The Deadlands 2: Trapped

Can five young outcasts save their kingdoms?

As a bloody battle rages between the two surviving dinosaur kingdoms, Eleri and his fellow outcasts, newly exiled from their herds, are searching for evidence to prove a mass conspiracy—a conniving cabal of carnivores have manipulated the herbivore kingdoms into war, so they can feast on the slain.

But after the exiles’ hideout is discovered by a vengeful pack of raptors, they must flee and soon find themselves trapped inside the Fire Peak: the volcanic heart of the dreaded Carrion Kingdom.

Before the exiles can escape, they discover a group of imprisoned herbivores being picked apart—literally—one by one. Can the outcasts stage an elaborate heist to free the prisoners and gather proof of the Carrion Kingdom’s vicious plans before their homelands are destroyed?
