Abel wanders the wastes, scavenging to survive as he searches for a reason to live.
He discovers a young boy suffering the same addiction that almost killed him.
Terrified of being alone, Abel takes the child under his wing, promising to free him from drugs and offering him a new life.
As he battles his addiction, the kid reveals how he escaped from the brutal gang The Family after being held as a slave in their drug factory.
When the boy vanishes following a run-in with the gang, Abel doesn’t know if the kid was taken or if he chose his old life. Abel can’t just walk away — he’s finally found something to hold onto.
Risking everything he has left, he must journey through the dead city to find out the truth…

Early reviewers have said the book is like Stephen King’s The Stand meets Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, and offers a fresh take on the genre.
