I am doing something different this time. I am going to give you brief bios on the characters of DEAD: Onset (Book One of the New DEAD series).

Meet Michael Killian.
At nine years old, Michael is the youngest member of the initial group. In addition to being the youngest, Michael is also autistic.

He fell in such a way that Michael, who often stares down at the ground when around others unless he feels VERY comfortable, was looking down into the man’s face. He saw the man open his eyes and instantly noticed that they looked different from any eyes that he’d ever seen before. He was fascinated by them until the man sat up and vanished from his field of vision.
