A new world offered Felicity Grant hope of riches, plentiful forests, and an arranged wedding engagement - but no one mentioned the monsters.
Felicity’s father squanders the family fortune, then decides to travel across the sea to build a new life. She leaves behind her world of airships and automatons for one of the horse-drawn buggies. When the Grants arrive at port, they find it deserted. Meals are half-eaten on the tables, and fires smolder in the cookhouse. However, the inhabitants are still out there, only they’ve changed - and they’re hungry.
The undead rotters tear through the steamship’s crew and passengers, and nothing seems to be able to stop them, not even cutting off their heads - Felicity knows; she tried. Seeking answers to destroying the rotters dressed in ragged uniforms tosses Felicity in the middle of a battle between the tribes native to the land and the high-tech militia seeking to conquer them.
With desolation the only thing remaining for her in the old world, Felicity must pick up a gun and make sure she survives the new one.
