One day, humanity is hurled into chaos as zombies appear throughout the world. These new monsters will chase for miles; they’ll stalk and hide in ambush; they don’t eat or drink; their singular goal is to spread the infection to everyone–and everything–in their path. The few people who make it through the initial wave struggle to survive in this horrifying new reality. Will anyone learn to live in this new world? Or will this be the end of humankind?
The story follows several different characters in their fight for survival as these cunning and quick new monsters take over the world. Abigail tries to find her family. Nathaniel seeks shelter. Charlie stands her ground and refuses to leave her farm. Evie and Eric face challenges they’d never dreamed of. Brad and his father head west, as far from civilization as they can get. Paths cross and intertwine. Who will make it out alive? Who won’t? And who will end up as the monsters in between?
