People - lots of them - are going missing on the island nation of Aruba. Jack Hunger has a funny feeling it’s not by natural causes. Fearing the worst, he and Wayne Olsen must hop a flight from south Florida to the Caribbean to find out the truth. Allyson Hayes and Chad Steiner were set loose on the promise they had become human, again; that they no longer required or desired human flesh to live.
A phone call to his sister leads Flex Sheridan into a nightmare and a quest to save his family from a new, horrifying epidemic that's turning humans into zombies. As he makes his way from Georgia to Gainesville, Florida and back, he picks up old and new friends and survivors. Flex reconnects with perhaps the strongest woman he's ever known, Gem Cardoza, his former girlfriend.
Scott, Warren, and Missy Walsh did not understand what their roles were to be when the omnipresent light first blinked on. They believed their only obligation was to find a safe place for their small family to escape what was happening all around them. But fate would not allow them to hide away in the North Carolina cabin for long. Now, with their number hovering near a dozen survivors, they must work together - along with Koku, the flawed, self-aware goddess with a long-term memory problem - to preserve Earth for humanity's occupation.

To find Climbing Fox Wattana, they must cross a countryside teeming with flesh-craving skinwalkers. The skinwalkers have drawn together to form massive hordes - some wandering on their own; others amassed by Qaletaqa, an ancient Chief of the Hintoka Tribe who possesses near immortality. But he also hides a deeper secret of which few living humans are aware.
The camera has a dark past. The evil that seeped into its mechanisms manifests itself in ways only Jack Hunger and Wayne Olsen can understand. But that's only because they're familiar with the darkness, and how to fight it. Others who encounter its subjects haven't a clue what they are about to face.
We used to believe that mankind contaminated the Earth through our use of oil, coal, and other non-biodegradable consumables and pollutants. We never once considered that the planet might one day contaminate us. But that's what happened. More than a year has passed since an ancient gas started seeping from every surface of the planet. Nine out of every 10 humans have since transformed into walking dead creatures with an insatiable hunger for human brains and flesh. We, the survivors, are now food for the afflicted… and we are vastly outnumbered.

Luke never expected his first journey would hurl him into a time-bending nightmare he could not explain, into an era long before he was born. In Las Vegas, Nevada, in 1958, Luke McCabe becomes a sadistic serial killer called "The Cowboy".
