A decadent rock star. A deeply religious radio host. A disgraced scientist. And a teenage girl who may be the world's last hope. From the mind of Chuck Wendig comes an astonishing tapestry of humanity that Harlan Coben calls "a suspenseful, twisty, satisfying, surprising, thought-provoking epic."
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 on their journey, they will discover an America convulsed with terror and violence, where this apocalyptic epidemic proves less dangerous than the fear of it. As the rest of society collapses all around them—and an ultraviolent milita threatens 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.
Advance praise for Wanderers

"Brilliant, incisive, inventive, true, and as painful as the punch that pops out a blackened tooth, Wanderers is as much a warning as it is a paean to hope and redemption. With this book, Chuck Wendig proves he's the next Stephen King. Trust me: You're not ready for this book."—Delilah S. Dawson, New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Phasma
"Chuck Wendig's Wanderers doesn't just pick up the gauntlet thrown by The Stand, it runs away with it, building a new mythology in its place. This brutally epic story of survival takes humanity to the edge and beyond. An astounding adventure."—Fran Wilde, Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy finalist and award-winning author of the Bone Universe trilogy
"With Wanderers, Chuck Wendig levels up—and when you consider the high level he was already writing at, that's saying something."—John Scalzi, New York Times bestselling author of The Consuming Fire
