"This is an absolute must-read. His exploration of human character and personality is exceptional. Fully-fledged characters like these are hard to find." - Readers' Favorite

Four-year-old Ben was just the beginning. The chilling realization that there were millions of other orphaned children struck Mo soon after his dying neighbor thrust the boy into his care. Then Deb, a retired schoolteacher hellbent on saving as many children as possible, upended Mo's loner ways. Together, they forge a small community of unvaccinated survivors. An unlikely group of heroes emerges from the ashes of civilization to join them:

  • Dee, an inner-city gang member with a violent background
  • Jessica, a med-school dropout struggling to overcome her past
  • Amanda, an IT specialist and secret anti-vaxxer
  • Joshua, a pacifist battery scientist with a fear of needles
  • Titus and Chris, modern-day MacGyvers whose conflicts threaten the progress of the group

Together, they must face untold horrors while breaking into the homes of the dead to rescue abandoned children before it's too late. But not everyone is on their side, for evil intent lurks in the minds of other survivors.

This is an engrossing tale of speculative fiction. Its premise: five years after the pandemic, the vaccinated population dies off. The few remaining adults, vastly outnumbered by unvaccinated young children, must learn to survive in this post-apocalyptic world. They will need to overcome their polarizing differences and learn to cooperate if they are to succeed in their common goal: the survival of the children.

"The Unvaccinated has a complex plot and is terrifying at times. The story is fast-paced, with a detailed description of the conditions in the homes that are searched for children. Jean Grandbois allows us to be part of the struggles of the key characters in their battle for survival. With Jean's writing style, it was easy to become part of the surviving team and share in their emotions." - Readers' Favorite

"Great read that I couldn't put down! I also liked that it didn't involve politics and had a great story line.
I would definitely read more by this author and would love a sequel!"
- customer review

"The author has taken a timely topic and delivered a solid story filled with a wide range of well-developed characters. Both the good and the bad are on display in such a realistic fashion that I find myself wondering what parts of these people I could find within me. The author has foregone the use of 'superheroes' who can do everything on their own and, instead, has chosen to build a story around the sort of believable, average, people you might pass on the street. Or see in the mirror each morning. He has demonstrated that there is a hero inside each of us, if we only have the courage and determination to try." - customer review

"I thought this was going to be an antivaxxer writing a book to say 'I told you so' in a few years when the vaccinated all start dropping. I couldn't have been more wrong. The story had me hooked from the first page and the characters all had something relatable about them. Can we have a sequel please!" customer review

About the Author

Jean has refused to set roots, having lived everywhere from the frozen winters of Alberta, to the scorching heat of Southern California, to the wet and windy Netherlands.

He is a firm believer that pizza is the perfect food (unless you put pineapple on it, that’s just wrong).

When not writing software, he is writing prose, renovating his house, or making herbal soap with his six-year-old daughter.

Jean has had two shots and a booster, but no dizzy spells. Yet…
