Connor Collins is a young adolescent boy struggling with recent bullying issues. His figure is short, while his features are not at all masculine, a perfect target for bullies. His intelligence is expanding with knowledge while also learning to avoid these painful situations. Yet, Conner can only go so far without an interruption that causes a domino affect of chaos to travel around his small private boarding school.
It started with a simple rat catching the corner of Collins eye, then Brooklyn Evens appearing out of no where, and not to mention that the student population is decreasing without proper reasoning.
It then leads to a team of adolescent children to take on the most horrifying infection of their lives. If they do not stick together - they will die. If they do not escape - they will die. If they do not get infected - then they will be eaten alive by the beasts outside.
In the middle of this bloodbath there are links directly leading to Colin himself. Showing that perhaps he is more important than a simple school boy hiding behind a book. Perhaps he is something more than anyone else can imagine, and with that leads to risks. Risks of both death, and infinite pain.
People are after Colin, people want him gone - dead. He does not know that people want him to be descended into the depths of Hell.
Colin soon figures out, that perhaps, he is running out of time. That he has zero lives left until his very death.
