Description

The First Rule of Torching: Cleanse with fire. Josh is by far the best zombie Torcher around--at least, he is in his virtual-reality zombie-hunting game.

But luckily for Josh, zombies exist only in the virtual world. The real zombie war is now more than fifteen years in the past, and the battle to defeat the deadly epidemic that devastated his family--and millions of others--is the stuff of history lessons. The Third Rule of Torching: You can't bring them back. Charlie is the top-ranked player in the game.

Josh is thrilled. But the more involved he gets, the more he realizes that not everything is what it seems.
