The world has fallen to ash.
Lost in the rubble of a society long dead, a small group of survivors forages for what supplies are left to be found. Their explorations will lead to a fatal confrontation as their paths cross with one young man with a death wish. The story of what drove him to that place on that day is one that will change their outlook forever on their increasingly bleak existence on the landscape of a newly alien world.
Set within the universe of Chad A. Clark's Behind Our Walls trilogy, this is an account of a life of struggle amidst destruction, of hopeless striving for the one thing capable of keeping any light burning in the darkness.
