Outbreak - Week 1
Presidents, premiers, entire governments disappeared instantly, like a fragile house of cards in a hurricane. Some hid deep underground or holed up in fortified strongholds, but most were swallowed up by the dead, never to be heard from again.
For Cade Grayson - doting father and patriotic Delta Force operator - the past week has been the worst dealt to him by life during his short 35-year stint on planet Earth.
Following a hashed-together kill or capture mission that saw Cade and the newly formed Pale Rider team travel to Northern Utah to confront a band of escaped convicts turned cannibal, he returns to the compound in rural Utah with a grim task: Bury three more of his people in the already crowded hillside cemetery.
With Zs flooding the valley to the east, and Chinese PLA scouts probing inland from the west, Cade immediately guns up and leaves the wire with his daughter, Raven, in tow. His new mission is twofold: to infuse Raven with as much survival knowledge as possible and to find a close friend who has gone missing and feared dead.
But while Cade and Raven are away, the Eden group’s ranks are further thinned when two more of their own disappear. Will Cade find outside the wire all that he is searching for? Will Raven emerge from the crucible intact?
Caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place, will the remaining Eden members learn what has happened to the missing...or will they be Gone forever?
