In a wasteland populated by monstrous creatures and marauding armies, Earth’s last survivors have been drawn into a final battle between good and evil. There’s Sister, who discovers a strange and transformative glass artifact in the destroyed Manhattan streets, Joshua Hutchins, the pro wrestler who takes refuge from the nuclear fallout at a Nebraska gas station, and Swan, a young girl possessing special powers, who travels alongside Josh to a Missouri town to aid healing and recovery. But the ancient force behind Earth’s devastation is looking for recruits for its relentless army, and Swan may be its first target.
