Nick lives at High Meadow med center. The people there stay hopeful as they work toward self-sufficiency. He counts survivors for Angus’s research. He wants his life to stay as normal as possible in a world he barely understands.
Wisp is a fugitive biobot. He lives off the land, moving from town to town, hiding his extrasensory skills. He is a Finder and will accept the right kind of job. Silence and subterfuge keep him alive.
Lily is a young girl with long brown hair and eyes the color of ripe cherries. She is searching for her brother. They were separated while fleeing armed men. She is part of something that started before her birth.
When these three lives intersect, a chain reaction of death and violence will change the course of the future and impact the very survival of the human race.
What had started as a simple trip turns into an undercover operation for Nick, leaving Wisp to return to High Meadow on his own with a van full of children. In the search for answers, Nick learns that the problems are more complex than he imagined. The country’s minimal infrastructure is teetering on the brink of collapse. And the people in charge are not at all what he’d hoped.
Angus predicts that the high mortality rate from the last round of flu could cause the disintegration of smaller settlements putting people on the road. With the train stations closed, there will be no food or shelter for these refugees, leaving them victim to marauders and starvation.
As Tillie scrambles to plan for a winter without train food, the influx of refugees is eating up precious supplies.
The world is changing again and they must adapt or die.
Somewhere beyond the Four Rings lies the territory of the Surentur. Hunter and Trash want to investigate, but they have to find it first. To protect the Iguacans, they need a better understanding of the military might of their age-old enemy.
Hunter’s past endangers them all when a woman he’s never met makes revelations about his origins. Old ghosts rise up to distract him at a time when he most needs to focus.
Hunter, an experimental Human, was raised by the Alleviators in their isolated enclave Clouded Vale. Coming back to his childhood home as an agent for Galactic Intelligence has him seeing things he’d never noticed before. Their latest patient causes a dramatic shift in everything Hunter had thought to be true.
Elaan was a waitress following the shadow of a dream she couldn’t quite express. Everything changes the day she meets Hunter. He is the key to a destiny that she never envisioned.
The ancient buildings and dusty libraries of Clouded Vale may hold the answer to centuries old questions. Hunter is determined to find those answers without endangering his adopted family.
He’s been sober for three years now, and is about to star in a grand scale come-back movie. Messing up now will mean the end of his career, and possibly his marriage. To get ready, he's rented a cottage in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina where they will start filming in a month. Although he’s thousands of miles from his family and friends, he’s looking forward to the upcoming challenges.
But on his first day there, the trouble started with a car crash. Then he found a body in the woods.
Or did he? When the sheriff arrives, it’s nowhere to be seen.
There are more dark deeds brewing in the mountains. An explosion starts a wildfire in the woods behind his cottage. Then a rockslide pushes his car off the road.
Is someone trying to kill him, again?
