A gripping post-apocalyptic tale from the acclaimed author of Mallawindy and the Woody Creek series

The world as it was has been all but destroyed. Those few who survived the Great Ending are now ruled by an all-powerful group known as the Chosen, whose walled city encloses a diminishing population riddled with plague and threatened with extinction. Desperate to repopulate, the Chosen send searchers to capture every surviving female still living in the wild lands beyond the city for their new breeding stations.

There is a girl with a name neither of her companions can remember, who is found by the Chosen's searchers living on a remote property. Since then, she has known little more than the life they enforce-a life dominated by their breeding program and genetic experimentation-while they immunise her and prepare to take her to their city.

Then one afternoon a son of one of the Chosen arrives at the girl's farm, a boy who has fled from a life that he has come to find unbearable. His arrival sets in motion a chain of events which change the girl's life in ways she could not possibly have imagined-offering her a chance to regain the unthinkable-freedom. . .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Out There I'm a devoted Joy Dettman reader, having read 8 of her other books, but I'm sorry I just couldn't finish this one. I was forcing myself to read it but getting no enjoyment so gave up. I will read more JD books but I'll be sure to read preview first.
