H5S1: The Strain [#Wattys2016]
Jeremy Dixon had it all. A quaint countryside home, countless hours of endless fun, friends that he thought of as family, and a very likeable personality. But as he grew older and the time for him to go to university lurked, a harsh reality began to hit him; his entire life was about to be thrown on its head and everything he was so accustomed to, was about to change...in more ways than he'd ever expected.
With only a week before his estranged mother's arrival to take him to Sydney, two factory meltdowns in Sydney and Adelaide hit the local news, causing concern after the outbreak of a revolutionary biological nanotechnology, known as H5S1. As the radioactive nerve agent spreads towards Crystal Brook and the rest of the country, harsh truths are learnt, and the world which Jem thought he knew so well begins to crash before his very eyes, leaving him, and everyone else, in search of answers.
So join in on this epic journey of love, hate, war and sacrifice, and indulge in the twists and turns that await in the first book of the H5S1 trilogy, The Strain.
