It's up to Lyric to unite the Alpha before the second wave of a cataclysmic invasion wipes out mankind for good.
After seven months as a captive of Minerva, the insane Alpha queen, Lyric Walker has escaped to the surface. Her only goal is to warn the world about the Great Abyss.

But she soon discovers that an old enemy allied with an old friend may kill them all before the monsters get their turn.
