to watch out for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great follow on from 'Panic' and 'Shock' 1 Oct 2013
By TeoIago
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This carries on where Panic and Shock left off. The horrors and scares within the story are ramped up a notch without taking anything away from the accomplished storytelling. You are constantly left wondering what will happen next, and, without wanting to sound too cliched, it's a real page turner.

The way in which the zombies evolve gives a very new, fresh feeling take on the zombie genre and is very cleverly written to make the extraordinary feel very real and believable. This is definitely a must read for anyone who has read Panic and Shock (and if you haven't, then go buy them, read them, then come back here and read this!).

I eagerly looked forward to future sequels and you should too....

5.0 out of 5 stars The best one yet! 21 Sep 2013
By Pyewacket TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
If you thought the first two books were scary then think again. This book is seriously scary.....the disease that the Scientists have unleashed upon the unsuspecting population is now mutating. The 'undead' or whatever they are, are starting to become slightly sentient. Michael still crippled is travelling with Jason and Rachel once again in a desperate bid to find his daughter Claire in Aberyswth. They hook up with a chap named John who professes amnesia but it is clear that he is military trained and knows more than he is letting on.

Elsewhere in the region an escapee from a lunatic asylum called Alex, has morphed back into his alter-ego the psychotic killer named Jake. He is wanted by the Scientists for some reason and they know he will make straight for them so contigency plans are put in place.....for what good they are worth. It would also seem that people with a certain blood type, are immune to the bites of the 'herd'.

I can honestly see this happening...........the world is over-populated and sooner or later when anti-biotics finally fail there will be a disease that wipes most of mankind off the face of the planet.

A really well written book which kept me page turning faster and faster to get to the conclusion. My only gripe is.........it was too short! :-)
