When the Zombie Apocalypse hits, the power will fail, within two days the grid will go down. Everyone knows that. Gary Sykes knew it too. From his mundane job at Tres Hombres substation, Gary saw the outbreak coming, knew that the horrific zombie attacks being reported on the news were only going to get worse. The plague was here and the days ahead were going to be dark, except Gary Sykes had a plan, a plan that just might keep the lights burning a little longer.
When Nicole Bennett and her band of survivors had to fight for their lives, they could do it with the lights on thanks to the efforts and sacrifice of one man. This is his story.
The Last Stand of Gary Sykes
It has been eight months since the the zombie virus swept through Tres Hombres Substation and changed Beverly Sanders' life forever. She, her husband Mark, and their young son Tommy have tried to hang on while all around them the world fell victim to one zombie horde after another. A simple message, broadcast twice a day on every channel has drawn them out.
"This is Nicole Bennett. We are survivors. To anybody that can hear us, and can get here, we offer you refuge..."
On the road, they meet Sheriff Jacob Miller and learn that not all who heard the message believed it was real. Jacob roams the Deadlands, chasing demons of his own and following the horde that took his town. Will he help Beverly and her family reach Colorado, or will they fall victim to his guilt and sadness?
After the zombie apocalypse, Gary Sykes gave survivors a chance. Nicole Bennett and her Colorado safe haven will give them a hope.
All they have to do is get there.
