When a sudden storm slams Katy’s boat into the shore, she’s forced to enter the lawless wasteland she’d avoided since the world ended. The horror she discovers among the ruins is far worse than she could have imagined. The masked warriors of the Venganza clan chase Katy through the post-apocalyptic landscape, forcing her to decide between her past or the survivors’ future - a decision that could determine the fate of the human race.

"A gritty, fast-paced, post-apocalyptic thriller with a stunning twist." - Colin F. Barnes, author of SALT and other works of science fiction

"J. Thorn creates an immersive, post-apocalyptic world in which you can get lost." - T. W. Piperbrook, author of The Last Survivors and The Ruins

"A grim and detailed post-apocalyptic setting, a mother’s search for her child, the past coming back to haunt - all the elements I love in a novel." - Glynn James, author of Arisen and Diary of the Displaced

Listen now to see if Katy can save humanity from the war in the ruins!
