From the author of the wildly successful debut novel Family Reunion, P. Mark DeBryan, comes a new and terrifying Apocalypse Family novel.
The South African flu had put the fear of God into the world. But the press and the government assured one and all that a revolutionary nanovaccine developed by Dr. Julian Ruegg had stopped the outbreak in its tracks.
The vaccine had stopped the flu, yes. But two weeks later a strange and deadly side effect became apparent, a side effect worse than the flu - far, far worse. Jay Brant, mother of two and ex-FBI fingerprint analyst, is trying to survive and get back to her kids as society unravels around her. Nothing matters more than getting her son Mark and his wife to safety in West Virginia, and then rescuing her daughter Auddy, who lives in South Carolina.
Jay had put her husband on a plane bound for his family reunion in Seattle, then set off on a road trip to the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. Her job requires the trip once every two weeks, and the four-hour drive and overnight stay are completely routine.
As the day unfolds, she begins to realize that this trip will be anything but routine.

Great follow up by Mark DeBryan.
I enjoyed Mark DeBrian's followup to family reunion. We got to meet Jay and experience the chaos on the East Coast.

Pretty close to being the best sequel ever!
I absolutely loved this chapter of the Bryant family story! And the narration of this book was on point! Not that the first book wasn’t narrated well, but in comparison this one was much better! I’m fully engrossed with the story line and this family’s struggle. I really enjoyed the first book because I was living in WA state when I read it, which made the story really come to life even more because I knew the places and area. So it was easy to actually see the story and the layout. Some books are set in places or areas that don’t give you a reference point or something familiar to help bring the story to life. And for me that makes it a lot harder to have that “movie in your head” playing while you’re reading it. Both of these books gave me all that and more. I have to say at first I was upset all these great characters were being killed. But after some thought I actually liked it more. The first book was very safe, no one that was all that important (and by important I mean you weren’t really given the chance to get attached to the characters that died or were killed.) So in comparison I like this approach better. I also enjoyed how in this book the reader was able to hear the thoughts and viewpoints of more characters. In the first book you only knew what people in the family and those that were practically family were thinking So it was a really nice twist. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this book I absolutely loved it! My only sadness is that now I’m dying to find out how the story ends! 😔 Hopefully I won’t have to wait too long!
