Back cover copy

After the destruction of nature and the death of the world . . . After the Wicca virus drove billions to madness and suicide, replacing order and reason with violence and terror . . . In the parched ruins of what once was civilization, one commodity is far morevaluable than all others combined: female children. When well-armed marauders roll in at dusk to brutally attack a fiercely defended compound of survivors, Jessie is unable to halt the slaughter--and she can do nothing to prevent the ruthless abduction of innocents, including her youngest child. Now, along with her outraged teenage daughter, Bliss, Jessie must set out on a journey across a blasted landscape--joining up with the desperate, the broken, the half-mad, on an impossible mission: to storm the fortress of a dark and twisted religion and bring the children home.show more
