Description

Scientists predicted it would take seventy years for the Arctic Shelf to completely melt. In the end, it took less than five. We lost thirty percent of our land to the oceans and a big chunk of our structure to panic and anarchy. The Melt crippled us. But it was the Arctic Virus at the bottom of The Melt, trapped for millennia in the darkest depths of ice strata, that broke us. The real flood was the Living Corpses. A population of billions turned to soulless, rabid shells within months. That's what washed away the human race as we know it. Born into a post-apocalyptic world, Lake has grown up in the last city standing. Governed by what used to be the Queen's Cold Stream Guard, vaccinated against the threat, life in Windsor City is both harsh and fair. The rules are designed to strengthen the city and ensure survival. Lake's future is planned out with opportunities and unfair advantages and then there's Ash-her best friend and hopefully more. Things could be worse, considering she's living past the end of days. And, sometimes, she could definitely do with being a better person, which was what drafting into the Guard for two years of service was supposed to be about. But she has no idea what she's signed up for. The city is more vulnerable than she'd ever imagined, on its knees at the mercy of a megalomaniac organisation, and she's just been chosen to pay the price.show more
