As if 27 enormous monsters ruling over post-apocalyptic Earth wasn’t enough, now there’s a new threat from outer space: Crawlies, a legion of alien predators eating everything in their path. Humanity’s only chance is an incredible combat mech piloted by Beti, lone hero of a struggling band of survivors, and her best friend, a telepathic dog named E.K.
When they throw out a distress call to no one as they give up hope and go down fighting, the most unexpected thing happens in an already very unexpected day: someone answers. There’s another mech out there! Now Beti faces an even bigger challenge as a long-lost love returns . . . and he’s brought one of The 27 along for the ride!
Filled with jaw-dropping visuals and laugh-out-loud comedy, CRUSH picks up where THE 27 RUN left off, with a new hero, a bold new direction, and a ton of heart as humanity makes its final stand!
