Four characters in three intertwining time periods fight for survival on a toxic planet:
Oliver: A lone survivor, raising civilization from the ashes.
London and Rose: Nomads caught between warring factions.
Simon: A space station technician initiating a revolution.
Together they may be last hope for humanity.
The Earth ended slowly, asphyxiated by man's drive for energy and silenced by fire and brimstone. In the hopeless dystopian remnants, there is only the struggle to survive and endure.
Oliver, a lone rider bearing the scars of the old world, flees east into the untamed lands beyond the Rocky Mountains. He spearheads the frontier and carries the burden of civilization into the new world, destined to rebuild from the ruins. He has to survive the wasteland where the earth is toxic, and the very air itself is a corrosive poison.
London, a veteran of the wasteland, shields his adopted daughter Rose from an unforgiving world. They live in a new age that'll soon draw them into the bitter feuds between fledgling nations. No matter what, London will sacrifice anything for Rose. Unbeknownst to London, they are about to be drawn right into the scourge of war.
Simon, a man born and raised on the great Arcadis space station, faces suppressive pressure from The Peacekeepers and The Leaders. Ever the tinkerer, Simon needs to be careful as he breaks the authoritarian rules in the world he has to live in.
