Can you survive?
It's the year 2122, seventy-two years after the Upheaval that changed the world. The Earth is nothing like it once was -- rivers became oceans, waters washed away sands and soil to leave jagged cliffs, earthquakes reformed mountain chains, climates grew cold, freezing northern lands, and technology was lost or without resources to continue.
Humanity struggles on. Farming and protecting the wall guarding civilized borders from cannibalistic outsiders called the Oceaners are the main priorities. One stone citadel full of armed forces stands outside the wall’s center. Two more stand at the northern and southern borders. But good men to fill them are scarce.
For reliable help and information, Darvid Squire, leader of the citadels, relies on Scout, a nomad girl he met in the wild lands outside the wall. She knows much about humanity’s past and she knows things of the future before they happen. She also knows the secrets of the haunted outer lands everyone else fears.
When Oceaners band their forces to unconquerable numbers, the citadel leader is taken captive, and Desire with her knowledge along with a new recruit who has secrets of his own become humanity's last hope to stop the devouring and torture of the remaining world.

Meet the Author

T.C. McMullen first pleased her fans in 2002 with the surprisingly "clean" yet suspenseful psychological thriller, Whispers of Insanity. It focused on the characters more than blood or gore. Gone Before Dawn, inspired by her local area, thrilled even more readers, but it was The Manipulated Evil Trilogy with the intricate plot and her strong female warrior Ravyn that gained attention from readers from Washington to Maine, Pennsylvania to Idaho and even across the globe to the UK and Australia. Since then, T.C. has written more novels, all with tales full of deep characters. Despite being an independent author, her work is anything but half-rate. A perfectionist at heart, she has studied the craft of writing as well as art since she graduated high school in 1990. She enjoys research into the myths of ancient cultures and draws much of her inspiration from the stories. Not usually a fan of fantasy because she prefers faster paced stories than most fantasy, she nevertheless found herself pulled into the realm of the genre with her own work. Although she has written about dragons and other familiar mythical creatures, she always strives to add a unique twist either to the character or to the race or setting.
