Publisher's Summary

"I wasn't afraid of death. If I died, it would be over. My worst fear wasn't of dying, it was of living. Living, while everyone around me had their flesh savagely torn from their bodies to be shoved into the festering and ever-hungry mouths of zombies. It terrified me, right down to my very core, to be alive while the rest of the world was dead."

During the Second Great Depression, 24-year-old Orissa Penwell is forced to drop out of college when she is no longer able to pay for classes. Unable to find a job, she moves in with her aunt in Indianapolis. Down on her luck, Orissa doesn't think she can go any lower.

She couldn't be more wrong. A virus breaks out across the country, leaving the infected crazed, aggressive and very hungry.

Orissa is used to only being responsible for herself. When she finds herself a reluctant leader of a group of survivors, she must make a choice: set aside her issues and help the others or go off alone in search of her own family and friends.

    "Great read but next book not up"

    I really liked this, I would have like it more if I hadn't realise 20 chapters in that despite the next book having been publish so time before it was not yet on audible. Yes I know I can get the ebook but I buy audio books because my boss lets me listen at work.

    "Fantastic Story!"

    An enjoyable read that really leaves in suspense. I love the zombie apocalypse. I really enjoyed book 1 and I'm looking forward to book 2.
