Product Description

Product Description

Joseph Souza—Winner of the 2013 Maine Literary Award for Speculative Fiction!

Colonel Tag Winters receives a mysterious call while on vacation—a deranged terrorist playing a game of cat-and-mouse has released a novel virus on Cooke’s Island, Maine on the busiest day of the summer. Now his family has gone missing and all evidence points to him as the perpetrator of this biological event. Winters soon realizes that he must prevent the unsuspecting population from leaving Cooke’s Island or else risk this insidious plague from spreading to the mainland.

His fierce will to survive, as well as clear his good name, fuels his determination to discover the true perpetrator of this terrorist attack. As Cooke’s Island descends into unspeakable violence and mayhem, Winters must find his family and whisk them off it before they too fall victim. In the tradition of horror writers Stephen King and Dean Koontz, The Liger Plague is a blistering apocalyptic thriller that's impossible to put down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Liger Plague = Living Infected *SPOILER ALERT* 27 Nov 2013
By Ursula K. Raphael TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
*may contain spoilers for some readers*

The Liger Plague by Joseph Souza might possibly be a new twist in the zombie genre; if the living infected in 28 Days Later fall into the realm of zombies, readers should at least consider adding Souza's latest creation to the list. The Liger infected are unable to control their actions, they feed on human flesh, and they "hunt" much like traditional hordes. Due to the mysterious nature of the deadly hybrid virus, it's possible Souza's first novel in his new series didn't reveal the entire transformation of the infected.

The majority of the story takes place on Cooke Island, where Tag, an ARMY scientist who specializes in the study of biological weapons, owns a summer home. Just as he is about to join his wife and daughter on the island for an art festival, Tag receives a warning that a new deadly virus is about to be released on the island. What follows is Tad's struggle to quarantine the island, find his family & fight the infected...not to mention all the survivors looking to gather supplies by any means necessary.

Tag's two main companions on the island are Fez, a kid who can't find his parents, and Versa, the most unpleasant character that lives on the island. (If I were Tag, I would have thrown Versa into a crowd of ravenous infected, and been done with her, right at the start.) Tag's adversaries include a bunch of bikers, some religious nuts, the local law enforcement and the government agents on the mainland. Tag is not by any means the only capable survivor, but he appears to be the only one who understands how much worse the situation will be if the Liger virus finds a way off the island.

This book had potential but there were too many plot holes, illogical decisions and unrealistic behaviours. I know it's a zombie-type fantasy but the humans should have behaved and talked like real people, and the government or military would have intervened at some point during an outbreak of an unknown infection. They would not have stayed away just on the say-so of one man.

The 'zombies' (infected) were hungry for flesh yet our hero managed to have a conversation with some of them and gained valuable information before they resumed their loping and lunging. That just seemed a bit daft, even for a zombie tale. And don't get me started on all the medical mistakes! Rigor mortis doesn't set in 2 seconds after death, smallpox wasn't around in 1985, etc. etc.

I didn't like the writing style because it seemed rather wooden and stilted. Sometimes wrong words were used or used in the wrong context. The book was written in the 3rd person yet it only followed one person's viewpoint, which seemed like a waste as it could have been improved by incorporating other viewpoints. I wondered whether there was a reason for this but if so I didnt find it.

My other problem was that this tale was very plot-driven and there was very little characterisation and almost no emotion coming from the people who were in such a desperate and dangerous situation. Events were often described in a plodding manner and we were being 'told not shown' throughout.
