Day by day The Fever grew stronger, surging across boundaries in its relentless assault on humanity. The news pouring out across the airwaves turned more shocking by the hour. Hospitals had started closing their doors. The dead and dying littered the landscape.

The tiny group stranded on Portsmouth Island listened as the horror unfolded. They had no where to run, and no where to hide. The struggle to survive had taken on a new meaning. The Fever promised an eventual death. Something else had come to The Island though, something wicked and hungry.

As if life wasn’t complicated enough, a stranger arrived in an odd little boat and brought with him, both hope and fear. No one knew the man was sick. No one knew he had a fever.

To save him, William Hill would have to violate the travel ban. To save himself, he would have to face down an indescribable evil.

  • Terrific!

    From Idjster
    I have read this series a number of times, and even bought it again when it came out as a combined edition, because it is just that good! The author writes well and keeps things moving despite the need for a certain amount of descriptive text (about boats, sailing, and so on) which in no way harms the tale. The protagonist is someone likeable and intelligent but just an 'everyman',no macho superhero here. New twists come up with enough frequency to make a reader want more and there's a real sense of disappointment when the story ends. More! Bring us more!

    From Anniemarie1950
    More, please! Aside from the aggravating boat details, the story was engaging with characters as varied and interesting as they were believable. My four star rating is indicative of my chaffing at all the needless boating details as well as the disappointing conclusion of part three. We need more, please!
  • The Island by Michael Stark

    From DondertheClown
    This book is reminiscent of early Stephen King works. It tells of today's world overturned by an aggressive and ever-evolving virus. A mortality rate varying from 30% to 60% is quickly overturning society. The President of the USA has imposed a travel ban and threatens to back it up with the National Guard shooting transgressors. This is an enjoyable read. It grabs your interest on page one and maintains it until the end.

    The writing and plot great, making a few chapters into a book? Wish I had a way too weed out this type of work, I find it annoying!
  • The Island

    From Riddlestix
    Great book! The story had me thinking of the Stand by Stephen King. The second book is better than the first and I can't wait to read the rest, but don't want the novel to end . A well deserved top rating for this fantasy/apocalyptic/horror. I would like to learn more about the hierarchy of the "goblins". Keep it up....what was that over by my shed? A dark shadow?Hmmm, better go check it out. I left my Saint Gabe's medal hanging on my rear view mirror... Lol

    This is excellent stuff. The plot grabs and twists and the story reminds me of something Stephen King would come up with. Can't wait for more!
