Cured of the Infection, their problems are only beginning. They face an epic struggle for their rights, their freedom, and even their lives.
George is one of the first to be cured. He still looks like one of the infected, but no longer hungers for human flesh.
He needs to find out what happened to his family. They may have survived. They may be infected. They may be dead. And if they are dead, it's likely he killed them.
George's search for the truth is obstructed by the hordes of infected, the militarised state and the fascistic Survivors League. His struggle for personal redemption becomes inextricably bound up with the fight for freedom for the cured.
Eventually, supported by a small group of cured and some enlightened survivors, he begins to see some hope for a new kind of community emerging from the carnage. But freedom will not be easily attained. And the killing is far from over.
