Twenty five years after the living dead swept the globe, the zombie wars are over. Whole continents have been cleared of the undead but left uninhabited due to nuclear fallout. Humanity has begun to regain its footing in small, isolated communities scattered around the globe. Anthony is a school teacher planning a vacation getaway with his sister, Riley, and their friends, Troi and Evan. When a stranger carrying hints of Anthony s past walks into New Harmony, Anthony and his friends set out on a life-changing trek. Their goal: to find the mythical Bear and his army. Their destination: the Outlands, vast stretches of ravaged territory beyond the borders of New Harmony. But the Outlands are not a safe place and the four youths are not alone in them. What starts as a journey of self-understanding quickly degenerates into a brutal struggle for survival as the friends encounter zombies, mutants, and the evil alive in their world.
