Scorched: The Last Nomads
by Melanie Karsak
One hundred and sixty-seven years ago, a solar coronal mass ejection devastated civilization. In the blink of an eye, technology died. Destroying the grid might not have brought about our end, but the solar superstorm blighted the land and sickened mankind. In the wake of the crisis, lawlessness ruled, and societies fell. Now, The Park, one of the last communities, teeters on the brink of extinction.
When the annual shipment of supplies from Low Tide outpost fails to arrive, The Park sends a small group, led by Keyes’s sister Ash, to find out what happened.
But the group never returns.
Now Keyes has two choices: wait for her sister to return or mourn her for dead. Who calls those options?
The arrival of The Dead Troupe–part-nomads, part-performers–at The Park offers Keyes an unexpected opportunity.
