There are things worse than death.
Oncologist Russell Thorn knew that was true, but he never imagined anything as horrifying as the virus. The infection has turned humanity into creatures of vicious insanity. The survivors call them Creepers. By day, they relentlessly hunt humans and by night, they burrow underground to await daybreak from their earthen graves.
Doctor Thorn’s rescue by a group of young survivors is just the beginning of a nightmarish journey to find the last safe place on earth. It is a road where they will discover the limits of their own humanity and the costs of love, loyalty, and hope.
Time, however, is running out. The Creepers are evolving and gaining intelligence. Bullets alone will not save the survivors and each must decide the sacrifice they are willing to make to save their friends and to give humanity a chance for one more tomorrow.
The survivors had experienced things worse than death.
Like the loss of friends, infected cats, and the Creepers. Fleeing from the insanity of Fort New Hope, pursued by the relentless Infected, their hope rests on their love for one another and a far off place once called Wyoming. It is a thousand mile trek across a landscape of death and horror and a journey marked by impossible choices.
First, however, they must buy Dr. Thorn enough time to save their injured friend. In the remains of a small hospice, they will again, play out a dangerous race against the clock. For with each passing moment spent saving their friend, the Creepers draw closer.
