“A fierce post-apocalyptic story of war and loss, of nature’s vengeance, of survival in the face of overwhelming odds.” (Manhattan Book Reviews)
Two years have passed since humankind faced extinction: Two cousins are leaving the protection of their underground bunker after a cataclysmic war and unrelenting disease ravaged the Earth. On the other side of North America, a young survivalist is leaving the seclusion of his cabin deep in the woods, traveling with his aging canine companion, Winston. For individual reasons, these men are traveling east, to where a small number of survivors have established colonies.
But in the deep recesses of Haddonfield Maximum Security Prison, a wickedness emerges to defile what is left of humanity. With society coming to its knees, the opportunity is right for a terrible army to claim the world as their own, and inflict upon it the same pain they received in life.
Fueled by personal desires and the need to survive at all costs, those left alive face the final war. Although the colonists are not yet aware, the strength that resides inside them will soon be tested, and destiny will call for their fates to be forever intertwined.
