Publisher's Summary

In Deadlands, life is a lottery. Ten years have passed since Cape Town was destroyed in the war with the living dead. Now, human survivors are protected from the zombies that lurch around the suburban Deadands by shrouded figures known as "Guardians".

But the price for protection is steep: Each year, the Guardians hold a human lottery in which five teenagers are chosen for a secret purpose. Seventeen-year-old Lele hates everything about her life in the city: her new school, the brainwashed zombie-lovers, the way everyone seems creepily obsessed with teenagers....

She wants out. Then she is picked as a Chosen One: But she's not prepared to face whatever shady future the Guardians have in store for her. So she runs for her life - straight into the Deadlands, and into the ranks of the Mall Rats - a renegade gang of misfit teens who have gone underground - and are preparing to take a stand.
