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...
9.1 The Farm by Jane Slavin
After a short, sharp coup, power has shifted and a new order asserts control over the country. Meg Pritchard believes she is the leader who can draw together the threads of civilisation.
With the men sent to war, Jenny must help the women of ‘The Farm’ see the truth behind their new society.
9.2 Hearts and Mines by Christopher Hatherall
The Protectorate now holds resources once shared by the Federation. Its enemies are branded terrorists, as they skirmish up and down the country.
Craig wants to strike a decisive blow, while Abby still hopes for reconciliation with her son. Ruth is caught between her friends: can she stop them both from making terrible mistakes?
9.3 Fade Out by Roland Moorea
Robert Malcolm is closing in on the ringleaders still struggling against the Protectorate. Peter Grant has reasons to make this fight personal.
But the fugitives, hiding in an abandoned cinema, find that people are tired of war. When the soldiers come to town, for some, this will be their last stand.
9.4 Conflict by Andrew Smith
The Protectorate tightens its grip on the fragile infrastructure of a country in recovery. All stirrings of rebellion must be crushed.
But Jenny has a plan to unseat its leaders once and for all. And now she, Abby and Peter Grant are heading inexorably towards a final confrontation.
