    DescriptionIt’s called Project NOAH: a secret government experiment designed to weaponize the human body. But the experiment goes horribly awry when twelve test subjects escape, spreading a virus that turns human beings into something else—something hungrier, deadlier, and seemingly indestructible. The thirteenth test subject, a six-year-old girl, is rescued by an FBI agent. Together they flee to the mountains of Oregon, cut off from civilization as the disastrous repercussions of Project NOAH are unleashed upon the world.
