Wanderers by Chuck Wendig

" What an amazingly cool friggin' novel! It's a homage to the Stand, sure, but what stands out here is how Wendig captures our current times with horrifying accuracy. The question: what would cause our fractured society to break? A mysterious flock of sleepwalkers? A new disease? An advanced, and possibly nefarious, AI? The plot hurdles along, and Wendig is such an engaging writer, these 800 pages fly right by! Loved it! "

Shana wakes up one morning to discover her little sister in the grip of a strange malady. She appears to be sleepwalking. She cannot talk and cannot be woken up. And she is heading with inexorable determination to a destination that only she knows. But Shana and her sister are not alone. Soon they are joined by a flock of sleepwalkers from across America, on the same mysterious journey. And like Shana, there are other “shepherds” who follow the flock to protect their friends and family on the long dark road ahead.

For as the sleepwalking phenomenon awakens terror and violence in America, the real danger may not be the epidemic but the fear of it. With society collapsing all around them—and an ultraviolent militia threatening to exterminate them—the fate of the sleepwalkers depends on unraveling the mystery behind the epidemic. The terrifying secret will either tear the nation apart—or bring the survivors together to remake a shattered world.
