Mason Brand has fled his life as a celebrated photographer and renounced his past. He is living rough, as a hermit in the Welsh hills, when something happens to him among the mossy oaks. He begins to hear "the calling." Years later, Mason is living within sight of a colossal landfill dump, and he hears "the calling" again. This time he will heed it, and it will lead him, for he is called to assist in a terrible birth—out of the waste of human society comes a thing, and its enemy is human. Tackling the issue of the environment and landfill sites, this chilling fable of eco-horror asks what happens to all the unwanted things we bury, because they just won't go away.

There are survivors, small groups enduring as best they can in a seemingly abandoned world. At night, the landscape glows with unnatural light. The stillness is broken by the desolate cries of the lost population, returning now to search for...no one knows what. What is certain, though, is that those they drag into the shadows do not return.The Veil contains the final testaments of two disparate groups; a band of survivalists barricaded into a single block of an American city, and a young family hiding in a remote part of the English countryside. But there are enemies among the survivors too, using the cataclysm to serve their own desires. If the end of the world can't cleanse the human heart, what reason can there be to continue?
