It is Oct. 24, 2013 and Dave has just left the church where he set off grenades to kill all the infected at the church. Dave became infected and shot himself in order to keep himself from becoming part of the "undead population".

There they discover more survivors, those who work for Tank along with a customer and neighbor. Here they are trying to survive. With strict orders not to go outside, a few do and the small group slowly goes down in numbers.
Kate is still alive and trying to get to Ohio herself. Along the way she is picked up by Agent Jack Kelly, who she soon discovers is looking for Angel as well. Angel holds a very important key to surviving. Along the way Jack explains how they virus came about. We also see background stories on little Kimmie who no one could connect with or understand here behavior. She faced a death that she did not deserve.
Dr. Stephen Pierce created X3lz-22 to help with an immunization for a rare strain of Influenza. It only strengthened and mutated the virus. Seeing that this was more harmful than good it was locked away, only to be stolen and put into the wrong hands. We see how the virus spreads and infected everyone. . . innocent people were destroyed.
What is the key that Angel holds?? Will it save them ?? DO they actually find Angel ?? These are all questions that left me wanting more from book 2. Book 3 picks right up and does not disappoint ! It will keep you on the edge of your seat wanting more ! I hope the author continues writing more in this series ! Its a great read and you can not help but to fall in love with the characters.
