Vivi and Eva are two travelers in a countryside filled with the undead. The survivors of their world live behind barricades—and live in fear of the next attack. After a train breaks down, stranding Vivi and Eva between safe zones, the young women partner up to stay alive. Vivi is struggling with grief—and guilt—over the loss of her sister. Eva is hiding the start of a horrifying transformation. Together they’ll face intense heat, zombie hordes, and their own inner demons, searching for signs of life in a land of the dead.

Be sure to grab a copy before it’s time for Halloween reading!
