It didn’t take long for the world to die. The dead rose with no explanation and only one purpose... to eat living flesh.
Born on the day everything died, the world of the living dead is the only world that Aaron knows. Kept in relative isolation from the walking corpses, his family teaches him how to read and write, how to survive on his own. After a tragedy hits close to home, Aaron discovers he is different than any human left alive.
The undead want nothing to do with him.
The survivors of the old suburb of Lexington call a high school their home. They survive day to day, without any of the luxuries mankind used to enjoy, and surrounded by the living dead. Samantha is a product of the new world. Alone, cold, looking out only for herself. She and the other residents of Lexington feel their hope dwindling. They need change. They need someone who isn't afraid of the walking corpses. They need someone who would rather live in a city of the dead.
They need Aaron.
On the day "everything" died, an old and new world are created. Mark Douglas Nelson brings to life Glenn Bullion’s story of trust, friendship, and, of course, romance among the living who survive among the dead. For reasons he can’t understand Aaron can travel unstalked among the biters. Raised to help others he saves Samantha, who has learned only the lessons of putting one’s own needs first in a world where those no longer living will not decompose. That rescue is the first step on the dramatic path that will change her, him and all the others who live in fear.

Different angle on the undead
Just the story and the main characters attitude.
Hard to say, all the other character warm to the main guy. But it all makes sense in the end cause he is a solid genuine person.
All flowed and where accented to give a real enjoyment to the story telling.
I loved the BAD people getting there comeuppance.
Great one off first story hope it leads to many a sequel.
