In a steel-and-lead encased bunker a Special Forces soldier waits on his final orders.
On the surface a bacterium has turned 90% of the population into hyper-aggressive predators.
Now Captain Lee Harden must leave the bunker and venture into the wasteland to rekindle a shattered America.
Wounded and weaponless, he has stumbled upon a group of survivors who may be his last hope. But a tragedy in the group causes a deep rift and forces him into action.
And in the chaos of a world overrun by infected, Lee is pursued by a new threat: someone who will stop at nothing to keep him from his sworn duty.
The United Eastern States has fallen.
Lee Harden and a band of survivors have escaped President Briggs's invasion force. Their only options are to attack Briggs while his forces are delayed on the east coast...or admit that they've been beaten, and go into hiding. For Lee Harden, the decision seems obvious.
But as disparate forces, factions, and loyalties begin to converge under the pressure cooker of all-out civil war, Lee is forced to confront not only insurmountable odds, but also the darkest parts of himself that he has left buried in the years since this all began.
The United Eastern States is crumbling.
The fragile house of cards that Lee Harden and Angela Houston have built has begun to fall. Lee is up against a ticking clock, as he is recalled from Texas and given the last thing in the world that he wants: a promotion. Forced into a command role, Major Harden is thrust into a sharp learning curve that goes against every instinct he's developed over years of fighting.
While Lee races to find his footing in a mire of shifting loyalties and opposing goals, Safe Zones are being overrun by massive hordes of primals exhibiting strange behaviors and uncanny levels of intelligence, and Greeley is moving towards an invasion of the UES. The envoys from Canada and the United Kingdom know it--but they're refusing to take sides and give Lee the intelligence he desperately needs. As the tides of war reach the doors of the UES, horrific secrets are revealed that will change the future of their fight for survival.
Friends become enemies, and enemies become allies.
But no matter what happens, no matter what--or who--he loses, Lee can't let it break him.
He must remain defiant to the last.
Lee Harden is out for blood.
After a month, the cartel is looking over their shoulders and jumping at shadows, worried about the madmen in their backyard. Madmen who seem obsessed with little else but killing cartel members.
Lee continues to claw his way towards revenge, searching for a target to strike at, or a person to destroy, that will force his enemies to reveal themselves. And nothing is going to stop him. Not even Abe.
In the United Eastern States, things are crumbling around Angela. Safe Zones are dropping out of communication, and no one seems to have any faith in her since the fall of Fort Bragg. Carl Gilliard's methods of purging the dissenters grow harsher and harsher, and Angela is forced to run interference for him, denying allegations of misconduct. She needs to get them back to Fort Bragg, to show that they aren't losing this war. But she's not sure they can get there before everything falls apart.
Working fast--and sometimes unsafely--to secure the route back to Fort Bragg, Sam Ryder and his squad make a grim discovery that might be the start of an evolutionary jump for the primals--and a threat to the survival of the human race.
In this thrilling and gritty third installment to the Lee Harden Series, the only thing you can be certain of is that things are about to change.
After being sequestered to a bunker to recover from his wounds, Lee Harden is finally going topside with his fellow Project Hometown Coordinator, Terrence "Tex" Lehy. Lee wants to ally the UES with Texas, in order to combat the threat of a powerful oil cartel to the south. But Tex's methods raise serious questions, and Lee quickly discovers that Texas has its own set of problems.
In the Fort Bragg Safe Zone, the conflict with the Lincolnists is rapidly escalating. Master Sergeant Carl Gilliard has just returned, and he’s intent on destroying the Lincolnists, using whatever means is necessary. Angela is caught in the middle, unable to reconcile her sense of civil morality with her desire for justice.
One thing remains certain: before there is peace, there will be blood.
Their honor will be bought in blood and pain.
The Camp Ryder Hub is broken. Lee is nowhere to be found, and his allies are scattered across the state, each of them learning that their missions will not be as easy as they thought. Inside the walls of Camp Ryder, a silent war is brewing, between those few that still support Lee's vision of rebuilding, and the majority that support Jerry's desire for isolation. But this war will not remain silent for long. And in this savage world, everyone will have to make a choice.
To keep their morals. Or keep their lives.
But the enemies never stop coming, and the race has no finish line.
It has been three months since Captain Lee Harden found the survivors at Camp Ryder. With winter looming, Lee is on the verge of establishing Camp Ryder as a hub of safety and stability in the region. But not everyone agrees with Lee's mission. . .or his methods. Growing tensions between camp leadership are coming to a head, and as Lee struggles amid the dissention and controversy, new revelations about the infected threaten to destroy everything he has worked for.
