Summary

They fight. They live. They rot.

Eight years ago, an infection hit London, before spreading outwards. Ninety percent of the population was either contained by the military, trampled during the riots, or infected by the disease.

A disease that came to be known as The Rot.

Colin Bolton survived the incident, but not without losing everything he held dear to him - his life, his love, and his humanity.

Now, he's living at a farmhouse, acting as a bodyguard for a new surrogate family. Life is stable. He's making do. He’s surviving. That is...until a vagrant scavenger comes knocking at the door, desperate for food and water.

An encounter that will spin Colin’s life into chaos once more, bringing him face to face with a murderous family, the dead and the dying, and the failures of his past.

They Rot is the first book in a brutal new series of post-apocalyptia set in Great Britain. It’s brought to you by Willcocks and Kondor, two of the groundbreaking authors behind the iTunes chart-busting podcast, The Other Stories, and the story studio, Hawk & Cleaver - a digital story studio bringing you the best new stories to watch, read, sniff, and absorb.

the human experience

I picked this up because I'm a huge fan of Hawk & Cleaver. At first I thought this was going to just be another zombie series. maybe in some cases it is.
there is strong writing and character development as I have come to expect.
This is very much in the same vain as the walking dead. much better though. it's about the people not the pathogens or virus.
it's about the human experience. how we as a species deal with the incredible stresses.
