Nineteen-year-old Mora lives in a world where the dead have walked for the last 60 years. She's on a mission to save her village from the relentless greyskins, and there is only one man who can help her: Jeremiah of Screven.
As Mora travels the wastelands, she discovers a power within herself, a power she believes no other human possesses. That is, until she meets others like her – the ones who call themselves the Starborn. These super-humans are on a mission also: to destroy the undead greyskins, and take down the greedy Jeremiah.
Mora must now choose between the one who can keep her family safe, and those who can show her who she truly is.
