Short description

Two dinstinct cultures clash in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where humanity has been driven to the brink of extinction by the Gabriel Virus. In this struggle for survival, Fate plays no favorites to Tanner Kline, a man charged with protecting his settlement, and Lila, a tribal warrioress whose thirst for revenge is just as deadly as the remnants of the virus that lurks in her genetic makeup.

Extended description

150 years after the fall of civilization: Enter a post-apocalyptic world where the cities of man are crumbling necropolises left to the ravages of time and nature, burgeoning settlements cling to life, and the remnants of humanity exist as two disparate cultures locked in a waltz of survival and death. Into this world comes Tanner Kline, a man charged with protecting his community from Spewers, a primitive tribe whose bloodline carries the vestiges of the virus which pushed mankind to the brink of extinction. On what should have been a routine patrol, his path crosses with Lila, a proud huntress whose heart simmers with resentment for the men who killed her husband. Men like Tanner Kline. Together, they spiral onto a collision course with an unertain future where their individual destinies and the fates of their respective cultures hang in the balance.
