To be a Pure is to be perfect, untouched by Detonations that scarred the earth and sheltered inside the paradise that is the Dome. But Partridge escaped to the outside world, where Wretches struggle to survive. Now, at the command of Partridge's father, the Dome is unleashing nightmare after nightmare upon the Wretches in an effort to get him back. To save millions of innocent lives, Partridge must risk his own by returning to the Dome and facing his most terrifying challenge.
After an apocalyptic disaster, the Pures ---- those unmarked by the crisis --- are separated from the rest of humanity in the Dome. But Partridge risks his life to go in search of his mother. Along the way, he meets Pressia, a damaged girl on the run.
In a perfect life far into the future, wherein inhabitants of the underground settlement America-Five enjoy nearly eternal life and zero pain, workers in the Office of Mercy are compelled to eliminate the suffering of the nomadic tribes roaming outside…by tracking and killing them. Then one worker, 24-year-old Natasha, begins to doubt.
After a pandemic devastates the planet, humanity is mostly divided between the living and the living dead. As survivors attempt to restore Manhattan, Mark Spitz and his civilian squad must confront “malfunctioning” stragglers --- those caught in between the living and the undead.
