Amy Harris’s life changed forever when They took over. Her parents — vanished. The government — obsolete. Societal structure — nonexistent. No one knows where They came from, but these vicious creatures have been rapidly devouring mankind since they arrived.
With fierce survivor instincts, Amy manages to stay alive — and even rescues “Baby,” a toddler who was left behind. After two years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope, a survivor’s colony built on a former government research facility. On the surface, it appears to be safe. But there are dark and twisted secrets lurking beneath that, once uncovered, could have Amy and Baby paying with not only their freedom... but their lives.
