The experience made her realize how much of life she’d been missing.
Ever since she was a child, fate had tried to weave her into the fabric of her destiny. Now it seemed that time had finally caught her and Catherine would become embroiled in an age-old mystery that she must either solve or share the fate of so many before her!
Three surviving groups emerge out of the chaos. In the north, a zombie horde, led by the Tusker, Napoleon, has vowed to return and kill the last uninfected humans. In the south, a heavily armed and organized band of humans has vowed to wipe out the Tuskers. And in the middle, in the small desert town of Carver, unaware of the impending struggle, a small band of Tuskers and humans are working together to survive the Aporkcalypse. They are working feverishly to discover a cure to the zombie virus.
Inevitably, they are found, and the two armies converge. Together, the people and Tuskers of Carver must find a way to survive. But even more, they must find a way to end the conflict before both species are destroyed.
