Man, in his technological brilliance, has outdone himself. Political wrangling and disparate factions have vied and fought for limited resources, until those were exhausted. Some could be created; many could not. Space and the oceans held some promise, but never yielded sufficient quantities for the swelling hordes. The results were cataclysmic, at first minor skirmishes, later blooming into wholesale destruction. Humanity had lost its way. There was no turning back. Follow Mark and Elyse as they struggle to discover what happened to their world, and how they can survive in this incomprehensible new life.
