This novella is an introduction/prequel to Hough's 'Darwin Elevator,' which I haven't read. in it, we meet several characters whom I assume are followed in the next books in the series.

The scenario? A 'zombie' apocalypse/plague. It's fairly by-the-numbers, as far as 'outbreak' fiction. The unusual aspect of this iteration of the theme is that there's an alien space elevator which appeared in the city of Darwin, Australia, about a decade ago. Now, Darwin seems to be the only location on Earth that's free of the plague. ( )

Book description
Jason M. Hough goes back to the beginning with this eBook exclusive novella, the prequel to the New York Times bestseller The Darwin Elevator. An indispensable introduction to a trilogy wrought with action, imagination, and mystery, The Dire Earth is sure to thrill new readers and diehard fans alike.
 
In the middle of the twenty-third century, an inexplicable disease engulfs the globe, leaving a trail of madness and savagery in its wake. Dutch air force pilot Skyler Luiken discovers he is immune to the disease when he returns from a mission to find the world in chaos, but he soon realizes that he’s not the only one to have endured the apocalypse. Elsewhere, the roguish Skadz, the cunning Nigel, and the tough-as-nails Samantha each make their way toward the last remaining bastion of sanity: Darwin, Australia, home to a mysterious alien artifact that may hold the key to the survival of the human race.   [retrieved 6/15/2019 from Amazon.com]
