“The author who influenced me the most as a writer was Richard Matheson. Books like I Am Legend were an inspiration to me.” —Stephen King

Robert Neville is the last living man on Earth.

The sole survivor of a vampire pandemic, he spends his days hunting the undead through the ruins of Los Angeles. By night, he is the hunted; the undead are hungry for Neville's blood, and will stop at nothing to get it.

As Robert works to understand the virus and find a cure for the affliction, his days of isolation and fear turn into months, then years. But as a new society spawns from the ashes of Robert’s world, he risks becoming the very thing he hunts: a legend.
