At sundown in the desert where nightmares converge in a roadside eatery called the Cracker Pot, Carl comes face-to-face with the monster who cost him his hand... and his sanity. Vampire-hunter Alice weighs tradition against wedding vows and Stella and Xen pit will against will in a bloody Mexican stand-off that neither woman can win. Stella must save herself and her husband. Can she do it without sacrificing her way of life to Xen's cold, cruel vision of the future? Featuring art by Justin Randall.
