Adventure / Action

Blurb

There were two things that brought the world to its knees. First the colours. Then the insanity.

Prologue

The colour was the beginning of everything.

When it had started there had been whispers among people about the colour, about what it did to those who got infected. In hushed tones and trembling voices, the fear set in, and within a matter of weeks the disease became an epidemic.

People had run, desperation and terror fuelling their actions. They foolishly thought they could outrun the disease like terrified mice. But it wasn’t enough. Most had cornered themselves, weeded themselves out. They had fought the unknown, resisted for as long as they could; but as always, they were never strong enough.

They acted as though the infection was like a spoiled cat that did not catch its own food, but instead had it served on a platter.

That was a mistake that cost far too many lives.

It didn’t matter who people were before they were infected, whether they had been saints or criminals, they all changed when the disease had fully taken them over. They became brutal and sadistic, eager to terminate those who were still healthy, and change them too. The disease didn’t discriminate. It just infected.

Survivors kept on running, pushing to find a safe place to stay for a night but the places to hide were rapidly becoming limited. The healthy people were becoming far too few, and the number of infected far too large.

Soon they would run out of places to flee and they’d be infected too.

There is no escape from the disease.

Ginger: I like the idea behind this; the idea and story itself are great, However, I'm finding typos periodically and some of the sentences could be worded a bit more clearly. You might want to 'show' a little more than you 'tell,'

NancyRichFoster: Wow! This is a blow you away story in every sense of the word. kudos to the author for a story about a killer virus caused by seeing colors, mad scientists, torture, friends, sacrifice and death. I read it in less then a day.

NancyRichFoster: This second book of the Anmah Series was as awesome as the first story, I disagree with spare runner. The names were ordinary names with different spellings, which I for one loved. I am now going to read the third book in this amazingly awesome story!

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real.Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.
