As the experiment goes nightmarishly wrong, Wolgast secures her escapeóbut he canít stop society's collapse. And as Amy walks alone, across miles and decades, into a future dark with violence and despair, she is filled with the mysterious and terrifying knowledge that only she has the power to save the ruined world.
