In the near future, after her father’s climate change experiment goes terribly wrong, twenty-two-year-old environmental studies student, August Madison, finds herself resurrected in a frozen wasteland.
With most of the world’s population and food sources annihilated, depraved nomadic gangs patrol the lawless landscape as outlasters claw for survival. Even old friends become unrecognizable.
Amid the chaos, Greysen Marx, iron-fisted leader of the domed settlement Liberty, emerges from the catastrophic event with his own agenda—collecting only those who exhibit unexplained abilities.
When August crosses his path, he sees an opportunity he must exploit. She sees an evil she must destroy.
In a treacherous new world where anyone could be saviors or savages, August discovers her true purpose. And only the strongest will survive.
