"That's what you think we are? Soldiers?"
"Mrs Archer, it's been a war since day one."
Kimberly Archer fought her way to the border of Rustwood looking for an escape. Instead, she uncovered the town's greatest secret - and with it, brought the attention of the old and new queens down on her head.
Now she's on the run, fighting enemies on all sides while struggling to control the creature living inside her chest. Her powers are growing but she won't have time to flex them if the pretender queen's army of repurposed dead catches up with her. And with Fitch, Chan and Goodwell scattered across Rustwood in the aftermath of Kimberly's border crossing, will she be able to get the crew back together before the pretender crushes them all?
The penultimate story in the RUST horror saga is a tangled web of mystery, body horror and psychological thriller in the style of King, Lynch and Lovecraft.
