First Came the Criers.
Susan Winters was the leader of a group. She was sharp, she was fast, she was calculating. Dakota Winters was the eldest of the group. She was smart, she was instinctive, and she was sharp-witted.
Then the Rusters.
Rosaline Wynters was the glue of the group. She was quick, she was reflexive, she was good with a gun. Michael Wynters was the fighter. He was fast, he was flexible, he was careful. Katrina Wynters was the youngest. She was sneaky, she was silent, and she was light.
Then came the Shriekers.
Troy Mayor was the brute. He was strong, he was creative, and he had nothing to lose.
And now their numbers are bigger.
The group wants to get to the Appalachian Mountains, where safety echoes. But to get there, they have to go through Vermont, which once had a population of 600 thousand.
