Wayward Pines: Aberration (Kindle Worlds Novella)
Everything is not perfect in the town of Wayward Pines. Theresa Burke is concerned about how her 11-year-old son Ben is being brainwashed in the repressive schools, but the crisis grows far worse when Ben is struck down by a virulent form of meningitis. As he lies in a deep coma, feverish, delirious, his mind is open to an entirely different sort of enemy. For outside the electrified fences of the last town on Earth are monstrous inhuman aberrations, and Ben's sickness makes him vulnerable to a dangerous and terrifying link with an outcast among the aberrations. The two share a mind and body, neither understanding—with disastrous consequences.
