A post-apocalyptic adventure split between two character perspectives, the plots here move forward quickly and in parallel, as a couple separated following a 50-year frozen sleep by which they escaped the destruction seeks to survive and perhaps reunite.

Much care is put into the characters than many books of its ilk. The disconnect between the two protagonists--one still carries a flame, one still carries regret--is compelling, and the emotional anguish of characters in a sinister and traumatizing position is realized effectively.
Meet The Survivors
Look, I've had to keep a lot of secrets in my life and I know I don't fit into any sterotype. In fact, I hate being judged. But screw it, like me or don't like me, I really don't care. Either way I'm not taking anyone's shit, especally out in the wild. It's survival of the fitest and I'm making damn sure I survive.
When the sky erupted with fire, my only thought was of Wren. Relief washed over me when I saw that she had made it safely to the cryobank. I know when this is over, when we all awake to a new world, she will be shattered. I will find her. I'll find her and tell her all of the things I should have said before our lives turned to ashes. Once I have her back in my arms, we'll start a new life together, a life for both of us not just the selfish life I expected of her. Sometimes I can be a real ass.
When the end of the world came, I wasn't ready for it...who would be? I'm terrified of what the future holds, of who I am now, without Aiden. But I'm stronger than I know and even in the face of the unknown, I will somehow become the bad-ass that I see in Briar.
Everyone has secrets in this place, even me. I can see Wren watching me and honestly I'm not sure she knows how sexy she is. I can't go there, not out here in the wild, not like this. But I feel myself thinking about what a life would be like with her. It's stupid and I know she's got a guy out there...if he made it. Plus, I've got a job to do. Getting all of us out of this hell hole is going to take more than muscle. It's going to take a lot more.
It hasn't even been twenty-four hours and I'm sick of my squad already. They think they know everything especally that Briar girl. She's a real case and she's crazy if she thinks she's going to boss me around. Survival of the fitest is right and screw them all. I'm going to do whatever I have to to get the hell out of this place.
I'm scared, terrified really and so so sad. I can't believe that I'll never see my family again, my sister, my parents. It happened too fast and now I'm all alone. Briar's nice and she will help me but I don't know if I can even take one step out of this compound. I've never done anything special. I've never stood out from the crowd. But I know that my parents would want me to be brave, so I'll try.
