Book 2 in The Raven series
Three years ago the world ended when a group of rogue scientists unleashed a virus that awakened long-dormant strands of human DNA. They awakened the bestial side of humankind: werewolves, satyrs, and all manner of bloodthirsty creatures. Within months, nearly every man, woman, or child was transformed into a monster…or slaughtered by one.
A rare survivor without special powers, Dez McClane has been fighting for his life since mankind fell, including a tense barfight that ended in a cataclysmic inferno. Dez would never have survived the battle without Iris, a woman he’s falling for but can never be with because of the monster inside her. Now Dez’s ex-girlfriend and Iris’s young daughter have been taken hostage by an even greater evil, the dominant species in this hellish new world:
The bloodthirsty creatures have transformed a four-story school building into their fortress, and they’re holding Dez’s ex-girlfriend and Iris’s young daughter captive. To save them, Dez and his friends must risk everything. They must infiltrate the vampires’ stronghold and face unspeakable terrors.
Because death awaits them in the fortress. Or something far worse.

“If you’re searching the horror horizon for a dark star, your next must-read, the silhouette you see coming your way is Jonathan Janz.”— Josh Malerman, New York Times best selling author of Bird Box
Praise for Jonathan Janz and Book 1 in the series:
“If you’re searching the horror horizon for a dark star, your next must-read, the silhouette you see coming your way is Jonathan Janz.”— Josh Malerman, New York Times best selling author of Bird Box and Malorie
“At times, the book feels closer to Lee Child than Stephen King, with its monsters indulging in car chases and bar brawls, and all of the action is perfectly controlled by Janz. It’s a fun, rapid read that should whet the reader’s appetite for the future installments that the ending hints at."— Booklist
"A perfect choice for fans of horror-sf hybrids, such as Rebecca Roanhorse’s “Sixth World” series or Josh Malerman’s “Bird Box” novels." — Library Journal
"The Raven is a melting pot of several favorite sub-genres and tropes resulting in the best possible mash-up a horror fan could even imagine."— Cemetery Dance
“Janz brings a truly original perspective on the apocalypse and monsters and does it well in such a way that, given today’s technological advances, doesn’t seem that far-fetched at all.” — Splattergeist
"Fast-paced and eminently readable, The Raven is a violent, post-apocalyptic, fantasy adventure with an intriguing premise and a likeable protagonist." — The Book Beard
"One of the best writers in modern horror to come along in the last decade. Janz is one of my new favorites." — Brian Keene
