Yerusalem City is dying, and the king’s fear of invasion renders him blind to the starvation and plague ravaging his people. Only Yirmiyahu the prophet can see the truth; only he can hear God weeping behind her veil in the Temple. He knows the locked city gates will keep no one out - they will only keep the dead in.
Imperial Rome is a city on the brink, her citizens divided by class, religion - and zombies who feast upon the living. The patricians cling to the old faith, hoping to appease their ancestors by lavishing food upon the tombs of the dead, even as the poor starve in the streets. They blame the zombie outbreak on the Christians, certain they have angered the ancestors into unleashing this ungodly plague. Father Polycarp, however, believes differently. He is blessed with the Apostle’s Gift.

Devora is all too familiar with the unclean dead. She was there when her mother was pulled screaming from her tent by zombies. And when her mother rose, famished for flesh, it was Devora’s hand that ended her hunger. Now Devora has struck an uneasy alliance with those she fears most among the living. Yet the strangers in the land must stand together if they are to rid the land of its curse.
