OVERVIEW

All three Novellas of the Peeling series.

TODAY THE WORLD GOT SICK...
The Peeling is a series of novellas set in a world ravaged by a deadly plague. Each book follows the individual story of one of the survivors of this horrible new existence. They can be enjoyed as standalone tales or as part of a larger, overall narrative.
---------------------------------------
BOOK 1: Jeremy's Choice

Being a security guard at a news station meant Jeremy found out about the peeling before anybody else. But that didn't prevent the deadly, unknown virus from infecting his wife. After years of neglect, unfaithfulness, and lies, is it finally time for Jeremy to do right by the woman he loves? Or is it too late?
---------------------------------------------------
BOOK 2: The Stadium

Brett went to the football stadium for safety. They all did. But the deadly, flesh-eating virus, The Peeling, doesn't care about walls. It isn't long before the stadium starts to look less like a refuge and more like a prison.
---------------------------------------------------
BOOK 3: Warriors

With barely a soul alive, Sergeant Parker and his squad scour the land, looking for survivors, but will they succeed only in finding more nightmares?
---------------------------------------------------
BONUS CONTENT - Also includes the prequel story: The Peeling Of Samuel Lloyd Collins

REVIEW

I was looking forward to reading this book, and I wasn’t disappointed in the least. Although the writing needs a little editing, I enjoyed this story immensely. Each story is told from a different point of view, the one more frightening than the other. The fear, pain, and tension of the characters as they are devoured by the peeling disease is palpable. From the cheating security guard, the people trapped in the stadium, to the British Army attempting to overtake a barricaded supermarket with force, the suspense in this quick read is relentless.  I especially enjoyed the third story, as the non-stop explosive action had me turning the pages in a frenzy. This is the first time I’ve read anything by this author, but it won’t be the last. Any and all fans of writers such as Stephen King and Richard Laymon should definitely add “The Peeling Trilogy” to their to-be-read lists.
