The world is in ruins. Earth’s end is her beginning ...

Derry lives in perpetual fear of capture. The sixteen-year-old and her brother survive underground on a scorched Earth replete with gangs, clones, and mysterious hoverships. When Derry's brother goes missing, her only chance of getting him back is to strike a deal with a group of murderous subversives. 

As she leads her fellow preppers on a dangerous mission to save her brother, Derry discovers the world she knows is a lie. Keeping her brother alive may require trusting her enemy and opening her heart to something she never thought possible.

                                                               EXCERPT

I trace the trigger housing on my gun and count the remaining clones congregated around the room. Were grossly outnumbered. And Owen is weaponless. This cant end well if we dont comply.
“You have thirty seconds to accept my terms,” Lyong says, a nettled edge to his voice.
I shiver, picturing his one-eyed tic appraising me in a monitor somewhere as he talks, his papery skin rippling with the effort of speech. I cant see a way out of the situation that gives me any chance of saving Owen, other than to negotiate. Hesitantly, I raise my arms and step forward.
“My brothers injured,” I yell. “If you give us your word youll help him, well turn over our weapons.”
My heart strains in my chest. Im counting on Mason and Sven to hold their fire. I wait for what seems like forever, steeling myself for Lyongs response.
The intercom crackles to life, but Lyongs words are drowned out in a barrage of gunfire. I pitch sideways beneath a conveyer belt and huddle in a ball, shaking. Debris pelts me from every angle; chunks of seat cushions, shredded medical tubing, shards of glass from exploding computer screens. A pungent chemical smell fills the air.
All over the room, disoriented Schutz Clones fly backward. I stare in disbelief as they writhe in death throes, ossifying before my eyes. Mason bolts across the floor and rolls under the belt beside me. His eyes gleam like cats eyes in the dim light. “Its the Council,” he yells, between breaths. “Theyve penetrated the Craniopolis!”
I blink as I digest what hes saying, my ears roaring.
Mason slams a fresh cartridge into his gun, his knuckles bleeding profusely. “They must have triggered the explosion. Theyve been planning an attack for months.”
My brain slowly wraps itself around the information. Theres still a chance of getting out of here alive. I unload my pack and roll over into sniper position. “Then lets finish this.” I lock eyes with Mason. “For Owen.”
