Life after a zombie apocalypse is tough, especially for the zombies. After an event known as 'The Rising', where everybody who died in the year 2015 has risen from the dead, an inevitable Zombie war breaks out as the human race battles to rid the planet of brain eating Zombies. When the war is eventually won by the living with heavy losses on both sides, the remaining undead are herded up and put in a holding center where Norfolk, now ravaged and destroyed by the war, used to be. Scientists discover a chemical compound which subdues the Zombie craving for brains and the government subsequently decides to release these Partially Deceased Syndrome (PDS) sufferers back into the community they had recently tried to destroy. Here is where the story begins as we follow Keiren Walker, a young PDS sufferer, as he is returned back to his parents in the sleepy Lancashire village of Yealand. His attempts to reintegrate back into society are the catalyst and window to a 'them and us society' with radicals on both sides, both with their own agendas and incitements for war.
