It uses your DNA against you.

It knows no mercy, and feels no pain.

As the old world burns, only one truth remains.


It's the middle of the night. The city's in total blackout. As the last cell tower fails, Lucy gets a desperate warning.

Worse is coming.

In less than twenty four hours, mass looting will begin. Panic will quickly follow. Then violence. Technology has failed across the globe, and a disastrous chain reaction has begun. But as the people of San Francisco sleep, they have no idea what's about to happen. Lucy must seize her chance to get ahead.

As the last bytes of data vanish into the ether, the old world will be lost. In its wake, billions of citizens will be stranded in defunct cities, unable to communicate, or coordinate. For the first time in millennia, our species will be truly vulnerable.

That's when the pandemic hits.

They called it D4. It's not an enemy you can fight. It's a process. We've never seen anything like it. And it's just the beginning...

A gripping dystopian page-turner, with a whole new take on the pandemic genre. Welcome to the world of Convulsive.

***** The Convulsive series is a multi award-winning thriller from science fiction author Marcus Martin. It is the culmination of years of research, featuring insights from experts in genetic engineering, evolutionary biology, and disease outbreak control. The author personally collaborated with specialists from the WHO, the CSER, the UN, and laboratories across the globe. Inspired by cutting edge science, and first-hand accounts from outbreak responders, the Convulsive series takes pandemic fiction to the next level. Prepare yourself for a spine-tingling thought experiment, unfolding through a journey of twists, grit, and sacrifice. Discover what it really means to be human, and what it takes to survive, when everything you've ever known is under attack.

Marcus Martin's writing has been hailed by fans of A. G. Riddle, Veronica Roth, Octavia E. Butler, Scott Medbury, Michael Crichton, Jack Hunt, Hugh Howey, Ursula K. Le Guin, Douglas E. Richards, Peter Cawdron, TW Piperbrook, Matthew Mather, Naomi Alderman, and more.

WARNING: This series cuts close to the bone. It contains strong language and depicts scenes of a violent nature. You will be immersed in a vivid, dystopian disaster, where your survival hangs by a thread. This is not a journey for the faint of heart. This is a fight for survival...
