ALIVE: The Aftermath Chronicles
[Complete - Formerly Featured]
A woman with rare immunity and an AWOL troubled soldier struggle to keep her secret from those who would exploit her in a tyrannical, destroyed world.
When two infiltrates assimilate into the survivor's colony, a rebellious fugitive makes an unlikely allegiance with the outsiders who aim to take down her vile leader. The rebel faces her own grim fate when her attack against the regime triggers an uprising among those who persevere.
While the colony keeps the plague and the zombies out, other survivor groups ready to fight for one of the last remaining safe territories in apocalypse America. A cult moves in, lead by a notorious serial killer from the old world. The other group harbors a school-shooting survivor who will stop at nothing to ensure her friends see the next sunrise.
Clutching that hand within his own, he looks up to her with eyes filled with sorrow. She worried about him. Too much. He didn't deserve this. He should go. He should leave her so she'd be safer. But, he didn't want to. He wanted to stay. Wanted, what he shouldn't.
"Soph," He starts, "It's not our fight."
For the first time, Doyle didn't find the need to stand up for a cause, for what was right. In truth, he's tired. Exhausted, of leading the charge. Though it's what she loved about him, Sophie understands. Her free hand goes over his furrowed brow, the physical manifestation of all his pronounced fears.
He wants to let go, to take her in and it's that look in her eyes that compels her. The moment is thick with promise, with a sweet release, but it's broken with the rush upon the cabin.
