Erin Taylor is a high school junior who spends her free time hanging out with her friends, running track, and working two part-time jobs to help keep her family afloat. She plans to become a doctor. But when she and her friends stumble through a tear in the fabric of spacetime, their dreams go up in smoke, and they find themselves fighting for their lives in a brutal new world.
Erin and her companions are pursued by the cruel black-suited warriors of The Court, the cruel masters of this new world. They find a sanctuary among the poor, embattled slaves of The Court. The slaves and their mysterious leader Helen hail Erin as the legendary savior, foretold by prophecy, who will lead the slaves to freedom.
Their new world is technologically primitive, so Erin’s group tries desperately to use their knowledge of 21st-Century science to create weapons that will give their people the upper hand in their uprising against The Court. Their chances look bleak, and just when they believe they’ve made a breakthrough, Erin and her companions run into the sadistic Sons of 1776 and find themselves fighting a war on two fronts.
Amid their struggles, Erin’s group learns that this vicious new world is not really new at all, but a future version of earth itself, racked by the wars that followed the twin disasters of global warming and exhausted energy sources. This epic trilogy follows Erin and her schoolmates as they lead their slave allies in a see-saw battle against the evil powers of this future world.
