Age Group: Mature Young Adult
Release Date: October 31, 2012
Time is running out and Paul’s original wish for death looms. As his skin grays and hunger becomes uncontrollable, the world burns.
Heather and Paul have fallen for each other, but with life and death barricading them apart, and the potential cure disappearing into time, they have no hope.
Paul’s hunger is all-consuming. He has to walk into the flames, join Dominic, or eat everyone he loves.
Can he save anyone, if not himself?
James Character Bio:
Everyone has heroes. Some like Spiderman, Batman, the Avengers, sure, even the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are awesome, but James’s hero is a bit closer to home. His big brother Paul. And when Dominic changes James to match Paul, a small part of James is glad – another trait he and Paul have in common.
They’re different in looks like peanut butter and jelly. James is tall and thin – a runner, while Paul is huskier like a football player. Girls like muscles and, oh man, the girls like Paul.
James’s favorite memory with his brother involves dirt biking. They rode all over the place as kids and James missed their time together. Since the escape to Idaho, James has enjoyed more time with his brother. He’s not too fond of the virus, but hunting together and fighting Dominic has made him feel like his family is on the mend.
Favorite song: Kung Fu Fighting by Carl Douglas – don’t tell anyone.
Favorite color: Since contracting the virus – red, blood red.
Nickname growing up: String bean.
