Amelia is an ordinary woman. But one morning her existence is turned upside down when she realizes that she is a zombie; a walking corpse.
Her condition isn’t strange these days; for the past ten years the undead have been mingling happily with the living. The ‘illness’ has become commonplace and its treatment is an everyday occurrence.
Amelia will go from the shock of finding that she’s infected to having to deal with her doctor; she will be kidnapped by an organization that fixes fights between the living dead and smuggles human remains; and she will face up to a possible apocalypse. Amelia will start to take control of her life after death.
El despertar is a novel that combines social commentary, cruel irony and Swiftian fantasy with uproarious pulp melodrama and gore.
