Casualties: a Zombie Story
"Ya know, just because someone's dead, it doesn't make them any less human. Everyone's so fake like, 'Seth was such a great guy.' No, he wasn't. Not all the time."
Casualties: a Zombie Story tells the story of Carter Garrison, an American soldier home on leave following the mysterious death of his brother in Afghanistan.
Not only does Carter struggle with the effects of his brother’s death but he is forced into uncomfortable reunions with the people he left behind when he enlisted three years ago after a one-night stand with his brother's fiance, Grace.
To make complicated matters worse, Carter discovers his dead brother Seth has been re-animated by a bizarre Prothero-related virus and is roaming the woods on the outskirts of town, infecting those unlucky enough to cross his path.
Unfortunately, the virus makes it’s way into the sleepy town of Goldendale, WA, and quickly spreads. Now Carter, along with friends and family, must fight the walking dead to escape with their lives.
And the first place they're headed? The military training facility across the Columbia Gorge located in The Dalles, OR. To get some answers.
