The day the bombs began to fall, Ashley was eleven years old and in school.
Fast forward six years, and she leads a group of teenagers through the ruins of the city. Always on the search for supplies. Always on the lookout for the alien enemy. Always hunting for food, always hunted by the enemy.
The alien robots are not the only foes, though. The city crawls with lawless gangs, who would like nothing better than to get their hands on the group of children hiding in the basement of their bombed-out school.
