The surviving inhabitants of Refuge have been shifted between worlds, never knowing what would come next. When the bell rings out once more, and the town is deposited in a new dimension, they find themselves surrounded by the worst of all possible landscapes: Hell. And a very familiar one, at that.
As Griffin and Frost work to safeguard the town's survivors from untold dangers yet to come, and solve the enigma of Renford Ellison's plan, the town is thrust into a world straight out of Griffin's nightmares - and his twisted, surreal paintings.
New alliances are formed. Answers emerge. But when Avalon is taken beyond the town's border, Griffin must venture out into the hellish landscape, navigating a labyrinth of flesh and skulls. To save the life of his daughter, he will have to face down an evil he thought existed only in his imagination. And the clock is ticking, because the church bell is ringing...
In their darkest hour, with danger all around, will the inhabitants of Refuge find their way past the bonfires burning bright, or will they be lost forever?
