Alex is taking her sisters and their kids to her camp in the Adirondacks when the unthinkable happens. The radio warns the country is under attack. They must seek immediate shelter. Greeted by guns and bullets when they try to find refuge, they’re forced to hide in a cave to wait out the fallout. After two weeks in their dank hole, Alex discovers her sisters have gone off, abandoning their kids, leaving her to care for them. It’s a 35-mile hike to her camp–a journey through hell. The hamlets and villages they pass through have turned into killing fields as survivors battle each other for the few remaining supplies. Along the way, Alex rescues two children orphaned by the violence. Her life is changed forever when she stumbles on a hidden cache of food guarded by a man who’ll haunt her nightmares. Half guardian angel, half demon. Both barbarian and benefactor. A strange mixture of brutality and gentleness, cruelty and caring. A man named Wolf!
