The Awakened Synopsis:
For Zoey Valentine, the roughest parts of her life are having to go to one of the many self defense classes her dad makes her take and dealing with Ash Matthews.
That is, until the Z virus hits.
It wipes out a third of the population in a matter of weeks. If that weren’t frightening enough, the bodies of the victims disappear and suddenly reappear, awakened from their dead state. They’re faster, smarter, and they work together to get the one thing they crave – human flesh.
The United States is in a panic and the government decides to do the unthinkable: bomb every major city across the country overrun with the Awakened.
Now Zoey is on the run, with her dad and Ash, desperate to find a place of safety amongst the ruined remains of the country.
The Sanctuary Synopsis
Zoey Valentine is finally safe. Tucked away miles underground in the fortified community of Sanctuary, she no longer has to worry about Awakened – flesh eating zombies – coming after her and her boyfriend, Ash.
But Sanctuary is different than she had imagined. She may be safe, but she feels trapped, buried in a hole in the ground, waiting for time to pass. Sekhmet, the evil corporation behind the Awakened, is still out there and nothing can stop the nightmares that plague Zoey every night. Sanctuary feels like a ticking time bomb and she’s starting to feel suffocated.
Then suddenly, citizens of Sanctuary begin to go missing until their bodies turn up right on their doorstep, mutilated by Awakened. Each one is tagged with a note, a warning, signed by Razi Cylon, the leader of Sekhmet, who Zoey saw die months before.
Sanctuary is in a panic and while Zoey and her friends are ready to fight, the leaders are burying themselves further into hiding. Zoey is angry and helpless, until Razi Cylon threatens something really close to Zoey and all hell breaks loose.
Sekhmet has existed for far too long and Zoey is tired of running and hiding. Razi and the Awakened need to go down, even if she has to take them down one by one.
