After genetically altered weeds devastate Earth’s croplands, much of humanity turns to cannibalism to survive. Dr. Tula Macoby believes photosynthetic skin can save the human race, and her people single-mindedly embark on a mission to convert the cannibals that roam what’s left of Earth. But when Levi, a peaceful stranger, refuses alteration, Tula doesn’t think the only options should be conversion or death.
Levi Kraybill, a devout member of the Old Order, left his Holdout farmland to seek a cure for his terminally ill son. Genetic manipulation is a sin, but Levi will do almost anything for the life of his child. When he’s captured, he’s sure he’s damned, and his only escape may be death.
Tula’s superiors schedule Levi’s euthanization, and she risks everything to set the innocent man free. Now she and Levi are outlaws with her people, and abomination with his. Can they find sanctuary in a cannibal wasteland?
Humanity is expendible
When Jubal, a friendly trader, arrives at the Holdout with news of Eily’s lost twin sister, Eily doesn’t hesitate to head into the cannibal wasteland to save her. But the government insists she carry a tracking device she knows will be the end of the people she once called family.
Jubal has always avoided two things: slave trading and the green-skinned Flame Runnas. But now a cannibal king is holding his father prisoner until he brings back a Flame Runna slave. Beautiful, green-skinned Eily makes the task easy, volunteering to come along. Easy until Jubal falls in love…
With a father’s life at stake on one side and a sister’s on the other, someone is going to have to lose. And the loser might just be humanity.
