About the Book:
When Chris and Sarah bought an abandoned library to renovate and live in, they expected to be on the ground floor of the revival of Detroit. But unbeknownst to them, the city is about to fall. The devastation begins with a single woman who mysteriously tears off her clothing and starts walking the perimeter of an empty lot. Within minutes, hundreds of disparate people inexplicably form a giant human circle that slowly revolves like a hurricane of flesh. They twitch and spasm, contorting their naked bodies in a primordial death dance. They’re oblivious to everything, even the unfortunate souls who fall beneath their feet.
Bewildered citizens and authorities are desperate to know what’s causing the bizarre event… at least until it starts to rain.
Chris and Sarah abruptly find themselves trapped in a forsaken city. To survive, they must evade the horrifying illness, find food and shelter in a suddenly primitive world… and have a battle plan for when the circle stops spinning…

Wow! This is the kind of horror story that once you start reading it, you cannot stop until you get to the end. You have to know what happens to the people in it. Chris and Sarah are stuck in a horrible situation and have to find a way to live even though it seems impossible. No one is able to help them, there is no one to explain why or when the horror will be over. What are they going to do? I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for the purpose of a review and all opinions are mine.
