Should half-dead look so good?
When your best friend is infected with some kind of rage zombie virus, do you…
A. Run for your life?
B. Put a bullet in his brain?
C. Trust that he won't hurt you?
When Jasmyn Saunders sees Akin Pratt moves at a predatory speed and use his superhuman strength, she knows she should be afraid of him. But Jasmyn refuses to be scared of the man she loves, even if he technically isn't a man at all anymore. Keeping her feelings in check is vital to their survival in more ways than one. Just a kiss from Akin may infect her, but it feels like the world is ending, and she wants to tell him how she really feels—before he is too far gone to care.
Akin is losing his humanity with each passing minute. One thing still familiar to him is his desire for Jasmyn, which is as strong as his newfound abilities. Yet, more than ever he is determined to keep her at arm's length. The infected are constantly attacking, mercenaries are out to kill them all, and the anger he's kept locked away his entire life is harder to tether. But he refuses to give in completely to the infection raging inside him until Jasmyn is safe even if that means sacrificing himself.
