The Hunger Games meets Cormac McCarthy’s The Road in this
richly imagined first novel in a new post-apocalyptic
trilogy by award-winning poet Francesca Haig.
Four hundred years in the future, the Earth has turned
primitive following a nuclear fire that has laid waste to
civilization and nature. Though the radiation fallout has
ended, for some unknowable reason every person is born
a twin. Of each pair, one is an Alpha—physically perfect
every way; and the other an Omega—burdened with deformity,
small or large. With the Council ruling an apartheid-like
society, Omegas are branded and ostracized while the
have gathered the world’s sparse resources for themselves.
Though proclaiming their superiority, for all their effort
Alphas cannot escape one harsh fact: Whenever one twin
so does the other.
Cass is a rare Omega, one burdened with psychic foresight.
While her twin, Zach, gains power on the Alpha Council,
dares to dream the most dangerous dream of all: equality.
For daring to envision a world in which Alphas and Omegas
live side-by-side as equals, both the Council and the
Resistance have her in their sights.
