When civilization has gone, who needs zombies to be scared of?
“I’m 18, going on death . . . and this is the age of terror.”
Months since the virulent flu-like pandemic known as "SuperSARS" wiped out 98% of the world’s population, Britain has become a place of chaos, carnage, and terror for the few survivors. After its bloody confrontation with the murderous paramilitaries of "Muldane's Army," the community of Haven licks its wounds. Both Jim Reaper and Sandra Hinchliffe harbor the pain of having lost loved ones in the conflict. More people are flocking to the sanctuary. They bring new skills and the hopes of finding peace and security and a return to civilization. But Reaper knows that just as decent people are coming together in ever-greater numbers and with more sophisticated technology, so too, inevitably, are the predators and the depraved. And so Reaper and Sandra venture abroad seeking early intelligence of the threats that lie over the horizon while dealing with evil wherever they find it, and in the only way they know how. But Sandra is no longer an apprentice: the loss of her husband has turned her hard, efficient, and ruthless. Across the isolated settlements a modern legend spreads. It speaks of the Angel of Death.
