It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's a... dragon? When scientists brought everyone's favorite fairytale creature to life, people flocked to see them, including Zelda Rissland and her little brother Amory. Little did they know, the scientists had created more than just dragons--they created a deadly parasite. Wyrmrot is what they later called it. First, it ate your brain, and then it made you eat other people's brains. Zelda's brother is now one of the Rotters, and the only person from her former life she has left is Cooper Marotta, her childhood friend turned boyfriend. Together they have managed to carve out a safe place for themselves in a world turned upside down, but their little survivor group is rapidly running out of food. It is only a matter of time before they start turning on each other. When mysterious coordinates appear on a construction sign, Zelda knows there is only one thing to do. Follow them. Described as Jurassic Park meets Resident Evil, this is an upper Young Adult Science Fiction novel told in dual timelines. There will be plenty of action and adventure with a dash of romance. Warnings for occasional strong language and some mild gore. Rated PG-13. Updates every Wednesday morning (mountain standard time). Featured on Wattpad's Editor's Choice list 2/5/2019
