(From the publisher):

They fled to escape the uncontrollable horror of their own far future, and we, their distant ancestors, housed and fed and comforted them, content in their assurance that the tunnel was securely guarded from the beasts, whatever or whoever they were.
But then somebody up there slipped up and the beasts were abroad...
