Mason Thomas wasn't prepared when the devastation began that morning. No one was.
Six days ago reports of a mysterious illness began surfacing around the globe. The infection took hold quickly and destroyed everything in its path. The infected were seen attacking and actually devouring their victims. Those unfortunate enough to be caught out in the open were the first to fall. Millions perished every hour.
The world was told not to panic, that there wasn't anything to worry about, that these were isolated events. This morning, as he fought to return to his family, Mason Thomas quickly realized that nothing was what it seemed, the world had been forever changed.
The Dead Years follows Mason Thomas, a separated husband and father of one, as he and a small group of survivors fight to stay alive at the end of the world.
