Publication date: December 1st 2018
Genres: Adventure, Post-Apocalyptic, Thriller, Young Adult
How far will they go to restore the power?
It’s been lights-out for three months and society is already falling into chaos.
Teenage tech-genius Simon Harper and his team of fellow gamers have been searching for the cause of the outage since it went down. Simon and his twin brother West are often at odds, but when the key to restoring power drops into their hands, they’ll risk everything and join forces to bring it back.
Descend into an epic, young adult adventure, featuring family and friendship with a heart-skipping side of romance by debut authors Deborah Adams and Kimberley Perkins.
Mysterious deaths and disappearances are piling up, and unknown enemies are everywhere. As the brothers make their 500-mile journey to Waypoint they’ll have to decide who they can trust, and which secrets can be told.
“Thanks to its tantalizing pace, well-established consequences, and complicated character development, this novel is worth writing home about. I didn’t feel ready for it to end.” -Independent Book Review

Well, there went his carefully laid-out plans and strict schedule. What was he going to do with this chick? She needed help. That much was obvious. But West could already tell she was one of those people who invited trouble.
And—she was pretty.
Which made no difference.
She’d been standing there, staring at that map with this cute but frustrating resolve on her face. He just knew she was going to attempt the journey to the Ranger’s Station alone. Which might have been suicide considering her lack of any supplies helpful for such a journey.
He felt like he’d done the right thing by bringing her along, but still, he’d regretted the decision almost immediately. After telling him she was from the “north”—whatever that meant—she’d gone on to share every random fact she’d ever stored in her pretty head.
Peeking over his shoulder, he could see bruises darkening under her skin. She’d taken some rough hits, and right now she was chirping on about some rainbow-colored ice cream she’d eaten when she was ten. He kind of wished he could bounce back like that.
Her chattering continued, her voice mixing in with the crickets and other background noises of the forest. Crickets! That was exactly what she reminded him of.
“Hey, Cricket,” he called out, “as fascinating as this is—and I can’t wait to hear what happened once you got three scoops instead of two—I usually like to hike in silence. You know, commune with nature.”
She blinked twice.
“Cricket?” she asked.
“Trust me, it suits you,” he replied. “Anyway, what do you say? Can we try a little communing?”
She glared. “Is this your not-so-subtle way of asking me to shut up?”
“Yeah, that’s about it.”
