It’s 2134 in a dystopian America, one century after a series of zombie plagues first infected then obliterated much of the world’s population.
The survivors formed six walled Cities throughout the continent, all under the rule of a totalitarian government that enforces strict control over its populace.
You must obey your government.
You must be a good citizen.
You must be a productive citizen.
You must not break the law.
Or The City Watch will find you and arrest you.
Jonah Lovecraft, a former Watcher, was arrested for the murder of his wife. Like most criminals, he has one chance at freedom ? to participate in The Darwin Games, a televised survival show pitting two players from each city against one another in The Barrens, the uninhabited areas outside the City Walls.
He’ll also have to face another enemy ? the zombies still roaming The Barrens.
As he fights for his freedom against impossible odds, his daughter, Anastasia, stumbles into people who have information about her father ? information that will change her life forever.
While putting her in the crosshairs of her father’s enemies.
