Harper—a college student looking for adventure in Europe—is exploring the picturesque landscape of Slovakia with her friends when things take a deadly turn. Within a blink of an eye, a carefree vacation turns to death and destruction.
People around them are dying without explanation. Death is fast, and painful, and apparently highly contagious. Ninety-five percent of people in the death zone fall prey to the killer within minutes.
To survive, Harper and her friends must get out of the death zone to the quarantine center at the Czech border.
But it’s not just the pandemic they need to outrun.
As they race for their lives, flashbacks to Harper’s traumatic childhood threaten to cripple her without warning. The route is treacherous: a devastating fire pursues them, and not all survivors are looking to get out of the city.
Armed with nothing but their will to survive, will they make it to the border before they succumb?
