The world is rotting away. Bodies are melting, buildings dissolving and it's only a matter of time before the world completely disintegrates.
Despite the world rotting away, lovers Isobel and Dresden are fighting for the future, and their wedding day. Unfortunately, the rotting world isn't their only challenge. Dresden's mother is a wealthy woman with powerful secrets who wants only the best wife for Dresden, and Isobel isn't it.
Dresden's mother has him kidnapped and held hostage so he'll not only miss his wedding, but alters him so he'll survive the rotting world and live with her forever.
It's up to Isobel to search the apocalyptic world for Dresden while he fights his mother's mansion of horrors. If luck is on their side, Isobel and Dresden may be able to find one another before the world completely disappears.
