The zombies have come, and the world as we know it has forever changed. In the wake of the apocalypse, pockets of the living fiercely fight what could be a losing battle against unending hordes of hungry undead.
In this nightmarish world Casey, a young woman armed with nothing more than a baseball bat and her courage, tries to keep nine-year old Alex alive. Alex doesn’t speak; seemingly trapped with his own thoughts. Casey finds it hard to tell how much he understands.
While searching for food they run into a patrol from a nearby settlement based out of what used to be a luxury hotel. The patrol’s leader, Danny, offers them shelter. Despite Casey’s misgivings, night is falling, and they are out of options.
They reach the hotel where they meet the settlement’s ruler, Lot, an older woman who seems matronly and tough in equal measure. She takes an immediate interest in Alex, and invites them to stay.
If only Casey could know what Lot has in store for them…
ABOUT M.F. WAHL
As a child M.F. Wahl quickly ate through the local library’s entire sections on the paranormal, true crime, serial killers, magic, and hypnosis. By the age of 11 “IT” by Stephen King was the reading material of choice, hidden in a school desk (much to the dismay of one math teacher who wrote home that Wahl “read too much!”).
As an adult M.F. Wahl spends as much time writing as possible. Days are spent funneling creative energies into penning dark tales. Nights are spent watching horror movies and TV curled under a blanket with the family. At the end of the day when eyes finally close other people’s nightmares are fuel for M.F. Wahl’s dreams.
“I’ve always felt that all the good zombie stories were really about people. Horror and gore is a must for any great zombie novel, but true darkness is bedfellow to the living.”
