Smallpox epidemics, floods, droughts—for
sixteen-year old Lucy, the end of the world came and went, stealing with it
everyone she ever loved. Even the landscape of her beloved New York City is
ever-shifting and full of hidden dangers. As the weather rages out of control,
she survives alone in the wilds of Central Park, hunting and foraging for food and
making do with the little she has, while avoiding roving scavengers and
thieves. But when an unrelenting pack of vicious hounds begins to hunt her,
Lucy is not sure she can continue on her own. Then, suddenly, she is swept to
safety by a mysterious boy named Aidan, who helps her escape the hounds and
urges her to join a band of survivors. Reluctantly, she finds him after her
home is destroyed; however, new dangers await her.
An army of Sweepers terrorizes the camp,
carting off innocent people and infecting them with the plague. Lucy and Aidan
realize it’s up to them to save their friends, but Lucy doesn’t know the
Sweepers have laid a trap for her. There is something special about Lucy, and
the Sweepers will stop at nothing to have her in their clutches. Download and start listening now!
