Dr. Jebediah Stone had never believed in zombies until he had to shoot one. A very few Alpha zombies rule smaller hunting packs with the surviving humans as prey. Now, they’re mutating into a new species, mortuus venator – dead hunters, capable of reproducing. Jeb Stone searches for his missing wife, taken by the military because she is immune. She and other captured munies supply the blue juice, a temporary vaccine, from their blood. It is a new, dangerous world he finds himself, filled with zoms, the military and their Judgment Day Protocol, merciless Hunters who capture munies for a shot of blue juice, street gangs and famine. Has the world turned on mankind? Is Mortuus Venator the new ruler of earth?
