The second and final instalment in a stunning high-concept post-apocalyptic series in the vein of The Passage by Justin Cronin and Wool by Hugh Howey.
If a virus doesn't kill you, the South will...
The USA has been ravaged by Civil War. While the South has been devastated by disease, the North has emerged victorious, but terrified of reprisals. Both territories remain at the mercy of the vicious Northern dictator, Renard.
Two survivors, Dyce and Vida, find themselves scouring the Northern territories on a new and deadly pursuit; to eliminate Renard himself. Can Dyce and Vida unite a fractured America - and at what cost?
This is the story of Dyce and Vida.
This is the story of the Resistance and its last, desperate, stand.
This is the story of North.
