Product Description

Product Description

The team had been told it would be a straightforward mission: enter St. Davids, now little more than a ghost town, retrieve the target and return to base.

Trouble is, the target is a man named Victor, and it looks like somebody else got to him first.

And St. Davids is anything but a ghost town...

Shock is a novella that picks up where K.R. Griffiths' acclaimed debut Panic left off. Four further full length novels in the series Wildfire Chronicles have now been released: Psychosis (Vol 3), Mutation (Vol. 4), Trauma (Vol. 5) and the series finale Reaction (Vol. 6).

A novella sequel, Shock, was released in July 2013. A third installment, Psychosis, was released in September 2013

4.0 out of 5 stars Too short Jan. 11 2014
By Terry Licia - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I like these books but they're not really BOOKS - they are short stories! These remind me of serial stories that came out in the early 1900's in weekly papers. Some were about cowboys and Indians,
Andrew Greely for the NY Times did a long series about the Civil War complete with often intricate drawings of war ship ships, famous generals sitting around tables, battle scenes etc. The only thing lacking from Griffiths' series set in a modern Apocalyptic disaster is the graphic art. But with writing as excellent as Griffiths, who needs graphics? I just wish I had known I was buying a set of short stories instead of a nice long novel. Feels like I was cheated out of a good long read.

4.0 out of 5 stars ~~John Francis~~ Dec 7 2013
By USN Chief, Ret..VT Town - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A glimpse into the life of John Francis's past as well as his current job. A 'military' group descends by helicopter into a hellish nightmare. Death and destruction are everywhere around them.

How many will survive this battle and if they do, how will they be able to leave?

Highly recommended.
3.0 out of 5 stars Short take April 14 2016
By H. Grove (errantdreams) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
John and his group arrive at Victor’s compound using swords to fight their way through the Infected. The reasoning isn’t bad, actually: knives let the Infected get too close, while guns make enough sound that they’ll bring every Infected for miles. Oddly though, that’s pretty much the last we saw of swords.

In order for the plot to proceed as desired, one of John’s crew is required to be so stupid that I cannot imagine how anyone would even let him leave the house. He leaves the door to Victor’s bunker open and then randomly presses a button that turns out to be a really loud siren. There’s gotta be a way to send the group onward that doesn’t require so much stupidity. Long story short, John ends up on the run with our heroes. They don’t trust him; he doesn’t care about them. But they do need each other. I like the fact that trust is not won easily in this crew. Now that Michael is so seriously injured, I’m surprised that the rest of the group accommodates him so much–the group isn’t exactly tight-knit. The idea that they can survive together is tough to buy into. Jason is mentally not all there (he’s always been a little slow, but now he’s nearly unresponsive due to trauma); Rachel is wounded and traumatized and brittle; Michael is a paraplegic; and John has enough training that he’d probably be in less danger on his own.

This entry into the series is unusually short, so I don’t have much more to say about it. There is character development, but despite that some of the characters feel rather flat.
5.0 out of 5 stars Alright! Fixing to get with it now! Jan. 29 2015

I am so glad I stumbled onto K.R. Griffiths stuff. I read the book, Adrift, and was very impressed by this authors abstract imagination and the way the words just pull you on and on. Panic was great. This short novella, Shock, is but a momentum builder in preparation for the rest of the Wildfire Chronicles; setting the stage for what's to come. I read the afterword by the author and I find it amazing that he actually didn't think his writing would ever actually be read by any other than family and friends...well, Mr. Griffiths, I'm glad someone told you you different and that you have answered your calling.
A short summary of Shock: The virus that has been released by persons yet to be revealed, is spreading. It's utter chaos. The infected are humans that have been reduced to beasts. And it's spreading. This novella was written, I believe, to finish introducing the main characters; John, an ex-soldier turned "security" for a shadow company, has just entered the fray...unfortunately for him. I would highly recommend that the readers whom enjoyed Panic, to read, onto the next! ....Great job Mr. Griffiths! I am truly glad you found your purpose.
3.0 out of 5 stars This is part 2 of the Wildfire Chronicles which began ... Oct. 29 2015
By Brian Indians Fan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is part 2 of the Wildfire Chronicles which began in Volume 1 (Panic). The author has written this book because the main character of this short story (41 pages) needed a backstory. In the author's opinion, it would have disrupted the flow of books 1 and 3, so John was given his own short story.

The story itself is OK, but there's no real tie-in to the saga itself until the very end. But, it's free, so one can't complain too much.

BOTTOM LINE: A bridge to cross from books 1 to 3 of the Wildfire Chronicles saga.
