This book is written by Mira Grant who is actually award winning author Seanan McGuire.
The year is 2044, the SDCC of 2014 is 34 years behind her, but Lorelei Tutt will never forget that horrible day in San Diego. She now lives in London and was a Captain in the Coast Guard, as her father had wanted.
Lorelei Tutt was the only survivor who had at one time been inside the large dealer hall, the heart of the San Diego convention center.
It was Wednesday, preview night, and all of the dealers were busy setting up their booths. Soon thousands of Comic-Con goers would be filing in to get that special preview night swag.
Elle Riley, star of fan favorite show, "Space Crime Continuum," is being escorted across the dealer's floor to get to her panel, the first of the convention. She was walking with her handler and they were running late. Had they left earlier they would have walked through tunnels that bi-passed the hall altogether. As they approach the doors that would lead them out of the hall and into the room where the panel was to take place, all hell broke loose.
In the back of the room, Lorelie Tutt's family were setting up their space with all of their action figures and signed photos. Lorelei, who was being a teenage pain in the butt, was sent to the hotel room to get some sleep. It was her teenage attitude that saved her life. Before they were done setting up, screams started from the front of the hall.
If you've never been inside the dealers hall at the SDCC, it's huge. It is 525,701 gross square feet of contiguous exhibit space on Ground Level. Imagine this hall almost full of people wandering around the booths and huge Network and Studio areas which can take up several hundred feet each.
According to the above square footage, hearing something in the front of the room from the back of the room is almost impossible. However, when that something is blood-curdling screams, it is possible.
This story goes back and forth from Lorelie in London, 2044: to the gut wrenching SDCC dealer's floor, turned to a killing ground from a death that spreads every time another fan is bitten.
One of the best zombie books this reviewer has read since the last Shawn Chesser book "A Pound of Flesh."
If you're thinking of going to the SDCC this summer, read this book first. If you've ever been to the con, read this book because it will talk to you and say 'there but by the grace of God go I."
Enjoyable from the beginning to the end, it's a Kindle Short which is it's only flaw.
