Still Alive 2: Red Versus Green

Author(s): A.C. Thorne

Ceres had never met anyone like Liam before. It wasn’t his looks or anything physical that made him different, but was something that was impossible to see and even harder to describe. It was the way that he made her feel. 

As if a world filled with the reanimated dead wasn’t enough, a new, even more insidious threat has now reared its ugly head. They tore her away from him and made her fight for her life. Cornered and hopelessly outnumbered she was about to succumb when an unexpected ally intervened to save her life.

Ceres has now joined the resistance, literally under ground – a covert alliance known as CATO – between humans and an alien race known as the Gray. But after decades of mistrust and misinformation the alliance is on the brink of collapse. As her world becomes stranger and uncomfortably complex she focuses on a live overhead satellite image of Liam – her beacon of hope, harmony and sanity in an inhuman and insane world.

Time is running out for the survival of the human race and the odds are stacked heavily against the unstable alliance known as CATO. Can Ceres find a way to make a difference before it’s too late?

STILL ALIVE is a genre-crossing thrill ride which takes the reader from narrowly surviving a zombie outbreak to learning that the plague is just the pre-cursor to something even larger and much more sinister.

Just when solo running and gunning seems like the epitome of surviving a running-zombie infested world STILL ALIVE leads us to the cusp of hard science fiction, reinventing the zombie ‘virus’ while at the same time upgrading it to seeming plausibility.
