Thirty years ago, Brianna Jackson’s father and his criminal friends stood against three monstrous gods rampaging across the globe. They won the battle, but not the war. Six months ago, Dave Anderson lost his heart and soul in his own fight to vanquish those gods. Now, Dave is a broken man with nothing left to live for.
The world is rebuilding after decades of suffering, but Brianna and Dave know the nightmare is not over yet. Because something much worse than the gods has found a way through from the shrieking horror of its reality into ours. The Nameless is coming to finally end what its children began.
Criss-crossing a country descending into anarchy, hunted by government forces and monsters born in hell, Brianna and Dave are on a life or death hunt for the one person who knows how to destroy the Nameless; a man lost to madness and grief. In the bullets and the blood, supported by a handful of ruthless gangsters, Brianna and Dave must make their final stand even as the lights of the universe begin to go out.
Then take their vengeance into the howling heart of evil.

Down beside a lonely stretch of river, Jimmy Marshall witnesses the first of the murders take place. Powerless to stop it, Jimmy tells himself there was nothing he could have done.
But now, a second victim has been discovered.
And a third.
The police suspect Jimmy knows more than he’s telling, and the criminal family of one of the victims wants answers by any means necessary. As Jimmy desperately tries to uncover his connection to the violence, the anniversary of another terrible event rapidly approaches within the howling winds and blizzards.
Born in the snow and the ice, something monstrous connected to Jimmy’s past is reaching a grasping hand into his present. Caught up in a hell twenty years in the making, Jimmy has three days to find an inhuman murderer before the white of the nation’s winter runs red with blood.
Ten years after nuclear war devastates Britain, Lazarus and his adoptive siblings are flesh and blood to each other; to their victims, they are ruthless killers who should exist only in nightmares. Now their next target, a group of men seemingly made soft by a decade of hiding in underground bunkers, welcome the upcoming attack because they are far from weak. Armed and prepared, they are ready for Lazarus and his family.
After the ensuing violence, lost and alone, Lazarus is desperate to make it through the irradiated wasteland to his clan before their captors reach a new government forming in Dover. Armed only with his axe, Lazarus will stop at nothing to kill the men who would dare threaten his kin.
But, unknown to either side, a terrible secret waits far below Dover Castle, lost for decades in the silent labyrinth of wartime tunnels.
A secret infinitely more dangerous than any killer
Transported to the far north of Scotland with dozens of others, all yanked from their lives across Britain, Hannah is taken to an isolated compound they call Pandemonium, which is an ultra-secure prison ruled by creatures that should exist only in nightmares - a place no one has survived for more than a few months.
Hundreds of miles away from help, her family's lives at risk if she disobeys any order, Hannah knows the key to surviving her captivity is to bond with strangers and teach them all to refuse to be victims. But, she's running out of time to convince the other captives to take their fight to the black heart of the prison and its inhuman warden; Hannah is yet to discover she is not the only one about to start a war.
In Pandemonium, all Hell is going to break out.
At the same time, a handful of others fight their way through a panicked city to reach the building-frantic to make it to loved ones before the device ignites less than fifty miles away.In the frozen instant of the detonation, Kelly, her sister and three strangers are locked in that moment and trapped in the offices.
But they are not alone. An ancient god from the deepest pits in the earth has woken and knows their most private secrets and guilt.
Now, horror takes the form of their darkest dreams to draw sustenance from their terror, and the beast stalking them will dine well.Because everybody is afraid of something.
