Beyond the Countdown
The Zero Hour Reckoning spared none - not men of God nor men of science. No one could survive; no one could escape it. You can't fight fate.
People in 2271 live uncomplicated lives. Each of them is born with the number 365 scarred on their wrists - a number that begins to dwindle upon reaching the last year of their lives. Once their heart stops, the countdown reaches zero and they are dead. Some live their last year to the fullest, some try to end it on their own terms in defiance of "God", and others, like Aurora Carpenter, live quietly even on their last day.
When a horrific accident takes her life on her last day, the unthinkable happens: she wakes up covered in blood with her wrist permanently reading 00. She survived her own countdown - her own death.
Leaders want her captured. Scientists want her dissected. Religious factions want her dead. The only person on her side is Sheridan, a boy she hardly knows whose countdown resides at only 92 days and the son of Cult Leader, Marcus Booker. Now on the run with few other fugitives, they must fight for their very lives to find the truth behind Rory's revival and the numbers that rule their lives.
This winter, fight fate.
