Outbreak - Week 1
Presidents, prime ministers, 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.
Having lost both parents just weeks apart - one to Omega, the other to a brutal beating inflicted by Chinese PLA soldiers - 12-year-old Raven Grayson finds herself in the nation’s new capital, battling loneliness and crushing depression, all while trying to find her place among her fellow transplanted Eden survivors.
Stumbling across a seemingly senseless act of destruction wrought on something near and dear to her, Raven follows the trail of clues left behind. A trail whose terminus offers up a revelation that suggests the life of a very important person may hang in the balance.
With a litany of new laws to navigate, and an indifferent chief of police standing in her way, if Raven is to bring the perpetrators to justice, she must dig deep and apply every skill she has learned in the crucible that is the zombie apocalypse.
What should she do with the evidence she uncovers? Will she adapt and improvise when one pulled string starts unraveling everything, heaping upon her more trouble than she can handle alone?
Or, will the training she has received since the dead began to walk be insufficient for her to overcome all that the infamous Mr. Murphy has in store for her?
Come along and find out how our transplanted survivors fare in their new home away from home!
