Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Welcome to the Deadlands, where life is a lottery.

Since the apocalypse, Cape Town's suburbs have become zombie-infested Deadlands. Human survivors are protected from the living dead by sinister, shrouded figures - the Guardians. In return, five teenagers are 'chosen' and handed over to them for a mysterious purpose: this year, Lele de la Fontein's name is picked.

But Lele will not stick around and face whatever shady fate the Guardians have in store for her. She escapes, willing to take her chances in the Deadlands.

Alone, exiled and unable to return home, she runs into a misfit gang of renegade teens: Saint, a tough Batswana girl; Ginger, a wise-cracking Brit; and handsome Ash, a former child soldier. Under their tutelage, Lele learns how to seriously destroy zombies and together they uncover the corruption endemic in Cape Town, and come to learn the sickening truth about the Guardians . . .

Ten years have passed since Cape Town was destroyed in the war with the living dead. Survivors are protected by shrouded figures known as Guardians. But the price for protection is steep: the Guardians choose 5 teenagers for a secret purpose. Lesley is not prepared to the shady future the Guardians have in store for her. So she runs.
