Rectify: The four parts in Rectify series are included in this box set.
The virus CO-D4 rages across the globe with debilitating effects. Authorities, scientists and medical personnel scramble to find a cure. Those who fall victim to the virus, experience a fast and insufferable death and then they come back. Chaos erupts and the world moves to the brink of extinction until the realization that a cure is not the answer, containing the crises is. The virus is not just a pandemic, it’s a war. The battle is on, front lines are drawn and mankind holds the upper hand. Controlling the victims before they rise is the only way to stop it. But Doctor June Mannis doesn’t believe that. She sees something else in the victims … hope. She is a lone soldier in a private war that will prove to be either insanity or humanity’s turning point.
When the CO-D4 virus rages across the globe, it not only leaves behind death and destruction, it creates three types of survivors. Those who want to see the infected die, those who want to help the sick, and those who want humanity to rise above it all. In the wake of his friend and colleague’s rectification, Doctor James Ung is one of those who wants the best of humanity. His struggle to help others becomes increasingly difficult by the day as the rate of infected grows. Major Tom Leland wants to kill all those with CO-D4 until he meets June Mannis. Her death opens his eyes to it all and he begins to see the virus differently. He forms an unlikely friendship with James Ung. The two of them fight to keep humanity together while not letting June Mannis’ work be in vain. The untested cure is on the horizon. Will mankind be able to hold on that long? If that is, the cure actually works.
The CO-D4 virus rages the globe, leaving weary survivors and infected who roam the streets. In the aftermath of the pandemic, Doctor James Ung finds himself in a new type of world. A quiet one. Almost as if everything is put on pause. The global distribution of the vaccine breeds a different outcome other than hope. Those who receive it fall into a deep coma. Ung along with Major Tom find an ally in Ella Hoffman, a displaced survivor from another camp. Time is running out and they are clueless as to what will happen when the inoculated survivors wake. Together with a few others, they make plans flee the city to find a safer place to live. That is if a safe place even exists.
It is not a war that mankind ever expects to face – one against the undead. The battle has begun. After the rescue attempt of Sanctum, James Ung and the others make their way to Moundsville, West Virginia, where Clay Owens leads a group of survivors. They make a long term sanctuary our of an old prison. It is to be home, instead, they face using the prison as a fortress. Hope burns out quickly when they learn the world is far worse and the CO-D4 virus has only begun its evolution of humanity.
“Usually weekday nights saw at most five patients during the course of the shift, but on this one, she had five at one time. All of them different things.
A breathing problem, kidney stones, banged up knees, possible cardiac and a drug addict, he claimed he flu and coughed so hard he threw out his back, when he was really looking for a way to get a fix as he fought, what the charge nurse described as symptoms of withdrawal.
“Is it a full moon,” June asked looking at the computer. “Someone tell me it’s a full moon.”
“It’s not,” a nurse, Patrick said. “Room six.” He handed her a chart. “Thirty-three year old male, complaining of chest tightness.”
“Slightly abnormal rhythm.” He showed her the EKG strip. “Waiting on the chest x-ray and labs now.”
“His O2 Sat.”
“Normal. There is a family history of pericarditis.”
“Okay, thanks,” June took the chart and headed toward room six. The wife of the patient in room five hurried out to stop June.
“We’ve been waiting an hour. My husband is in pain,” the woman said.”
