I absolutely love historical fiction and read a lot of it; I love to learn history this way. I also enjoy reading science fiction, fantasy, horror, thriller and non-fiction science.
322 years after the apocalypse, a small group of survivors have carved out a way of life on a small island in the Pacific. They dedicate their existence to Bennet Ashby, the man who found the island and created a material to contain the force that caused the apocalypse. The island is governed by a group of Elders who are tasked with keeping the delicate balance of life within the island, births and deaths, jobs and limited resources. The Elders also hold many secrets from the rest of the islanders. These secrets do not sit well with Ashley Wortham, whose constant questions have gotten her in trouble. Matched with the vile and abusive Wesley, Ashley decides to fight back. When Ashley murders Wesley, her best friend Mason receives the blame and is slated for execution. The Elder's come up with a solution that will fit their needs and deal with the accused murderer Mason and troublesome Ashley- send them off the island too determine the conditions on the mainland.
