The zombies gather in hordes that pose a threat to human existence. When Jane is bitten by a shambler in Nicodemus, Kansas, Katherine reluctantly leaves her friend behind. However, Jane discovers she is immune, thanks to a vaccine given to her by a scientist willing to sacrifice anything – and anyone – to create a cure for this plague.
