Getting to Etna Station is all that matters, with the world rapidly collapsing around them, Mike and company make a desperate trek to reach what they believe to be a safe haven. Can they out run the demons that chase them? Will they succumb to Knox and his tyrannical army or Payne, a revenge-bent vampire? New friends will be made along the way while some old ones will fall. If they make it, will it be all they hoped or just another nightmare?
