When you’re hunted, you can either run. Or you can become the hunter.
Rebel teenage warrior Ava Phoenix is being hunted by her mortal enemy, Cort Pleasant. If captured, she’ll be dragged to Aragonia, tied to a stake, and burned. But all Ava wants to do is find a new home and live in peace.
Together with her boyfriend Beau and the Braves, she finds the perfect spot—the Oasis. It’s a veritable Garden of Eden. But as Ava and her Braves prepare to protect their new home, they discover there’s a terrifying reason the Oasis has been abandoned.
Among the ancient ruins something awakens. A virus that blurs the lines between enemies and friends. As it spreads it becomes clear that there are no friends or foes anymore—there are only the living and the infected. And unless enemies can work together, the living may not be around much longer. Welcome to the end of the world.

“Quiet!” bellowed the guard behind Ava, shoving her.
Ava stumbled forward. She lowered her gaze to the ground, putting one foot in front of the other. The corridor began to angle upward toward the light of the arena. Each step moved her closer to the light until she was walking in the full heat of the sun blasting through twenty-foot-tall iron gates that opened on the arena’s killing field. Captured warriors were already packed tight up against the gate, quiet, sweating, and anxious to begin what could be the last fight of their lives. Ava and her cellmates stood along the back of the crowd. The two Ahasazi from her cell looked at her and the Ronin woman. “When the gates open, we run for the wagon to get our weapons,” said one. The other added, “Do whatever you have to do to get there, because without weapons, we’re dead.”
Ava nodded. She closed her eyes, filled her lungs with a deep breath, and then exhaled slowly. Then she opened her eyes, waiting for the gate to be unlocked. Raising on her toes, she looked over the heads of the warriors, focusing on the gate across the arena. Beau was pressed against it, along with Cole. She lowered off her toes and rolled her neck, cracking vertebrae.
The gate screeched open. She stuck close to the Ronin woman and the two Ahsazi warriors shoving their way forward. A bearded warrior on her right took exception to being shoved and whirled, throwing a punch at her. She slipped under it, kneed him in the groin, and kept moving, accelerating into a sprint toward a wagon piled with weapons in the middle of the arena.
