About this audiobook

From New York Times best-selling author Jamie Thornton.

A thrilling science fiction series. Follow a group of unlikely heroes deep into an apocalypse.


Mary knows how to thrive on the street. She makes it her mission to keep other kids away from everyday monsters. But when she's attacked by a crazed man clutching a bloody heart she realizes—there's a new kind of monster in town.

A single drop of blood, and now Mary's one of the infected. Unless she can stop the virus and save her friends, the new monster in town might just be her.

"...This isn't the boxcar children covered with a veneer of wholesomeness. These street kids know how to survive on the streets, and it isn't always pretty... heart-stopping and horrific...." ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

"Where do I even start? I guess here: it's refreshing to finally read a disease-centred apocalyptic story that feels real... cannot wait to see what happens next...." ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

If you like anything (or most things) with quickly-spreading viruses, zombies, realistic teenaged characters, learning how homeless kids get by on the street, action, and strong intriguing, cannot-put-it-down tale...." ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

"The first book left me hungry for the next one..." ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

"This book was bad@sss..." ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

It focuses on Mary as she tells the story, and approaches it from t
