    M. R. Carey kehrt zurück in die Welt von "Die Berufene" und erzählt deren Vorgeschichte: Ein parasitärer Pilz hat unzählige Menschen in "Hungrige" verwandelt, ausgemergelte Zombies, die nach lebendigem Fleisch gieren. In einem zum Labor umgebauten Panzer ist eine kleine Gruppe von Militärs und Wissenschaftlern auf der Suche nach Antworten, unter ihnen der 15-jährige Hochbegabte Steven. Bei einem seiner heimlichen Streifzüge entdeckt er eine Gruppe von Kindern unter den Hungrigen, die sich eigentümlich kontrolliert verhalten. Steven erkennt in den Kindern die einmalige Chance auf ein Heilmittel - doch wie weit wird er gehen, um die Menschheit - oder die, die sich dafür halten - zu retten?
