|About the Book|
You’re bitten. You’re scared, but feel fine. Then the people around you begin to smell sweeter. They smell tasty. You find yourself passing on steak and potatoes. Only one meal will satisfy the urge…human flesh.So you commit the ultimate sin, and you feed. Suddenly, you feel better. A week later, the urge is there again. You commit the heinous act again, and your cognizance returns. As long as you feed you can carry on “normally.”But if your moral standards keep you from feeding, the urge gets stronger. People smell sweeter. People smell tastier. After a week, you begin to twitch, and your thinking is not sound. Two weeks in, your speech is gone, your muscles atrophy, and you’re a drooling mess. If you make it three weeks, you’re just a snarling, shambling animal, driven by the instinct to feed.You have the Hunger.Survival horror meets western expansion in 1866 , as the Hutton family travels west with hopes of a new start.
