After Dawn - The Hidden World

“Our life is not easy. But it’s the only one I know – now I’m afraid that even that might be taken away from us.”

The world is poisoned, in Dornwall the inhabitants have adapted to the inhospitable life. No one ventures out of the town without a protective suit, breathing filter and air tester. When the village is attacked by a steel colossus and enemy soldiers, 15-year-old Ember’s life changes overnight: the inhabitants of Dornwall are captured and Ember’s father, her siblings Mina and Ceren and her friend Ryan are also taken away – the Dawn Empire needs workers for the Wandering City. Together with five companions, Ember embarks on a dangerous journey with an uncertain outcome – she has only one goal in mind: to get her family back. But the price she has to pay is high …

“At school we were told that at some point there were several billion people using so many machines that the energy was no longer enough and all the fuel was eventually used up. That was the reason they started fighting. And then the world died. Billions of people. That sounds unimaginable to me. There aren’t even eight hundred living in Dornwall. And it’s one of the bigger cities.”
