The Last Virus

By Peter Lucas - ISBN: 9781922993007

RRP: $28.95

A small group of survivors of the last virus want their lives back…

With memories of masks, lockdowns, empty supermarket shelves, a crumbled tourism industry and a depleted workforce left in its wake, the virus eventually comes to an end.

But then it wasn’t the end…

A last virus has resurfaced without warning or remorse, and in its wake creates riots over food, erratic public violence and a uniformed militia that takes the law into its own hands while the global panic ripples through an unstable society.

The last virus created the world’s desperate cry of humanity…

With nothing but destruction remaining, a small band of survivors wish for peace to build something to live for and try to put the terrible past behind them.

A life of suffering was no longer acceptable. They want something more than only surviving… yet the world has changed and the fear it will not change back grows within all who can remember what it was before the last virus appeared…

“A dystopian classic in the making as we see the worst of a society in chaos and indulge in the tale of hope and dreams… A page turner for all lovers of great imagined stories…” Colin, Indie Book reviewer
