The closest Alex Harley has ever been to a zombie is on his game console. Trapped in a dead end job and spending his weekends gaming, Alex is coasting through life at his own pace.
But one fateful weekend, he agrees to go hiking with his pal Mike. Mike’s girlfriend, Elena, is bringing her friend Lucy along and that is good enough reason for Alex to endure gruelling hikes along a mountain range in Wales.
The day the four friends hit the mountains, the outbreak begins. Day Z has arrived. Alex’s radio receives mysterious reports of savage attacks in London before switching to the Emergency Broadcast System. The dead are rising, and the living must fight for survival.
Fighting hordes of zombies and avoiding army patrols, Alex and his friends must reach the coast, and the safety of the sea.
But then their problems will just begin…
Alex Harley wasn’t cut out to be a survivor in a zombie apocalypse. And now he may have made a fatal mistake.
Going ashore to find news of his brother and parents, Alex is attacked by feral survivors. When he gets back to the harbor, he finds his boat…and Lucy…gone.
Stranded on the mainland, alone and vulnerable, he seeks shelter from the shambling zombies and the roaming army patrols. He meets a group of survivors who seem to be on a mission. They have foud a way to get a message to the survivors in the camps. Alex joins them, intent on getting a message to Lucy if she is still alive.
But like every mission, this one could be deadly. It means the group must move inland and stay alive long enough to achieve their objective.
With power-hungry soldiers and flesh-craving zombies everywhere, that isn’t going to be easy…
In a desperate bid to save Lucy, Alex goes in search of the secret government facility on Apocalypse Island. If the scientists there created the virus, then surely they have a cure. Alex will go to any lengths to get it, even if it means risking his life in a building full of monsters.
Even if it means facing patient zero..
