Survival comes first and at any price - a lesson Gareth and his remaining people take with them after Terminus is destroyed. They plunge into the wild, burdened by aches of hunger, pain, and fear, along with the basic human need for safety and warmth. Gareth must struggle with being the decisive leader his people need, his brother and wife must navigate a relationship in the elements, and others are unsure they want to be there.
The answer Gareth gave when asked how long they would be butchers was until they didn't have to be anymore. The world beyond Terminus will decide if they must remain the predators.
A canon divergent story in which Gareth and other Terminants live, exploring the dark, damaged, and fascinating Walking Dead villains who should have lived and gotten a whole story of their own.
This is the sequel to To Be Hungry, but it's written ensuring it can be read alone due to the prequel's canon compliant nature.
Happy reading, and please vote and comment. I welcome all feedback; compliments and concrit alike!
