Jubal Slate has stopped a madman controlling an undead army and survived the destruction of the aliens responsible for the plague that decimated humanity. Now he leads a small band of survivors across the shattered landscape of America, fighting off the forces of the living and the dead. The group races north pursuing a legend, a post-apocalyptic fairy tale: a town protected from the walking dead.
Something bad has happened in Nevada. Rumors fly about plagues and secret government experiments. In Serenity, New Mexico, Deputy Sheriff Jubal Slate has his hands full. It seems that half the town, including his mother and his boss, are sick from an unusual malady. Even more worrisome is the oddly-colored dawn sky. Soon, the townspeople start dying. And they won't dead.
Invaders from another world have used demonic technology to raise an unholy conquering army of the living dead. These necros destroyed Jubal Slate’s home and everyone he loved. Now the only thing left for Slate is payback. No matter how far he has to go or how many undead warriors he must slaughter, Slate and his motley band of followers will stop at nothing to end the reign of the aliens.
