Taji's Syndrome

It began with six innocent children—and the terror they would bring to life ...

A human error, an unreported lab accident. Six pregnant women, six unknown children spreading a plague far deadlier than any doctors have ever seen before—a horror that splits lovers and friends, parents and children. The bravest and brightest men and women in medicine are fighting to stem the deadly tide. Their only hope for a cure lies with the precious few who have lived through the onslaught.

But the survivors of Taji’s Syndrome have mysteriously disappeared—and the tasks facing the champions of humanity are far greater than anyone could have imagined ...

HARPER ROSS: He had seen it destroy his son and tear apart his family. Now he is obsessed with hunting down the carriers of the disease—and terrified by the answers he finds.

MAXIMILLIAN KLAUSEN: He was the old-fashioned doctor who had lost everyone he ever loved to the syndrome. Now he’s fighting to find its cure—and he’s running out of time.

IRENE CHANNING: She was the strong, beautiful woman who was the first known survivor of Taji’s Syndrome—and the first to discover the bizarre and powerful changes it had left behind.

JEFF TAJI: He must discover the cause of the plague and stop it. But then he faces an even more baffling mystery . . . what is happening to the survivors? ...
