From Joe Hill, The Fireman describes a world obliterated by a spore based plague, named Dragonscale, that sets its victims and the world aflame. The survivors of the first wave of the illness must decide if Dragonscale is something to be eradicated, or celebrated. Aside from an awkward depiction of a dysfunctional marriage, Hill's characters are genuine and believable. The book ends with a set up for a sequel, but, it could just as well be a one book story.
