Publisher's Summary

A beautifully written dystopian thriller set in an underground bunker.

The bunker is a place of safety.

Wolfe is the bunker's resident pharmacist. While the inhabitants wait for the outside world to heal, she doles out ibuprofen, sanitary towels and Xanax—all under the watchful eye of the increasingly erratic and paranoid leader.

The bunker is a place of hope.

But when the leader starts to ask things of Wolfe, favours she can hardly say no to, her world is thrown off its axis once again. Forming an unlikely alliance with the young Doctor Stirling, her troubled assistant Levitt and Canavan—a tattooed giant of a man who's purpose in the bunker is a mystery—Wolfe has to navigate the powder keg of life underground, knowing her every move is being watched.

The bunker is a place of survival.

It's not long before Wolfe is forced to question the sacrifices she's made for her own personal survival, and how much more she is willing to give to stay alive. 

The bunker is a place of danger.

Be ready to go underground

This book. By the end I felt like I’d been living in that bunker with Wolf, Levitt, and Sterling.
The anxiety was nearly crippling and I almost couldn’t finish. The author does an amazing
job of pulling you into the story and feeling all the complicated emotions that would accompany
trying to survive nuclear fall out in a bunker full of strangers. The soul searing loss of privacy
and the devastating physical effects of living without sunlight….every detail is captured with
poignancy and a truth bared down to its bones. I felt the ending was a little abrupt, but it does
not keep me from recommending it. (Not a family member or friend of the author - I always wonder
about that when I see first reviews.)

A must read

This isn’t the kind of genre I’d normally read but a friend recommended it and I’m so glad she did. Such a well written book with complex characters and brilliant twists and turns. I’d highly recommend this book to anyone!
