What would you do, if everything you've ever known no longer seems to be the way they are?

How do you cope, if your parents suddenly die a tragic, mysterious death, and the people around you become more notorious day by day?

Where do you go, once you discover that the undead seem to be mysteriously coming back to wreck havoc among the living?

Follow the story of Ken Summers, the unfortunate high school student caught in the middle of it all as he struggles to make sense of his otherworldly predicament. Adrenaline-inducing thrill, action, and drama await as he uncovers truths behind a potential threat to the city--or even worse--humanity itself.
