“The Burn” killed billions. And changed our world beyond recognition.
Captain Nathan Crew, an elite special forces officer, is given command of a task force that has one objective. Find out why the Burn happened and make sure it never happens again.
Their destination is an inhospitable wilderness known simply today as “The Wasteland”, but was once known by another name.
Crew will lead a force that is comprised not only of forces from the UK, but also elements of what remains of the United States military, and a scientific group led by the wonderfully eccentric Professor Jacobs. A man with a passion for the truth, and a need to solve the greatest mystery of the modern age.
Crew, Jacobs and his people will face incredible danger from both the hostile environment of the USA, and hidden enemies within his own task force. But worst of all will uncover a conspiracy that threatens the entire planet with a dark and terrible future, where power will lie in the hands of one individual whose only aspiration is dominion over the entire world, for ever.
