Excerpt:
“The dinosaurs had been killed off by a plague, Melodie mused – and she was looking at the guilty microbe right now. But the plagues weren’t caused by the slow joining of continents. They were triggered by the impact itself. The asteroid strike had caused worldwide forest fires, darkness, starvation, catastrophic loss of habitats. …. The asteroid impact had created perfect conditions for the massive spread of disease among the survivors – the landscape would have been littered with dead and dying animals, the rest starving, burned, injured, their immune systems in collapse. Under those conditions, a devastating epidemic wouldn’t just be possible … it would be inevitable.”
