The post-apocalyptic series fans are describing as "one of the best post-apocalypse stories I've ever read." Once infected, the virus shuts down organs, kills nerve impulses, and even reprograms the way we think. The virus becomes us. But the process takes eight hours. If the only remaining member of your family was infected, what would you do? Chris Smith has eight hours to get his infected daughter Maisie to the rumored cure or lose her forever. The only things in his way: a marauding army of killer zombies, a self-declared warrior goddess, and a secret buried deep in his past.
