The world has changed beyond recognition. With half the population gone, the rest struggle for survival behind closed doors with a daily radio update as their only contact to the outside world. Cassie has been alone for longer than she can remember, whilst Jon can’t remember the last time he had a real conversation with anything that had blood running through its veins. With reality dwindling day by day and a serendipitous key bringing these two strangers together, is there any real chance for survival?
