Three months ago, seventeen-year-old Evelyn Paverson's world ended. Staying alive is now a struggle when desperate men and fast, flesh-eating monsters lurk around every corner.
Twenty-year-old Liam's days aren't much better, but at least his brother is alive. That's more than can be said for most people.
After Liam saves Eve from a gruesome fate, she's left with a choice: join his group or leave. The decision is clear when being alone makes survival unlikely.
From a crazed old man and his kind-hearted wife to a modest nurse and a former prom queen, the group is everything Eve didn't expect and a family she never knew existed. On their journey cross-county to find refuge, the group quickly learns it's not the affected they need to worry about but those still human.
