An ancient evil worshipped as a god in the depths of time has awakened and turned the world into a desolate and dark place. The remnants of humanity are forced to take shelter where they can, hiding from the ravenous walking dead and their inhuman shepherds, the Locust People, and the Ancient Enemy's lieutenants, the Lords of Night.
In one of New York City's underground tunnels is a young man with a secret, a growing power he can use against the seething tides of walking dead and their sadistic overseers. His name is Jack, and he has taken it as his mission to retrieve an artifact from the Ancient Enemy's past to free the world. Jack is untested...but he has help. The last group of Special Forces operatives is on his side.
With the world at stake, the team must trek through dead-infested highways from New York to Washington D.C. and back, keeping out of the watchful eye of the Lords of Night, who have sensed Jack's presence. Surrounded on all sides by the dead and the diabolical, and with Jack's humanity slipping away as his power grows, the team's clock is counting down to zero and they no longer know who they can trust.
Madness. Betrayal. Temptation. The last of humanity is on the brink, and it all comes down to one thing: what will Jack have to become to defeat an evil older than mankind?

This is my homage to everything cool* when I was growing up, and mostly, a thank-you to my senior year English teacher, Mrs. Isela V. Gonzalez. For our class, we were studying Chaucer, and our writing exercise was to make up a pigrim, and then the story they would tell on the way.
She didn't require much of us. I think it was twenty lines of verse for the profile, and fifty or one hundred for the story? Whatever it was, I put it off until the last minute, and the weekend before it was due I jumped through my ass to get it done. Turns out, I had a knack for the writing. She enjoyed it (ar acted as if she did, hah) and my course was set. We lost her this last year, and I never took my chance to send her a copy of this (as well as my two co-authored works with D.L. Snell) and it's a regret I carry with me.
This was great fun to write, and I learned a lot along the way. Hoefuly, this process isn't that transparent in the reading of. Enjoy!
* - cool stuff:
The Lone Ranger
Army of Darkness
The Dark Tower
