In the heartwrenching follow-up to last year’s breakout Beneath the Rising, the war with the nameless things from Beyond opens a new front – as the heroes’ tattered friendship is finally torn apart.

It’s been a year and a half since the Anomaly, when They tried to force Their way into the world from the shapeless void.

Nick Prasad is piecing his life together, and has joined the secretive Ssarati Society to help monitor threats to humanity – including his former friend Johnny.

Right on cue, the unveiling of Johnny’s latest experiment sees a fresh incursion of Them, leaving her protesting her innocence even as the two of them are thrown together to fight the darkness once more…
