Savagery reigns. The world has been thrown into an unrelenting dystopia of unchecked violence. Governments have dissolved. Survival has been reduced to a more primitive nature. Out in the far reaches of an isolated desert in what remains of the western United States, warring motorcycle clans compete for territory and resources. But the old ways of warfare have gone.
Guns are the stuff of stories now. Legends of great blasts and speeding bullets are recounted to new generations. They are but one of the few luxuries of the old world.
Zyra—a young girl of twelve, cunning and vicious—must contend with her entrapment by a brutal clan, known as The Skoners, in the western territory. Only through ingenuity and a reluctant alliance with a dissenting member of her enemy can she hope to survive.
Yet all is not what it seems. Within the ranks of The Skoners, the scent of mutiny permeates the air when Tank—an animalistic killer, bent on achieving honor through blood—moves to overthrow the current leadership run by the wise and calculated Gauge, and undermine years of Gauge’s endeavors to implement a new society in the western territory, where all can ride hard and live free.
