Physically and psychologically changed, Warren is haunted by the prophetic dream of a Black Rainbow and a powerful compulsion to travel east. Unwilling to lose her, the Team follows, and with the help of new parents, Kaya and Citizen Z, Our Heroes discover the hidden meaning of Warren s dream, Zona s plan to cleanse the earth for their own use, and the nearly impossible tasks Our Heroes will have to complete to save all that s left of non-billionaire life on earth. As if all that wasn't hard enough, the Zombie Virus has evolved again, the parasite spreading from the brain into all the remaining flesh, so that killing the brain no longer kills the Zombie; Mad-Zs must be totally obliterated, or they just keep coming. There's no gas, hardly any bullets, and damn few people that aren't bug nuts crazy. Just a dream and a mission and a sliver of hope, as Warren leads the Team back across the American Apocalypse, uniting our core characters again, new evolutions of their old selves, on a single mission of hope.
