The Michaluk Virus has escaped the CDC, and its effects are widespread and devastating. Most of the population of the southeastern United States have become homicidal cannibals. As society rapidly crumbles under the hordes of infected, three people--Ethan, a Memphis police officer; Cade, his best friend; and Brandt, a lieutenant in the US Marines--band together against the oncoming crush of death. As members of the group succumb to the escalating dangers on their path, new alliances form, new loves develop, and old friendships crumble. This edition features the first three books in The Becoming series.
