Jesse, Sawyer, and Topher have found the closest thing to happiness they can in the survivalist town of Salvation. Six months after the meteor shower that thrust the world into a zombie apocalypse, the trio is finally finding their place. Jesse serves as a guard for Salvation--he eliminates all threats on the makeshift city, going out day after day to kill Infected and Mutated. Topher tirelessly struggles to find a cure for the infection and assists at the hospital, and Sawyer excels as a scavenger who brings back supplies. But their bliss shatters one day when Sawyer fails to return. Now Jesse will test his limits as he and Topher set out to bring Sawyer back. Jesse will have to make a decision on the fate of their family when they find the third member of their relationship. Nothing will ever be the same, and the weight of world begins to press down on Jesse. He soon realizes that he's fighting more than the Infected; if he doesn't get control soon, the war raging inside Jesse will consume him. He'll have to decide what lengths he's willing to go in order to protect the men he loves.
