The worst has happened. Humanity has fallen. There is no future. There is no hope. Ten years earlier, a deadly virus wiped out the majority of the human species, with the exception of a handful of souls who possess a rare genetic immunity. Now, a terrible new enemy has emerged, one that threatens to destroy everything the survivors have worked so hard to build.
In its darkest hour, humanity needs a hero. Sandy McDermott has decided that she will be that hero. Not because she’s special, because she isn’t. She’s not particularly strong, gifted, or unique in any way. No, she will become a hero because her family need it.
Heroes are not born, but forged by dire need and tempered by experience, when ordinary people step forward and perform extraordinary deeds in the name of the greater good.
