New York was the first city to be hit, infected men mutating to become the new species Homo Vampirous. Women, genetically immune to the virus, became food for the rampaging army of the damned.
The plague spread quickly, millions dying, the airborne virus unstoppable as it swept across the country.

As thousands of desperate women were herded onto the trains, those ripped from their homes quickly began to suspect the dark truth behind the evacuation.
