The King of Thorns is a well written manga series. It is a bit violent but the concept it intriguing. A quick summary of the story line is a deadly disease called The Medusa Virus slowly turns the infected to stone. The Medusa Virus sweeps across the globe and a select few of the infected get chosen to go into cryostasis until a cure is found. Unfortunately, a few people get woken up early to a world hardly recognizable as Earth. A group of 7 people escape from the room they were awakened from but found that there no way out. They struggle to survive in this new and horrible world. It doesn't end there but I don't want to give everything away. :) Happy reading!!!!!!
