An inexplicable sickness. A small town cut off from the world. A community of survivors forges family out of despair, fighting and grasping for hope.
A mysterious plague grips the small village of Pilam, sapping its victims of strength, draining the color from their eyes, killing all promise until their last breath. Only the young are immune. The world has quarantined Pilam without pity, but beyond the barricades and walls of soldiers—the manifestation of a nation’s terror—there are rumors of a cure. Dunka must take on the daunting task of escaping Pilam to find that cure for his siblings and save them before it is too late.
