“Kai’s Journey” is a story about a young man, set ten years in the future. Kai has spent those years fighting for survival and trying to find a way rid the world of the disease his father created.. His father was a military scientist charged with the task of perfecting a formula that would create a superior breed of soldiers. Kai’s father accidentally created a race of zombies. Like a virus, it soon spreads to the entire world, unleashing a period of unsurpassed chaos and conflict.
In the midst of this turmoil, Kai comes across a young woman named Clover, who is part of a clan traveling across the United States to try to find what is left of humanity. Clover is a part of a clan of werewolves who can turn at will but aren’t blood thirsty savages as depicted in general history. .
Along the way Kai and Clover come across stragglers who join with the group as they journey across the upper part of what used to be known as North America.
One night while Kai and Clover were watching a meteor shower they meet a group totally out of this world. Kai and Clover begin a heroic journey, fueled by the increasingly dim hope that somehow, the human race will have a chance to start over.
Congratulations to author Massimo Marino whose post-apocalyptic novel Daimones
has been awarded the 2012 PRG Reviewer’s Choice in Science Fiction by the Paranormal Romance Guild.
Dan and his family awake one day in a world where everyone is dead but nothing points to a cause. Initial searches for survivors yield nothing and, in panic, the family turns their house into a stronghold. Eventually, they find Laura, a survivor who wins their hearts…and leads Dan to temptation. Laura describes her panic encounter with strange entities which Dan recognizes in his childhood hallucinations. He forces himself to find and confront them: An older power controls the fate of men.
A few selected will face the ultimate quest: a painful genetic transformation and work toward the rebirth of a new human race, or oblivion and death in isolation.
Reviewer Natasha Slight of Simply Sensational Book Fanatics says, “The scenes the author has created made me laugh, made me feel sad, and had me questioning myself if I were put in that same position.”
Daimones is available from Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes&Noble.
