Tim Zachariah Muley has had a hell of a week. He stumbled onto a massive outbreak of the walking dead, rescued a baby from a bloodthirsty horde, escaped from the military, then watched as his infected father was murdered by the same mysterious stranger everyone else calls a saint. Now, kidnapped by the aforementioned savior, Tim finds himself surrounded by loyal apostles with unbelievable powers, savage zombies hungry for flesh, and the kind of scientific conspiracy he could never have imagined in his wildest nightmares. Who is this secretive, bandaged antihero? What is the truth behind the zombie virus? And what does it have to do with a fantasy-prone teenage gamer?
