When a disease wipes out most of the human race, those few who remain find themselves in a fight for survival. With civilization crumbling, dark forces are emerging from the shadows to threaten what little order still exists. As evening falls and the infected lie in wait just beyond the safety of their encampments, one group must make a stand against extinction. Armed with courage and fortified by community, they will face down death itself to protect all they hold dear. One man struggles with his own demons as he leads others into battle against evil; love is found where it’s least expected; sacrifice becomes hope on an unimaginable scale – and humanity hangs in the balance… Order Now.
