Human civilisation may be on the verge of collapse…

Moscow, 2027. Ten years after the outbreak of a catastrophic zombie virus, the world’s population is divided into three species: humans, zombies – who are also known as ‘the revived’, and quazis – zombies who have reached an elevated, benevolent status and even help humans to combat their more dangerous counterparts.

The narrator, Denis, is a human police officer. During the apocalypse ten years earlier, he was forced to kill his own girlfriend after she was attacked by a zombie, and now devotes his solitary life to their destruction. He is not any fonder of quazis, despite the fact that they are intelligent, gentle beings, and even vegetarian. However, on a new murder investigation, Denis is obliged to work alongside a quazi officer, Mikhail, and the two gradually learn to respect and even like one another. Together they stumble upon a conspiracy that is being hatched by the quazis and threatens the future of the human race.
