In this third and final installment of the Eaters series, it is closing in on a year since the beginning of the epidemic that started last July 4th weekend. After joining the Resistance to fight against the diabolical organization that started the apocalypse and controls the flesh-eating undead, Cheryl Malone and her wounded companion have succeeded in their attempt to do some major damage to the group's stronghold in Sedona, Arizona. But now, as the pair flees towards shelter with some old friends at Divine Sundaes, an ice cream shop turned church, they see the ominous sign of ashes flying through the air. Fear causes their hearts to pound as their Jeep inches forward. Both are on high alert as they know this is still a world controlled by dark forces and filled with hungry ghouls that lurk around every corner. Neither have any idea of the tragedies yet to come…or what's in store for them at the hands of One New Earth.
