Imagine if one day, without warning, the entire human race turns against you, if every person you know, every person you meet becomes a bloodthirsty, mindless savage . . .

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

  • Alexander Gordon Smith

  • Alexander Gordon Smith lives in Norwich, England. “You don’t see heroism, humanity and hope like you do in a horror story,” Gordon believes. “Horror celebrates the kind of friendship that keeps you standing shoulder to shoulder with someone even when the world is falling apart around you.”
