Summary
This dystopian novel is set thirty years in the future, in the wake of a third world war waged as a result of a water crisis that ends in catastrophic destruction. When Mercy's long-lost brother Leo, arrives with news that his children have been spotted, the two brothers travel into the wilderness to look for them. What they find is that the line between truth and lies becomes indistinguishable; challenging Mercy's own moral code about the things that matter amid the wreckage of war and tragedy
Summary
Set in 2047 after a third world war has left a third of the global population dead and collapsed most nation states, a former soldier and his brother go searching the wilderness for the soldier's children
