The third and final book of the YA apocalyptic Wasteland trilogy.


Time has become the collective’s scarcest resource. Holed up in a location they can’t hope to defend, and with precious few supplies, their very survival hinges on finding a defensible place to settle, somewhere they can risk using their limited store of seeds to grow more food.


Valeria pounces on the chance to join one of the scouting teams tasked with finding a new home. Reeling from the aftermath of her parents’ actions and searching for answers, she’s desperate to get out into the wasteland and discover who and what else is out there. 


Afraid the collective’s recent upheaval will call his position into question once more, Alessandro is doing his best to blend in. But when the scouting teams begin bringing back information into which he alone can provide insight, information that may hold the key to finding a secure location for the collective, he has no choice but to draw attention to himself.


When a marauding group begins closing in on their borders, the collective is forced to reckon with losing their one and only edge. Whatever the cost, they must move before they’re truly prepared or risk annihilation.

About the author

Nicole has progressed from scribbling in notebooks to banging on keyboards, but she’s never managed to stop daydreaming at inappropriate moments.


When not answering the demands of her characters, Nicole can often be found curled up with a good book or spending far too many hours acting the hero in whatever video game is her obsession of the moment.


One of Nicole’s other great passions is travel. She loves being married to a native Belgian, both because she likes the idea of being “The American” and because it gives her plenty of excuses to visit Europe—that wondrous land of coffee, chocolate, pastry—as often as possible.


Michigan born and raised, Nicole lives there with her honorary Michigander/Belgian husband and her two children.

Book 1 of the YA apocalyptic Wasteland trilogy.


When environmental collapse forces the Job Creators to retreat to sealed domes, those left behind have two choices: fight for survival or perish.


For years, seventeen-year-old Alessandro Bonanno has managed to scrape out a living by digging out scrap from derelict buildings. Were it not for his determination to save his seven-year-old brother, Enzo, Alessandro might have chosen the easy way out, as his father has, disappearing down a bottle of cheap liquor. 


Alessandro’s situation becomes far more precarious and dangerous when the Creators flee, taking all semblance of law and order with them. With no other options, he agrees to work for a crime lord in exchange for protection for himself and his brother. But the deeper the crime lord draws Alessandro into her web, the more he fears he and his brother will never escape.


Born seventeen years ago on a Creator’s farming collective, Valeria Lagunes has never known anything other than a life of toil under the relentless sun. Despite what the Creators’ propaganda insists, crop yields are dwindling with each passing year, begging the question of which lives will be prioritized when there isn’t enough food to go around.


Yet as terrified as Valeria is of the impending famine, those fears are nothing compared to what her community must face when the Creators abandon them. Suddenly, the people of the collective are no longer just simple farmers. In this new lawless world, they must become warriors in order to defend their own. But can Valeria live with herself when forced to make decisions that go against every conviction she holds most dear?
