Kobi was, until recently, surviving the toxic Waste outside the high school-turned-bunker with the aid of his father. Now, his father has gone missing, and Kobi must fend for himself. Fast-paced, exciting, and just a bit daring in its take on the apocalypse, this is the book for anyone looking for their next adventure story. For fans of Maze Runner, Divergent, or the Fallout game franchise, I cannot recommend this book enough. I will warn you, though, that the story does contain a betrayal or three, as well as some character death. Also giant wolves and possibly sentient (and hungry) plants. Consider yourself warned, and then consider yourself invited.
Survival is just the beginning in this action-packed middle grade adventure that’s Mad Max for kids.
Thirteen years ago, the world ended. A deadly chemical called Waste began to spread across the globe, leaving devastation in its wake. Millions died. Cities fell into chaos. Anything the Waste didn’t kill, it mutated into threatening new forms.
Kobi has always believed he and his dad were the only survivors. But when his dad goes missing, Kobi follows his trail—and discovers a conspiracy even deadlier than the Waste itself.
Nonstop action, chilling dangers, and edge-of-your-seat twists make this gripping, fast-paced read perfect for young readers who love survival adventures like Gary Paulsen’s Hatchet and dystopian series like Jeanne DuPrau’s City of Ember.
Michael Ford lives in the North of England with his wife, two obedient dogs, and two less obedient children. He writes books for childlike adults and adultlike children.
