Synopsis

2060: The catastrophic results of climate change lead to mass migrations, whole nations fleeing rising seas and desertification. The world at war: land, water and survival the prize. The survivors split, most scrambling to the purpose-built cities the others fortifying their settlements behind the false security of rings of landmines. Genetic manipulations lead to populations in the cities being freed from greed and violence but this has resulted in the destruction of the drive which made the human race so successful. Imprisoned behind the mines, deprived of resources, the settlements battle famine, natural disasters and despair. Populations everywhere continue to tumble. 2116: Ellen and Bix with their children and their friend Jack have moved away from the City and have settled at Blaisemill to try and gain skills to survive in the wilderness. They are to start opening up the beleaguered settlements and establish Trade Routes. Jack takes on Keira Baha, Blaisemill's black sheep, to be their guide. Many in the village consider that this will prove a mistake.

2164: Karina Morgan, friend and colleague of Maia Linne who with archivist Ris Menai has gone missing presumed dead on a field trip, has taken up the uncompleted work on the Sefuty Chronicles. Working with Keira Baha's recording of events during the three years Ellen and Bix resided in the village and some letters from her friend, Karina puts together this next instalment of the Sefuty Chronicles.
