At the start of the zombie apocalypse you can watch what’s happening on TV. But very soon your food runs out, the TV networks go off air, your power and water drop out, and you have to leave the safety of your own home and go out into the chaos.
Death Sense is a story about people who do just that, either in small groups, alone, or in large communities, and what happens to them as the world continues to crumble under the weight of the zombie onslaught.
Each group struggles to survive and adapt in a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies and other bands of survivors – some friendly, some adversarial – and not every group will make it.
The cities are first to fall, huge urban centers like San Francisco falling in just a few days, so the book takes place in the coastal redwood forests of northern California. As each last bastion of society crumbles, the people of the area must more and more confront the possibility that they – and other small groups in the hinterlands around the globe – are the last humans in the world.
Death Sense is a novel about the constant battle against the end of the world brought on a tide of zombies, but there is also space for human relationships. People who would never otherwise meet are forced together, and their feelings are felt intensely, sometimes hate and sometimes love.
