In a time of a failed One-world-order economy, the only viable currency is a human one.
It is 2035, and the path of Earth’s inevitable destruction has finally been realized. Efforts to perfect weapons of mass destruction and subsequently destroy one another have come to a head as the most potent countries engage in an all-out nuclear assault. Humanity devolves back to its carnal heritage of slavery to re-establish currency through the slave trade. 90% of human life is wiped out, and of the 10% that survive, radiation poisoning has varying effects on the human genome, creating both mindless beasts called Ashers and beings with unique gifts – Alphas. 16-year-old Keesa must now survive in a wasteland of despair while trying to protect her brother – the last of her living relatives. But on the fateful day of the annual Reckoning, Keesa’s life takes a dreadful turn.
