Here, amidst the fumes of alcohol, the sheen of naked, sweaty flesh and the jangle of music, they find the spirit of the old drowned city very much alive.

They are also presented with an opportunity: if they can defeat an opposing team in the upcoming bloodsport of Carnival, the two men will earn themselves an escape from this hostile and decaying Earth. With only a short time to prepare for the lethal contest, they are faced with their ultimate challenge. Bound together by love and honor, BlaqJaq and Nickerson must survive the deadly competition that was once, long ago, known as Mardi Gras.
