During the 21st century a new pandemic explodes out of the Siberian mountains. Unstoppable, the virus breaks every containment line, defies every treatment. The infected do not die. They change. The zombie apocalypse has arrived.
The vampires of the world, shadow-brokers who had been amassing power and wealth for centuries, acted to preserve their food-supply; us. Millions flocked to the promised refuges, never stopping to ask what the price would be.
Generations later, humans and vampires alike struggle under the weight of corporate rule. For the covert operative Ling, Sydney is a chance to recuperate after an operation in Europe goes terribly wrong. The perfect location to avoid unwanted attention. For Marie, it used to be the ideal place to pursue her research. After decades of watching her discoveries abused, sometimes with disastrous consequences, she hides her most important breakthrough: a cure to the virus. When the company discovers her secret, they’ll stop at nothing to control it. Together, the two may have a chance to change the world. All they need to do is the impossible.
