How far would you go for love when all you love is DEAD?
Six months after the Necro Rabies pandemic turned the world into hordes of rabid undead known as “Cujos,” 21-year-old Rhonda Driscoll discovers her zombified fiancé, Brad, in her old hometown. Fearing that her Marine Colonel father will kill undead Brad, Rhonda flees, taking a road-trip with Brad in tow in hopes of starting a new life in a frightening and uncertain world complicated by numerous perils, pure horror, and unconditional love.
RABID HEART author Jeremy Wagner says, “I had a solid draft of RABID HEART cooling for a while as I worked on some other projects for a couple years. Once I came back to revise and polish RABID HEART, I fell hard for it all over again and knew I had something special. I love f-ed up stories… I write f-ed up things.”
RABID HEART is available to pre-order from all good book outlets.
Wagner’s novel, The Armageddon Chord, peaked at #4 on Barnes & Noble’s Top 10 paperback Bestseller List and peaked at #9 on Barnes & Noble’s Top 100 overall Bestseller List in the first week of release. The novel also earned a Hiram Award, a first-round ballot Stoker Award Nomination, and received critical acclaim in Publisher’s Weekly and Rolling Stone, among many other worldwide media outlets.
Praise for RABID HEART:
“Zombies and the end of days don’t stand a chance against true love. Jeremy Wagner’s RABID HEART is good, clean apocalyptic fun.”
– Alma Katsu, author of The Hunger
“Just when you think you’ve heard every love story, along comes RABID HEART. My man Jeremy Wagner proves once again he’s as much of a wild man with words as he is with his guitar. This book is sick and sweet, and I say that with respect!”
– Peter Blauner, NY Times bestselling author of The Intruder and Sunrise Highway
