Fiend: A Novel by Peter Stenson

A Novel
by Peter Stenson
Hardcover, 304 pages

There’s more than one kind of monster.

Can you ever have too many zombie books? No. Do they have to have a twist to really capture your attention? Yep, absolutely.

And what a twist we have here. Chase Daniels finds himself coming down from a weekend drug bender and has the worst hallucination ever. Outside the window an innocent child and a dog are playing. Or, rather wrestling. In fact the child is eating the dog. Blood runs from her face as she looks at him. He really needs to get off the drugs.

But this is no dream - Something happened to the world that weekend. And it will never be the same. Run with Chase through this drug-fueled adventure of horror, heart-ache, redemption and humanity.

Think Trainspotting meets The Walking Dead. 

Not for the faint of heart, but truly exciting for us bold readers.
