For nine years, Dr. Claire Lyle has been developing a pathogen that can potentially kill a whole nation. However, her new superior, General Murry, wanted it destroyed. All of her hard work and sacrifices will go to waste. Though, it won’t end there. Another high-ranking general gave her an option — destroy it or sell it and lie about its destruction. It’s as if the future of humanity is now at Claire’s hand.
Claire’s Apocalypse is a short zombie-horror/science-fiction novel written by K.T. Rose. The story is not far from reality. We’ve already heard about scientists and leaders who conspired to create a deadly virus for their evil plans — as a weapon to bring down their enemies or to control the world.
For such a short story, the author got me hooked. But, whatever happens after the book’s conclusion is now in my own imagination. I honestly wish that there’s a backstory and continuation in the future because I’m so curious about everything — Claire’s family, Hopper’s past, is there a cure, etc.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars. It’s scary. It’s tragic. And well-told.
