A novel of Survival Horror, Suspense and Zombies. So you think you had a rotten day? Think again….. Saranac Lake is an isolated community in Upper New York State, and as such, is prone to being disconnected from the rest of the country. The town itself lies on the edge of the Adirondack Park Forest and Preserve, and unbeknownst to its residents has become the testing ground for a new form of bio-weaponry. Designed by a militant group, known only as the Junta, ‘Sangre’ is much more than your ordinary virus. Mimicking the symptoms of the flu it can remain undetected in its host for weeks before being triggered; the end result? Death….. Well….. Sort of….. After an ‘accidental’ leak, the townspeople find themselves in a race for survival as they slowly one by one succumb to a killer virus for which there is no cure. Shortly thereafter the few remaining survivors come to the realization that all is not as it seems; the people they thought they could trust are nowhere to be found and the people they thought were dead seem to be having trouble staying that way. To make matters worse, the citizens of the forest seem to be falling victim to the same fate as everyone else. It is up to a small band of survivors to escape the doomed area and let the rest of the world know that death….. Is coming…..
They came without warning, they came without pity, they came without prejudice. Nobody could understand at first what they were, but we know now. It didn’t take them long to infiltrate our society, to begin whittling down our numbers. It was only a matter of time before they outnumbered us. A few of us tried to create some form of resistance, but when you start becoming them it really isn’t long before you realize your defense is futile. Soon it turns to a state of panic and you find yourself trapped and at their mercy. Others tried a different approach. They fled. Disappearing into the wilderness, they desperately sought an escape from the imminent specter of death that threatened to consume them; hoping to find a place where they could not travel. Wherever you went, whenever you thought you were safe, however secure you believed your location to be, they found you. Our world leaders? The ones you turn to in times of chaos and despair? To look to for leadership when all seems lost? Where were they during this time of anarchy, this era of futility? I’ll tell you where… Gone… Perhaps they too fled, unable to even protect themselves? With their bloated sense of security and strength they probably felt themselves too powerful, too omnipotent to believe they would be overcome. To find out too late that they were the ones who truly held the power. What were they? Where did they come from? How could they be stopped? Those were the questions that every man, woman, and child asked themselves a hundred times before the unequivocal answer became apparent. They were us. Only not us, not the same, changed somehow. Mutated in a way that seemed impossible, like some monsters out of a horror movie or a video game. Some ungodly creature that destroyed everything in its path, that would not relent until every trace of humanity had been driven from the face of the earth. Zombies… That is what they are. As hard as it is for any normal person to comprehend, any person with the slightest form of intelligence to believe. Like some plague sent to wipe the world clean of its sin and corruption. To make the rich the same as the poor. To either unite humanity in an attempt to save itself, or to condemn us to a fate that no single person can ever begin to comprehend. That is what they are. What will become of us? I suppose that is for us to decide. Will we survive? Will we somehow overcome this malevolent storm that has threatened to consume us all? More importantly, will we put aside our differences in the face of this evil? Will we come together regardless of race, societal status, or creed, and unite to fight this common foe? Maybe it is too late for us all? Maybe we have been walking the path to destruction since the first man partook of the forbidden fruit, since the first Neanderthal clubbed his neighbor? Maybe we are sentenced to extinction? Maybe though worst of all, we are doomed to go on living? To continue to just survive. To live in this horror for all eternity, while one by one we loose all trace of humanity to either them or to our own minds… Anonymous
