‘I never thought it would come to this, never in my worst nightmares. No matter how bad things got, how much the government warned us, I still thought we'd be okay.’
When the fog comes and the drums start, the inhabitants of the island tremble: for the satellites are blind in the darkness, and the islanders become prey. The inhabitants are the old, the sick, the poor: dumped on the island with the rest of Society's waste. The island is the end of all hope, until Clancy finds a blind woman living in a secret underground warren, and discovers a reason to fight.
