In the heart of Atlanta, a virus has escaped the CDC and transformed most of the population of the southeastern US into homicidal cannibals. As society rapidly crumbles under the hordes of infected, three people—Ethan, a Memphis police officer; Cade, a former IDF sharpshooter; and Brandt, a lieutenant in the US Marines—band together against the oncoming crush of death and terror.
As they hole up in a safe house in Mississippi, others join them in their bid for survival. When an attack of the infected forces them to flee, they encounter more danger than they bargained for. And one man’s desperate search for answers in Memphis uncovers information that heralds a horrific possibility that there may be more to the virus than first suspected.
Jessica Meigs is the author of The Becoming, a post-apocalyptic thriller series that follows a group of people trying to survive a massive viral outbreak in the southeastern United States. After gaining notoriety for having written the series on a variety of BlackBerry smartphones, she self-published two novellas that now make up part of the first book in the series. In April 2011, she accepted a deal with Permuted Press to publish The Becoming as a series of novels. The first of the series, entitled The Becoming, was released in November 2011, and was named one of Barnes & Noble’s Best Zombie Fiction Releases of the Decade by reviewer Paul Goat Allen. An expanded edition of the series was re-released beginning in 2020.
In 2019, Jessica began self-publishing again, this time exploring a new universe with The Unnaturals Series, in which a group of government-employed agents discover that the wheels of the Biblical apocalypse are in motion…and they’re the only ones who can stop it.
Jessica lives in semi-obscurity in Demopolis, Alabama. When she’s not writing, she works full time as an editor, copyeditor, and proofreader. She can be found on a variety of social media platforms and on her website at www.jessicameigs.com.
