Day 94 wins the vote of the LRC's Best Sci-Fi/Futuristic book of 2009. Come check out the book on my website: www.dm-slate.com
In the wake of a large meteor collision, a fast-spreading disease epidemic is unleashed upon rural Colorado. Joslin, Grant and their two young children find themselves barricaded within their home as the city is quarantined and the fight for survival begins; battling an airborne disease, lack of electricity and running water, starvation, frigid Colorado winter temperatures and worst of all morphs. The family embarks on a journey that tests their strength, sanity and conviction to live.
As the morphs, carriers of the disease, become more numerous and aggressive, Joslin and Grant realize they’ll have to defend their home to protect their children. As each strand of hope frays away, the risks they must take in order to survive grow larger - until at last, Grant is attacked by a morph. Knowing he’s been infected, Grant leaves his family to fend for themselves.
Just when Joslin thinks things can’t get worse, her morphed husband returns to their home on day 94. Crazed and delusional, Grant is determined to get into the house. Joslin’s unwavering desire to save her children drives the assault, knowing it may cost her life in order to stop her husband, Grant.
