The Running (Book One)
"They are the only thing keeping me sane, keeping me having hope. If they go, I have nothing left"
Lydia only has 2 friends: Cane Manners, and her Uzi Submachine Gun.
Lydia lives in what she calls the Ruins. The virus that killed most of the human race also created the 'munchers' zombie creatures who will stop at nothing to get flesh and blood into their rotting, decapitated bodies. With missing legs and covered in blood, they roam the Earth looking for their next meal. Either in packs on on their own, they are deadly to everyone.
Years of running, years of hiding, Lydia thought she and Cane were some of the last humans without missing limbs left. Until she meets humans who don't want to kill them. Two of them who are her only family left. Together they make their way through the barren wasteland that they used to call home, to the last hope they have left.
Lydia only knows how to survive, and that is all she thinks she knows. But in a world that is full of fear and lost hope, can she reach their last hope time before the Munchers reach it? Or will the Munchers catch them for their next meal?
