In 2050 mankind still believes nature can be conquered.
Until The Devastation changes everything.
Trees suddenly develop a powerful electrical system which zaps anything metal, including humans wearing or holding it. Scientists can't explain it, can't fix it. Logging and paper industries are wiped out.
Young trees start sprouting up everywhere. The mysterious growth is rapid and inexorable, promising to destroy farms, roads and airports. In days, the supermarkets are stripped bare.
On Wescara, a small holding on Vancouver Island, a family of eight fight to keep from starving. When the power fails and the technology they once took for granted is useless, the struggle escalates as desperate gangs attack, willing to do anything for a morsel of food.
About the Author
Lea Tassie grew up in the Peace River district of northern BC. Due to six months of winter and two months poor sledding, she started reading books as soon as she could hang on to one. She has traveled and worked in many places, which may explain why she can’t stick to one genre as an author. Her books include humor (about cats), romantic suspense, mainstream and lately, speculative fiction. When she discovered the temperate rainforest stretching along 1200 miles of the Pacific Coast, from Oregon to Alaska, she quit traveling and settled in for good.
