A father seeks to protect his family from a religious cult in a postapocalyptic world

In the aftermath of an apocalyptic war that has destroyed society and incarnated an army of zombies, the remaining humans in a small town in Illinois are fighting for resources and even turning to cannibalism in order to survive. Out of this turmoil comes a man attempting to take control, by gathering and organizing both humans and zombies into a large and corrupt religious cult—and appointing himself their leader. When this hideous cult begins kidnapping unwitting humans, one father must try to protect his family, both from the dead that are now walking the earth and the ruthless man that claims to be a refuge from them. Gripping and original, this horror novel illustrates one man’s struggle to save humanity as it is on the verge of being eliminated forever.
