4.6 Stars (5 Reviews)
Genre: Contemporary Fiction | Women’s Fiction | Science Fiction


A woman soldier carrying an unborn child. Her companion a young rescued orphan. Can they survive a single day?

Cold beyond cold and Lauren worried for Anise. The safeness of the ground felt good under their feet but even with the sun’s light they were in danger of freezing. Bitter, raw, beautiful. Their new homeland. Lauren marveled at all her eyes could see. Rows of healthy evergreen spruce trees. A clear blue sky unhaunted by any dead smoke or nuclear ash. Majestic mountains swirled with snow like sugary white icing. Colors and beauty of the world she thought she’d never see again.

Beyond Ruinland is part of a series but you can read it as a standalone story. You can also find it included as a bonus story in Exit Ruinland.
