The Beast at the Gate
by R.A. Baker
Following a bizarre lightning storm, a young college student named Rayna Powell finds herself alone in a desolate, red wasteland zone called the Band. In making her way out, she realizes the Band was only the beginning of her ordeal. Trapped in a strange land where danger and death lurk behind every corner, Rayna sees "magic" everywhere—the very watch she wears now glows with unknown energies.
