Most people want to save the world; seventeen-year-old Tora just wants to get off of it. One of the last survivors in Earth's final years, Tora yearns to escape the wasteland her planet has become, but discovers her fellow survivors are even more deadly than the hostile environment.

Holed up in an underground shelter, Tora is alone. All Tora has left is Trigger, one of the bio-energetic weapons her father created for the government before his conscience kicked in.

When mercenaries take Tora's weapons by force, fury turns to fear. Tora must choose between saving herself or honoring her father's request to save humanity from the most lethal weapons in existence.

Review quote

"This book contains all of the required elements of dystopian literature: a futuristic, post-apocalyptic Earth, characters trying to survive in extreme circumstances, romance that is complicated by trust issues, and a variety of plot twists. Tora Reynolds is left alone following a disaster in which an asteroid collision caused a series of events that eventually led to the sun super-heating the Earth. She is in charge of protecting the bio-energetic weapons created by her scientist father. Tora teams with a band of renegades to keep the weapons out of government hands. The plot twists and turns are enough to keep the reader interested and guessing, but the dystopian theme is familiar and somewhat predictable. In spite of this, the title is a promising first book in a new series and will leave the reader wanting to know what happens next. Recommended." --Library Media Connection
