YA DYSTOPIAN (with zombies)
Sixteen year old Devonny, a genetically enhanced human enters Base to complete her mandatory soldier training and discovers that recruits infected with an infectious disease are being eliminated. She teams up with her fellow recruits to thwart the government but when they find out she is the cause of the disease and half-human, they no longer trust her. She must find a way to gain back the trust of the recruits and to stop the government from releasing a deadly virus designed to eliminate those they deem infected before it’s too late.
A small line of other sixteen-year olds I recognize from the Academy wait to be let in. A girl cries. One boy in particular catches my eye.
I pretend not to notice and avert my gaze making sure my screen is up. The racing of my heart magnifies the rush I feel at seeing him.
As soon as it’s my turn I stride up to the desk.
A soldier with short cropped hair on the sides and a long braid in the back is behind the desk. He has a large silver T on the right shoulder of his gray jumpsuit. He is Tagen.
He checks a list and directs me to another room with a jerk of his chin.
A metal exam table is in the center of the room. A woman stands near it with a clipboard in her hand. I take a shaky breath and step forward.
