Fortunately for them, they are skilled survivors, and have the chance of living outside the fort's protective walls. Unfortunately, their predicament is only growing worse.
As their first supply run ends, and a chance encounter with an infamous plant walker brings Rose and Dakota into the limelight, the powers that be decide to orchestrate a task for the survivors—one that may save humanity, or potentially destroy them all.
