A chronicle of survival in a world of the living dead.
There is no Heaven or Hell; there is only blood and the dust of flesh.
Tears of Blood
Vale's safe, contented existence was a lie exposed when the dead began to walk.
The truth was she'd been "dead" for years, no less aimless or lost than the reanimated corpses devouring the world. But with society collapsing, Vale came to life and discovered things about herself she never would've learned in the old world.
Now that she was really alive, she refused to let the dead take that away from her.
She never expected the world outside her apartment to be so much more brutal and deadly than she'd imagined. She didn't count on the cruelty and madness she found among the airport people. Then the stranger came, walking among the living dead as if he was invisible, untouchable, a living mystery with the terrifying power to thrust them all into a whirlwind of madness and violence in the name of faith. And Vale, who prefers to see the world through the scope of her rifle, must fight to stay alive...
