In a 23rd Century Britain where oil and electricity are just a distant memory, Kingsmen rule the few remaining people with a rod of iron, exacting the severest penalties for the smallest crimes. Sixteen year old Flick Carter has saved the life of an injured Scav. But it’s not just the Kingsmen who want to get their hands on the boy and his secrets; there are forces far more dangerous who will stop at nothing, not even murder.
Wanted for a murder she did not commit, Flick is forced to flee. In a town of just 150 people, there’s nowhere to hide. So you run. Or you die.
Note for parents: Contains scenes of death and violence, and very occasional swearing.
