In a society ruled by sanctions and curfews, Dr. Meghan Forester emerges as the youngest and most promising scientist to join the fight against Makanza - the deadly virus that's ravaged the world.
Inside Compound 26, a giant government-controlled research facility, Meghan's new job involves studying the Kazzies, the rare survivors who carry the virus and now exhibit supernatural powers. But as her work enfolds, Meghan's horrified at the brutal and unethical practices the Kazzies are subjected to. And most surprisingly, she falls in love with one.
Faced with growing conflict over helping the Kazzies versus following the Compound's strict policies, Meghan must choose: obey the government's unethical practices or risk everything to save the only man she's ever loved.
For once, Davin stood still. He stared at the men. It was the first time I got a good look at him.
My mouth dropped.
He looked normal, like any other human.
If I had seen him on the street, I would have guessed he was like me or Amy. Healthy, whole, untouched by Makanza. Nothing about him screamed that he’d been contaminated.
My eyes traveled up his frame. He was larger than average build, tall, but not so tall he’d draw attention. His skin was tan, like he’d just been out in the sun, which I knew was impossible. The muscles visible beneath his torn clothing were well-defined, but by no means bulky. His incredible strength and speed had to come from something within. When my eyes reached his face, my breath caught. The emotion on his face…
I’d never seen anything like it.
Davin’s features, the straight nose, high cheekbones, and deep-set eyes, would normally be attractive, even strikingly handsome, but they had twisted and contorted into an expression that could only be described as absolute rage.
