Wayward

£10.99

Five years ago, they walked across America to a destination only they knew. The sleepwalkers, as the rest of the country named them, were followed by their shepherds: friends and family who gave up everything to protect them. They finally stopped in Ouray, a small town of Colorado that would become one of the last outposts of human civilisation. Because the sleepwalking epidemic was just the first in a chain of events that led to the end of the world and the birth of a new one. The shepherds and the sleepwalkers, now awake, strive to rebuild the world that was taken from them. Among them are Benji, the scientist struggling through grief to lead; Marcy, the former police officer who just wants to protect those she loves; and Shana, the first to become a shepherd and whose bravery is sorely needed. But the people of Ouray are not the only survivors, and the world they’re building is fragile.

Description

The epic sequel to Chuck Wendig’s apocalyptic literary masterpiece WANDERERS.

HOW DO YOU SURVIVE THE END OF THE WORLD?

Five years ago, a group of ordinary Americans fell under the grip of a strange new malady that caused them to sleepwalk across the country. They were followed on their quest by the shepherds: friends and family who gave up everything to protect them.

Their destination, Ouray, became one of the last outposts of civilization, because the sleepwalking epidemic was only the first in a chain of events that led to the end of the world – and the birth of a new one.

But the people of Ouray are not the only survivors, and their new world is fragile. Forces of cruelty and brutality are amassing under the leadership of self-proclaimed president Ed Creel. And in the very heart of Ouray, the most powerful survivor of all is plotting its own vision for the new world: Black Swan, the A.I. who imagined the apocalypse.

Against these threats, they have only one hope: one another. Because the only way to survive the end of the world is together.
