NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Jason M. Hougha€™s pulse-pounding debut combines the drama, swagger, and vivid characters of Joss Whedona€™s Firefly with the talent of sci-fi author John Scalzi. In the mid-23rd century, Darwin, Australia, stands as the last human city on Earth. The world has succumbed to an alien plague, with most of the population transformed into mindless, savage creatures. The planeta€™s refugees flock to Darwin, where a space elevatora€”created by the architects of this apocalypse, the Buildersa€”emits a plague-suppressing aura. Skyler Luiken has a rare immunity to the plague. Backed by an international crew of fellow a€œimmunes, a€ he leads missions into the dangerous wasteland beyond the auraa€™s edge to find the resources Darwin needs to stave off collapse. But when the Elevator starts to malfunction, Skyler is tappeda€”along with the brilliant scientist, Dr. Tania Sharmaa€”to solve the mystery of the failing alien technology and save the ragged remnants of humanity.
