Zombies walk among us. Look like us. Talk like us.
When Chicago scientist Bryan Southworth found the secret to eternal life
through nanocell technology, he didn’t know it’d come with a cost:
death. The process of Reanimation requires physical death for
bio-synthetic cellular replication to take hold, but maintaining eternal
life depends on timely injections of fresh cells to replace those used.
Should a patient’s supply run too low, the computer chip installed at
the base of the neck deactivates consciousness, freeing up the body to
seek out new cells any way necessary.
Mikal Edmonds is your average zombie – or Reanimated Citizen as they
prefer to be called – on his first date in over a decade when an attack
by the religious terrorist group calling themselves the Naturalists
changes everything. Now the target of a zealot’s fervor, Mikal’s
willpower is tested as he confronts his past and tries to avoid the one
thing he fears above all else: a blackout.
