The Ridden

A novel by


People called them different things when they first appeared, Walkers, Cryptids, Infected, the Ridden, the most popular was also the least apt, Zombies.

Sands from across the ocean had blown in and covered everything in a fine dusting of granules, as they did every year. But this year they carried with them an infectious spore that infected anything that breathed.

Animals, humans, it showed no favorites and infected them all. If people were lucky, they retained the ability to think, if they weren’t then they became little more than monsters hungry for more spores.

Chris stumbled out of his cheap motel room after the worst night of his life and straight into the apocalypse.

This is not your normal zombie apocalypse story, for as Chris was about to find out. It’s not the monsters he needs to worry about.

It’s the humans.
