With the help from his friends Sunny and Remington—and a giant-bull sidekick named Darlin', the towering Augustus wrestles with the threatening past of a sinister ghost town, fights soulless men known as Vacants, and tangles with all manner of gargantuan beasts.

And, as Augustus and friends move closer to the heart of the Reckoning, they come to comprehend its truth.
