In the year 2410, the catch-cry ‘Join the military, see the world’ still has the same appeal.

There are odd, frightening lights hovering above the river and crop circles in the fields. The strange sightings aren’t just limited to the night sky, however. Glimpses of ghostly apparitions are seen through the windows of shuttered houses – the tortured spirits of people only recently buried. The situation gets rapidly worse as the eerie lights are more brazen, the dead are seen walking the streets late at night and in the local cemetery the soil over the graves is starting to stir …

There is no escape for Michael Garrett and Kerry Wentworth, two newcomers to Hickory.
