In the After by Demitria Lunetta
Expected Publication Date: June 25, 2013
They hear the most silent of footsteps.
They are faster than anything you’ve ever seen.
And They won’t stop chasing you…until you are dead.
Amy is watching TV when it happens, when the world
is attacked by Them. These vile creatures are rapidly
devouring mankind. Most of the population is overtaken,
but Amy manages to escape — and even rescue “Baby,”
a toddler left behind in the chaos. Marooned in Amy’s
house, the girls do everything they can to survive — and
avoid Them at all costs.
After years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued
and taken to New Hope, a colony of survivors living
in a former government research compound. While at
first the colony seems like a dream with plenty of food,
safety, and shelter, New Hope slowly reveals that it is
far from ideal. And Amy soon realizes that unless things
change, she’ll lose Baby — and much more.
