Veronica's only joy is spending time with Bomb Boy, a sentient bomb capable of destroying half of the country.
Veronica grows to love Bomb Boy, as a mother would love a son, and the two escape to suffer through the scorched landscape wrought with deadly winds, wild raiders, vicious animals, and opposing soldiers as they journey to the Outer Quadrants, a land rumored to be untouched by war.
