About this ebook

Death in daylight. Danger at dark. 

A scalding new twist on post-apoc fiction. 

Winner of the Rosemary Award for excellence in young adult fiction, Sunscorched is a tale of survival and self-discovery at breakneck speed. Fans of The Maze Runner and Marie Lu’s Legend, who crave strong female characters, dangerous heroes, and dark secrets, will love the Sunscorched world.

Earth, once lush and green, is gnarled and twisted after a series of solar blasts. Nori Chisholm can't remember a time she didn't run from the sun, which was bad enough, but news of an impending sunscorch delivers her death sentence. Desperate to survive the scorch, she's forced to shelter underground and discovers a secret subterranean world where life is hard, and so are the people. 

Sam Cooper has no reason to believe luck is on his side. Fate has so far been a bipolar vagrant, bestowing favors and curses with equal generosity. But when Nori, fresh-faced and feisty, lands at his feet, he begins to reconsider. 

Whether Cooper is friend or foe, Nori doesn’t know. But speeding by motorcycle through the underground world, she makes a shocking discovery that shatters everything she thought she knew. Can she use that knowledge to save what’s left of the world?
