'One thing about the Deadlands, once you've been out there, surrounded by the dead, the living aren't anywhere near as scary ...'. What if the people you love are not who you think they are? What if you have a destiny that no one knows about? When seventeen-year-old Lele de la Fontein and her brother are forced to move to the city enclave to live with their estranged father and bitchy, war-hero stepmother, she has no idea her world is about to implode. Stuck in a school run by the Resurrectionists - a fanatical sect who worship the sinister, all-powerful Guardians - Lele dreams of escape. But she's trapped. No one can survive in the Deadlands, the shattered remains of Cape Town's suburbs, without being turned into one of the living dead. No one, that is, except for a renegade group known as the Mall Rats. But who are they? And are they the answer to Lele's prayers, or is she about to find herself in more trouble than even she can imagine?
