Throughout Ware’s post-apocalyptic series, there has always been the thread of the mystery of Remington Truth — and the secret she keeps. This book finally cuts to the heart of that longstanding plotline while also telling the story of Wyatt, the last remaining original time traveler. Multitalented Ware’s world is gritty and hardscrabble, yet always filled with new hope, all of which adds up to great entertainment.
Since her grandfather’s death, Remington Truth has been on the run from the zombies and Strangers hunting her at every turn. Fifty years ago, Wyatt lost his wife and children when he went into a cave with his friends, only to exit into a far-flung time and a world gone mad. All of his time-traveling comrades have gained mysterious new abilities, but Wyatt has yet to discover his. As the Resistance learns more about the mysterious crystals used by the Strangers, it becomes more critical than ever that Remy reveal what she knows, as she has been entrusted with the most dangerous crystal of all.
