Bestselling and award-winning authors serve as eyewitnesses to the apocalyptic Vampire Wars in this far-reaching chronicle of pandemic horrors.
The plague begins silently during a scientific expedition in Antarctica. The melting ice releases a millennia-old virus, which spreads, poisoning the air we breathe and triggering long-dormant genes in the “junk DNA” of the human populace. It is the gene that once created the vampire—the very biological origin of what we came to believe, throughout recorded history, was only a legend.
Now that the virus has been unleashed, people around the world are changing. The danger level is incalculable. The cure is unknown. And the diseased are among us, hiding in plain sight, waiting to hunt. From the sudden contagion of patient zero to the terrifying worldwide battle between us and “the others,” the Vampire Wars are just beginning.
Conceived by New York Times–bestselling and Bram Stoker Award–winning author Jonathan Maberry, V-Wars features “frontline” reports from various “hot zones” across the globe. Joining Maberry are notable contributors including Nancy Holder, Yvonne Navarro, James A. Moore, Gregory Frost, John Everson, Keith R. A. DeCandido, and Scott Nicholson. The result is a frighteningly authentic compendium of intertwining tales that creates a unique document of mankind’s response to this sudden, cataclysmic threat to humanity.
