Peace: a state of mutual harmony between people or group. Love: a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person. Zombie: the body of a dead person given the semblance of life, but mute and will-less, by a supernatural force, usually for some evil purpose. All these things live in Gwyn's life. This story doesn't circle around the apocalypse, it circles around Gwyn Valentine's life, how she makes it out of the dreadful road death has made for here in Terra Grande, how she falls for the most perfect guy, the mistakes she makes, and the lack of peace that follows her. So yes this is a zombie story, but that's not all it is, It's a Valentine story (not the holiday).
