The apocalypse has been and gone. The age of humanity is at an end, and horrifying insect aliens from the depths of infinite space are the new masters of the Earth!

What does resistance mean, when there’s nothing left to fight for?

That’s what Wayne, Jeremiah, and Soham, the only survivors of the devastating invasion, struggle with – seeking a future that justifies their presence on a ruined world.

As they pick through the remains of human civilization, keeping out of reach of the bugs, none of them suspect that they are part of a much larger plan, one that involves another, unknown, survivor!
