ELA (Author & Amazon Reviewer): “Shah has done it again with her flowing style. The characters are so realistic that it’s chilling. I will admit to having read this with the lights well and truly on!! Such vivid imagery that it felt like I was watching a movie as I read. I highly recommend this novella to all lovers of this genre.”
It wasn’t the first time Bernie had woken up in a stranger’s house with a sore head, although it’d been a while. But the stench of rotting meat, an eerie silence, and the head wound were new. In search of illumination, she opens the curtains to find a post-apocalyptic world outside. Reason screams—those aren’t sleeping revellers at her feet… they’re clammy dead bodies.
Struggling to remember the events leading to her taking refuge under a stranger’s bed, Bernie stumbles around, wounded and disoriented. In desperation, she hunts down the living, but with death and destruction everywhere, isolation becomes a monster all of its own.
The events that led to this disaster begin to raid her mind, offering only snippets of forgotten information. When a girl finds her and leads her to other survivors, will Bernie remember the most important details in time to save them all, or are their fates irreversible?
