Paul’s Believers rise in song as they begin the opening round of the Great Cleansing. Saul, duly impressed, begins his own preparations for the great battle. With time running out, Queenie, Lucian, and Maria visit the new Sewbie Refuge and find a lost soul. With faith restored, they are able to follow the course set out for them and stand in their places as the Final Act opens.
With the Depot behind them, Luke and Marc must move onward. They are traveling by a vessel that seems near magical, but haunted by the events that have set them on their current course. As they descend into a striking blizzard, they must sort through the storm of their own emotions if they are to survive the next challenges.
“Alpha” Zeke will find himself at ground zero again, as will the survivors of the Refuge. With the weight of the inevitable conflict sinking in, all must find the inner grit they need to survive.
Battered and weakened from the collapse of their last chapel, the faith of Paul’s Believers has been tested near to breaking. But the darkest hour will soon break, as the voice of the “Father” returns to Paul, leading them to recovering the great Babel Tower.
Meanwhile, “Alpha Zeke” pushes the survivors of the Refuge south through the brutal badlands on a hike towards Corinth. Is there hope of rescue? And at what cost?
