When a team of Delta operators goes missing in Shenhuang, one of China's newly constructed ghost cities, Shin Dae-jung-Callsign: Knight, is called in to assist. But the Osprey transporting him to the scene falls prey to an EMP attack and is forced to crash land atop a parking garage. With a wounded pilot in tow, Knight explores the empty city for signs of life and finds two terrified children who warn him that something monstrous is stalking the city. When the pilot disappears, leaving a pool of b lood and spent bullet casings behind, Knight doesn't doubt their story. As bullets fly and bodies drop, Knight must protect the children, uncover the fate of the missing Delta team and defend against an unstoppable killer whose ability to regenerate and whose horrible appearance reminds him of something he's faced before-the mythological Hydra. But he's not alone in the surreal abandoned city. A team of SAS soldiers, along with Anna Beck, a former member of Manifold Genetics' private security force, join the fray. Together, they fight against a nightmare that follows its objective to the end: kill them all.

The distinctive sound of the AA12 filled the air as Beck pushed the creature back. It toppled over and careened into a stack of crates. But Knight knew that it would only buy them a few seconds. He grabbed Beck by the arm and called out to Donahue. “Pull your men back!” He pointed Beck toward the loading bay door. “Open that up. I’ll grab one of those.” He gestured toward

“Beck! Wait!” he screamed after her. He jerked open his own door and scanned the nearby windows with the FS2000. There were a million places to hide a shooter. “Salvatori!” Beck called out as she ran. The old man turned toward the sound of her voice and struggled to his feet. He stumbled back and nearly fell. Beck reached him just in time and steadied him. “Knight,” she called over her shoulder. He swore under his breath. He looked into the vehicle at Jenkins and said, “Keep an eye on the

Knowing that he couldn’t keep this up much longer, Knight whipped the mini-van down an alleyway. The opening was too narrow for the beast, but that didn’t stop the thing from slamming its formidable bulk into the adjacent buildings and trying to squeeze through. It shrieked in rage and rammed a clawed fist into the

city back in the states. Empty storefronts and lobbies decorated with red and white realtor signs coupled with the lack of cars and people gave rise to memories of the best visions of the apocalypse that Hollywood had churned out. But in most of those films, the buildings and streets were in decay and falling in on themselves. The cleanliness and beauty of the scene actually made it feel more disturbing, as if all the people in the world had simply vanished. Knight turned back to Mueller and

immediately regretted doing so. The large gray concrete walls of a parking garage loomed ahead, and he knew from experience that they were coming in much too fast for a safe landing. He braced himself as the belly of the Osprey struck the surface of the parking garage and skidded forward. Sparks shot up from the friction on the concrete from the bird’s metal belly. Mueller tried to direct the Osprey sideways and away from the approaching sidewall of the structure. But they were moving too fast,
