Plague Master: Rebel Infection- A Terrible Discovery

By H.E. Roulo

With the release of book two of the PLAGUE MASTER Series, readers get to rediscover teenager Trevor Seth. Trevor is hailed as a hero for returning with a vaccine for the zombie infection. His celebrity also makes him a dangerous threat to the powerful Founders of his homeworld. When revolution breaks out, he must discover the terrible truth about his cure…

 

Excerpt From Chapter 7 of Plague Master: Rebel Infection

A woman stumbled into the fire-lit driveway and tumbled to her knees. Her short white hair clumped with red and black blood. She wore a simple white pantsuit. Blood coated her forearms and slicked the front of her pant legs.

Elena gasped. “That’s Ambassador Grekov. We spoke at dinner.”

“Even if she’s been bitten, she’ll recover.” Cameron aimed the way she’d come, in case she was being pursued. “Sigrid, give her first aid.”

The ambassador rocked on her knees, head down.

“She has two bites on her forearm.” Sigrid remained in place and peered at the woman’s inner wrist, spying the blue bite-shaped scar. “Good, she’s inoculated. I’ll patch her up.”

“Wait! I would not.” Elena obstructed Sigrid’s path. “Ambassador Grekov?”

The ambassador rocked on her knees, head hanging, and gave no sign she heard them.

“I’ll handle it,” said Sigrid. She pushed past Elena, rifle raised, and stopped a pace from Ambassador Grekov.

The injured woman still didn’t look up. A soft green illumination suffused her skin, though the light of the flames might account for the glow.

Sigrid squared herself and shouted, “Ambassador Grekov!”

Vera Grekov raised her chin. Black drool dribbled between her teeth. She snarled with fury as the disease burned away her mind.

Vera lunged at Sigrid.

Sigrid fired. The bullet struck the base of Vera’s throat, too low to sever her spine. She embraced the space where Sigrid had been, but the mercenary had already stepped to the side. Cool, Sigrid shot again. Her bullet tore into the side of the new zombie’s head and out the back at an angle, casting white shards and blackened blood across the driveway and spattered a bush shaped like a giraffe.

The ambassador’s body toppled to the side, fingers twitching.

Cameron had turned by the second shot, flushed and bright-eyed.

“Not possible.” He wheezed, a long exhalation, and dropped his gun to claw at the bite on his back. Already, black blood oozed from the inflamed wound and dribbled through the last shreds of silk. “This can’t be!”

Sigrid stared at him and turned to Trevor, gun gripped between both hands. She didn’t seem able to put the question into words.

“He’s changing,” Trevor confirmed out loud. “The inoculation didn’t work.”

Kill Switch Chilling Chat: 10 Quick Questions with Chantal Boudreau

May 24, 2019 at 5:07 pm (writing)

HorrorAddicts.net

KSssALTChantal Boudreau is a speculative fiction writer from Sambro, Nova Scotia with a focus in horror and fantasy. She has published in Canada in the anthologies Tesseracts 20, Dead Chantal BoudreauNorth, Clockwork Canada, and Chillers from the Rock, amongst others.  Outside of Canada, she has published more than fifty stories.

1.) How old were you when you first discovered horror? 

I was aware of horror from a young age.  I always enjoyed scary stories as a child, and I remember watching Tales of the Unexpected and reading horror comics when I was still in elementary school.  I started reading my sister’s horror novels as a pre-teen, which is also when I got to first see the original Dawn of the Dead.  I was hooked from then on.

2.) What author has influenced you most?

I can’t say it was one author.  When it comes to horror it would be a…

Book Review: Twerk by Isobel Blackthorn

Twerk by Isobel Blackthorn

Reviewed by Chantal Boudreau

When this title came up on the review list, I was more than a little intrigued.  Adding sexy to horror can make for an interesting mix.

I have to be honest–in the past when I’ve read horror with an erotic element, it tends to be on the vulgar side without stylistic sophistication, so I was pleased to see a writing style with this story that exceeded my expectations (Although it wasn’t exactly delicate in its approach and some of the “terminology” and metaphors made me chuckle.) It captures the pole dancing experience in great detail, giving it a sense of being tangible. It also carries the perspective over into the realm of social media–a reflection of real life.

I appreciated the descriptive imagery, covering multiple senses. It allows for a freer transition from the hot physicality of lust to the cold reality…

Dystopia from the Rock – A “Rock”ing Success!

February 21, 2019 at 2:57 pm (Links, Reviews, writing) (, , , , , )

 

The latest anthology offering from Engen Books, Dystopia from the Rock, is now available.  You can find it on Amazon (Amazon.ca here in Canada) and it has already achieved best-selling status in sci-fi rankings. My story in this anthology, “Cash Grab,” is my second appearance in a “…from the Rock” anthology – I also have a story in Chillers from the Rock, “Territory” – and I have submitted to their latest call (fingers crossed.)  Engen has been a strong supporter of genre writers in Atlantic Canada and their anthologies feature a variety of authors, both new and established.  I highly recommend checking out this book, with all its local charm and flare, and their other offerings as well.

But don’t just take my word (I’m biased, of course.)  Here’s an objective review that also supports what I’ve been saying: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrSwIjnJLFI&t=9s
