From the Author

Although this book does feature the undead, it is not intended to be horror. The Survivors is a little bit apocalyptic, a bit dystopian, a bit science-fiction, a bit zombie horror, but above all else it is a love story. To quote the very first blogger who got her hands on it: "(The Survivors is) a layered, touching, powerful story of humanity and survival." 

The story takes place in the Waikato region of New Zealand, ten years on after a killer plague erased the majority of our species from the face of the earth. 99.5% of humanity is either dead, or has been reduced to the (mostly) harmless, lumbering undead. The few people lucky enough to be immune to the disease have spent the last ten years struggling to live amongst the ruins of a dead society. 

For some people, the time hasn't been so bad. For other people - like our heroine and narrator, Sandrine McDermott - the last ten years have been a living hell. Without rules to keep people civilized, there's nothing to keep a lone female safe except her own wits. Sometimes, that's just not enough. 

Life has not been kind to her. In fact, it's safe to say that fate's been kind of a bastard. However, it's also a whimsical bastard. When Sandy injures herself and is forced to go looking for the medication she needs to survive, she finds herself on the receiving end of kindness in the last place she expects. She's forced her to reassess her place in the world, and her own humanity. 

The Survivors is a four-part tale that follows Sandy's evolution from the psychologically-damaged wreck she is at the beginning of the story, to the true heroine that we need to preserve our species from extinction. 

Somehow, some way, she must go from being one of the hopeless wanderers, to being our hope for a new tomorrow.
