Code of Reanimation - Book Tour


Spin-off of the Father of Contention series

Paranormal Thriller, Science Fiction, Horror

Date Published: 11-14-2023


Freedom is a state of mind.

Brigita Nowak has only ever wanted one thing—her freedom. Labelled psychotic and committed to a mental institution at seventeen, she missed the chance of a “normal” life. She never held a job, owned her own place, or experienced love. Until now.

After awakening sprawled on the common room floor—the hospital in ruins, the staff and patients missing—she realizes it’s her chance to escape. Seeking sanctuary with her sister, she meets “the boyfriend” Renner Scholz, a vile yet brilliant geneticist. He has developed a bioweapon, the Code of Reanimation, destined to destroy the world. Or so Brigita believes. She’s been seeing zombie hallucinations as of late, a sure premonition of the highly contagious bioweapon getting out of hand. Why the connection? Because the bioweapon reanimates dead organisms into bloodthirsty killing machines.

Brigita has typically experienced death-based hallucinations, blamed on her mental illness. She, however, always felt they were psychic premonitions. Convinced that Renner intends to release the bioweapon at a public fundraising event, she teams up with a handsome love interest to thwart the catastrophe. But, as Brigita’s visions kick into hyperdrive and timelines blur, she must determine which events are based on reality or delusional constructs of her subconscious mind...

before it’s too late.

Excerpt from "Code of Reanimation"

Brigita’s blood boiled. Never had she detested someone so strongly—especially in such a short time. They travelled the rest of the distance in heated silence. After Renner decelerated in front of the apartment building, Brigita burst out of the car and dashed up the stairs, ecstatic to be free of his company… but he had other plans. He parked the car and killed the engine.

Drawing uncomfortably close behind her as she fumbled with the lock, he pushed her inside the instant the door opened. After stepping inside, he locked the door behind them. 

“Where’s your medication?” he demanded, face grim, immovable. 

Fear caused the hairs on her arms to stand on end. “I was planning on taking it at night. It makes me groggy,” she stammered. 

“You’re taking it now.” 

“But I don’t want to!”

“Brigita, I can stay here all day, if you’d like. I won’t leave until you oblige.” 

Was he telling the truth? If she took her dose, would he leave? Or would he stay, her rendered weak and controllable by the medication? 

After considerable thought, she went to the bathroom and returned with her pill bottle. Renner read the label, nodded, then poured two pills from the container onto his palm. Passing them to Brigita, she dry-swallowed them, acquiescing to another day of being weakened against the evil forces, unable to see them and protect her or Milena from their tricks. 

Done taking her meds, she waited for Renner to leave, but he plunked down on the living room sofa, crossed his long, athletic legs on the coffee table, and clicked on the television.

Panic fluttered in her chest like a wild bird trapped in an attic. Escaping to the spare bedroom, she barricaded the door with a wooden bookcase. A sensation washed over her—déjà vu—yet it wasn’t her, but a bruised and beaten Milena barricading the door in a parallel situation. Foreshadowing? Strangely, this felt like it had already come to pass. Which made no sense, but her mind had grown fuzzy as grogginess swiftly crept in. The meds doing their job.

Would she be safe inside her room until Milena returned from work? She sure hoped so because her eyes were refusing to stay open, leaving her defenseless.
