Ryan Cawdor and his band of postnuclear survivors enter a malfunctioning gateway and are transported to Moscow, where Americans are hated with an almost religious fervor and blamed for the destruction of the world.
Three generations after nuclear blasts all but vaporized the Earth, a group of warrior survivalists led by a charismatic man named Ryan Cawdor roam the hostile environment called Deathlands.
Their quest becomes a grim struggle for survival as they search for a better life beyond the nuke-ravaged cities. And it is one such harrowing journey that brings them to the heart of Moscow.
Beneath a mantle of chemical clouds an strontium snow, the former jewel in Russia's crown is teeming with a bizarre mix of mutated beings and old enemies all intent on killing Ryan and his band of post-holocaust survivors.
A new dark age has dawned with the hope of a promised land. But in the Deathlands, hope is not enough.
