Ally Carson reluctantly returns home after receiving a panicked call about her parents death. Two days later she's standing in a town she swore she'd never come back to. What Ally doesn't realize is she just entered into a parasitic war zone where the dead will soon out number the living. The warning on the welcome sign should have been a red flag. Don't eat the meat. Don't drink the water. Don't get sick. Thank God she's a vegetarian.  
One sentence synopsis: Tainted meat turns a small farming town into a parasitic zombie war zone only a vegetarian can handle.  
  Highest rating in horror so far #197

*Rated R for  strong language, a few sexual situations and murder involving zombies. Nothing too bad if you watch rated R movies.   
*I will do my best to post a new chapter every Monday so make sure to follow and add the book so you can get notified. 
     It comes in five stages.
      Stage one: Contamination. Don't eat the meat. Don't drink the water.  
      Stage two: Black mouth. It's like cotton mouth, only your teeth fall out of your head and you mouth turns black. 
      Stage three: Coma. Think of this as a nice vacation from puking your guts out.  
      Stage four: Death. Sadly, for most people, this stage doesn't come soon enough. 
      Stage five: Reanimation. Or the "Ah, hell no!" stage.

Can you also put a sexual violence trigger warning? I haven't seen any ACTUAL  descriptions of it, but I've read stuff so far that alludes to r*ape. You probably don't feel the same as I do, but even the implication of a non-consensual sexual situation triggers me in an extremely negative way.

@K_E_Francis I had to borrow them but I plan on buying them when I get the chance. I'm excited to get into this story that you have written here, I mean by the title alone, I'm excited.

Walking Dead comic reader :D I'm not finished yet, I mean caught up on them, I stopped not long after Negan's arrival in Alexandria and I planned on reading from the start again.
