Jack is more powerful than ever and has control of the one person Danby truly loves: her brother Evan. Determined to free Evan and rid the world of the evil that is Jack, Danby hatches a risky plan - but will she pay the ultimate price to liberate those she loves?

By the glow of the instrument panel, I see my face reflected in the darkened window.

'My God,' she says. 'Who are you?'

It's what I've been asked before. I don't know the answer.


Danby is desperately fighting to save the last of humanity.

But with Jack's sinister influence more powerful than ever, Danby's one hope for freeing his Minions - and her little brother - seems lost. The only option now for the few survivors not under Jack's control is escape at any cost.

Danby will also have to confront a danger much closer to home as she realises what she risks in the ferocious battle that looms. Embracing a brutal warrior code might save Danby's life, but the price is high.

In the explosive final act of the Last trilogy, Danby must save who she can, even if it means abandoning hope for her last remaining family. With soldiers, marauders and toxic bushfires closing in, she has no choice but to fight before she can take flight.

'Michael Adams has achieved what few authors can - a thoughtful and enthralling exploration of humanity and the human psyche in the face of an apocalyptic disaster.' - Speculating on Specfic
