A plague has swept over the Earth, killing the majority of the population and every female. Except one. Ara witnessed the horror and destruction, but for the last three years she has survived. Now, desperation and hunger force her out of the mountains and onto a dangerous path; across the flooded downtown and through the gangs of survivors is hope. Ara’s father spoke of a clue that could save not just her, but humanity. Then she is captured by a group of men. Despite the seeming kindness of one of the young men her own age, Ara doesn’t know if she can trust them. Then again, there’s no way she can cross the plague-ridden city on her own. Men. Monsters. Is there a difference?
