About Rabid Heart:
How far would you go for love when all you love is dead? Six months after the Necro Rabies pandemic turned the world into hordes of rabid undead known as “Cujos”, 21-year-old Rhonda Driscoll discovers her zombified fiancé, Brad, in her old hometown. Fearing that her Marine Colonel father will kill undead Brad, Rhonda flees, taking a road-trip with Brad in tow in hopes of starting a new life in a frightening and uncertain world complicated by numerous perils, pure horror, joy, heartbreak, and unconditional love.
Rabid Heart author Jeremy Wagner says, “I had a hard draft of Rabid Heart for some time and had it cooling for a while as I worked on some other projects for a couple years. Once I came back to Rabid Heart to revise, I fell in love with it all over again and thought I had something special for myself – I wrote for myself first and later hope others might enjoy my twisted tales.
I like f-ed up stories, I write f-ed up things. My style of fiction and my personal tastes in what I read all leans towards really dark fiction and usually has protagonists who go through hell – there’s a lot of that in Rabid Heart. The things that my main character, Rhonda Driscoll, goes through, might fit in nicely with McCarthy’s The Road and Romero’s Day of the Dead. I hope you all enjoy the ride.
I want to acknowledge Lori Perkins and Afraid/Riverdale Avenue Books for really getting behind this novel and making me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Watch for AFRAID/Riverdale Avenue Books the re-release of my first novel, The Armageddon Chord. Thanks for reading! Support horror fiction!”

– Rue Morgue Magazine
“Zombies and the end of days don’t stand a chance against true love. Jeremy Wagner‘s Rabid Heart is good, clean apocalyptic fun.”
– Alma Katsu, author of The Hunger
“Just when you think you’ve heard every love story, along comes Rabid Heart. My man Jeremy Wagner proves once again he’s as much of a wild man with words as he is with his guitar. This book is sick and sweet, and I say that with respect!”
– Peter Blauner, NY Times bestselling author of The Intruder and Sunrise Highway
“Rabid Heart is Wagner’s finest work to date. Exciting and near-addictive. A page-turner that avid horror aficionados will be drawn to with glee.”
– Dead Rhetoric, 9/10 Review
“Rabid Heart is a next level opus that raises the stakes considerably – both in terms of emotional resonance and viscera-flinging brutality. And good goddamn, is it a white-knuckle thrill ride.”
– Decibel Magazine
“Wagner just has this innate ability to write about these real-life topics and put them into a blender with horror, action, and suspense.”
– Metal Temple
“I like books best when I get a sense that the author really cares for their characters. Rabid Heart is one of those books. If you’d enjoy a classic tale of boy meets girl, boy turns zombie, girl tries desperately to save boy, then Rabid Heart is a book for you.”
– L.T. Vargus, author of Beyond Good & Evil and Dead End Girl
“Another in a long line of zombie road trip tales, Wagner adds a romantic angle to keep things fresh among the putrefied undead.”
– Nick Cato, author of Death Witch and Uptown Death Squad
“It’s f*cking brilliant… f*cking loving it. So f*cking good.”
– Brian Keene, bestselling author of The Rising and Return to Lost Level

– Publishers Weekly
“An evil Egyptologist. A scheming billionaire. A guitar maestro. They’re all there in Jeremy Wagner‘s, The Armageddon Chord. This is pulp fiction at its breeziest best.”
– Rolling Stone
