DESCRIPTION:

A meteorite fell into the Tennessee River in Decatur, Alabama. A fissure inside the lump of stone contained parasitic microbes that were released into the water. Small fish ate the parasite colonies. They were in turn eaten by larger fish, which were caught by a local fisherman. This introduced them into the human food chain and initiated a zombie apocalypse.

It began with a 911 call in Decatur. When the caller didn’t speak to the dispatcher she sent the police, who called an ambulance after finding Roy Akins unconscious on the floor. Patient zero died in the Emergency Room of Decatur General Hospital.

The cadaver was taken to the hospital morgue. Inside Mr. Akins’ body, the parasitic microbes that had killed him began to starve due to the lack of nutrients, normally provided by the host. This caused the clusters located inside his skull to become more active. They generated nerve impulses that they sent throughout the body. One by one, the parasites were able to reanimate Roy’s central nervous system. Brain damage from the lack of oxygen had destroyed the victim’s cognitive ability, and his circulatory system had collapsed and had to be restarted, all of which took time to happen.

Two hours after his death, Roy awoke to a ravenous hunger.

DESCRIPTION:

By day, Sondrine Renfrew works at Cimmerian’s Curio Emporium, her aunt’s apothecary and antique shop in London, 1875. By night, she weaves fire, water, and air into both inanimate objects and living creatures. When a hooded stranger offers Sondrine a snow globe in trade for medicinal herbs, she accepts, enchanted by the castle, forest, and sea encapsulated under the glass.

Her enchantment fades, however, when her deceitful aunt betroths her to one of London’s wealthiest men–a complete stranger. Determined to escape the marriage, Sondrine trades her corset for trousers and decides to run away. With one foot out the door, she falls down a veritable rabbit hole into Winterhaven, the haunting world inside the snow globe.

Sondrine soon discovers her arrival in Winterhaven is no accident. There, she meets Shán, a man who broods more than the darkened sky above. Turns out Shán is not to be trusted. Not only is he the man who sold Sondrine the snow globe, he is a bounty hunter employed by the king. The beginnings of a sovereign war have been set in motion and an Immortal queen, one who uses fire as a weapon, is set on destroying Winterhaven. Because of her Elemental gifts, only Sondrine has the means to stop the queen. If Sondrine refuses the king’s request, he will behead her. If she rises to the challenge of killing the Immortal queen, her death is just as imminent. After all, an Immortal queen cannot be killed.

Or can she?
