My name is Scarlett.My job is to kill. And I'm damn good at my job.Fifty years ago, a series of catastrophic disasters ended modern civilisation as we knew it. When the world was on the brink of starvation, a pill made to save us instead turned most of the human population into blood-thirsty monsters.Now, what's left of humanity lives behind a fifty-foot high wall, in a town dubbed The Haven.On the day I was born, I was donated as a sacrificial soldier to the last human army. Every waking moment of my life is dedicated to learning how to kill the millions of monsters now occupying England.The Haven, as well as its residents, are governed by an order known as 'The Verity' .They rule with cruelty, violence and threats of banishment if ever disobeyed.We are told when to eat. When to sleep. When to kill and when to die.But when I'm ordered to give up the man I love and instead marry the cruellest and most tyrannical man I have ever known, I make an impossible choice.A choice that leads me to a terrible truth.That the Verity has a far darker agenda for humanity than any human-eating monster could ever have.Ideal for fans of "The Walking Dead" and "The Hunger Games."If you love a fierce female lead, forbidden love, life and death stakes and plenty of action, you will love The Verity!
