This story is a spinoff from the popular Light at The End trilogy.
In May 2065, a coach was the means to escape death for twenty-five people in the Scottish Highlands. Following a terrifying ride at high speed, they found safety inside a disused railway tunnel. However, while adjusting to their post-apocalyptic world the tourists discovered a killer in their midst.
The suspect escaped captivity to live in the wilderness, but within a year, she gave birth to Sylvia; ‘from the forest’. Sylvia reached the age of twenty without a peer group, which meant that she had no one with whom to compare herself.
She had no notion of how special she might be.
A young man from the survivors in Aviemore arrived in Sylvia’s territory snooping around. He was in for a shock.
In the following weeks and months, mysteries would be solved, and relationships would develop unexpectedly.
Like the other stories, there are no zombies in ‘Sylvia’, however, death only requires a step in the wrong direction.
