Survivor Song

(1 customer review)

£8.99

When it happens, it happens quickly. New England is locked down, a strict curfew the only way to stem the wildfire spread of a rabies-like virus.

The hospitals cannot cope with the infected, as the pathogen’s ferociously quick incubation period overwhelms the state. The veneer of civilisation is breaking down as people live in fear of everyone around them. Staying inside is the only way to keep safe.

But paediatrician Ramola Sherman can’t stay safe, when her friend Natalie calls – her husband is dead, she’s eight months pregnant, and she’s been bitten. She is thrust into a desperate race to bring Natalie and her unborn child to a hospital, to try and save both their lives. Their once familiar home has becoming a violent and strange place, twisted in to a barely recognisable landscape.

What should have been a simple, joyous journey becomes a brutal trial.

  1. Vicky

    I put off reading this book for a long time because of COVID and the timing of when it came out, but I’m glad I finally bit the bullet and read it. Survivor Song is about the painful near-misses and almost-hads of catastrophe. It doesn’t have the endless boredom and constant dread of the real pandemic, but it covers only a brief period of times. The writing, as always with Paul Tremblay, is visceral and there’s a sense of dread throughout the novel that leaves you feeling any terrible thing could happen. I liked the brief crossover of characters from Devil’s Rock — a nice Easter egg for Tremblay fans. This book will break your heart.
