Orissa Penwell will do anything in the zombie plagued world to keep her friends safe. After the discovery of a zombie-proof safe house, she thinks things may actually work out and they can get through the apocalypse together. The compound offers more than just shelter. It gives her and her friends a sense of community and purpose. It gives them a reason to keep living in the dead world.
But her chance at happiness is shattered when someone she recently let into her life—and her heart—is shot. Hell-bent on revenge, Orissa will do whatever it takes to seek vengeance and get even…without caring what the risk is for herself.
Things quickly go from bad to worse and she finds herself lost and abandoned—and forced to face the zombie-plagued world on her own. When lies, secrets, and desperation are added to the already harrowing world, Orissa discovers that zombies aren’t the only things to worry about.
What—or who—will justice cost her? And just how far will Orissa go to avenge someone she loves?
