Wildfire review Lymington TimesWant to know more about Wildfire?

An unstoppable virus. Humanity’s last stand has failed.

Mad Max meets Day of the Triffids”, “Terrifyingly realistic”, “A perfect blend of science fiction, history and social commentary.”

In the aftermath of a devastating flu pandemic, a military-led relief effort is evacuating UK survivors to a mass quarantine zone on the Isle of Wight. In the political and moral vacuum that follows, refugees trade their freedom for food and a fresh start.

Riley and the others from Hurst Castle have relocated to a hotel on the clifftops of Freshwater Bay. To keep her promise she must leave the relative safety of their new home to search for Zed’s daughter on the other side of the island, witnessing first-hand the at-times brutal repression of the civilian population.

Colonel Abrahams’ investigation into the causes of the pandemic leads Zed back to the bio-weapons research facility at Porton Down to interview Ephesus, the archivist with detailed knowledge of Porton’s century-long experiments with chemical and biological agents.

After her kidnap from Osbourne House, Terra remains embedded with Briggs and the rebel group, helpless to stop their attempts to disrupt Allied reconstruction efforts. As more locals rally to the rebel cause, the prospect of civil war seems unavoidable.

If you enjoy fast-paced, post-apocalyptic stories like The Day of the Triffids, The Road, Station Eleven, The Stand, and The Atlantis Gene, you’ll love The Hurst Chronicles series.
