They have come from the stars …
In this riveting apocalyptic
thriller for fans of The
Passage and The
Walking Dead, a mysterious event plunges Paris into darkness and a young
American must lead her friends to safety—and escape the ravenous “undying” who
now roam the crumbling city.
Jeanie and Ben arrive in
Paris just in time for a festive New Year’s Eve celebration with local friends.
They eat and drink and carry on until suddenly, at midnight, all the lights go
out. Everywhere they look, buildings and streets are dark, as though the
legendary Parisian revelry has somehow short circuited the entire city.
By the next morning, all hell
has broken loose. Fireballs rain down from the sky, the temperatures are
rising, and people run screaming through the streets. Whatever has happened in
Paris—rumors are of a comet striking the earth—Jeanie and Ben have no way of
knowing how far it has spread, or how much worse it will get. As they attempt
to flee the burning Latin Quarter—a harrowing journey that takes them across
the city, descending deep into the catacombs, and eventually to a makeshift
barracks at the Louvre Museum—Jeanie knows the worst is yet to come. So far,
only she has witnessed pale, vampiric survivors who seem to exert a powerful
hold on her whenever she catches them in her sights.
These cunning, ravenous
beings will come to be known as les
moribund—the undying—and their numbers increase by the hour. When
fate places a newborn boy in her care, Jeanie will stop at nothing to keep the
infant safe and get out of Paris—even if it means facing off against the
moribund and leaving Ben—and any hope of rescue—behind. Download and start listening now!
