Campbell returns to his "impressively convincing vision" (Publishers Weekly) of the apocalypse, as humanity's last hopes struggle to outlive the end of the world.
Leading the U.S.S. Nimitz survivors has forced Father Xavier Church to make some hard decisions, but he's protected his flock. Only, his fortress is about to fall, and, this time, he might not be able to save them all.
Most people lost everyone they loved to the walking dead, but Evan Tucker didn't have anything to lose. The folks on the Nimitz are the closest family he's ever had. He'll fight to his last breath to make sure nothing comes between them—no matter whether it's the undead or the living.
Coast Guard captain Elizabeth Kidd has always been a consummate professional, the opposite of her cruel pirate ancestor of the same name. But the Omega Virus didn't just change people into zombies; for some, the change was more subtle, and much more nefarious.
As the safe-haven of the Nimitz is besieged by vicious marauders and terrifying Hobgoblins, they come up against the most deadly obstacle they've faced yet, one they have no chance of defeating—the cruel whims of nature itself.
