When a mysterious virus tears through the small town of Black River it spares residents’ lives but takes some thing just as precious – their memories.
Six months later, the people of Black River are quarantined, surviving on rations, and policed by government forces. With their memories erased, they’ve all been trans- formed – some for better, some for worse.
Seventeen-year-old Cardinal Cassidy has escaped the virus, but he can’t escape its devastating impact on his home and family. He chooses to remain deep within the Quarantine Zone, living in a mountain camp with the town’s former bully – now his best friend. Together, they look after a group of orphaned kids and do their best to move on. But then an enigmatic young woman appears, a private corporation takes control of Black River, and the safe, closed-off world Cardinal has created begins to crumble.
Perfect for fans of dystopia!
