Teaser Tuesday (69): ARV-3 by Cameo Renae

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser is from ARV-3 by Cameo Renae. I've been dying to read a good zombie story for the longest time and this one fit the bill! While I've gotten to a bit of a lull in reading, ARV-3 is pretty action packed with some really creepy zombie-like creatures. Actually, the only reason I found my attention slipping was because it reminds me a lot of The Weepers by Susanne Winnacker (my review). If you enjoyed The Weepers I suggest running to get a copy of ARV-3 immediately.

His face lit up, and the largest smile grew on his face as he dusted off one particular  book.

"What is it, Charlie?" I asked.

"Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling," he breathed with a wide grin.

Well, I'd shoot you if you were bitten," he said with a raised eyebrow.

"Don't you dare," I huffed.

"Why not?" he asked shrugging his shoulders.

"Because I've seen you miss a few shots at close range. I'd like a clean shot. One shot. And, I'd like to die with all my limbs intact.

Synopsis of ARV-3:

The beginning of the end. The Apocalypse.

A nuclear fallout wiped out every living thing on the planet, except for a few thousand of us who took shelter in underground bunkers across the globe. Now, after thirteen long years, we were finally able to return to the topside to begin to rebuild.

We thought we were alone. We were never more wrong.

Before the fallout, scientists had worked on creating an anti-radiation vaccine (ARV). The first two attempts failed, but despite the incomplete tests and results, the government approved and distributed the third serum to the masses in an effort to aid those who had no shelter.

It worked, keeping those who remained on the topside alive, but it also altered and mutated them. This new and infectious threat had completely outnumbered us. Now, we not only had to rebuild our planet. We would have to fight for it.

My name is Abigail Park. I’m seventeen, and this is my story.
