The former citizens of Prin are running out of time. Esther and Caleb must begin a harrowing journey in hopes of finding food and shelter-- not to mention a way to make it past age nineteen. On the way, Esther must rally to take charge with the help of a blind guide, Aras. He appears unbelievably cruel, but not everything is as it seems in the Wasteland. In this sequel to Wasteland, the stakes are even higher for Esther, Caleb, and the rest of their clan. They're pinning all their hopes on the road ... but what if it's the most dangerous place of all?
