Scorched Earth is a powerful dystopian novel that cross two timelines. It is a story of love, war, hate and survival.
Heading home, IT specialist Craig Buffett, steps out of an elevator and into a forest thirty years in the future. He encounters a world foreign to him. Vast, devastated landscapes reach to the horizon, littered with broken glass and twisted metal.
Genetically modified creatures roam the land existing on human blood. A youth drug that does what it claims on the box. And a wormhole controlled by a megalomaniac military leader.
Desperate to get home, Craig adjusts to this world. Accepts this primary function, this base humanity. Deep inside, he has to find the will to step up and do what he must to stop this future from happening.
