The Dead have risen. Humanity teeters on the edge of extinction. Only one remote island called Cobble remains as the last holdout of civilization and hope until a military unit fleeing the mainland arrives on the islanders' doorstep, demanding to be allowed to stay. Amongst them is a man whose dreams span the length of time itself and who may hold the key to the human race's salvation. But they are not the islands' only visitors. A dark, demonic creature intent on finishing its work of destroying God's world reawakens the island's dead once more fanning the fires of distrust and hatred as the islanders and the military unit seek to find a way to settle out their differences and work together.
