In the twenty-fifth century, what used to be
called the Midwestern section of the United
States of America, all the way from the Gulf
of Mexico to Canada, has become desert.
The remains of Midwest City, Oklahoma,
now known as Haze Territory, is a barren red
clay desert populated by only a few family
councils. Fourteen-year-old Kyle Haze must
help his family defend the area, just as his
ancestors did over many previous generations.
Means of monetary exchange, transportation,
community, and industry are long gone since
the only active government is that of local
communities. Fighting among area clans is
common when survival is at stake and resources
are scarce. Those remaining in the harsh
environment must migrate, mutate, adapt,
or die. After the Chastain clan attacks his
father, Kyle and his kin are driven from the
only home they've ever known. They set
out to renew their lives up north, a land
foreign to them, while attempting to keep
their family intact.
Kyle must constantly lead them in and out
of life-threatening circumstances, bringing
out the best and worst of humanity in order
to survive another day in their primitive
world and avenge the damage done to his
family by other clans.
