What people are saying…

Praise for Foamers:

“A worthy addition to the canon of postapocalyptic fiction, and like the best of such books, at its heart it’s a frontier novel, brutal and exciting, celebrating individualism and self-determination.”
Tim McLoughlin, author of Heart of the Old Country

“When a screwed-up flu vaccine mutates much of humanity into mindless beasts, ‘Trust your intelligence’ becomes the leitmotif of a group of survivors. Fast-moving, violent, and vividly imagined, Foamers creates a dangerous world made disquietingly believable.”
—David Poyer, author of Tipping Point

Part of Akashic’s Kaylie Jones Books imprint.

Kade and his group of survivors find out the hard way that the end of the world is more populated than they had previously assumed. When two of his friends are captured by a former National Guard detachment in DC, Kade is forced to turn to his greatest enemy for help. But help comes at a price as seeds of distrust are sown through the group, breaking some of the strongest bonds in the family dynamic and threatening to tear the group apart. With new external threats and internal jealousy—not to mention the growing pack of foamers living on the group’s doorstep—the question becomes not just will anyone survive without scars, but will anyone survive at all?

The page-turning sequel to the Amazon #1 best-selling thriller Foamers, Strays will leave you questioning everything you think you know about surviving in the modern world.
