In a time of a failed One-World order economy, the only viable currency is a human one.It is 2035, and the path of Earth’s inevitable destruction has finally been realized. Efforts to perfect weapons of mass destruction and subsequently destroy one another have come to a head as the most powerful countries engage in an all-out nuclear assault—the time of The Big Drop— that ravages every organic life form, both plant, and animal. 90% of human life is wiped out, and of the 10% that survive, radiation poisoning has varying effects on the human genome, creating both mindless beasts called Ashers and beings with special gifts – Alphas. In a slave pod outside Savannah, Georgia, survivor Keesa Donovan will fight to save both her family and those she loves from the tyranny of The Establishment.
