The Best Fiction You Can Find on Kindle

Published: February 27, 2014

From unbelieveable to "it could happen to us", this is a list of books that can be found on Kindle.  Zombie apocolypse, flu outbreaks, people with amazing abilities not found in our world.  Put yourself in their shoes.  How would you react?  How would you find a way to carry on?

  1. The Flu by Jacqueline Druga

    http://www.amazon.com/The-Flu-A-Novel-Outbreak-ebook/dp/B00658MGTO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1393523468&sr=8-1&keywords=The+Flu+%28A+Novel+of+the+Outbreak%29

     

    Through the centuries, the world has had epedemics and pandemics that came and went.  Either not seen in many years or not at all and then gone as fast as they arrived, leaving millions dead.  In this day and age, it's difficult to envision this happening anywhere in the developed world.  But what if it did?  And what if there was only one town in all of Ohio that was immune to its effects?

  2. No Easy Hope (Surviving the Dead) by James Cook

    http://www.amazon.com/No-Easy-Hope-Surviving-Dead-ebook/dp/B0064VVR0Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1393524016&sr=8-1&keywords=No+Easy+Hope

    Usually living dead books leave the characters with no real idea about the virus.  This one does and doesn't.  The characters aren't in the dark; they do get to know where and some of why.  I'm hoping the "why" part is answered in the next books in this series.  This isn't the normal outbreak story, though.  Yes, it involves the military, but in a different way.

  3. Jenny Pox by J.L. Bryan

    http://www.amazon.com/Jenny-Pox-Paranormals-Book-1-ebook/dp/B003X9775G/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1393524249&sr=8-3&keywords=jenny+pox

     

    Can you imagine living a life where you could never touch another living thing?  You can't hug your parents, you can't kiss anyone, you can't even pet your cat.  Jenny has been this way her entire life.  Any living thing she touches gets infected with a deadly pox.  She's the outcast at her school, alone, no friends.  Until she meets the one person she CAN touch. 

Out of these three books, The Flu is the best although I hold a place for No Easy Hope, as I really like zombie books.  The Flu, though, is more frightening to me because that is something I can see happening.  We have had N1H1 and a slew of other viruses in these last ten years.  They've gotten them under control, but will they always be able to do that??
