One minute Andy Hirsch is blinking with drowsiness, trying to think of a way to get loose so he can take his wife and four kids to safety, and the next he's waking up 500 years later, stripped of his young family, gasping with pain in the dripping January forest near what he once knew as Scappoose, Oregon. Thugs hired by his ex-boss violently abducted and cryogenically preserved him in a crisis moment at the beginning of a Jihad nuclear war. Two hardluck kids revived him -- twelve-year-old Lila, a smart and sassy girl who pays for it with beatings, and Jock, her fourteen-year-old woods-wise brother. After finding Andy up the canyon and injured by the preservation process, the kids helped him to their village.The new era echoes its dark past with a vicious present, and fear rules short lives. Andy finds that Jock and Lila need him as much as he needed them. Together, with cunning, tenacity and often a use of scientific "magic," the three forge a path throught Andy's midnight-of-the-soul in a story that will grab your heart, mind, and curiosity, and pull you into their evolving world.
