This title was released in December 2018. It will be exclusively available to buy from the BF website until January 31st 2019, and on general sale after this date.
Four new battles for survival, from the world of Terry Nation's cult-classic series.
The world has ended. The ‘Death’ pandemic crossed continents, sparing only a fraction of the global population.
The survivors are now trying to pick up the pieces and rebuild society - to create a new future.
But with no cities, no laws, no technology, everyone must start over. And the worst of human nature has survived along with the best...
8.1 Bandit Train by Christopher Hatherall
Society is slowly rebuilding. Abby and Jenny are transporting supplies between settlements. Craig is learning how to run the steam engines on lines cleared by Greg Preston.
But there are still those who just want to take. And their train is about to come under attack…
8.2 Robert by Jane Slavin
Once, Robert Malcolm had a complicated life. His wife in an institution, his girlfriend running a struggling business, he was out of the army and without a place in the world.
When the Death came, it meant many things to many people. For Robert, it meant freedom.
8.3 The Lost Boys by Lisa McMullin
Peter Grant is alive. He is with Robert Malcolm’s army of boy soldiers, learning to survive. Building a better future.
But medic Ruth has her suspicions when she visits the camp. And Craig is about to find out what it takes to become a recruit.
8.4 Village of Dust by Roland Moore
Abby, still desperate for the reunion she’s been seeking for years, now knows that Peter is part of an army.
Meanwhile, Jenny realises that someone is drawing plans against her budding Federation. A war is coming, and mother and son are on different sides.
