Winter is coming. With the zombie apocalypse raging all around them, and the last vestiges of government teetering on the verge of collapse, Army veteran Lee Riker, his younger sister Tara, Steven “Steve-O” Piontek, and their Trinity House companions, are working feverishly to fortify their New Mexico redoubt.

After a deadly encounter with survivors looking to settle a score, a skirmish that left some of the Trinity group nursing new wounds—physical and mental—cracks are beginning to show in their fragile alliance.

While part of the group is off foraging for supplies in the Santa Fe suburbs, one member is scouring the airwaves with Trinity’s long-range communications gear. Searching for answers to a question she has yet to divulge to even those closest to her, Lia instead intercepts a plea for help she finds impossible to ignore.

As Lia lobbies the others to accompany her on a rescue mission, another member discovers in the bunker beneath Trinity a map marked with mysterious symbols. Believing the symbols denote sites that may contain supplies necessary to ride out winter, several members volunteer to accompany Lia on a mission they hope will kill two birds with one stone.

Will the group cover the hundreds of miles of zombie infested southwest desert in time to help the person in distress?

Will the map prove to be boon or bust?

Will Lia’s one burning question finally be answered?

With danger lurking around every corner, will the group allow their differences to draw them even further apart, or will they get over themselves long enough to survive one more day in the zombie apocalypse?

Come along and find out!
