book cover

A rapidly mutating flu virus is accidentally released from a U.S. military facility and wipes out 99 and 44/100 percent of the world's population, thus setting the stage for an apocalyptic confrontation between Good and Evil.

Qvamp says:

One of the people fighting for good is identified as a dyke. She was a fairly powerful character, that was eventually killed Of course, the potentially gay-positive aspect of this book is offset by two of the evil characters (one of which being the personification of evil, the other just being evil and mentally-ill) engaging in anal intercourse and same-sex rape.
