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.”
