Zreaks of Nature: A Post-Apocalyptic Fairytale
“He who was living is now dead.
We who were living are now dying
with a little patience.”
—T. S. Eliot, The Waste Land
Lucy Orville is the last person you’d expect to survive the zombie apocalypse—she’s fat, mobility-impaired, and incapable of functioning without her meds. So how is she going to stay alive? Well, that’s easy. Lucy is immune to zombification. Only she doesn’t know it. Yet.
He can’t save you
better than you do.
—Caitlyn Siehl, “Death March”
It’s been sixty-seven days since the zombie virus mutated from a latent waterborne pathogen into a deadly airborne strain that wiped out at least 97% of the human population. Atlanta belongs to the dead now, and Fort Benning isn’t an option. Lucy Orville doesn’t know what lies ahead or where she goes from here. All that she knows is how to survive in a hostile environment—and thrive.
Sequel to Living Dead Girl.
“I’ve always felt that the real horror is next door to us, that the scariest monsters are our neighbors.”
—George A. Romero
Once upon a time, there lived a girl: a girl whose past trauma gave her the ability to know the difference between living and surviving, a girl who adapted to survive a plague contagious enough to wipe out at least 99.99% of the human population on the planet, a girl who met a hunter off the beaten path and stole his heart. That girl is Lucy Orville, and this is her story.
Threequel to Living Dead Girl and Something for Nothing.
