They thought the end came in a flash.
Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares hit the earth, killing most of the population.
The worst is yet to come.
Mark and Trina were there when it happened. They survived. But now a virus is spreading. A virus that fills humans with murderous rage.
There is no cure. No escape.
They’re convinced that there’s a way to save those who are left—if they can stay alive. Because in this new, devastated world, every life has a price. And to some you’re worth more dead than alive.
The end is only the beginning.

Let’s get out of here.” Trina motioned to Deedee to come along, and surprisingly, she did so
understand what the demons want. We don’t understand. We … don’t … understand. We dance, we sing, we make sacrifices.…” He fell to his knees, then collapsed to the ground, still pressing his hands against his head. He let out a long, pain-filled moan. Mark had reached the end of his patience. This was complete lunacy as far as he was concerned, and there was no way to deal with it rationally. He looked over at Alec, and he could tell by the fire in the man’s eyes that he was ready to take
