I came into this world like most people do: screaming.
"Don't worry," a kind voice tells me. "You're just dying."
Everything hurts. My skin is all icy and bitter. My heart's a heavy stone the earth is trying to wrench from my chest and my vision is an angry haze--I am blind.
"Your eyes are adjusting, girl. Just relax."
Dying?--Did she just saying I'm dying?
"Undying," she amends. "You're undying. But really it's sort of the same."
This is where Winter was born, and how.
Whoever she is.
She's dead. In fact, the whole world's dead. Every single person, apparently. Unburied and reimagined into a beautiful living-dead woman called Winter, she is doomed to spend the rest of eternity in a quaint, peaceful city with no hunger, no sickness and no bills to pay. Her Second Life is perfect in every way possible.
So why is she so bent on destroying it all?
After angering the mayor, befriending rebel headless teenagers and igniting romance with a dark and brooding neighbor, she finds herself wrestling madly with a First Life she cannot remember and this Second Life she cannot accept. Not to mention the maniacal army of rotting corpses who want her dead. Again.
But none of that matters in comparison to an even bigger problem. There's a guest in her house. A rude, good-looking man on the run... a man with a heartbeat.
