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.

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.
It's perfect… as long as you can ignore the mindless monstrosities roaming the streets, the bloodthirsty creatures ruling the night, and the insane, power-hungry human survivors.
Lance York awakens in a quarantined hospital as a devastating plague spreads worldwide, devolving mankind into unspeakable horrors. With the help of an unlikely ally, the sexy, snarky Cass, Lance must navigate through the collapsing city, striving to escape the madness of the unfolding apocalypse around them.
