What if the end of the world was just the beginning?
15-year-old Alice Davenport was a loner and an outcast before the Storms swept away everything she knew. Saved from the ravaged remains of her city by the mysterious and all-powerful Paradigm Industries, her fierce independence and unique skills soon gain her recognition from the highest levels of command. But their plans to rebuild civilisation from scratch mean destroying all remnants of the past - no matter what, or who, gets left behind.
Alice must decide if she will fight for the old world, or the new...
15-year-old Carter Warren is woken from the Catacombs after years of cryonic sleep. He's determined to do whatever it takes to climb the ranks to Controller General - until he realises the Industry's control methods have become harsher than ever. The Barricades make sure nothing from the Deadlands can get in to the Community - and no one can get out. And a shocking discovery about his own family causes Carter to question everything he's ever known...
As Alice becomes entangled in the Industry's plan for the future, and Carter delves into the secrets of his past, they must make sacrifices which threaten to tear them apart. And both of them are forced to confront an impossible question...
Stay loyal to their loved ones from the old world? Or dare to build a new one?
