The Deadlands. . . A wasteland of burning sun and shifting sands that stretches for more than a thousand miles from the foot of the Rocky Mountains to the Mississippi River. The once vibrant Great Plains of the former United States is little more than a bleak and barren desert, a blasted landscape that holds only sad reminders of what has been lost. Rayn and Luk must brave the perils of this arid land of fierce beasts, savage sandstorms, and hidden dangers if they're going to reach the Beastlands beyond. They will encounter new enemies, and discover precious new allies. Rayn's suspicions about the results of Luk's Sojourn Lottery continues to grow, but she must put those doubts aside if they have any chance of surviving what's coming. The Deadlands will push them to their breaking points while testing the strength of their bond. Their only goal: Survival.
