Lance York and his group of hardened survivors have spent nearly two years living on an island, isolated from the horrors that devoured the world long ago. After a deluge of hurricanes force them to flee back to the mainland, they struggle for weeks to sail along the coast of what used to be the United States.
When they run out of food and supplies, they enter the long-dead husk of Baltimore. They discover that humanity has clustered into a few encampments, struggling to survive against the monstrosities that own the night.
Within hours of running ashore, Lance and his friends become embroiled in a war between the remaining shreds of mankind and the ever-evolving creatures that dwell in the darkness.
But their problems have just begun.
Each night, creatures ascend from Baltimore’s sewers, swarming the building and testing the defenses for weaknesses. These aren’t the monstrosities Lance and Cass first encountered years earlier—they’ve evolved. Their laments fill the darkness like a primitive language. A leader has emerged from the hordes, guiding the infected in their assaults on the remaining humans.
With opposing factions of survivors attacking them by day, and legions of the nightmarish horrors prowling through the night, Lance and Cass must make an uneasy alliance with The Light’s residents to defend their loved ones.
When two cannibalistic, gravely-wounded men stagger into the town of Gehenna all Hell breaks loose. Infamous outlaw Mad Dog McCall, stuck in the city jail, must fight for his life to escape. The lonely, intelligent, and snarky Karen must make horrific sacrifices to survive the night against the growing army of the dead.
Together they set upon a journey of biblical proportions, fighting against the living and the infected, hoping against hope to find a safe haven in the middle of Hell.
The Old West can't fathom the zombie hoard that is about to consume it.
