Sixteen years ago, Britain was ripped apart by riots. Now the country is splintered and there are only small pockets of civilisation. I’ve never set foot past the high-security walls built by my father and my only knowledge of what exists beyond are rumours of wild landscapes and violent people… Until now.
When a stranger from the outside manages to find a way into our compound, and my little sister Skye is found dead. Then and there, I make a vow to do anything to catch her killer. My best friend, daring and smart Luc, promises to help me and together we race into the pitch-black night, leaving everything we knew behind.
Following the dirt track road, we’re faced with danger at every turn and savage outsiders try to take our supplies, our vehicle, our lives. But I know I can rely on Luc, and with only each other, my feelings for him grow stronger.
Just when we think we’re close to finding out what happened to my sister, we’re captured by figures wearing dark, hooded cloaks and taken to a fortress where children have been brainwashed by their terrifying leader James Grey. We’re completely trapped.
But then I realise something that changes everything: this place is connected to my sister’s killer. And other children are in danger too. This quest is bigger than I could have ever imagined, and I know now that if we don’t stop James Grey, it won’t just be my life on the line, but the future of the whole world as we know it…
